Washington's "elite" might consider them irrelevant. But Donald Trump doesn't. He's not going to turn against his family. Sadly that's because they have the name "Trump," and he's not going to risk damaging the brand.

rein in the President's most bullish instincts

They misspelled bullshiat.

As opposed to Two Scoops, who has no idea that he is irrelevant and still thinks he is special.

Some insiders believe Donald Trump's daughter and son-in-law - currently the most favoured members of his chaotic administration - could be out within a year.


Of course they'll be out within a year.  Why would President Hatch keep them around?

You know, I'm not gonna say anyone in that White House is irrelevant. Not while Agent Orange is in charge. One of them may save all of our lives.

He may not. They will, just to keep themselves out of jail.

trump wasn't welcomed by the new york elite why should the DC elite be any different? right now DC neither fears nor respects him. the kids might as well go home.

or jared could go to the middle east again where a chorus of "oh god not you again" will greet him.

Trump cares about "family" the same way Cersi Lannister does...in other words only when he can invoke it to his advantage.  Trump already hung Don Jr out to dry and made him read that false statement Trump personally dictated, even knowing it wasn;t true and pretty damn sure they NYTimes already had Jr.'s emails

the fact that mannequin let his father-in-law pile middle-east peace, the opioid epidemic and folding fitted sheets on his plate without push-back tells me plenty about his competency.

"I haven't had anything to do with them since they moved," a former friend told the magazine.
"And it is because the day that man [Mr Trump] gave an inaugural speech, what am I going to say? 'What the f*** is wrong with you?'"


Hah, wow! That was an honest LOL.
Still chuckling...

In a way J-Kush (his rapper name) is the fall guy for when none of those things are even remotely solved or even adequately tackled.  I think Kush is oblivious enough to think he could actually handle any one of those debacles even all of them at once.

Exactly. It probably wouldn't take more than another month or two.

We should probably just let Jared wrap that shiat up real quick.

It's not a matter of DC elites, but DC values. Jared and Ivanka come from Manhattan, where success is predicated on how much money you have. What people who don't live and work here don't get is that DC isn't impressed by wealth. The currencies here are information and professional connections, and Javanka have neither. They've never worked on the Hill, they have never worked in a federal office and neither one is all that bright. To the DC professional class, Jared and Ivanka come off as lazy, entitled, clueless drones who expect deference just because they're related to the president. That's not how DC works. The DC area is a den of workaholics who brag about how much time they spend at the office, and most people here have at least a master's degree. We are a city of nerds. and they just don't fit in.

They were never welcome here. This town is full of people who have spent their lives in public service, who study issues and try and find solutions - on both sides of the aisle.  There was never anything but disgust for this calvacade of trash.

100% true. Ivanka is the heir apparent to the "family" business and Trump put her there for the exposure. She now gets to travel in circles and build a network that lays the groundwork for the future of that brand. That is, if her dad doesn't burn it to the ground. As for Jared, I still don't know why the fark he's there. He has nothing to offer. Maybe it's because he's part of the package now.

I assume (and admit hope) that by the time this is over, the Trump 'brand' will be so toxic she will inherit only some properties and will have to lay low the rest of her life.

I'm starting to think that his whole master plan of draining the swamp involved hiring the worst possible people, then firing them.

I mean, technically he'd be right.

If she's lucky they'll be left with Mediteranean and Baltic Avenues and no hotels.  And she'll have to share those with her brothers and Tiffany.
