Michael Wolff’s best seller, “Fire and Fury,” recounted a conversation between Jared and Ivanka on election night, wherein they batted back and forth the idea of which one of them would become the next Republican president of the United States after Big Daddy Trump. Evidently, that debate concluded in Ivanka winning. Fox News picked up on the notion and predicted that Ivanka would succeed Trump as president, which, alas, was in conflict with the Trinity Broadcasting Network, which said Mike Pence would succeed Trump. Apparently, both networks just assumed that the Democrats would all vanish in the rapture or something — which might be just as well, considering how awful the current political climate is.
In any event, according to a new book, “Kushner, Inc.” to be released March 19, Ivanka believes she will be president and wants to be, in order to start a Trump “dynasty.” Oh, my ears and whiskers. Guardian:
For her part, Ivanka Trump is focused on cementing a Trump dynasty to rival the Kennedys and Bushes by becoming commander-in-chief herself one day, according to [author Vicki] Ward. “She thinks she’s going to be president of the United States,” [Gary] Cohn is quoted as saying.
Can you just stop a moment and parse together a Trump dynasty, just for the hell of it? Rep. Donald Trump, Jr.? And maybe he and his squeeze, Kimberly Giulfoyle, can get married, but maintain houses in separate districts, so that she can become a congresswoman, too. Then she can show her photo album of dick pics of male colleagues at Fox News around congress. Nancy Pelosi would have an opinion about that, I’ll bet.
And then Eric could run for Governor of New York. That would be amusing. Or, maybe Senator. Listen, if you think this is insane, Michael Cohen was talking about running for the Mayor of New York City on election night, again, according to Wolff. “They can’t fuck with us now,” he said. The election of Trump was fueling a lot of mad schemes that night, not to mention lighting a fire under the KKK and the neo-Nazis, who got their regalia out of the mothballs and marched in the streets the very next day.
If Ivanka did become president, she would be very much daddy’s girl, insofar as a lot of people who work for her hate her guts, just like Trump is hated.
Ward’s book portrays Kushner and Ivanka Trump as relentlessly ambitious operators who are loathed by many forced to work with them. She reports that White House staffers mocked Kushner as the “secretary of everything” for his wide-ranging meddling and derided Ivanka Trump’s team as Habi – “home of all bad ideas”.
You may recall that Steve Bannon hated Kushner, and that Javanka is credited with having put the knife in his back.
Bannon recalls Kushner furiously shouting at him at the White House in 2017 after he confronted Kushner about holding secret talks with senators on immigration reform. “He goes from a little boy to, like, this fucking devil,” Bannon is quoted as saying.
Bannon also claims to have told Ivanka Trump: “Go fuck yourself … you are nothing” in front of her father, during an argument over who was the bigger leaker to the media. Ivanka Trump is said to have called Bannon a “fucking liar”.
This encounter with Bannon was reported elsewhere. Ivanka ostensibly replied to Bannon, “I am the First Daughter.” She believes that title to have some significance on the par of Hand of the King. First Daughters have never set policy before. Maybe we should get Chelsea on the horn and get her take on it?
In any event, Ivanka apparently has quite a bit of ambition. It will be an interesting eye opener when she finds out, in the fullness of time, that she and hubby were just “playing government” as John Kelly is quoted saying about them. And that after this shitshow closes out of town, Javanka will be lucky to get invited to D-list New York socialite parties. Ivanka is a pathetic little rich girl, totally in over her head, and she has no.fucking.clue.
