If the Capitol mob had been Black? Most Americans say the police would have been harsher.

Queens Man Impeached’: A Paper Gives Trump the Local Treatment





When Donald Trump was improbably elected president in 2016, his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner,were among the last people on earth one would consider qualified to work in the White House advising the leader of the free world. But being Trumps and Trumps by marriage, the duo obviously saw themselves as eminently equipped for the jobs, thanks to inflated professional titles given to them by their fathers over the years and chart-topping delusions of grandeur.

As Michael Wolff reported in Fire and Fury, though friends warned Javanka of the risks of getting into politics, “balancing risk against reward,” they “decided to accept roles in the West Wing over the advice of almost everyone they knew. It was a joint decision by the couple, and, in some sense, a joint job. Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president. The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.” (Oh, to have been a fly on the wall when the couple had a serious conversation deciding—as though it was actually a possibility—that she would be the one to ascend to the Oval Office. “It’ll be me. I’ll be the president,” we assume the first daughter said in her whisper voice, touching Jared’s face in a gentle way so as to not break it.)

Of course, out here on planet earth, Ivanka was never, ever going to be president, not even if Trump turned out to be only one quarter of the unhinged sociopath the world has been forced to endure the last four years. And now that he’s incited a fascist mob to attack the Capitol and overturn the results of a free and fair election, the first daughter’s chances are about as likely as her father appearing on 60 Minutes this Sunday to tell the nation that he realizes the error of his ways and wishes he could take it all back.

The Trumps, though, have never had a firm grasp on reality, an obviously inherited trait that did notskip a generation and was passed down from father to daughter. While Ivanka appears to understand that the insurrection situation is not ideal for her brand—hence her furious attempts at damage control, including the decision to delete her tweet calling the violent mob “American patriots,” the first daughter still seemingly believes that she can salvage this whole thing and that the unintentionally hilarious plan she struck with Jared is still on track. According to the Daily Mail,Princess Purses had plans to attend Joe Biden’s inauguration on January 20 in an effort to “save her reputation” and her “promising political career,” which she believes is a real thing that exists.WATCH NOW: Lilly Singh Takes A Lie Detector Testnull

The report goes on to claim that Trump told his daughter it would be “an insult that she would even want to engage with the crooks [who] are trying to bring him down,” which checks out, and that he supposedly told her that “her presence at the inauguration will cost her thousands of supporters and would be the worst decision she could ever make.” Ivanka, according to the story, believed that attending the inauguration would come across as “being a good sport and [would] gain [her] future supporters.” According to a Daily Mail source, Ivanka made clear she “has to protect her own political aspirations.”

A White House source denied that the first daughter will attend the inauguration, and while we’re sure she would like people to think the Biden inaugural committee has welcomed her with open arms, it’s not actually clear that she would have been invited, in light of both the armed storming of the Capitol building and the fact that the proceedings are going to be pared down compared to past years. Presumably, the daughter of the guy who sent an army to stop Biden from becoming president would not be on the A, B, or even C-list for such an event.

Still, it’s entirely believable that Ivanka thinks she should be invited, and that she’s going to totally ride this thing out and ultimately emerge unscathed, her prospects of a shot at the White House unharmed despite her father’s supporters literally smearing shit through the halls of the Capitol. Among other things.
