Lara Trump appeared to be hammering the final nail in irony’s coffin as she called for meritocracy when it comes to filling White House positions.
The comments came during a Saturday appearance on Fox News, as Trump blasted Vice President Kamala Harris as an “embarrassment.”
“She was not chosen based on merit,” she said of the vice president.
“She was chosen based on virtue signaling and pandering to get votes from women and minorities. And what a bad way to ever choose someone for any position. It should always be based on merit, it should only be based on merit,” she argued.

Harris, of course, was a United States senator, California attorney general, and San Francisco district attorney prior to becoming vice president. Meanwhile, Trump’s sister-in-law Ivanka Trump and brother-in-law Jered Trump were each hired by her father-in-law despite having absolutely no experience in government.
The distinction was not lost on anyone:
This is about 50/50 stupid, and ignorant.
It was at least worth a chuckle.

Put aside this asinine attack, this lady is only being asked to comment on Fox News bc of the family she married into and her willingness to go all in on whatever the crazy father in-law wants. She has no skills except crazy.

She seriously has no idea what conscious awareness is. People like her are the reason we’re going backwards in national intelligence instead of leading. The irony is strong.

Anyone not entirely devoid of intelligence and decency would be ashamed by this blatant hypocrisy.

Honest question. Did anyone under Trump get a job based on merit? Cause I can’t think of a one

Lara worked on the board of a company through which the trump political operation spent more than $700M.
The campaign paid her $180,000 a year through Parscale’s private company. Jr’s girlfriend got the same financial perk.
The youngest family member was the only not grifting.
