Donald Trump attended the Gridiron Club dinner last year, but this year, his daughter went in his place. Princess Ivanka must have felt uncomfortable sticking her foot in her mouth repeatedly instead of using self-deprecating humor which is a theme at the high-end event. The president’s oldest daughter said that her father had asked her to appear “just this afternoon” so she didn’t have time to write any jokes and it appears she was about as prepared as Donald was for the summit with Kim Jong-un in Vietnam — which turned into the Art Of No Deal.
Last week, Ivanka and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sparred on Twitter over the newly minted congresswoman’s support for a universal job guarantee that is included in the Green New Deal. Ivanka, an heiress, said that people don’t “want to be given something” and added that she believes “people want to work for what they get.” She presumably said that after removing the silver spoon from her mouth.
So, the scandal-plagued first daughter responded to the backlash at the event.
“The press seems to think that it’s ironic that I, born of great privilege, think that people want to work for what they are given,” Ivanka said. “As if being Donald Trump’s daughter isn’t the hardest job in the world.”
That didn’t go down well at all.
I would love for her to come visit the shelters here in Baltimore or come sit with a foster youth & give this same speech. The ongoing callousness of this family is really something

Oh yea… being born a billionaire is one of the toughest jobs on earth. Here’s my tiny violin just for you.

Sure, constantly avoiding indictment can be exhausting.

Wow self awareness really isn’t a thing with these people is it

So she continues to attack the Congresswoman. Ivanka who took a job she is grossly unqualified for, hasn’t separated from her businesses (in violation of the Constitution) and lied on her security forms along with her husband (and lied about lying) plays the victim.
Okay got it.

Oh , geez, must be so difficult for her. Nannies, cooks, housekeepers, chauffeurs. Designer clothing, shoes, handbags, cosmetic surgery…….how does she stand it?

Obviously why she lives a quiet life away from the spotlight and goes by Ivanka Kushner.

I bet she cries into her satin-gold pillowcase every night.

This is what hard work looks like, Princess.

Suspect working in a sweatshop to produce tacky clothes for an heiress’ line might be worse.

Being a daughter isn’t a job. She chose to work with the criminals in the White House, possibly to enhance her brand, but that hasn’t worked out well for the billionaire’s daughter. There are no members of this awful family who understand how real people live. Or what it was like for furloughed workers who were worried about how to pay their electricity bills. Or, the American people who are getting far less in their tax returns this year because wealthy people like Ivanka wanted a tax break.
Go home, Ivanka, you’re drunk.
