Grifters Gotta Grift: Ivanka Trump Uses RNC To Sell Clothes

It's not politics, it's branding.
Grifters Gotta Grift:  Ivanka Trump Uses RNC To Sell Clothes

I have a feeling Ivanka is a little jealous of her stepmother.

During the whole Melania plagiarism scandal on Monday and Tuesday, at least one right wing media outlet (Breitbart does not get a link here) attempted to distract us all by pointing out that lookee over here, Melania's white dress, which is actually sold as a wedding dress (squeee!) sold out almost immediately after Melania modeled it so beautifully.

But Melania didn't tweet that the dress was part of her fake upscale "collection" because it isn't.

But Ivanka Trump wore her "own" dress and while it's only $138 at Macy's they only have size 2 available. (Just for comparison, my 12 year old very fit, very athletic daughter is a size 6.)

Melania's dress was over two grand, and she didn't have to market it herself on Twitter.

Underlying the whole effort by Trump's adult children to get their Dad to use a teleprompter and appear more "Presidential" is that his racist dog whistles are spoiling the Trump brand.

It was never more clear than this morning, as Ivanka tweeted a sales pitch for her outfit to the masses, that this campaign is nothing but a giant grift.

Remember this next week anytime Breitbart or their ilk decide what Hillary is wearing is worth taking apart.
