A spokesperson for President Donald Trump’s campaign on Wednesday blasted politicians who use “taxpayer funded jobs to try and benefit their family.”
During an interview on Fox News, Gidley made the remark in reference to Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“The corruption is now flowing into his family,” Gidley opined. “And you see that. And I think the American people absolutely care about their politicians using taxpayer-funded jobs to try and benefit their families.”
Although Gidley was referring to Biden’s family, several commenters noted that the campaign aide could also have been talking about Trump’s children.
“Gidley is 100% correct,” one person wrote. “Ivanka and Jared must be held accountable for their actions.”
“I hope that’s on tape and the @ProjectLincoln runs it ad nauseum fit the next 2 weeks,” a comment said.
“The absolute cheek and hypocrisy of his statement. It is utterly incredible,” another commenter remarked.

The fact that his head didn't explode from his own hypocrisy is pretty remarkable.

I believe his campaign is sabotaging him. Hogan is way too smart to say that without knowing how crazy it is.

Trump loses another election court challenge
The US state of Pennsylvania's supreme court dismissed another legal challenge to the election by supporters of President Donald Trump on Saturday, further reducing his already near-impossible odds of overturning the results.
A Republican lawsuit had sought to invalidate mail-in ballots in the battleground state that President-elect Joe Biden won by about 81,000 votes -- or to throw out all votes and allow the state's legislature to decide the winner.
The court dismissed both claims in a unanimous decision, calling the second one an "extraordinary proposition that the court disenfranchise all 6.9 million Pennsylvanians who voted in the general election."
Melania Trump’s memoir plans set off an avalanche of brutal title suggestions
News from Page Six that first lady Melania Trump is planning on writing a memoir about her time in the White House set off an all too predictable flood of title suggestions on social media that were equal parts brutal and hilarious.
According to Page Six, the first lady is planning to write the book and that the income from it will solely be hers allowing her to cash in the past four years like the rest of the Trump family.
