It’s fairly well-established at this point that the Trump children are not exactly the brightest bulbs on the tree, but every so often they’ll stick their heads out of their protective bubbles and leave onlookers astonished with the stupidity and utter lack of self-awareness that they bring to the table.
A few weeks ago, it was Eric Trump who was a laughingstock after publishing an op-ed in which he quoted Marcus Aurelius — not the Roman emperor, but the character from the movie Gladiator.
Last night, it was Donald Trump Jr., an executive at his father’s business empire, who claimed that he “wished he was Hunter Biden so that he could get rich off his father’s name.”
Today, it was Ivanka Trump’s turn. Not to be outdone by her brothers, the White House “advisor” took to Twitter to issue what she certainly thought was a patriotic defense of her father, quoting a letter from our nation’s third president Thomas Jefferson to his daughter in which he complains that he is “…surrounded by enemies and spies catching and perverting every word that falls from my lips or flows from my pen, and inventing where facts fail them.”
