Peaceful protesters getting tear-gassed but I’m so glad Ivanka didn’t forget her purse!
What on earth is she carrying in there? Her pride? Her soul? S’mores? pic.twitter.com/sbzHxo4SzY

After driving her own fashion line into the ground, it appears Ivanka Trump has begun dragging other brands down into the sewer with her.
As history will always remember, on Monday, Donald Trump had federal police fire rubber bullets and tear gas at a crowd of peaceful protestors outside of St. John’s Episcopal Church so he could walk over there and have his picture taken holding a bible.
What people didn’t know at first is that Ivanka played a major role in the disastrous publicity stunt.

The New York Times reports that not only was she the one who encouraged her dad to show a sign of force after it was revealed he had spent part of the weekend cowering in a bunker, but she personally transported the bible he used in the photo op from the White House to the church in her $1,540 Max Mara handbag.
Vanity Fair reports:
Understandably, the Italian luxury brand hasn’t sent out any press releases to tout the event. Fashion houses often do that when one of their items makes a prominent public appearance, though they’ve largely slowed such updates during the protests and the coronavirus pandemic. A representative for the label didn’t return a request for comment.
But while the fashion house may not be speaking about the matter, people on Twitter sure have a lot to say. Some are going so far as to call for the brand to be boycotted.

That photo op was just disgusting. Using the Bible — carried in Ivanka’s $1500 Max Mara tote — as a campaign prop? Gassing and beating Americans peacefully protesting, just so the emperor and his entourage can walk over?

@maxmara Ivanka Trump just totally fucked you over by carrying your bag. #ETTD that includes Ivanka

Apparently Ivanka had the Bible in her $1k @maxmara clutch bag. One way to sort her out would be to persuade fashion houses to stop selling to her.

You’d think that Ivanka would have given it to him right side up after she took it from her $1540.00 MaxMara bag.

Will the economy ever be so good that Americans will carry their bibles in a $1,540 Max Mara handbag?

Guessing that “somebody” was carrying a white MaxMara handbag

Did you pay Ivanka to carry your bag to the church photo op?

Not buying @maxmara anytime soon. @maxmara should #bebest and decry such use of their brand.

The last time Max Mara made beltway news was in 2018 when Nancy Pelosi was photographed in one of the brand’s coats while leaving an Oval Office meeting where she sparred with Trump over the impending government shutdown.
At the time, the fashion house was quick to seize the opportunity by posting about it on social media and reissuing the coat.

Max Mara is honored that U.S. House Representative @nancypelosi wore the #MaxMaraFireCoat to her recent historic meeting at the White House. A #MaxMara coat is a year on year companion, designed to last a lifetime. This boule shaped, funnel collar coat represents lasting values and projects both personal strength and glamour. #MaxMaraWomen
We wonder what changed this time around?

How is it that brands fault the devil bought their bag?
Often they send famous people free items.
“Often they send famous people free items.” Okay, maybe, but one tweet says:
“One way to sort her out would be to persuade fashion houses to stop selling to her.” How would anyone persuade fashion houses to “stop selling to her”? Suppose they’d rather not, would that even be legal? How much control does Max Mara have over who buys their stuff? What if Ivanka buys a Tesla, do we then boycott Teslas?
Her fat daddy buys a lot of Big Macs, but McDonald’s doesn’t have any control over that.
Fair or not, if this causes all the major brands to start speaking out against Ivanka Trump, fine with me.
“What on earth is she carrying in there? Her pride? Her soul? S’mores?”
did they give the bag to her? If she bought it, they really can’t be held responsible for her using it…they should release a statement to that effect if that’s the case….if they gave her a comp bag for PR, Pile on!
More proof that money does not buy class, dignity or grace. That bucktoothed bitch looks like an idiot no matter what she wears.
Not only is this company not responsible for what purchasers of their products do, but really, boycott a company that sells $1,500 purses? Whatever. dude…
They are now claiming that it is Ivanka’s knockoff of their handbag.

