Is the mindblowing lack of self-awareness in these dolts genetic or acquired? pic.twitter.com/oTS7rhoTwz

Jia Tolentino, in the New Yorker, on Ivanka’s own memoir:
… When Ivanka was a kid, she got frustrated because she couldn’t set up a lemonade stand in Trump Tower. “We had no such advantages,” she writes, meaning, in this case, an ordinary home on an ordinary street. She and her brothers finally tried to sell lemonade at their summer place in Connecticut, but their neighborhood was so ritzy that there was no foot traffic. “As good fortune would have it, we had a bodyguard that summer,” she writes. They persuaded their bodyguard to buy lemonade, and then their driver, and then the maids, who “dug deep for their spare change.” The lesson, she says, is that the kids “made the best of a bad situation.” In another early business story, she and her brothers made fake Native American arrowheads, buried them in the woods, dug them up while playing with their friends, and sold the arrowheads to their friends for five dollars each…
Family values: Bully the help into paying for your luxuries, and scam your ‘friends’ with fake goods. I’ll bet her old man was genuinely proud of her when she told him about it, too.
All proud moments for the folks, I am sure.
The Trump rot is staggering to behold…
What a wretched set of a disgusting family.
Outside of her father, Ivanka is the top of my list of traitors I want to see in prison. She’s the worst of the kids because she’s the favorite. She’s treasoning all over the globe. Cannot wait for Mueller to come for her.
AOC ripped her several new ones,
As did most of twitter.

Was Ivanka’s book ghost-written by the staff of The Onion?
She’s a millimeter away from “Let them eat cake.”
I’m haunted by the thought of the maids, who were probably illegal immigrants paid far below minimum wage, having to cough up “spare change” that probably took food out of their children’s mouths for these spoiled brats who are proud of learning to screw over the little people.
Everbody below supervisor in the Crime Family was an undocumented immigrant, not just the maids.
The day the MSM stops ignoring shit, and selling shit, and asks The Bloat, “ given your crackdown on undocumented labour, how are you going to manage to keep your companies running?” is the day they die.
@Mary G: No only that, it sounds like the kids were using frozen concentrate or some such rather than making it from scratch, because juicing all those lemons requires effort.
Probably Country Time powder.
Ivanka is too dumb to understand how bad those stories in her memoir make her look to regular people. Reminds me of Romney telling that awful story about forcing his dog to ride on the roof of his car in the cold for a family trip to Canada. Made him look like the horrible, heartless man he is.
@tokyokie: What? They just made the maids juice them. And then made the maids buy it. Either that or they get deported.
this is kind of like mansplaining but entitled heiresssplaining instead. You know, when someone thinks they must explain things they know nothing about to you in slow, simple terms because people like you and I (women in mainsplaining, working people in heiressplaining) are just a little to slow to understand their brilliance.
“Islamabad, Pakistan – Pakistan shot down two Indian air force fighter jets and launched air strikes at six targets in Indian-administered Kashmir, its military says, in a dramatic ratcheting up of tensions between the two nuclear armed neighbours.”
Volks, not folks.
One recoils from contemplating the panoply of incidents she was too reticent to share,
I getva little tired of the media and “hot takes”.
The Dutch busted a 90,000 bottle delivery of $4 vodka to the DPRK.
Wisecracks, jokes, Little Kim’s after party.
The reality is that the DPRK smuggles booze, sells it to the Yakuzo in Japan, as a cash flow.
If you ever wanted to know what the Trump kids’ life was like as children, you could always watch Jamie Johnson’s “Born Rich”.
*spoiler alert* it’s not flattering!
I hope I live long enough to see the entire family behind bars, and the disasters they’ve wrought undone.
But given the usual unwillingness to make the “wealthy” (I don’t consider the Traitor-in-Chief, as a thousandaire, “wealthy,” but most of America does) and powerful pay for their crimes, that’s probably a futile hope. But, hey, a kid’s gotta hope.
Pair this with Wilbur Ross’s statement that unpaid federal workers shouldn’t worry about being unpaid because they could get low-interest loans. //

And we’ve known it for a long time… :-(

@Another Scott: This kind of behavior is a hallmark of narcissism: their absence of self esteem bends the truth the way a black hole bends approaching light, and the stories stay engrained in the bent version.
I remember someone saying in the Bush II years that W would explain things he didn’t understand to the press in very slow and simple terms because it was the way someone else had had to explain it to him.
I think that’s the same reason Ivanka does it. She is Dunning-Kruger in heels made from someone else’s design.
Born into a life of crime.
