Ivanka Trump Says She’s Out of Politics After Grifting Millions Last Time, Will Not Return to the Scene of the Crime


Ivanka Trump is outta here.

The avaricious daughter of the former president says she’s not going back to Washington and doing what she did last time — grift millions while operating as his faux first lady.

Ivanka, who enabled her father’s villainy, actually said in a statement last night: “While I will always love and support my father, going forward I will do so outside the political arena.”

Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner made millions personally during their four year run at the White House. They moved from New York to Washington. They couldn’t return to New York because they’re social pariahs, so they emigrated to Florida — the equivalent of when the Nazis ran to South America. The couple also evidently have children whom Ivanka has suddenly remembered.

“This time around, I am choosing to prioritize my young children and the private life we are creating as a family,” she said. “I do not plan to be involved in politics.”

The timing of the posting to Instagram was sweet, too — while her father was giving an inane speech full of lies and fictions as he announced his intended run for the 2024 presidential election. Ouch! She couldn’t have waited a few days? Ivana and Jared, whose book is now number 3,495 on amazon, were absent from Trump’s speech, as was Donald Trump Jr., whose own social media posts have become hilarious memes among the Medellin cartel.

During her run at the White House, Ivanka secured all kinds of patents and trademarks from China and the Philippines including sunglasses, handbags, shoes and jewelry, as well as beauty services, voting machines, and coffins (of all things).

As for the grift: Government watchdog Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) ran the numbers. They say that while working in the White House, the former first daughter and son-in-law reported between $172 million and an a stunning $640 million. So they’re done. The best cat burglars know not to return to the scene of the crime.
