The One Bank She's Qualified to Head

One of the stranger stories to hit the news last week was a rumor that Ivanka Trump was under consideration to head the World Bank. Ivanka Trump's international business expertise is limited to selling knockoff shoes made in sweatshops, so it's odd that she would even be in the running for heading up the World Bank. That being said, if an incompetent boob like Paul Wolfowitz could be head of the bank, a complicit twit like Ivanka could, with the same degree of cronyism and corruption.

In my estimation, she would be a disaster as leader of the World Bank- the only bank she's qualified to lead is her father's spank bank.

i suppose - and i could be wrong - that ivanka is ultimately a tragic figure, without the leavening of absurdity that makes her father such a colorful character (and who knows what kinds of harm (and good?) his presidency will ultimately produce?) is she as vacuous as she appears, or is this a clever masquerade?

may the creative forces of the universe have mercy on our souls, if any

I dunno if she's a tragic figure. She's a spoiled kid who is coddled by a media which doesn't want to show how she is just as bad as her brothers. I guess that we'll finally understand her role in this shitshow when it finally ends, hopefully within the next year or two.
