Ivanka Trump and HER paintings

In the latest leftist assault on free enterprise and private property, some sellers of art to Ivanka Trump and her husband, presumably on an outright sale basis, are now kvetching that the buyers should not display them as they choose. You can’t make this stuff up.

Once again, reason to the rescue. The artists and their representatives have every right to complain and express the complaints even though these actions make them look like total fools.

The buyers also have every right to ignore the complaints completely. However, if I were the buying Trumps, I would claim a huge charitable tax deduction and donate the art to the grimiest of Bowery soup kitchens with the stipulation that they be hung permanently directly over the steam tables.

And while we're at it, a great way for Trump to cut the federal budget would be to add to the defunding group, in addition to Planned Parenthood and Sanctuary Cities, the National Endowment of the Arts. It is immoral for farmers in Iowa to have to support effete artists on the coasts. If the performing and visual arts are not good enough to sustain themselves, too bad.
