I probably missed it, but did anyone notice where in the US the jewelry was going to be made? I know several people that could use a good paying job with benefits.

Hey, it turns out these rubes that are onboard with team Trump cant afford that high end shiat. And the people that can afford it are the dirty libs that treat her brand like its radioactive.

Solution? Pivot!

This just makes good business sense. Trump's sons are probably working on a plan to take over the Super 8 motel chain and reskin it in Trump. Gotta maximize the cash extraction while you're in office.

Nyah, a year's profit off the rubes staying at Motel 8 won't cover the profit from selling one double-mark-up luxury apartment to the Shah of Westphalia who happens to be seeking to purchase F-35 jets to use like clay pigeons at his hunting lodge in the Carpathian Mountains, overlooking the gulag...I mean political prisoner spa.

I don't get this whole Trump brand deal.

If I see someone with a Trump tie on I do NOT think "Hey, there's a man with impeccable taste.

I think "Wow, what a pathetic loser".

The Trump brand to me means "noveau riche asswipe with no taste" or "worshipper of Mammon".

Trump is a synonym for gauche and crass and classless ass.,

Trump is the ultimate justification for the global stereotype of the "Ugly American"

Which is to say "loud, brash assholes who think they know it all but who are actually pig ignorant of almost everything that happens outside their borders and much of what happens inside".

I guess my question here is who the fark is buying into the Trump and for the love of all that's good and shiny WHY?

And has been that way since the 80's.  That's the worst part.  It's not like this is somehow new or unknown.

When your brand is about ripping off racist rubes you need to set your price points appropriately
 
2017-03-14 01:46:48 PM  
Aiming for the 'earrings sold on a spin rack' crowd, are we?

Scion is the Trump brand mid-range hotels. They started the move before the election.

Unlike Trump Hotels, a collection of 14 luxury properties worldwide that launched in 2007 with nightly rates beginning at $700, Scion, which means "descendant of a notable family," according to the news release, will have rooms beginning at $200 or $300 a night, said Eric Danziger, the chief executive of Trump Hotels.

Pretty much what I came to say.

Read "we've seen the post-election demographics, and it's far easier to fleece 10 sheep than 1 wolf."

I'd touch her stuff with a 10-inch pole, though.

If talking about Donald I agree 100% but I can see how young women could want to go with the Ivanka look, she appears to have a decent sense of style and brains to boot. her only true weak area is being related to her Dad and well hard to blame a daughter for sticking by her Father.  I won't judge her on that.

Not surprised by this.

The jewellery line was successfully sued for not paying for over $3 million so many of the jewelers won't provide pieces for it now over concern it going to avoid paying them too. Add to that the number of times they been busted for failure to pay taxes on what jewellery they have sold and other trouble it gotten into, the business is seen as nothing but trouble.

Once more with a Trump, don't give them anything unless you get paid in advance, because they are going to screw you over sooner or later.

I don't know why Ivanka earns so much benefit of the doubt. There is plenty of evidence that she is the same as the rest.

AKA, super cheap plastic jewelry for trashy bimbos.

This is hilarious.  Read that last line real fast in the whisper disclaimer voice and it is comedy gold.  Cheers to you Uzzah.

I really wish the Business tab focused on matters related to business and the economy, and wasn't just Politics-lite tab dumping ground for farkers that want to give their little willy a hate hard-on.

Because blonde hair and big boobs tend to blind some people to the fact that she is descended from an insufferable, evil sh*t-heel.

See McCain, Meghan for more info.

I know a guy in that business in LA. Course, he's Armenian on a green card. Trump would probably want to deport him.

No but do judge her on posing as a feminist and then not criticizing daddy for grabbing women by the pussy
