The Entire Trump Family Appears To Be Grifters, Now Ivanka Being Sued For Design Theft

Tell me if you have heard this headline in recent days. Someone creates something, shares it with the world, then someone with a Trump last name uses it without providing credit to the original creator, then the world finds out. Only this time, the thief is getting sued.

Here is what the case is about. Ivanka has a shoe line which actually has fairly nice shoes at a decent, mid range price. Unfortunately, it appears she stole some ideas.

Huffington Post reports that luxury shoe brand Aquazzura is has filed a lawsuit against Ivanka Trump for copyrighting their ideas and replicating their exact design, down to the red ankle tassle and fluffy toe band. You can't deny that the shoes are virtually identical - except the price. Aquazzua's retail for $785, Ivanka's retail for $145.

The high end brand alleges that Ivanka has copied numerous other designs from their line as well. Damning photos are on the Huffington Post article. Clearly, Ivanka, like her stepmom (who plaigarized paragraphs from a speech Michelle Obama gave) and her brother, Donald Jr (who recycled full sentences from a book published in 2016).

Does this family have any original idea? First they steal racism, antisemitism and Islamaphobia from the KKK and from Hitler. Then they stole huge swaths of a speech from a Democrat. Now they are stealing design ideas.

Is anything authentic about the Trumps? Just their greed.
