Bannon Calls Ivanka Trump Dumb As a Brick in New Book

Bannon Calls Ivanka Trump Dumb As a Brick in New Book:  Exerts from the new book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House” by Michael Wolff, claims former White House strategist Steve Bannon believes the President’s daughter Ivanka is “dumb as a brick,” and describes the meeting between Trump campaign officials and the Russians which took place in Trump Tower as “treasonous.”

But how could Ivanka be dumb - she has a master’s degree from Trump University?  Besides, I’ve never seen a brick purchase high-end breast implants before.  What Bannon should have said is - "Ivanka's dumber than a gold brick.”  That would make more sense.  That said, even bricks can be successful, assuming they had access to massive quantities of wealth which Ivanka does.

And while I’m certainly no big fan of the Trump family, it kind of looks as if poor Ivanka’s caught between a brick and a hard (botoxed) face.  Meanwhile, President Trump was quick to defend his daughter - pointing out that Ivanka’s way hotter than Bannon anyway.  Now, I guess the only thing left for the White House to do, is have Sarah Huckabee Sanders and Kellyanne Conway explain what all this means to baffled Trump supporters.

I’m possibly the only person on the site who actually watched a few seasons of Apprentice. Of the Trump family on the show, Ivanka was clearly closest to all there. That’s not a very high standard. Trump was his laughably self-obsessed self and Don Jr. was speaking with as much bluster and authority as he could fake, all of it obviously reflected, because he had no gravitas of his own. Eric, who showed up rarely, was a sort of quiet nonentity. 

That doesn’t make Ivanka smart, just smart in comparison. 

By the way, Trump was obviously impressed with Mensa membership, so any claims about how brilliant he even thinks he is are either fake or more recent self-delusion.

Good analysis Kosh.  I honestly don't assume she' isn't bright, but as you point out - I never watched the show and have no way to measure.

And we know Trump doesn’t listen to her on important stuff, so her ability to argue can’t be that good.

Melania actually looks to be the smartest of the bunch. You don't break out big from the Eastern Block without some kind of chops, and she landed herself a sucker in Drumpf himself. She never says the wrong things, going so far as to mimic Michelle Obama to be sure her speech was actually well written. And, she keeps out of the limelight better than any supermodel I've ever heard of or seen anywhere, at least she does since the election. I imagine she simply cannot wait until these four years, or less hopefully, are over.

BTW, can you imagine the Right's reaction if Obama had been married to a foreigner who had come from the former USSR? Look how they treated the nicest smartest Chicago girl on the planet, something tells me it would have been non stop rumors that she was a Kremlin Agent ---- Hey!?

Well said!

Ivanka presents a puzzling question – how is it a NYC debutante comes off looking and sounding like a Valley Girl? Ivanka imagines she will be the first female President. Fat chance – Kim Kardashian has that sewed-up.

I’d be really surprised if Ivanka is stupid enough to see herself as a future President. I’d say her chances are even worse than those of her friend Chelsea. 


Those are some great observations about Melania. 

One thing that gives Trump some immunity is that no one thinks he listens to Melania. (Trump doesn’t actually listen to anyone.) Everyone figures Barack listens to Michelle.
