What Is Ivanka Trump Selling?

Last weekend, while her father President Trump was wandering around the stage looking longingly at the blossoming friendship between Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman and Vladimir Putin, Ivanka Trump was pressing the flesh at this yearís G-20 summit in Argentina.

But itís hard not to notice that the presidentís favorite female has certainly been taken down a peg since last yearís G20, when Ivanka caused a lot of controversy by sitting in her fatherís seat during one of the summit events. She also spoke at a womanís summit which drew groans and boos.

Not so this year, where the First Daughter was largely silent and stuck mostly to smiling and waving, both things sheís extremely good at, as well as socializing with Bin Salman, another social pariah.

The ornamental quality of this yearís performance, especially as contrasted with last yearís, crystalized something Iíve long been wondering about Ivanka. Sheís an adviser to the President who doesnít advise him, a dignitary to the G20 with no dignity, a working woman with no job, a public official who doesnít serve the public. And now that she no longer sells her sweatshop crafted namesake clothing, what is it that the presidentís daughter is selling?

1. What she's selling, BS and propaganda

For her treasonous corrupt criminal father, and herself.

2. The weirdest thing is that there are actually people who think she may one day be President.

I try to keep that thought as far away from my brain as possible.

3. She's selling President Ivanka.

That's what this was all for. A ham-fisted attempt to shoehorn an utterly unqualified person into a role that they feel is their destiny.

Daddy's little girl wanted a lot more than a pony.
