Ivanka Couldn’t Wait to Have Her “Princess Moment”

A new book, Born Trump: Inside America’s First Family is coming out soon but an excerpt has already been published in Vanity Fair.  It details how Ivanka in particular “seized on the opportunity” presented by Trump’s presidential win, complete with stars in her eyes about becoming American royalty.

After her father surprised the whole world by winning the election, Ivanka was apparently excited to have her “princess moment”.  One of Ivanka’s friends apparently said, “I told her it’s an inauguration, not a coronation.”  Rather than look up those words in a dictionary, Ivanka plowed ahead and insisted on the inauguration parade, interested in the  pageantry and symbolism of the occasion – and her “princess moment”.  Fox explains, “The sentiment was that Americans wanted a royal family.”

And the American people would choose the Trump family if they really did want a royal family?  The Trumps, following Donald’s lead, seem to ignore the fact that Donald Trump did not win the popular vote.  As well, there would be a few (dozen!) better alternatives if this was really the case.

“The Trumps have somewhat fancied themselves as a modern version of the Kennedys,” Fox writes in her book.  Sure, except for the serving in a war, engaging in public service and having a vision for the good of the entire country and not being self-absorbed assholes, they are exactly like the Kennedys.

Of her role her Daddy’s new reality, Ivanka “seemed particularly attuned to the stagecraft,” according to Fox, and strategized ways to insert herself into some kind of future White House role during the transition period. Unfortunately, Ivanka hasn’t proven to be that adept at the “stagecraft” she is attuned to – she regularly creates controversy and PR fiascos, as well as becoming notorious for her “tone-deaf” social media posts.

Clearly, Ivanka is only a “princess” to her father.

My question is, when the King is Shit-for-Brains, does it mean you’re Princess Turd?

SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh said he would ‘put the nail’ in independent counsel ruling

In a 2016 video, Judge Kavanaugh argued that he would overturn Morrison v. Olson, a Supreme Court ruling that underpins the appointment of independent counsels. The ruling largely fell out of favor after Ken Starr’s turn in the Clinton era. As FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver points out, however, Kavanaugh volunteered the example by himself, revealing something about his views on Supreme Court precedent.

Sarah Sanders: We’re working on “bold reforms” to stop Russian election interference

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration is working on “bold reforms” to ensure Russian interference in US elections never happens again.

Sanders was asked if Trump sees Russian meddling in the 2016 election as “an attack on democracy.”

The President has faced continued furor over his remarks about election meddling made alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

Here’s what Sanders said today:

The President thinks that we have to focus on securing our election integrity and our election systems, which is why he has spent so much time with his administration making sure that this doesn’t happen again. Let’s not forget this didn’t happen under President Trump’s watch. This happened under the Obama administration. We’re taking steps, we’re making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again.

Here’s what the White House says Trump and Putin talked about in their private meeting

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders listed a number of topics that were included in President Trump’s private one-on-one meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Sanders listed Syrian humanitarian aid, Israeli security, North Korea, denuclearization, Ukraine and the occupation of Crimea, reducing Russian and US nuclear arsenals, and “your favorite topic” Russian interference in elections.

Sanders said the meeting reflected the “beginning of the dialogue with Russia and our administration and theirs and we’re going to continue working through those things.”

Sanders also said Putin’s proposal of having Russian prosecutors question US officials, including former US ambassador to Russia Mike McFaul, arose in Trump’s meeting, but she said no agreements were reached.

“He said it was an interesting idea. He didn’t commit to anything,” Sanders said. “We’ve committed to nothing.”
