Send a Dictionary to Poor Ivanka!

If Ivanka Trump is "complicit," as critics and even a "Saturday Night Live" perfume sketch allege, she's not concerned.

"I don't know what it means to be complicit, but I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly, that my father's administration is the success that I know it will be," Trump told CBS News' Gayle King in an interview taped Tuesday.
I'm betting that she also doesn't know the meanings of other words and phrases, such as "nepotism" or "conflict of interest".

As a public service to Ivanka:
Complicit (ˌkɒmˈplɪsɪt )
involved with others in reprehensible or illegal activity

Anyway, in case you missed the SNL sketch that she was asked about, here it is:

I'm betting that the Internet is now blowing up over this, but I don't have the time to go enjoy the outpouring of snark.

In case you have a beat-up dictionary lying around, you might want to mail it to:

Ms. Ivanka Trump
Assistant to the President
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500

(And if you find a Russian-English one at the thrift sore, mail it to her daddy. Or you can send him one of these books.)

Perhaps that Russian spy they let go early for good behavior a few days ago read some of those books...

I stop here and read your blog, as you are a fascinating person. I try to stay away from politics, as I know that they can become a big circle of nothing. I do, however, want to make one comment on Ivanka and her "advising" her father, the president. Many find it a bad thing, nepotism and such. Those people who do should remember that JFK appointed his brother Robert as his attorney general. I am not in the slightest way comparing Ivanka Trump to Bobby Kennedy, merely saying that hating her simply because of her relationship is not fair. You are free to be angry because she is not qualified to advise the local dog collector, etc. But nepotism is an unfair charge. If I remember, also, Bill Clinton allowed Hillary to run his attempt at health care reform. And Hillary also said she had a place in her administration for Bill, involving the economy.

Presidential spouses are part of the team. At least in my lifetime, they've all had causes that they worked on. Maybe not Pat Nixon, but the rest did.

As for RFK, the law was changed after him to forbid that sort of nepotism. And it was nepotism.
