Did the WH superspreader events get Ivanka Trump’s kids kicked out of school?

President Donald Trump Departs White House for Pennsylvania Rally

This is my first time devoting a post to Ivanka Trump since Joe Biden won the election. I mean, I’m happy that everybody from this family and this administration is getting sh-tcanned, but God, it feels especially sweet to see Ivanka’s world collapse, right? Just the thought of Ivanka becoming a social pariah for the rest of her life is enough to make me smile. So, what’s Ivanka up to? Well, she kneecapped her father’s unhinged argument about the media not having the right to “call” the election:

Yes, Ivanka will retweet something from the AP when it’s good news about a state won by Republicans, but when it’s a state won by Democrats, then the AP is trash. Also: the Trump argument of selective voter fraud is going nowhere, again.

Meanwhile, this curious Javanka story came out yesterday:

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump pulled their children out of a Jewish day school in Washington, D.C., two weeks before Election Day and three weeks after an outbreak of COVID-19 cases in and around the White House. The couple’s children had attended the Milton Gottesman Jewish Day School of the Nation’s Capital since moving to Washington in 2017 after Donald Trump, Ivanka’s father, became president. Their three kids started a different school, the Melvin J. Berman Hebrew Academy in suburban Maryland, on Oct. 19.

“They withdrew from the school,” a spokesperson for Milton, as the school calls itself, said Wednesday in a statement. A source close to the family said they withdrew because Berman offered more in-person classes during the pandemic. But three parents of children attending Milton, which is switching to fully indoor, in-person classes next week, said the withdrawal came after parents raised concerns that Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and top aide, and Ivanka Trump, his daughter and also a top aide, were seen at events not complying with the coronavirus protocols that Milton demanded of its parents.

The protocols, which the Jewish Telegraphic Agency obtained, are based on Centers for Disease Control guidelines and ask families to avoid gatherings off campus where social distancing is not practiced or masks are not used. The protocols were in place in late September when the lack of masking and distancing at White House and Trump campaign events became a major public health issue.

“There was concern for the safety of children because it was very clear the Kushner parents were violating public health recommendations,” said the mother, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because her employer bans interactions with the media.

Another inflection point, the mother said, came days later on Oct. 2 when Donald Trump announced that he had contracted the coronavirus. She said the school would not tell the parents whether the Kushners had informed the school of the last day of contact between the president and his grandchildren. (Trump also declined to make public the date of his last negative COVID-19 test.) “At the same time of rising cases in the states and children going back to school, we were seeing the Kushners violating quarantine requirements,” this mother said.

That’s very, very interesting. The Trump administration has been operating in an alternative reality without masks or social distancing for months. They continue to host super-spreader events – which, not shockingly, have led to outbreaks within the White House – and they just thought everyone would shrug. It’s fascinating that it took a fancy private school putting their foot down about the Trump-Kushners being dangerous super-spreaders for anything to change. And Javanka taking their kids out of that school… hm. Were the kids kicked out because of the idiocy of their parents, or did someone from the school just say “you should probably find another school”?

    This feels like the start of a wave taking out the trash

  2. Aang says:

    Poor kids, they don’t deserve Javanka as parents. The selfishness of these people knows absolutely no bounds.

    • Liz version 700 says:

      I hope they have nice nannies who try to teach them a bit of empathy. Those kids are pretty screwed.

    • The Recluse says:

      Indeed. That’s a pretty miserable ethical heritage on both sides. I hope they stand a better chance than their parents did, but I’m not optimistic.

    • Lea says:

      I don’t think they see their parents much apart from official events.
      I remember reading an interview of Ivanka when her eldest was born and she was literally spending 0 time with her daughter who was an infant at the time. And that was before all this craziness.

      I hope they have good nannies that instill humanity in them.

    • Not telling.... says:

      But they do have Karlie Kloss as an Auntie…. and she kicks ass

  3. Seraphina says:

    Either way, this is the downward fall of the Toddler’s family. And while I feel bad for the kids, it is glorious to see them lose what they did not deserve to have in the first place. My tax dollars went into their protection and any “wages” for being on his staff and these two have no credentials to be where they are. When you are placed high up the ladder through nepotism you tend to lose that protection when the family no longer has control – or is losing that grip of control. And I cannot wait to see Trump leave the WH.

    • Kate says:

      I’m not sure. There was a whole article on this in the Atlantic, that Lainey Gossip also referenced, which thinks people will be fine brushing over the fact that she has been complicit in this administration. The last sentence says “The only unpardonable sin in New York society is poverty.” So, we will see but I am not going to hold my breath.

