Opinion: Ivanka need to find something new…

I know I’m late to this, but I had to address this, as the White House Advisor and oldest child to the President of the Republic. The symbol of nepotism, inept administration and clueless on governance. Ivanka Trump rose for yet another occasion she was not qualified for.

She is only at the White House, because she’s the daughter of the President. Ivanka isn’t there for her wits, her career or her education. As a person she has sold the image of Trump, licensed products and gotten trademarks to sell products. However, she has never made any legislation or policy to save her soul.

That is why in the midst of a recession, in the midst of a global pandemic. A pandemic that is causing the recession. The 18 million adults losing their jobs, 13% unemployed, where the state is trying to slash their benefits and help them in the hour of need. As they are living hand to mouth. In the beginning of the pandemic they got a small 600 dollar check, but that isn’t cutting it. That’s isn’t covering a mortgage, car-notes and student debt. It is nearly being enough for a while paying the groceries.

It is just entitlement of her fronting this. Not trying fix benefits or welfare checks while awaiting an upturn in the economy. No, this is just boosting the egos of a few CEOs and Executives. Make a publicity stunt and call it an evening. While the economy is still struggling, less people can work and the ones who does. Are afraid they either loose their jobs or catch COVID-19. It is a catch 22, either you keep your job or you get sick. The only ones winning is the stakeholders and the shareholders. They can print new money on the hard work of others labour.

That is why Ivanka seems so out of line. She has never applied for a job. Not like she have had the need to do an interview or change profession. Ivanka became an Executive and a boss in the Trump Organization, because of her birthright. Not because of her skill or anything.

This is why its infuriating that someone like her. The Nepotism Barbie, the Marie Antoinette of United States tells the public to eat cake, while they cannot afford bread. The recession and tanking of the economy is evident. The pandemic that this administration has not stagnated or even overcome. They have made it worse and no coherent message to defeat it. Only making core states harder hit by it and most likely more people losing their jobs or their lives.

It is a race for self-destruction. Where Ivanka is showing how far from reality her and the rest of the White House is. If they could get rid of their silver spoons, Michelin dinners and luxurious goods. Live like common folks … and maybe feel their pain. However, Ivanka and Jared would never do that. They rather live lavish on inherited money and be bourgeois. That is who they are.

Ivanka shows her lack of understanding. The White House doing this shows that they think publicity stunts is fixing things. Instead of having more financial stimulus and financial help for the ones in dire need. However, the Republicans and the President have blocked that. They are not willing to drop a dime on the ones in the trenches. These people rather feed Wall Street and the 1%. Than think of the working class and the hardest hit by the circumstances hitting them.

They are just telling the soon homeless, the ones starving and the ones not getting a pay-check. “Do something new” and get another profession. Become a singer, make cakes or hustle on the avenue. Ivanka couldn’t even do a week at a factory, but she is telling an unemployed person to change jobs. When nobody is hiring. That is insane. This isn’t some “Eat Pray Love” yoga session or finding your inner Zen. No, this is the real-life hardships for millions of Americans. Peace.
