        Happy Easter to all who celebrate and to those that don’t I hope you have a great day too. Love to all here.

        Christ has risen. Happy Easter to all who celebrate and to our Orthodox friends who will celebrate in a month from now. I hope those who celebrate Passover had a wonderful celebration as well.
        Happiness, health and peace to everyone!!!

    Ivanka’s women’s program actually did a great deal – for Ivanka. She stole millions of our tax dollars and spent it on lavish vacations and personal business trips for herself.

      …and still comes out of that shameful time presenting herself as a leader of women, an exemplar.

      In the end, it all comes down to this: She’s a Trump. Trumps work for no one but themselves.

    Shocking. Vanky played dress up for photo ops. That was it.

    I was expecting more than average old shorts for the Portman post, but got stuck on the no mask and the mouth open in nearly every shot.
    Does Sydney not gaf on masks anymore? Are they safe?

    • Coco says:

      Maybe she’s been vaccinated? I remember reading Australia or at least certain airlines servicing Australia required proof of vaccination, but I’m not sure if that’s taken effect yet, or if Portman could have avoided that by flying privately.

        Quantas is super strict on covid protocols and has been since the beginning.

      Yes Australia’s good i think

    • Libra says:

      Australia, much like New Zealand, is effectively free of the virus. Tessa Thompson did an interview back in January, I think, and talked about how she was quarantining ahead of departure and would then be quarantined again upon arrival at a hotel for, iirc, a minimum of 12-14 days. (I also know some Aussies in LA who are desperately homesick, but can’t afford to foot the bill to travel home who have echoed these details.) Upon testing clean at the end of that quarantine period, travellers are able to leave the hotel and enter Australian society, doing all the things we’re dreaming about, sans mask.

      It’s incredibly sad (and infuriating) to think that, had we had a real leader, we could have not only saved hundreds of thousands of lives and millions more from suffering, but been in a similar position.

      • Golly Gee says:

        Exactly my sentiments! Australia and New Zealand didn’t mess around and everybody’s living a normal life now. Two weeks. Two weeks is what it would take, but God forbid that people can’t do what they want every minute of every day, or make a few sacrifices for a short time. That’s not just in the US either. Had this happened early on, there also wouldn’t be variants which are resistant to the vaccine.

    Uh Anna Duggar has been on the Counting On show SEVERAL times in the last 6 years, that doesn’t mean shiz, wtf

  6. schmootc says:

    Seeing Ivanka’s dumb face again made me remember all the rage I used to feel when I saw any of them and how happy I am that I don’t feel that rage nearly as much now. It’s such a relief.

  7. Sandra says:

    I would like to shorten this headline to “Surprise: Ivanka Trump Was Useless.”

  8. Lola says:

    With all the plastic surgery these Trumps get why don’t any of them ever fix their butthole-shaped mouths? Serious question.

  9. Rise & Shine says:

    Ivanka, and Jared as well, were even worse than useless. They actually installed themselves into unelected offices and benefited greatly by it and still are. There are multiple investigations going on and good reason for indictments coming soon. Would be nice to see a little justice for this family. We shall see I guess.
