Quote of the Day
"I try to stay out of politics"
-- Ivanka Trump, Special Adviser to the President
Taking the job of Special Adviser to the President would seem to be quite an incredibly strange way to meet that goal.
That said, I must admit that having Ivanka Trump out of politics is nonetheless a very worthwhile goal and one I applaud her on having and do dearly hope she is able to achieve.
By the way, in the same interview on Fox & Friends, Ms. Trump said that she's not "a political savant." Interestingly, as it happens, when one is Special Adviser to President of the United States, "political savant" is actually one of the main job requirements.
Actually, it was an impressive interview all around, making this more a "Quotes of the Day." Because the First Daughter (or one of them) also said that she's “more interested in being for something than against something.” A certainly good-natured view on life, though a questionable perspective when you're in the position of advising the President of the United States. At least we can thank goodness she wasn't Special Adviser to the President during WWII when we were fighting the Germans and Hitler. Then again, I'm wondering if she holds the same interest when it comes to, let's say, Isis? Or ObamaCare? Or Obama? Or just when it's convenient for her feel-good, but tender heart? And liberals are the ones who are supposed to be the delicate snowflakes.
She's on a roll...
Of course, thanks to the interview she did make clear that she's not a historical savant either or just not basically attentive either by not remembering the famous advice from the founder of her political party, Abraham Lincoln -- "Better to be thought a fool and remain silent, than speak and remove all doubt."
