Ivanka Trump is as smart as she is gorgeous.
Those reasons, coupled with her last name, are why she is loathed by Democrats.
Is that such a bad thing, though?
Ivanka is now rumored to be on a shortlist of potential candidates to lead the World Bank.
She did graduate cum laude from Wharton with a degree in economics, after all.
President Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who works as a White House adviser, is one of the names being considered as a replacement for The World Bank’s outgoing president, Jim Yong Kim, the Financial Times reported Friday.
The DC-based World Bank, founded after World War II to finance economic-development projects in emerging economies, has traditionally been led by an American. Kim’s sudden departure from the bank came as a surprise to employees and leaves the bank’s future uncertain.
The Trump administration, which has been wary of and even hostile toward Western-led international institutions like the World Bank, will now be tasked with submitting a recommendation to the bank’s board.
Jared Kushner, husband to Ivanka and son-in-law of President Trump, was rumored to be a top choice for White House chief of staff.
We now know former OMB Director Mick Mulvaney will be acting COS, replacing General John Kelly.
Late night host Jimmy Kimmel thought he’d make a crude sexual joke about Ivanka and get away with it.
He was wrong.
From The Daily Wire:
On Thursday, late-night host Jimmy Kimmel continued his steady stream of Donald Trump-themed monologues, with a series of partisan takes on the most recent Trump news. While his audience enthusiastically applauded most of his jabs at Trump, one missed the mark with a segment of the audience, who responded with groans to the host going out of his way to drop a sexual joke about Trump’s daughter.
Kimmel: “I guess the thinking is: if he’s good enough to screw my daughter, he’s good enough to screw the country.“
“I really hope he hires Jared and then he fires Jared so we go through the whole thing.“
The sexual joke followed a series of other predictably Trump-disparaging quips that conveniently highlighted as much of the bad reports surrounding the president as he could muster in the brief monologue.
Many people will agree that Kushner is a lucky man.
Having the gorgeous Ivanka by his side is enough to make any man jealous.
Check out the stunning outfit Ivanka wore to a campaign rally in Cleveland before the midterm elections…

During a rally in Tennessee, Lee Greenwood belted out “God Bless the USA” before a crowd of thousands while 45 made his way to the stage.
It could not have been more perfect.
THANK YOU TENNESSEE! What a great crowd to see @realDonaldTrump and support at @VoteMarsha Blackburn for Senate. She needs your support Tuesday. Also amazing to hear Lee Greenwood perform “God Bless the USA” live to a packed house. 🇺🇸 pic.twitter.com/5Rxay9pkOo

Democrat Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX) was said to be considered as Hillary Clinton’s vice presidential running mate in 2016.
Obviously, that title went to Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.
Appearing on CNN, Castro implicitly implies that Kushner was responsible for the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia.
From The Daily Wire:
House Intelligence Committee member Rep. Joaquin Castro (D-TX) promoted a conspiracy theory without any evidence on Friday, saying that Jared Kushner may have been behind the apparent murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Castro: “Jared Kushner may have, with U.S. intelligence, delivered a hit list, an enemies list, to the crown prince, to MBS, in Saudi Arabia and that the prince may have acted on that, and one of the people he took action against is Mr. Khashoggi.“

.@JoaquinCastrotx’s allegation is an outrageous slanderous lie without a shred of proof, it’s reprehensible for a sitting Congressman and supposed “news” outlets to continue citing an article that used unnamed sources and was completely debunked.https://t.co/xf2Zhitg8B

This has to be among the most irresponsible accusations ever leveled without a whit of evidence for it, one obviously reflecting full-blown TDS. https://t.co/9hrXhIYFuF

Castro then backtracked:
To be clear, I did not intend to accuse @jaredkushner of orchestrating anything. Based on press reporting, I’m asking for Congress to open an investigation of whether any US Intelligence was shared with Saudi Arabia that led to political persecution or killing of #Khashoggi (1/7) https://t.co/31vUT7bEUc
