“Confederate artifacts are undeniably a representation of hate, racism and of oppression. They are an insult to the many people who visit our Capitol today in the state of Texas. The argument that these monuments preserve history somehow or symbolize America’s past is merely to reshape and rewrite the intent of the Civil War.”
“I can’t believe I’m going to say anything good about her. You all know I’m no fan of Nepotism Barbie. But here I go. Take a deep breath…Yesterday, I commend Ivanka Trump for having used her platform to show herself getting the vaccine and promote vaccination, when she says, I hope you get the shot too. And if you see the responses from Trump-supporting Republicans against what used to be their favorite daughter, you can see how political it has become.”
Ivanka Trump getting a COVID-19 vaccine. The irony of this can’t be emphasized enough; considering her father demonstrated complete ineptness in dealing with the pandemic. If I never again hear about the Trump family, it won’t be too soon.
Perhaps the only thing more exciting than political drama is family drama. And blended families can provide some of the best (or worst) emotional drama. That became subtly apparent this week when First Daughter Ivanka Trump appeared at the Republican National Convention to introduce her father, the President. She and First Lady Melania Trump exchanged awkward smiles before the former took to the microphone. Afterwards, there came this glare from Melania as Ivanka spoke.
