Ivanka Trump brutally mocked after tweet comparing her father to Thomas Jefferson

https://www.alternet.org/2019/10/ivanka-trump-brutally-mocked-after-tweet-comparing-her-father-to-thomas-jefferson/


Written by Alex Henderson October 31, 2019


On Thursday morning — as the House of Representatives was preparing to vote on a resolution to proceed with an impeachment inquiry against President Donald Trump — his daughter, White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump, took to Twitter and made a Donald Trump/Thomas Jefferson comparison. And it wasn’t long before she was lambasted for it by fellow Twitter users.

In her Halloween 2019 tweet, Ivanka Trump quoted a letter that Jefferson (the third president of the United States) wrote to his oldest daughter, Martha Jefferson Randolph, in 1801 during an election crisis: “…surrounded by enemies and spies catching and perverting every word that falls from my lips or flows from my pen, and inventing where facts fail them.” Jefferson was describing the state of politics in Washington, D.C., and after quoting him in her tweet, Ivanka Trump wrote, “Some things never change, dad!”


The implication was that just as Jefferson (who served as president from 1801-1809) was unfairly smeared by politicians in his day, so is her father in 2019. And not surprisingly, many Twitter users disagreed strongly with the comparison.

@ HoarseWisperer angrily responded, “You are the most vapid tool ever to step foot in the White House,” and @Amy_Siskind tweeted, .........................

Journalist David Rothkopf explained why a Donald Trump/Thomas Jefferson comparison was wildly inappropriate, posting, “So, Ivanka, couple things: a.) Jefferson worked his whole life to ensure the president was not above the law b.) Jefferson was the first top official to call for the impeachment of a president (Washington) for being too close a foreign nation (when he approved the Jay Treaty).”

Twitter user @maydaymindy9 described the president’s daughter as “an empty vessel in a plastic casing,” while @RobinMadel posted, “Sorry, Ivanka doesn’t history very well.” And @Emolclause explained, “White House staffers didn’t throw up their hands in exasperation over Thomas Jefferson’s LIES.”...............................

1. You'ld think she would have learned by now to shut up already.

Public opinion hasn’t changed since the last time you popped off. We all know this is 100% about kissing daddy’s ass. Can’t you just do that in private?

13. Well, obviously, she has inherited her father's smarts.

Or, more accurately, his complete and utter lack of them. The stupid apple has not fallen far from the stupid tree. The same goes for her brothers. That family must have a collective IQ of 10.

It's interesting Ivanka picked this example because the thing Jefferson's enemies were accusing him of -- fathering a child with a slave -- was absolutely something he did. 6 times as a matter of fact. Jefferson was bemoaning being called out for something he actually did.

8. I'm going shallow here, but I have to ask.

Disclaimer: I am not attacking her for her looks.

I'm just curious. Her skin is not only flawless, it looks plastic to me. What does she do to make her face look like a Barbie doll? I'm serious here. What sort of procedures or products would produce that affect?

She’s trying to keep that youthful look for daddy.

Daddy likes ‘em young.

14. I'm sure she has her own make-up artist, too.

I remember right after her asshole father started squatting in the White House, there was talk of building a "glam room." It's all about appearances with these scumbags.

18. Every time one of his spawn opens their mouths or sends a tweet, they only do more to prove that

they are just as stupid as their father. You would think they would have learned to lay low by now, but they seem to be begging us to ridicule them.

I'm beginning to wonder if this is some kind of warped strategy to appear persecuted and pitiable in case they end up in front of a jury someday soon. We are SO mean to them!

24. Well, I think that Dolt45 and Thomas Jefferson have a lot in common!

Two eyes, two hands, two legs, two arms, two ears, one ass (although Jefferson's was probably not "239" pounds), one nose, one heart, although debatable in Trump's case, two lungs...God damn, there are p!entry of similarities.

One difference of course is that Jefferson was brilliant and Trump has no brain, but who says that brains are important in a president? Certainly not contemporary Republicans.

RESIST!

All of her fashion styles are copycat knockoffs, too. Not an original thought in that pea brain of hers.