      • Seraphina says:

        @Kate, NY society can have her and her husband. I want them out of DC and American politics, All the Trumps need to be escorted out.

      • Ash says:

        Let’s hope the “Complicit” SNL sketch becomes reality.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        eh, the Trump name is LOATHED in NYC. mostly because of dear old dad, but I think she won’t be welcomed back there. maybe in some very red enclave on LI, but the ci-tay? I very much doubt it.

      • Bevvie says:

        Let’s hope they are all headed to the swamp of Mar A Lago.

      • velvet72 says:

        I think some might be cordial to them (Aerin Lauder, maybe) but Lauren Santo Domingo, who is pretty powerful in that group, HATES her. She drags all of them on twitter on a daily basis. Her husband is an actual billionaire and she started Moda Operanda and is very influential with the fashion set. Marina Rust is also an old money NYer and drags that family mercilessly on Instagram. I don’t see how they allow Ivanka back in the ranks, at least not right away. It’s not like they were particularly liked before this.

      • Mac says:

        I don’t think Jarvanka are rich enough to be pardoned.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Let’s not forget: They are under their own investigations from SDNY for tax evasion and business/ins. fraud. Dead-Eyed Boy and Daughter-Wife not be left with a solid gold pot to pee in when all is said and done.

      • Chica1971 says:

        @Velvet ..The Lauders (Aerin dad) is aTrump supporter. He used his money and clout to get concessions for Netanyahu and hosted Jarvanka at his GT residence.

      • Golly Gee says:

        That Atlantic article was written quite a while ago before Covid came around. New York took a big hit and got a little if any support from the White House because they are not a red state . So not so sure about how acceptable they will be now. But I’m guessing they griftted tons of money while they were in the White House, so there will always be those who will welcome them back. Even so, they will avoid having pictures taken with the Kushners at public events. Image. Image. Image.

      • Brie says:

        https://www.thedailybeast.com/georgina-bloomberg-believes-ivanka-trump-has-handled-herself-wonderfully?ref=home

        Georgina Bloomberg thinks Ivanka will be welcomed back to NY. Hope she’s wrong!

      • Natters5 says:

        The British puppet show “Spitting Image” just did a funny sketch about Ivanka trying to get back into NYC society and having to face the fact that she is now a social pariah. NYC loathes ALL Trumps. I’m born and raised NYC and I think they should stay down south with all the other Trumpers after their dad is forced out of the White House.

      • Not telling.... says:

        I hope post trump people pay attention to how f-Ed up this whole Ivanka as First Lady and un confirmed policy advisors Javanka became.

        Jesus Christ – Ivanka went to hobnob at world events that she has no right be be at….Jared palled around w MSK (yes it sounds like a mass muderer bc he is – Jamal kashoggi are minum).

        Trump voters are some how sooo convinced America/liberals/people of color are against them they hold tight to people telling them lies.

        Do you have any idea how many folks in these “red” states are on Medicare (poor – they get healthcare and food stamps). This is “socialism” – no it’s caring for you and your family.

  4. Rapunzel says:

    I feel for those children. That’s all I got.

    I mean… imagine having to leave or being pulled out of your school, away from friends and familiar faces, just so mommy and daddy can not wear masks.

    These kids gonna need therapy.

    • Ash says:

      What are the chances the kids were pulled out in expectation of an upcoming move because, say, their parents no longer need to work in DC? Maybe it doesn’t work timing-wise as it would probably make more sense to do this during the mid-year break, but the use of the word “withdraw”, indicating they’re not coming back rather than something more temporary, like if they were in quarantine, jumped out at me.

    • Tursitops says:

      What about the children who were forcibly separated from their parents (some still are) and kept in cages? I’ll save my sympathy for them.

      • Not telling.... says:

        Yes…..and maybe if they “lost” the kushner kids – wait….I think USA/trump admin – did lose some Mexican/Guatemalan/people looking for better lives – oh…..wait this isn’t fanticizing – “we” did literally lock children in cages and loose them….

  5. NashvilleGirl says:

    Our school required us to sign a community pledge to follow cdc guidelines before going back in person. We’ve had cases but they have been lower than peer school. No one thought we would make it in person through Thanksgiving but – fingers crossed- it looks like we will! Follow the science. Wash your hands and wear the mask. It works!

  6. Lauren says:

    I’m sorry for those kids that they have those sets of parents.

  7. Melanie says:

    Re: at time William’s Cv19 diagnosis, all schools were locked down in April in the UK when he allegedly was ill, so the little darlings (ahem) are unlikely to be penalised.

