Ivanka and Jared caught vacationing after shutdown cancels time off for federal employees

Presidential advisers Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump have faced criticism for taking a beach vacation during the shutdown of the federal government, reports Yahoo News.

Although their typically active social media accounts have been uncharacteristically quiet about their holiday plans, the president’s daughter and her husband are sunning themselves at Mar-a-Lago.

Federal employees who are not subject to furlough are required to work during a government shutdown. There is a “no exceptions” rule which required non-furloughed federal employees to cancel their vacations and show up to work on Wednesday.

“Employees who aren’t furloughed during a shutdown can’t take any time off for vacation, illness or religious obligations, according to the government’s Office of Personnel Management rules,” Bloomberg reported. “Effectively, this means that employees who were planning to take time off between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays have to cancel their plans.”

However, as Yahoo noted, the president’s daughter and her husband, who are employed as advisers to him, appear to have been exempted.

“While countless people are taking time off from work for the holiday, the couple are facing scrutiny because their government jobs should require them to be working back in D.C.,” writes Yahoo. “Kushner in particular was reportedly involved in negotiations to resolve the shutdown over funding for Trump’s proposed border wall.”

Instead, Ivanka was spotted out for a jog with Secret Service protection. Jared was spotted walking around in the Florida sun in flip-flops.

1. Why should the princess have to suffer?

After all, neither of them is drawing a paycheck (*wink wink*) so they can get around that "no nepotism" law.

3. They wouldn't have this problem if they were Democrats. The entire country and both parties would

NOT allow them to work in the administration because you cant do that when you are family but that rule doesnt apply to this bunch.

I guess.

No rules apply to them, and the reason is simple: rump and kushners are extreme racists and 35% of this country are also extreme racists. period

4. Are they furloughed?

I thought much of the office of the president was funded separately from the departments covered by the appropriations bills that haven't been passed.
