Ivanka Trump was instrumental in Michael Flynn becoming national security adviser, report says

Friday brought another reminder that Ivanka Trump may have massively downplayed her role in her fatherís presidential campaign, transition and White House administration.

While Ivanka famously said she didnít like to get involved much in politics, it appears now that she and her husband Jared Kushner have been major influences in some of President Donald Trumpís most controversial hiring and firing decisions, including the decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey, which led to the appointment of special counsel Robert Mueller.

Now it turns out that Ivanka Trump was instrumental in bringing Michael T. Flynn into her fatherís administration to serve as national security adviser, according to a report in the New Yorker.

This report, from late October, is worth revisiting after Flynn on Friday pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about conversations he had with the Russian ambassador last December.

6. "Less than amateurs" is even more correct than you might realize.

An "amateur" (from the French verb to love) participates in an endeavour for the love of it (as opposed to the professional who, while loving it, also gets paid for it).

The Trump family is there, not for the love of country, but solely for themselves and their bank accounts.

7. Sad

 

Ivanka is sad, she is tired of paying 4 dollars a day in her sweatshops in China and was hoping to hire the kidnapped children for 2 dollars a day. The deal has fallen through and she is very unhappy.

10. I can't believe that airhead actually has an active role in our nation's government

Useless, corrupt and irritatingly entrenched.
