Jared and Ivanka are Tom and Daisy from The Great Gatsby

"They were careless people, Tom and Daisy. They smashed up creatures and things, then retreated back into their money, or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made."

There's even a parallel to the killing of Khashoggi with Myrtle Wilson.

Rich without really having money. And he has a thing for Daisey. I'm ready for the swimming pool scene!

12. Gatsby was 100 times better than Trump is...

...and--like Nick Carroway--I don't even particularly approve of Gatsby...

14. Gatsby was full of shit. But he understood that.

Trump doesn't understand that. So Gatsby is a better character. But Gatsby is still fucked up...and a mirror of a country that was becoming equally fucked up.
