in many ways Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner‘s tenure in Washington did not go as hoped, given that they had not hoped that working for their father would lead to Kushner among others become a worldwide punchline; the first daughter is called a “useless cunt”; the people of New York are aggressively (and rightly) driving them out of town; and their reputation is generally destroyed. In another way, however, her time in the White House worked extremely good for them: Kushner’s four-year Saudi ass-kissing and murder pardons resulted in a $2 billion check from the kingdom for his newly formed private equity firm. Note: That’s on top of the up to $640 million the duo reportedly made in outside revenue while working as consultants donald trump, thanks in part to their decision to disregard conflict of interest laws.
And so it probably was from that perspective – knowing that they were probably a week away from a traveling billboard showing their faces as boils on society’s asshole, and also knowing that they had already abused the presidency, to wring out every last dollar they could—that Ivanka took to Instagram last night, around the time her father was announcing his third run for office, to write that she would not be involved:
In a statement about what we suspect was the only sympathetic outlet she could find, Ivanka elaborated, telling Fox News that she was “extremely close” to her vote-denying, insurgency-promoting father. She added: “That hasn’t changed and never will. I’ve had many roles over the years, but daughter is one of the most fundamental and consequential. I love this time with my kids, love life in Miami and the freedom and privacy of returning to private enterprise. This was one of the greatest times of my life.” Noting that her three children are “at a critical age,” she and Kushner said she and Kushner are “happy where we are and we will continue to support my father — as his children.” . She concluded by saying that while she “never intended to go into politics,” she was “very proud” of what she was able to “achieve” while working in the White House.
In particular, she did not condemn any of the horrific things her father did during his tenure, the two years of lies he lied about stealing the 2020 election or the violent uprising he instigated that left several dead. told.
It was reported Monday that Trump spent the weekend convincing Kushner and Ivanka to appear on stage with him at his 2024 announcement. Not only didn’t that happen, but Ivanka wasn’t even in Mar-a-Lago when he delivered it (Kushner appeared in the crowd next to brother-in-law Eric Trump).
Again, however, there’s no reason to believe that Ivanka’s absence and statements (and Kushner’s alleged hand-washing of Trump) is because the couple realizes that Donald Trump was one of the worst presidents in history, or that he did a lot of things wrong or so they are ashamed to have made his four-year reign of terror possible. The only take away from here is that they understand how unpopular he has become and that working for him made them look bad by association. They don’t like that – and now that they have money in the bank, they want credit for capturing the weakest of non-standers.
