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?
