Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
Ivanka went on a date while Liberals were busy protesting in airports. How dare she? She should be wearing sack cloth and ashes to atone for the sins of the man who was elected to do what he is doing.
Two thoughts: first, what happened to the “Leave the Children Out of It” policy regarding Presidential offspring? She’s not the President, she’s not out there making stump speeches for him, she’s not responsible for what he says or does. Leave her out of it.
Second, the reaction is quite a contrast to the total silence when The Light Bringer was golfing, or beaching, or just lazing about watching the playoffs as soldiers got killed or ambassadors dragged through the streets. Almost as if there’s some sort of, I dunno, maybe a double standard?
I’m pretty convinced that:
- The Democrats’ current messaging strategy is “just say whatever we need to, because gullible peoples’ votes count as much as anyone’s. Consistency, logic and ethics are for those square-state rubes”.
- The big media are just fine with that, and playing along with enthusiasm.
