Speaking to an NBC affiliate in Jacksonville, Florida, Donald Trump was pressed (by a former employee) to name a few of the women he might place on his cabinet when he ascends the throne. The only women Trump seems capable of naming on the spot? His beloved daughter, Ivanka Trump and—oh, I don’t know. How about you. Holding the microphone. Yeah, you’ll do.
More specifically, Trump relied on one of his favorite tactics of pretending that other people keep saying the thing he actually wants to say, telling Angelia Savage:
I can tell you everybody would say, ‘Put Ivanka in, put Ivanka in,’ you know that, right? She’s very popular, she’s done very well, and you know Ivanka very well. But there really are so many that are really talented people, like you, you’re so talented, but I don’t know if your viewers know that.
There really are so many talented people out there. Just super, really very talented people. People like Ivanka. Or those directly within his line of vision. Just so talented. And did he mention Ivanka?
