Ivanka Trump is having a book party! Where? Trump Tower, of course. Who's sponsoring? Trump Vodka, natch. Who do sales of The Trump Card at the event benefit? Oh, the Eric Trump Foundation. Talk about keeping it in the family!
Oh, we forgot to mention that Ivanka's jewelry line is sponsoring her own party as well. No wonder it's called The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life, cause she's combining both together! Here is the invite for Wednesday's party, where the name Trump appears no less than nine times, fully one-eighth of the total words on the invite (that's counting times and logos). Quest Magazine is hosting the event in name only, so that there would be another name on the invite other than Trump. We just can't wait to see a picture of Donald Trump and Ivanka Trump in Trump Tower at the Trump book party drinking Trump Vodka. The caption will look like a game of hearts, but with fewer kings and more jokers.
The book itself sounds just like what you would expect from something that has a cover about as '80s as a Dynasty rerun. From the Barnes and Noble description:
The Trump Card also features "Bulletins" from Ivanka's BlackBerry that tap into the wisdom of today's leaders, including Arianna Huffington, Tory Burch, and Cathie Black. "We've all been dealt a winning hand," Ivanka writes, "and it is up to each of us to play it right and smart."
Do you mean all those women have been dealt a winning hand or that each and every human has? It looks to me like a bunch of privileged white ladies are holding all the cards while the deck is stacked against the rest of us.
For a family as into self promotion as the Trumps, it's amazing that Ivanka has been so mum about her wedding plans and that she is releasing a book less than two weeks before he planned October 25 wedding to Jared Kushner of New York Observer fame. Wouldn't that cause undue attention to the wedding? Actually, it will probably cause undue attention (and potential sales) to her new book. Very crafty indeed, Ms. Trump.
Oh, and where is the wedding being held? At Trump National Golf Course, no less. At this rate, she's going to name her first born Trump Kushner-Trump.
