The race is on to rehab Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner’s public image as the two prepare to leave the White House. Sources say the two are desperate to be accepted back into society once Donald Trump has left office.
The two are hoping that daddy takes all the blame for the multitude of sins the administration committed and are trying to tout the positive accomplishments to prove they didn’t do everything wrong. While the two were ensconced in the White House, the country was ravaged by a pandemic, hate crimes skyrocketed, and they increased their wealth considerably.

The news you care about, reported on by the people who care about you:
Ivanka has started tweeting about the administration’s positive accomplishments recently, but in true fashion, she has to stretch things to make the facts fit. Yesterday she tweeted that greenhouse gasses had dropped 9.2%. She neglected to include that 8% of that was due to the coronavirus shutdowns.
FACT: Greenhouse gases generated by the U.S. will slide 9.2% this year, tumbling to the lowest level in at least three decades. @EPA

She’s also started decrying current investigations into financial misdeeds as “harassment” and “ruthless” to paint the two as victims of a political plot instead likely criminals.
This is harassment pure and simple. This ‘inquiry’ by NYC democrats is 100% motivated by politics, publicity and rage. They know very well that there’s nothing here and that there was no tax benefit whatsoever. These politicians are simply ruthless.https://t.co/4dQoDzQlRX

“In an odd way, they will even have a harder time than Trump himself,” Donny Deutsch, a brand management professional, told the New York Times. “He’s despicable but larger than life.”
“Those two are the hapless minions who went along.”
The couple are reportedly fleeing Washington D.C., where they have a home in one of the most upscale neighborhoods but have been shunned socially, and New York City isn’t looking too welcoming either.
The two have started renovating their luxury “cottage” on the grounds of the Trump National Golf Club, adding an expanded master bedroom, bath and dressing room, two new bedrooms, a study and a ground floor veranda. The plans also include the addition of five more 5,000 square feet “cottages” to the property, a recreation complex with spa treatments, a “yoga complex,” helipad, and a general store.
“Washington tends to be more tolerant of fellow swamp creatures, who are continually in and out of favor,” author Christopher Buckley added. “That does not extend to Manhattan, where ‘in’ and ‘out’ lists are sacred tablets.”
“There might be more Grubhub than La Grenouille in their dining future.”
