Ivanka Trump is finally responding to a damning report that the Farmers to Families Food Box program she helmed when her dad was POTUS was a complete shitshow behind closed doors, and in true Trump fashion, she’s deflecting.
Quick recap: In October, the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis revealed that the $1 billion program, which Ivanka unveiled in May 2020, awarded millions and millions of dollars to totally unqualified contractors for the sole purpose of
feeding the hungry boosting Donald Trump‘s reelection chances and providing Ivanka with opportunities to post photos of herself giving out boxes of food in church parking lots.

Among the questionable contracts the Trump administration awarded was $39 million to a company called CRE8AD8 LLC (pronounced “Create a Date”), which specializes in planning weddings not distributing food to starving people, and $40 million to an avocado grower who wrote “I don’t have any” under the references portion of his application.
On Friday, the former first daughter issued a rare statement on the findings, telling The Daily Mail, “It’s unfortunate, yet hardly surprising to see the media work hand in hand with congressional democrats in a desperate and transparent effort to distract from the staggering incompetence of the current administration.”
Ah, yes. The old create-a-distraction-by-accusing-the-other-side-of-trying-to-create-a-distraction defense. Seriously, couldn’t she think of anything more original?

This is the most we’ve heard from Ivanka in months. Since leaving Washington, D.C. in tears last January, she’s kept a very low profile. She hasn’t given any interviews or made any major appearances, other than showing up to the Louis Vuitton show in Miami earlier this month.
She’s also been virtually radio silent on social media and hasn’t posted anything to Twitter or Instagram since getting her COVID-19 vaccine on May 5, which resulted in a huge uproar from her father’s followers.
Although that could be changing very soon.
Last week, Lindsey Graham let it slip that Ivanka was one of the main conduits between Republican lawmakers and the ex-president during the deadly insurrection on January 6. As a result, people are now calling for her text messages from that day to be released.

In response to Graham’s remarks, Rick Wilson, co-founder of the Lincoln Project, tweeted, “I want to see what Jared and Ivanka were texting to [Mark] Meadows.”

So far, Wilson’s tweet has received nearly 32,000 likes, 4,000 retweets, and hundreds of comments supporting an investigation into Ivanka’s text records.

Instead of reporting on the minutia of Ivanka Trumps’s life, can you please report on your boner for Ivanka Trump? Where did it come from? Why are you so obsessed with her? Do you think you will into heaven if you just complain about Ivanka Trump enough?
You ought to try something to take your mind off of her.
YASSSSS QUEEN!!! You’re so brilliant as you project your boner-ness for Ivanka onto a bunch of gay men. She’s and her girly husband are as corrupt as Donald and need to called out for it.
The way to discover some of the screenames for the same old right wing troll account is to put up an article about Ivanka or Melania.
Typically they will come in with several screenames in a rage demanding that Queerty stop reporting on them.
Your troll game is sad and weak.
We will gladly when you come out of your little closet and admit to being a far right troll who is obsessed with Biden
Please join me in making #SubpoenaNestorGalban and #WhatDoesNestorGalbanKnowAboutMatt Gaetz
Let’s get Congress to take notice and say, “Why didn’t we think of that?” I truly believe very cute Nestor knows a shi*load about the dealings of Matt Gaetz.
Please help make the subpoenas for Nestor a reality.
Poor Ivanka, a grifter is a grifter is a grifter.
Why is Queerty so obsessed with the Trumps? Is Ivanka transgendered or something?
No but I think her hubby is.
why arent you? SHe is from a family of lying grifters who are obsessed with daily press coverage and she is so desperate to regain her standing in society that was revoked when her sick lying and pathetic attempts to insert herself in adult conversations with other nation’s leaders. I guess you arent because you are a right wing troll
It is my earnest prayer that entire family NEVER returns to DC even for some conference. Although they live in FL (I don’t even like that as it is my native state) let them stay here completely out of the spotlight.
Haters gonna hate! Trump living rent free in all the heads of these clowns prancing around:) it’s the libtard parade.
Actually it’s a Trump turd parade for his supporters like you.
BENGAZI!!! HUNTER!! HILLERY’S EMAILS!!
Awe snookums, you feel good and big and potent now you called some people Libtards? There there… just go sit in your sh*tty smelly Trumpian corner with your pointy hat, OK?

You know like the vaccine those idiot flat earthers and morons. and libtard is so childishly dumb it rivals “lets go brandon” just pathetic. Trump said so many horrible vicious shit why would we be bothered by that sophomoric crap

she might think “Out of sight, out of mind”, but her stink remains.

I cannot wait until the day we see that entire family being carted off to jail. They are all a bunch of treasonous crooks.
