Ivanka Trump Gets China Trademark Approval for Voting Booths

Reuters reported today that China has issued 16 trademarks for President Trump’s daughter Ivanka in the past two months — including one for voting machines!

The group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington made the findings about the new China trademarks in a Monday statement, and said it was the largest number of new Chinese trademarks her company has received in a single month since her father took office.

The latest China trademarks cover things like shoes and jewelry, but also more offbeat items like voting machines and nursing homes, according to a search of records on the Chinese State Administration for Industry and Commerce’s Trademark office.

The trademarks were applied for in 2016.

Which got me thinking, what would an ad campaign for a Trump-branded voting booth look like, which inspired me to write a little advertising copy:

Voiceover: Deep female voice with indistinct Eastern European accent

Welcome to the IvankaBooth!

Snuggle into your own private political space where it’s just you and the last dog whistle or overt racist remark echoing in your head.

Settle into your plush, golden surroundings and focus on which vote suppressor or media attacker you’re casting your ballot for in the intimate confines of your IvankaBooth, where it’s just you and God and your uneducated, uninformed, misinformed and misogynistic beliefs in the pursuit of your inalienable right to vote for the demagogue of your choice.

IvankaBooth — it’s where YOU make history happen!

Racism Versus Accuracy

When she published her racist tweet about Valerie Jarrett,
Justice was swift for Roseanne, and she deserved it.
But when Samantha Bee
Called Ivanka a “feckless c___,”
There should be no fallout — what SHE said was accurate.

Quincy Jones Dated Ivanka!

“It’s Trump and uneducated rednecks. Trump is just telling them what they want to hear. I used to hang out with him. He’s a crazy motherf**ker. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.”

— Quincy Jones, in an interview with Vulture, on what has stirred up racism in the United States.

Is She Really an Adviser If Trump Won’t Take Her Advice?

“It was Groundhog Day, dystopia edition, yesterday morning when the president banned all transgender servicepeople from the U.S. military, unfurling yet another reversal of an historic Obama-era policy. It was another sweeping and instantly-controversial ban, and, as it’s being widely noted today, another big, fat failure for Ivanka Trump.”

The Hug That Wasn’t? Ivanka Turns to Stone Under Threat of Rubio’s Affection

hilu89e43

There’s a caption contest on Twitter for this photo of an eager Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) hugging Ivanka Trump without actually touching any of Ivanka’s parts. The contest was started by “AltEPA,” whose Twitter handle is @ActualEPAFacts, and who is worthy of your “following” consideration.

The shot makes you wonder just how tall “Little Marco,” as Ivanka’s dad calls him, is. A search came up with this article detailing the heights of the 2016 presidential candidates, along with heights of the past presidents. It offers this caveat at the beginning:

For the record, Rubio is listed at 5’10” in our chart but we have heard from well informed Florida sources that he is more like 5’8″.

Judging by the photo, we’re going to say those Florida sources are onto something. Ivanka, from what we could find, is 5’11” in her stocking feet, and Little Marco’s eyes are about level with her mouth.

Got a caption of your own for this shot? Leave it in the comments section. FYI, “Daddy does it too” was already used on the Twitter feed.

Workers Who Make Ivanka’s Line of Clothes Receive $1 Per Hour

$1/hour

“Workers at a factory in China used by the company that makes clothing for Ivanka Trump’s fashion line and other brands worked nearly 60 hours a week to earn wages of little more than $62 a week,” the Washington Post reports. “The factory’s 80 workers knit clothes for the contractor, G-III Apparel Group, which has held the exclusive license to make the Ivanka Trump brand’s $158 dresses, $79 blouses and other clothes since 2012.”

Done In In Berlin

As Trump’s special advisor, Ivanka should show some aptitude,
But at a women’s conference in Berlin she ran out of latitude.
When she characterized her father
As a woman “empowerer,”
The German crowd just hissed and booed.

New Name, Still Lame

Who is this designer, Adrienne Vittadini Studio?
Does anyone who’s in the know even know?
If you filled your shopping cart
In the aisles of Stein Mart,
You’d know it’s the rebranded brand of Ivanka Trump’s clothes.
