WTF!! Someone needs to put a stop to this BS! She's gone from "no job" at the WH, to a "non-official" job, and now she has an "official" job?!? What the hell is going on? This family's egos are out of control. Or something even more nefarious, like daddy is unfit for office and she's the fixer, a de facto president? WTF?!

What's more . . .
"Ivanka Trump's new title in the White House is "Assistant to the President." It's the Highest staff title there is. Even the "Chief of Staff" and "National Security Advisor" are Assistant to the President. Ivanka now has the same rank as General McMaster (3 stars)."

Here's one:  Why are you you, and not somebody else? 

(I'm reminded of the old saying:  Don't try to be someone you're not - everyone else is already taken.  :D)

For me it's because the Japanese killed the other poor bastard and not my Old Man.

Of course you're right and I wouldn't have it any other way.  I just like to point out the god-awful hypocracy on the part of the Democrats.  How about Hilliary's role in the Russians gaining control of 20% of our uranium deposits and the concomitant contributions to the Clinton Foundation?  Let's just keep it real.

The only way to "keep it real" with you is to call your BULL SHIT every time!

http://www.politifact.com/wisconsin/statements/2016/sep/30/donald-trump/nuclear-claim-donald-trump-says-hillary-clinton-ga/

"Trump says Clinton "gave up 20 percent of America's uranium supply to Russia."

The reference is to Russiaís nuclear power agency buying a controlling interest in a Toronto-based company. That company has mines, mills and tracts of land in Wyoming, Utah and other U.S. states equal to about 20 percent of U.S. uranium production capacity (not produced uranium).

Clinton was secretary of state at the time, but she didnít have the power to approve or reject the deal. The State Department was only one of nine federal agencies that signed off on the deal, and only Obama had the power to veto it. For a statement that contains only an element of truth, our rating is Mostly False."

I don't give a rat's ass if he hires Doc, Dopey, Happy, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy and Bashful as long as he does what he said he was going to do.

The real you, in your real voice (once again). Doesn't that feel better?

The people Trump chose have relevant experience and have risen to the top of their professions. . .

Spare us, ffs. Is there some place "in the real world" where you actually get away with saying shit like this? i.e. such idiotic and patently false stuff? You're the same kind of bald-faced-lier as Trump is. Piece of work.