    But who the heck knows if / when he was ill

  8. g says:

    after seeing Biden with his bunch of grandkids i realized that we never saw Trump with his

    • Flamingo says:

      He would occasionally pose with Ivanka’s, but not really with any of the others. Ivanka’s are the most photogenic and I don’t think Jr. has much interaction with his kids anymore, which is for the best.

      • Golly Gee says:

        I was just wondering the other day what Jr.’s ex-wife is up to. She had such a colorful dating past — a gang leader in high school who she visited in jail, a Saudi prince, and then of course that idiot Trump; and I’m curious about her love life now! LOL.

    • Not telling.... says:

      It’s worth listening to the Mary Trump
      Interviews and maybe read book. She talks about how “happiness/joy” weren’t valued in their family. So if you don’t value joy and love – you e been raised to believe your worth is based on being a bully and cheat to succeed – your not capable of the love joe Biden and family have.

  9. Kcat says:

    I have some conservative friends who LOVE Ivanka and want her to run for president in the future. I’m so afraid, I feel like it could happen.

    • Sierra says:

      Which is why the trump children needs to be jailed for their crimes. If not, they will re-emerge in 2024.

      • schmootc says:

        Problem is that jailing them doesn’t mean she can’t run. In fact, I bet many conservatives would feel sorry for her being jailed by those meanie Democrats. She’s a mother after all! It’s foul.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        I looked it up and found this::

        Yes, a person convicted of a felony can run for the office of President of the United States of America. The reason for this is that no part of the constitution prohibits a felon from contesting.

        Think it may be time for a Constitutional Amendment, or what the states are doing now, to have something added by a majority of states agreement. (Wasn’t the ERA stalled because of this method, many times?)

    • Mignionette says:

      Ivanka is the most frightening of all the children bc technically she is the most accomplished and the most loved by conservatives. She has that image and lifestyle they all aspire to.

      Also she now has the D Trump playbook on populism and has served as an ‘advisor’, all selling points for grifter followers….

      Her only stumbling block would be the evangelicals….

      • Natters5 says:

        The evangelicals love her because of her Pro Life beliefs. I will work overtime on any campaign to make sure she and her family are never elected again.

  10. Becks1 says:

    HAHA this story cracks me up. It’s just one more sign that the Javanka are on their way to becoming outcasts. When a school asks you to withdraw your children (which is obviously what happened, because it doesn’t make sense otherwise that they switched schools in October), it must be so humiliating. HAHAHA.

    • Kinsley says:

      I read rumors that Jared and Ivanka are calling friends and family about returning and they are getting warm welcomes!! 😳😒 New York high society are a bunch of Hypocrites, so they will welcome them again!! 😐

      • Becks1 says:

        I’m sure they are calling a very select few who have been in contact with them the whole time.

        New York “high society” may welcome them back but they aren’t going to do it right away. Their names are too poisonous right now.

      • MerlinsMom1018 says:

        I’m sure THEIR version of “high society” may be a little different than the old school “high society”

    • Seraphina says:

      @Becks1, is it wrong to laugh so hard at this? Because I find this hilarious! A part of me is shaking a finger at the other half of me who is giddy with pleasure and a big smile on my face. I have always been taught to not find fortune in other’s misery, but damn does it feel good to see the beginning of their downfall and hope that this is just that: the beginning of their end in politics,

      • Nina Simone says:

        I’m thinking they will be welcomed or at least still have some allies. Michael Bloomberg’s daughter gave this really gross interview yesterday about how She and Ivanka are still friends and all trump children are “good people” I was disgusted. Like where is your integrity? Never mind that ivanka’s dad has unsuited and humiliated your dad repeatedly on twitter. I guess rich folks will always stick together

      • Seraphina says:

        @Nina Simone, all I can to that is KKK members think other KKK members are “good people”. When one asks people of the same mindset and background, yeah they will stick up for their own because they see themselves reflected in them, so how can you condemn yourself?????
        And I used KKK as an example, pick a group and it will be true. Most group members do not see fault with others who are the same as them; especially when they want to protect a status or entitlement.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Astute observation Seraphina. We assume a sense of conscience, but many of the rich in New York society didn’t achieve their wealth by acting morally. Even those who are philanthropists may be dirty. Being publicly charitable is a good way to white wash your image.

