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.

Ivanka and Jared Worth $741 Million

$741 million

“Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, President Trump’s daughter and son-in-law, will remain the beneficiaries of a sprawling real estate and investment business still worth as much as $741 million, despite their new government responsibilities, according to ethics filings released by the White House Friday night,” the New York Times reports.

A Conway Getaway

The backlash to her Ivanka ad must have astonished her,
And now the Ethics Office says Trump should admonish her.
This Kellyanne Conway antic
Goes far beyond ethics,
But don’t hold your breath waiting for Trump to punish her.

Nordstrom: Ivanka Sales in the Tank-a

32%

“Sales of Ivanka Trump’s fashion line tumbled 32% at Nordstrom last fiscal year, with the declines deepening in the run-up to the U.S. presidential election,” according to internal Nordstrom data reviewed by the Wall Street Journal. “Amid calls to boycott the brand, Ivanka Trump footwear and apparel sales fell more than 70% in the second, third and fourth weeks of October compared with a year ago, the Nordstrom data show. The declines have moderated somewhat since then, averaging 26% year-over-year in January.”

Cabinet of Expendables

Donald Trump doesn’t really have advisers,
Deeming himself better, sharper and wiser.
Except for Jared and Ivanka,
Who meld into JAVANKA
Trump’s only trusted and true SUPER ADVISER.

Ivanka Trump Gives Full-Throated Defense of Father’s Maternity Plan — NOT!

Cosmopolitian: OK, I just wanted to make sure I understood. In 2004, Donald Trump said that pregnancy is an inconvenient thing for a business. It’s surprising to see this policy from him today. Can you talk a little bit about those comments, and perhaps what has changed?

Ivanka Trump: So I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions, and I think my father has put forth a very comprehensive and really revolutionary plan to deal with a lot of issues. So I don’t know how useful it is to spend too much time with you on this if you’re going to make a comment like that.
