Ivanka Trump set to get West Wing office

vanka Trump, who moved to Washington, D.C., saying she would play no formal role in her father’s administration, is now officially setting up shop in the White House.

The powerful first daughter has secured her own office on the West Wing’s second floor — a space next to senior adviser Dina Powell, who was recently promoted to a position on the National Security Council. She is also in the process of obtaining a security clearance, and is set to receive government-issued communications devices this week.

In everything but name, the first daughter is settling in as what appears to be a full-time staffer in her father’s administration, with a broad and growing portfolio — except she is not being sworn in, will hold no official position, and is not pocketing a salary, her attorney said.

Ivanka Trump’s role, according to her attorney Jamie Gorelick, will be to serve as the president’s “eyes and ears” while providing broad-ranging advice, not just limited to women’s empowerment issues. Last week, for instance, Ivanka Trump raised eyebrows when she was seated next to Angela Merkel for the German chancellor’s first official visit to Trump’s White House.

1. The President needs a baby sitter?

Remember how the Tea Baggers came unglued when Michelle Obama's mother moved into the White House to help look after Sasha and Malia? She wasn't drawing any pay, and she didn't have any official duties, but boy did it unleash a torrent of uninformed invective!

What do we hear from the Tea Baggers about Jared and Ivanka?

2. Not usually one to judge or stereotype, but

Ivanka hardly looks capable of operating a microwave properly.

3. Not to worry,

I think they've removed all the microwave ovens for the obvious reasons.

4. Sooooo, is she to be given the same level of clearance as the "President" ?

"Our view is that the conservative approach is for Ivanka to voluntarily comply with the rules that would apply if she were a government employee, even though she is not,"

5. ...and a child shall lead them.

A completely unqualified child, mind you.

(On edit) To specifically reply to your post, Crash, the first time she has access to material she isn't supposed to have, I want elected Dems to start screaming their heads off for her prosecution. I'm tired of this IOKIYAR bullshit, I'm to the point where illegal is ILLEGAL, and let's start putting fucking heads on spikes. I could care less how the Deplorable feel about it either. If they don't LIKE IT, then they can stop voting for CRIMINALS.
