The days after Pelosi & Co. gave their adversary a preview of his newly-minted nightmare, via the recent announcement of an impeachment inquiry, a slew of Trump’s staunch loyalists dared to venture into the murky territory of defending the indefensible.
Rudy Giuliani the most visible of the bunch has been doing way more harm than good with his overly aggressive approach that showcases the antics of a foul-mouthed instigator. And the rest of the soldiers for Trump, including Kevin McCarthy, Jim Jordan, Lindsey Graham, and even the non-working press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, have all been vocally supportive of the president’s high crimes and misdemeanors.
But remarkably, we have yet to hear anything from the two trusted “senior advisers” to the staggeringly incompetent president, who knowingly risked a security breach, against the advice of those who were ultimately dismissed for rightfully sharing their concerns about assigning White House badges to his unqualified daughter and son-in-law.
Both Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have been indulging in the privilege of being intimately associated with our national terrorizer without bearing the consequences of their conspiratorial roles.
Especially during the controversial episodes of crimes against humanity with the ongoing migrant crisis, and the horrific shooting massacre by a radicalized White terrorist, who took his cue to target Mexicans from the White nationalist in the Oval Office.
Mainstream media and conservative outlets are indistinguishable when it comes to the soft cushion coverage of the president’s favorite daughter, and a lot of it has to do with the societal coddling of White women, who are instinctively regarded through the lenses of fragility for the validation of their victimhood.
Prominent outlets like The New York Times, The Atlantic, CNN.com, are guilty of publishing periodic essays that praise the enviable stealthiness of the first daughter and her diligent hubby as they comfortably juggle the political landscape of D.C. with the glamorousness of a jet-setting existence.
Ivanka has been able to dodge the bullets of accusations and judgments that should be pummeling her practiced reluctance to boldly exert her independence and authority in matters that involve the caging of migrant babies, the hot-button issues of abortion laws and the epidemic of gun violence.
Instead, outlets are more interested in heightening the delectable mysteriousness of the undercover couple, who are fascinatingly weathering the turbulence of this toxic and lawless presidency without the visible scars to serve as evidence of their turmoil.
Jared Kushner has managed to evade close scrutiny of his heavy participation in foreign affairs and high stakes negotiations, despite the hovering proof of his inexperience, which breeds the inefficiency that spearheads the ill-fated alliances with strategically-aligned partners like Saudi Arabia.
It was Kushner who wholeheartedly inserted himself in the PR crisis, stemming from the brutal slaying of Washington Post columnist, Jamal Khashoggi, by offering his services to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, with helpful recommendations on how the Saudi royal could seamlessly combat the allegations of how he ordered Khashoggi’s execution.
Kushner is also occupied with the task of drafting ambitious immigration policies, that will reflect the hostility of this administration towards Black and Brown visa holders or applicants from “shithole”countries. The goal is to drastically complicate the re-entry process of visitors from territories that don’t boast a population resembling Trump’s preferred option of “Norway.”
And Ivanka has been quite busy with frequent “faux-activism” trips to developing countries, where she is seen happily engaging with Black and Brown women, in staged photo ops that essentially capture the passionate pursuits of a privileged White woman, who is capitalizing on the direness of the less fortunate in the places her father fondly calls “shitholes,” to bolster her career trajectory.
The “Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative,” wasn’t the brainchild of Ivanka Trump.
The fact that she’s allowed to travel the world as a self-assigned representative of a global movement that was already in motion way before she feigned interest doesn’t automatically grant her permission to misleadingly take ownership of the groundwork that was previously implemented.
Ivanka Trump has always been her father’s daughter, and throughout his illegal presidency, she has exhibited warning signs that don’t quite compliment the generic editorial write-ups that aim to cleanse her from the filth of her dysfunctional workplace.
During an interview with Good Morning America staple, Deborah Roberts, Ivanka was asked about her email controversy that damningly matches the allegations that destroyed the presidential aspirations of Hillary Clinton.
And the blunt response recalled her father’s tendency to swap out the obvious truth with blatant lies.
Not too long ago, social media users were engaged in a shame fest, after it was revealed that while attending a fundraising event in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, the pampered first daughter proudly cited her father’s moral compass as her guide and inspiration.
