Indian diplomat calls Ivanka Trump a ‘half-wit Saudi prince’
Sweatshop owner Ivanka Trump, the only daughter Donald Trump remembers, has earned several opportunities to sit with world leaders since passing the White House’s exhaustive application process and joining the administration as an unpaid adviser in March. She’s proved a useful tool for her rapist father’s promotion of his pretend commitment to women’s rights, aside from that time an audience in Berlin boo’d her for calling POTUS a champion of families. Ivanka gets another chance to sell her corporate feminism in November at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in India, where she’s leading the U.S. delegation, and it doesn’t sound like the host country is too impressed.
“We regard Ivanka Trump the way we do half-wit Saudi princes,” an unnamed diplomat from India told Hindustan Times editor Bobby Ghosh. “It’s in our national interest to flatter them.”
Pressed for further explanation, the diplomat said: “Yes, it is a shame that the US should be compared to a kingdom. But that is America’s shame, not Modi’s, or India’s.”
Fucking savage. And true!
This comes two days after BuzzFeed News published a report about how European diplomats make fun of #45’s vocabulary, doubt that he knows anything about heads of state, and consider him “obsessed with Obama,” in case you were wondering whether ambassadors from other parts of the world have also lost all respect for the United States.
But hey, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said “we should be proud” of Trump nepotism. Haters.
