SNL has a devastating takedown of Ivanka Trump entitled “Complicit” — and they manage a hard shot at Jared Kushner too. Is it fair? Heretofore, the offspring of presidents have been mostly exempt from hostile press.
I think it’s fair. The entire Trump entourage is consciously and intentionally milking the presidency for all it’s worth, with the express intent of enhancing the family fortune. I think it makes them all fair game, with the possible exception of the ten year old who lives in New York in the gilded tower with his mother. The kid isn’t seeing much of his father these days — when Trump leaves the White House on the weekends, it’s to play golf, not to visit with his son. I say the kid is off limits until he’s 18, at which point I fully expect him to slide right into to the family mode of monetizing his name and connections. Wouldn’t you love to ask any member of Trump next gen if they’ve ever heard of something called “public service”?
