Ready for another President Trump? Journalist Michael Wolff’s new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” hasn’t even been released yet and it’s already rippling through the political consciousness. A preview was released Wednesday. Liberal media pundits are salivating over the excerpts like dogs.
Most of the attention so far has focused on Steve Bannon’s cranky words about President Trump, but a few other nuggets deserve to be noticed as well. Like the story that Ivanka Trump is gunning for her father’s job. She’s already managed to convince Jared Kushner that she’d be a better fit at the White House than he would.
“Between themselves, the two had made an earnest deal: If sometime in the future the opportunity arose, she’d be the one to run for president,” Wolff writes.
“The first woman president, Ivanka entertained, would not be Hillary Clinton; it would be Ivanka Trump.”
Ivanka’s extremely ambitious. She seems to be the most like Trump of all his children.
Bannon reportedly laughed when he heard about Ivanka and Kushner’s plans.
“They didn’t say that?… Stop. Oh, come on. They didn’t actually say that? Please don’t tell me that. Oh my God,” he said derisively.
The Bush’s and the Clinton’s both just got a taste of Americans’ dislike for dynasties. Ivanka’s popular, but voters may revolt against the idea of back to back President Trump’s.
“I think this is the dynastic fantasy that the Trumps all enjoy right now. They forget we don’t do titles of nobility in this country, and that’s a little constitutional problem for them,” Republican strategist Rick Wilson snarked on CNN.
“And the idea that you are going to have a sort of trump empire that stretches over time like the bushes or the Kennedy’s or Roosevelts I think is riisable in every way, and I think Ivanka is much more likely to be driving a Volvo out to Danbury to visit her husband in a correctional facility than she is to be President Of The United States at some point.”