Ok. Ok. I’m sure many of you have long concluded I’m whats referred to as a big girl more suited to Macy’s end of the month sales but isn’t there something about that pic that makes her look a bit gaudy or is it my working class style of dress thats problem. Black high heel shoes, black pants with matching black jacket but a big white purse that borders on oversize?
Between me and ya’ll I think she wore that black mask out of shame than out of fear of catching anything. And just to let you guys know, the scent of that tear gas lingered in the air as knucklehead and his bobble headed daughter walked across the street. What good what it do to ask just how many times they’ve even been inside that church since they moved in across the street? Or better yet have they’ve ever been inside that church as a family?
Good Lord…. I’m so far down in society; I had no idea who or what Max Mara is. And I don’t care. Did she buy that bag because it is perfect bible toting size? Shame, Ivanka.
I thinks it’s time we question peoples motivation for working in government positions that can afford $1500.00 purses and $2,990.00 coats to wear to work. Gotta question where their priorities are when it comes to America when the number of people living in poverty is 38.1 million people as of 2019. It begs the question on how in touch they are with the everyday lives of average people in the United States. The perks they receive begs the question about their priorities since they govern themselves.They get s base annual salary of $174,000, free airport parking, free, on-site gym for House members, weaker insider trading restrictions(less disclosure), up to 239 days off, health-care subsidies under Obamacare, better retirement plan, members of Congress fly free, better death benefits, $1.2 million to $3.3 million allowance. Sure they work hard but it’s no wonder why they are so protective of their place in congress. If the average American had 239 days a year off maybe we could write books and give speeches letting members of congress know what it’s like living in an America they are governing. THINGS THAT MAKE ME SAY HMMMMMMMMM. Can we say government reform only after voting reform.

Macy’s in Herald Square has a Burberry section in it and surely they allow people to charge up to $5k or better on their credit cards. I also remember a Coach section too. A $2999 fur jacket is on the low end but you would be surprised how many people do charge it on their Macys credit cards not caring about the twenty-five percent annual interest rate. I almost cheered when I heard they too (Macys at Herald Square) got hit during the riots. No matter how hard they try to deny it Macy’s is the new JCPenny working mans store and they know it. JCPenny made a big mistake when it didn’t follow Macys lead in online retail. Its too late now.
If it weren’t for that bag, the Bible would have been right side up……
if she bought it, it’s not their fault. think before reacting.
Who really gives a rats ass? This reminds me of young twit haley baldwin wearing $1700.00 sneakers in public. How tasteless when so many are one paycheck away from homelessness. BTW: time long overdue for term limits to all politicians. Just look at congress now to see what I mean.

@winemaker…”BTW: time long overdue for term limits to all politicians. Just look at congress now to see what I mean.”
I seriously doubt that it was an intentional oversight by you in your comment but another very sad but true fact is how we MUST now include all nine members of the supreme court as lifetime APPOINTED politicians. Every now and then Justice Roberts breaks with the pack of so called conservatives and votes liberal but overall he too cashes in just like the rest of them. Jimmy Carter asked Thurgood Marshall to resign and even promised that he would appoint another black to replace him. Marshall refused. Obama proposed the same thing (more or less) to Ruth Ginsberg and she to had the same response. When I see her on tv the same thing goes thru my mind with her as it did with Marshall, what is it that makes these people think they are going to live forever and why is it they can’t see what the future holds if they remain. In the case of Thurgood Marshall it brought us Clarence Thomas. I really do shudder when I think what is going to happen when the inevitable happens to Ginsburg and what she gets replaced with. All of you reading this are free to go on and on about what she has accomplished (and her accomplishments ARE impressive) but the woman isn’t going to last forever and its the aftermath is what you should be concerned with.
Really this is one of the most stupid things I’ve seen in a while. Anyway how can you boycott something you would never buy anyway?
I couldn’t tell if it was a Bible, it was upside down!
@winemaker I totally agree with Sister BB. I strongly believe in term limits for all government positions. ALL!! This is why were in the mess that were in, the same returning politicians can’t get along with whoever’s in power. Bills don’t get passed. Nothing gets done and the Taxpayers suffer and they continuously want more money from us. We need new blood, fresh ideas. We the voters can only make that change, vote the oldies out, lets get the younger ones in. Time for change.
Come on everbody. We are hard working people That probably can’t afford a $1500 bag, but I would never criticize anyone that could just because of who they are. You can’t tell me that when you made a little more or extra money that you didn’t go into a quality store that you usually don’t shop at and bought yourself a little nicer item, I know I did. There are people that worked hard to get where they are, Oprah, Jeff Bezos, Tyler Perry, to name a few. What I don’t see is anybody criticizing celebrities walking around with a $10,000 Birkin.
This is directed at all you haters! Get over your smarmy selves!

I don’t really see how it’s the designer’s fault unless they have been sending her free gifts and she chose to use them. Suggesting that they “stop selling to her” makes absolutely no sense. She is probably shopping on line most of the time or an assistant is shopping for her. It’s also a bit difficult to tell someone “we are not allowed to sell to you” unless of course you’re gay then by all means have at it! Yes, fashion houses ALL have her true colors now and should be sure to never use any of those colors in next seasons line. She is as much of a pig virus as her father and should be forced to wear Jiggly Caliente’s Post Apocalyptic Couture!
