Ivanka Trump: Born to legitimize corruption and make the shoddy look cute

Ivanka Trump: Born to legitimize corruption and make the shoddy look cute

... snip

She has the same magic touch with the multitudes of flesh-and-blood rogues who flock to her for redemption. It's Ivanka who first brought Gen. Michael "Lied to the FBI" Flynn into the administration, according to the New Yorker; she praised him for his "amazing loyalty" and offered him his choice of positions at a transition-team meeting. One person present said, "It was like Princess Ivanka had laid the sword on Flynn's shoulders and said, 'Rise and go forth.'"

The laying on of that princess sword seems to be Ivanka's favorite pastime. In 2006, when she was 25, she toured Moscow with Felix Sater, who in 1998 pleaded guilty to a $40-million stock fraud scheme run by the Russian mafia. She also collaborated with the Soviet-born businessman Tamir Sapir, whose top aide in 2004 pleaded guilty to a racketeering conspiracy with the Gambino crime family.

It's impossible to keep track of all the gangsters Ivanka has palled around with. But what's truly damning are the shady real-estate projects she has made rise and go forth.

In 2006, she oversaw the development of the Trump Ocean Club International Hotel and Tower in Panama City. The project was connected to a Brazilian money launderer later arrested for fraud and forgery as well as a Russian investor who'd previously been jailed in Israel for kidnapping. On Wednesday, a dispute between Trump's company and the building's owner turned violent. The journalist Marcy Wheeler has suggested the fight concerns records that may show Ivanka knew the property was laundering money. Police in riot gear stormed the hotel that Ivanka once hyped as "exemplary of the grandeur in which we like to enter a market."

3. Ivanka Trump likes to hide behind the moniker of "daughter"

and tries to use her vapid talking style, insipid mid-sentence smiles, and coquettish tilt of the head to mask the fact that she is as much a crook as her father. She is a liar, she is corrupt, and she is knee deep in every fraud "Trump, Inc." ever perpetrated on its unwitting victims. She belongs in an orange jumpsuit along with the rest of the Trump Crime Family.

5. Ivanka is Trump's favorite child because she is his carbon copy.

She is just as corrupt and loathsome as he is.

It's amazing to see the number of Russian trolls in the comment section in that article. Working overtime.
