Ivanka Trump leads meeting at White House in father's absence

Source: Independent

Ivanka Trump led a roundtable about human trafficking with members of Congress at the White House, while her father Donald Trump delivered a commencement address to cadets graduating from the US Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut.

The meeting, attended by several Democrats and Republicans – including House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy – seems to be another sign of Ms Trump’s quickly growing role in the administration.

4. I believe Russian mafia are the leaders

in the world for profiting from human trafficking

Perhaps she should ask her father why he is so cozy with the russian mafia?

5. To be fair

She's probably has some bona fides in the human trafficking area what with her father being a customer and all.

9. Ivanka and Jared

are on this trip with tRump. A horde of big business and financial dealers are along, too. Ivanka would have more credibility if she did something about the slave labor she uses in China to make her crappy rip offs from other designers. Those Steve Harvey style teeth are horrible. she needs a different dentist. The entire tRump family think they are special. They are - especially repulsive.

12. Every darn day

Usually multiple times a day there are things that outrage me about the current resident of the White House. I stopped watching the "news" shows, but I can't give up my DU. This is disgusting.

Peace

14. I'm sure all of the Congressmen with decades of experience

I'm sure that all of the Congressmen with countless decades of experience in government, really love being "led" by a young, inexperienced, and basically untested, privileged mini-Donald.

Not sexist, not ageist, she is just not remotely qualified to be anywhere near presiding over a meeting at the White House.

20. Trump probably arranged having this meeting while he was away

And put Ivanka in charge of it because he's not that interested in the topic. it doesn't affect his personal wealth then it doesn't concern him. But it looks good optically so he has the meeting as long as he doesn't have be bored with sitting through it and pretending to be concerned. And of course Ivanka can sex up any meeting for great photo ops no matter what the issue.

She uses phrases like "this administration...." like she is a part of it. I guess she is, in all practicality, but the idea that this young woman with no experience at all in either political administration, nor even a regular working life, can sit in the Presidents chair and represent him while he is away overseas is nuts.

22. Sorry, but........

NO ONE ELECTED WHITE HOUSE BARBIE FOR ANYTHING! Who the hell does this dysfunctional family think they are? Trump's plans were to become a dictator, like Putin, then have a succession of Trump family members installed from that point on.

Well guess what, Donnie? FUCK OFF! Your dictator plan is circling the drain as we speak, and the rest of your family is being pulled down the drain as well. Your level of evil and narcissism creates it's own gravitational pull, and it's taking anyone who's ever had contact with you down the fucking drain. You're a dumbfuckian black hole, sucking everyone and everything in your path into your gravitational vortex.

FUCK THE TRUMPS! You make the name "Bush" look like a canonized family now, after your incredible level of douchebaggery.

Just when you think this white trash family couldn't possibly sink any lower..........