This isn’t a shocker when you observe Ivanka’s inaction during the volatile period when her father spewed out racist rants attacking four Congresswomen of color, by ordering them to return to their “totally broken and crime infested place,” as punishment for their vocal denouncement of our thug-in-chief.
It seems that when it comes to lending support to victims of color who are under siege by the enabled brutality of reckless dictators, Ivanka prefers to stand in solidarity with foreigners, who rightfully deserve the allyship, but the irony of her refusal to empathize with victims of her father’s bigoted and sexist abuse on her home turf can’t be downplayed.
Of course when Ivanka does step out of character in an effort to provide some comfort to a grieving nation after back-to-back episodes of domestic terrorism from the shooting massacres that hit El Paso, Texas, and Dayton Ohio, she does it with the stinging retaliation that maximizes the currency of Black pain for the gain of sweet vengeance.
Her father’s campaign ran on the promise of restoring the sovereignty of Whiteness after the betrayal of the Obama years. And the White supremacist rallies from those early days felt like the outdoor festivities of the KKK, complete with hate-filled rhetoric that vilified Mexicans, migrants and Muslim-Americans.
The White terrorist who shot up the Walmart in El Paso, was radicalized by Trump’s offensive summation of Mexicans, and that truth encouraged Democratic presidential hopefuls, notably Beto O’Rourke, who was born and bred in El Paso, to actively hold the president accountable for orchestrating this deadly climate of hostility.
Ivanka released the standard statement of condolences hours after the mass shootings, but days later, she tweeted out a randomly offensive set of messages, that reeked of disingenuousness when you consider that it replicated her father’s playbook, that dictates centering the systemic violence of notable Black cities as the method of deflection.
Aside from the gross display of superiority, that allowed for the audacity to speak about issues affecting communities that she has never previously expressed genuine interest in, when it comes to the brainstorming of solutions, there’s also the lack of cold hard facts to back up her stats.
Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot was understandably “livid” by Ivanka Trump’s ill-advised tweets that were ridden with errors that could’ve been avoided if the mascot of White feminism had bothered to do her research.
“It wasn’t a playground, it was a park. It wasn’t seven dead. It wasn’t 52 wounded in one incident, which is what this suggests. It’s misleading,”
“It’s important when we’re talking about people’s lives to actually get the facts correct, which one can easily do if you actually cared about getting it right.”
Ivanka’s shameful attempts to utilize the currency of Black pain to distract from her father’s vital contribution to the hysteria that’s fueling the normalization of White terrorism, by targeting the vulnerable populations that the president freely terrorizes is a major strike against her.
It’s also solid proof of why she and her husband, Jared, have opted to stay out of the line of fire, as the nation accommodates the terrifying consequences of a criminalized establishment that has evolved into the nefarious extension of the Trump Family business.
While Trump’s legendary tantrums take a turn for the worse, as the House Committee doles out subpoenas to his glorified bodyguards, who can’t escape their proven participation in illegal activities on behalf of their criminal boss, it appears that his beloved daughter has decided to focus on more important shit, like posting mind-boggling images that remove her from the epicenter of a national emergency.
And when she’s not blissfully boasting about her pets and family members, Ivanka’s twitter page remains littered with pictorials of her latest exploits, that’s powered by the misinformation about a booming economy, and the glowing reviews of her accumulating wins, that hint about a future presidential run.
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are certainly not innocent bystanders in this train wreck of a presidency, that’s currently posing a threat to our national security.
The diseased status of the GOP has exposed the lethality of White supremacy with the durable anchor of White feminism.
It’s difficult to fathom how the toasted couple of the elite world of politics are able to expertly avoid the avalanche of inquisitions about their questionable work ethic and judgment calls; coupled with the considerable influence they wield over a man-baby, who ridiculously paraded his out-of-place daughter , around the G20 summit this past summer.
As we brace for the harrowing months ahead, and watch the frightening meltdown of an unhinged former reality TV star, who mistakenly believed that his access to absolute power meant he could do whatever the fuck he wants without restraint; we will also pay attention to the “senior advisers” who clearly failed at the job that we now know for sure, they weren’t equipped to handle with the required professionalism.
It’s time to burst the over-bloated ballon, holding the unearned privileges of “Javanka.”
