Ivanka Trump obsessed with status, says former friend in tell-all essay

Ivanka Trump shared her father’s craving for money and praise – and his apparent disdain for poor people – from a young age, according to a former schoolfriend who has written a tell-all essay.

Donald Trump’s daughter was obsessed with status and used to blame classmates for her infractions of school rules while projecting a refined persona, Lysandra Ohrstrom, who was a maid of honour at her wedding, claimed in Vanity Fair.

“She had the Trump radar for status, money, and power, and her dad’s instinct to throw others under the bus to save herself,” alleged Ohrstrom, who described Ivanka, 39, as her best friend growing up.

In the most scathing passage, Ohrstrom claimed that in their mid-20s she recommended to her friend the book Empire Falls, a Pulitzer prize-winning novel by Richard Russo about working-class characters in a small town in Maine.

“‘Ly, why would you tell me to read a book about fucking poor people?’ I remember Ivanka saying,” she wrote. “‘What part of you thinks I would be interested in this?’”

1. and so -- in her post WH life, she will be surrounded by sycophants and shunned by decent people

She can contribute big bucks to the symphony and ballet, but it won't get her invites to the parties of the social elites. She's already decided to move to FL, because NY will shun her, and she knows it. Assuming of course that she's not in prison for tax fraud.

4. Sycophants need to be paid or receive benefits, not sure Ivanka will be able to provide either

6. She has plenty of money, millions

I'm sure there are plenty of MAGAts, who think it's swell to be in her orbit. But decent people, not so much. I can't wait to see her run for some elected office and fall on her face.