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      Methinks that there are different clans within the tribe (is that the way it goes or is it tribes within the clan?) of New York Society. The performer/creative/fashion segment will not want them. However, arts organizations need cash always–Lincoln Center took money from the Koch Brothers, the New York Public Library will take their money. Rich folks and fintech bros backstab all the time, I think, and if this gruesome twosome decide to give high sums to organizations that need them, I think they will have at least have that opportunity for society. They daren’t try to walk the red carpet at Broadway or film openings/festivals.

      Outside of that, they will always have lunch. They will always be able to have lunch and private dinners with people who feel sorry for them.

      From what I know about Fashion Week, I think Ivanka will get frozen out. Maybe Chanel and Lagerfeld will give her a seat? Thoughts anyone?

      • holly hobby says:

        Money? What money? By the time this is all over, the government will have clawed back every red cent these two crooks made off of us. They may escape prison but they can’t escape the IRS.

        Also, who wants to bet they are not big donors at that fancy school that’s why it’s no loss to the school when they cut them loose. I’ve been around private schools for a long time since we put our kids in them and the folks who are loved by the school admins are the ones that put out (monetarily). These two cheap asses probably don’t even fundraise.

  11. LightPurple says:

    She also brought the kids, unmasked, to his rallies in several states in September and October, making a big show of the unmasked daughter hugging her grandfather on stage when he was refusing to say when his last negative test was. The school was right to bar them. Nagini has no respect for human life other than her own and she uses those poor kids as props.

  12. LaUnicaAngelina says:

    What’s going on with her bottom teeth?!

  13. Murphy says:

    They’re endangering their own children but also the other children and their parents who could very well be medical professionals. That’s on your head Ivanka.

  14. Mina_Esq says:

    Sadly, I think they will be welcomed back into New York society. All those people care about is money and influence. I’m sure they will be shunned by celebrities and anyone whose success depends on good PR, so there is that.

  15. Kinsley says:

    Those kids are going to be so tall!! 😳 I read that Jared and Ivanka are not going to struggle to get accepted again by the New York high society; because they are calling favors to Wendi, Karlie, etc… they all are a bunch of hypocrites!! 😒

  16. Feedmechips says:

    How does a family who cares so much about their appearances have such terrible hair?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      and her clothes. seriously, her wardrobe is terrible.

      that white “sundress” or whatever it is with the too tight top, buttons pulling and the puffy sleeves? SO UGGO.

      and we all have seen how ill-fitting 45′s suits are.

      • Flamingo says:

        I think the fit on her clothes is a case of wanting to get the most out of your boob job. She dresses in a way that makes her look conservative enough for the trump soccer moms, but tight enough that the old right wing pervs have something to look at.

      • Nikki* says:

        Dutch milkmaid dress.

      • Lady D says:

        It makes her look far bigger than she actually is.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        someone said on here that she should take the implants out and her clothes would fit better, and I totally agree. one of the reason I have to buy sizes larger is because of the damn DDs I have. and it’s SO hard to get clothes to fit right with a big bust, and she PAID for hers!

  17. paranormalgirl says:

    She, too, offends me.

  18. Leah says:

    With any luck, they are both going to prison. Looking forward to it.

  19. smcollins says:

    I’m curious as to how Ivanka and Jared have managed to avoid getting infected considering everyone else in Trump’s orbit has tested positive. Are they hiding it, which wouldn’t surprise me in the least? I feel for their kids, but this story makes me chuckle because these asshats totally deserve it.

  20. Léna says:

    I find people are super good looking with masks but somehow Ivanka looks even worse lol wtf she doesn’t even look human

  21. Ann says:

    That is some excellent schadenfreude. Man this is so embarrassing! Sorry, we know you are Princess America, but your family is infecting people with the plague so you’ll need to find another school. Trump cooties! LOL!

    And yes it’s sad for the kids and the other serious stuff, but this one is hilarious.

  22. Emilia says:

    Unfortunately I don’t think they’ll become the outcasts we all hope they’ll be. They have powerful people like Wendy Deng in their corner and celebrity friends like Hugh Jackman. Look at how many celebs are bffs with George W. Bush now!

  23. SO Dumb says:

    And so it begins. Pack warm sweetie it’s cold in Russia.

    • Not telling.... says:

      Yes…..Putin has a nice home waiting for you….trump will be a start in Russia. Just go now – they won’t extradite him. I’m sure joe would step in early.

      Go NY southern district !!!!

    Jared’s blepharoplasty made him look like a ghoul.

  25. StrawberryBlonde says:

    The only people I feel bad for in the Trump family are the kids. They are innocent. Hopefully they grow up to be decent people. I would hate to grow up with the name Trump attached to me. I hope they have some good influence in their lives.

  26. Ann says:

    So tired of this family already!!!!!
