It’s the Damage Control Show with Princess Complicity again, this time with Axios, which comprises the dregs of the old Politico group (dregs of the dregs!) serving as the media vehicle of choice:

Ivanka Trump shares that it was “a low point” for her personally when her loathsome father ordered migrant children to be snatched away from their parents at the border. She also astutely observes that immigration is “complex,” praises her own immigrant mother’s choice to migrate legally since “we’re a country of laws” and warns against “incentivizing” undocumented immigrants to come to America.
How…feckless. The truth is, desperate families arrive at our border because they’re fleeing unimaginable horrors at home — conditions that the U.S. very often had a hand in creating. There are serious conversations we should have about what can and should be done about that. But a brainless dilettante suggesting that people from impoverished and violence-plagued Central American countries follow in her mother’s footsteps? By what, finding a rich Austrian to fake-marry to get to the continent of North America, then coming to New York on a model visa to bag a rich American? That’s not particularly helpful.
As much as I hate Donald J. Trump — and the depths of my loathing for that contemptible wretch make the Marianas Trench look like a shallow ditch — it’s quite possible Ivanka is an even worse human being. Trump père is a loud-mouthed asshole who doesn’t give a shit about anyone on earth other than himself, but at least he doesn’t pretend otherwise.
PS: In that same interview, Ivanka also shared that she doesn’t believe the press is “the enemy of the people.” Well, that’s a relief. Not. Her vile toad of a father will repeat the same Stalinist mantra before the next crowd of gibbering loons he addresses in the next redneck shithole he visits. Ivanka might as well be a potted cactus.
