Ivanka Trump's White House job is unethical and dangerous

    Clear act of depravity Ivanka Trump WH advisor   - How many times 'mistakes' pushing her clothes brand and now her book?

    State Department  Office of Global Women’s Issues retweeted a post by White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump in which she touts her new book.

    The retweet does not break any laws, ethics experts say, but it could violate federal rules against using public office to promote commercial products or using government resources, like Twitter accounts, for unauthorized purposes.

    Shortly after the retweet was noticed by journalists, the department took it down.


    It’s not the first time Ivanka has used her father’s political ascent to boost sales at her own brands. Zero  ethics code.  Trump is not permitted to bring his children on in official roles in the cabinet or a federal agency under a nepotism law  but did anyway and is getting away with it in  plain sight.

    The code of federal regulation specifically prohibits employees from “the endorsement of any product, service or enterprise, or for the private gain of friends, relatives, or persons with whom the employee is affiliated in a nongovernmental capacity.”

    These rules don’t apply to Donald Trump himself. The president and vice president are exempt. - https://www.fastcompany.com/3065699/is-it-legal-for-ivanka-donald-trump-to-use-the-presidency-to-market-their-prod

    Every week seems to bring a new low, to the point that it's now possible to believe the bottom is so much farther than we could even imagine. It creates such a deep anger in me. And a hopelessness. Because I seek to understand the people who support this depraved human, and pretty much the only thing I understand about them is that they are devoutly committed to supporting him, to the point that they have no problem excusing depravity. And that is not something I'm yet capable of really understanding. - http://www.renewyear.com/answer/2016/4?full_list=true


    “I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her,” Trump once said of Ivanka on “The View.” Prior to that, he bragged to Howard Stern about Ivanka’s body. More recently, he told GQ:

    “She’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father…”

    And, of course, he once said on a talk show that what he and Ivanka have most in common is “sex.”

      Let me make sure I understand this.  An unnamed (and presumably unknown) employee at the State Department  Office of Global Women’s Issues posted a tweet that mentions Ivanka has a book out.  It doesn't try and sell it, doesn't advertise it, it doesn't even tell us where to buy it - it just mentions it.

      And this is a "Clear act of depravity Ivanka Trump"  Aren't you dredging the bottom of the barrel again?  Give it up man!  These people are not demons from Hell!

        No, they aren't demons from Hell, but they are highly unethical and, in Donald's case, mentally unstable.

        The demons from Hell are the voters who defend his immoral behavior simply because they voted for him. They pray for the day when we have a one-party political system and an end to this stupid experiment called democracy.

    What’s more striking is that the book fails even to get its own story straight. ... The book ultimately doesn’t try very hard to obscure the fact that the Women Who Work initiative was created, as the Times recently reported, as a way to make Ivanka products more marketable. The book is full of random advertisements for Trump companies. - http://www.newyorker.com/books/page-tur … lly-no-one

    Ivanka's book Women Who Work, is a tagline & a promotional hashtag for the Ivanka Trump brand.

    Donnie has had 33 visits to Trump-branded properties since his inauguration. Donnie also said that "greed is a good thing."

    Donnies's grandfather was a pimp and tax evader; his father a member of the KKK. Donnie speaks the language of sexual assault.  He has a pattern of behavior that is consistent with sexual predators. Trumpeteers didn't balk when he made a reference to dating his own daughter, Ivanka.

    Donnie's school, the NYMA was governed with physical and psychological brutality. At home he saw how his father manipulated politicians with donations and was able to avoid military service because of a bone spur - which he can't remember which foot it was on - yet still was able to play sports.

    Katie Johnson accuses Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein of having forced her to "engage in various perverted and depraved sex acts" and threatening to harm her and her family  in 1994, when she was 13.

    Religious conservatives who embrace Donnie is the height of hypocrisy.  Pat Robertson would blast Mr. Clinton as a “debauched, debased, and defamed” politician who turned the Oval Office into a “playpen for the sexual freedom of . . . the 1960s.” Pat Robertson in February 2017 broadcasted that people who oppose President Trump are 'revolting against what God’s plan is for America.'

    But the deafening silence of religious conservative on Donnie just shows that was all political kabuki against the Mr. Clinton and now religious conservatives have no credible morality whatsoever.

    Hey Donnie:
    Stop nominating misfits!

    Maybe you can fill  positions. Your know - one of your basic jobs - seems you can't handle that small bit without screwing it up ...

    The Trump administration’s second Army secretary nominee withdrew from consideration Friday amid mounting opposition to past comments he made about Islam, evolution and gender issues. He was selected after President Trump’s first Army secretary nominee, withdrew from consideration in February.

    A nominee for Navy secretary, Philip M. Bilden, also withdrew from consideration in February, facing simliar difficulties. No replacement has been named. 

    It's Freaking May two months have gone by and no replacement for Bilden has been nominated yet? A Confederacy of Dunces!
