You’re Ivanka Trump. You’ve been busted in an email scandal which blows up the entirety of your father’s phony attacks on his most hated political rival. You’re not sure if your husband or your brother is about to get arrested first. So what do you do on what might be the last Thanksgiving you and your family ever get to spend together? You try to be clever.
Ivanka Trump posted this as a supposed feel-good Thanksgiving message: “After watching their Grandpa pardon “Peas” and “Carrots” at the White House on Tuesday, Joseph and Arabella have sworn off turkey and are insisting on a vegetarian Thanksgiving!” The trouble here is obvious. Ivanka is talking about faux-pardons of turkeys at a time when Donald Trump is probably trying to decide whether to try to pardon Ivanka, Jared Kushner, and Donald Trump Jr. Needless to say, her remarks didn’t go over particularly well.
One respondent said this of the turkeys in question: “I hear they refused the pardon and are now cooperating with Robert Mueller’s investigation.” Another served up this quip: “Did you have them watch those turkeys get pardoned so they knew what to expect when their turkeys of parents are in need of a pardon?” Others made inevitable email jokes.
What’s remarkable here is that, even as her father’s illegitimate regime crashes and burns, her own scandals threaten to explode, and her family is on the verge of being shattered by arrests and potential plea deals against each other, Ivanka Trump is behaving as if these kinds of faux-clever tweets make any sense. Is she that far removed from the imminent destruction of her family? Is she in denial? Or is she simply fiddling while the Trump regime burns?
