News: Ivanka Trump will work out of the White House office that is usually reserved for the First Lady, because Melania plans to stay in New York with son Barron so he can continue at his old school.
Politico website’s Julia Ioffe tweeted:
“Either Trump is f***ing his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?”
In the ensuing uproar, Politico canned Ioffe and sent a righteous memo to their writers to watch what they post on social media, because it reflects on Politico.
Now … before you get too excited about the possibility that the Slime Stream Media is cleaning up their act AT ALL, be aware that Ioffe was leaving Politico anyway to go write for The Atlantic.

After Politico canned her, Ioffe tweeted a faux apology in which she said,
“I do regret my phrasing.”
Conservative blogger Lori Ziganto shot back,
“Oh, really; the phrasing? Should you have used ‘banging’ instead then? Is that it? All you regret is being fired.
“One thing that 2016 has sure taught us: The Left is going above and beyond in exposing just how twisted fringe they are. And when they are bitter, the nasty reaches epic levels.”
MSNBC anchor Christopher Hayes tweeted:
“just now seeing the @juliaioffe news. Are you telling me after the last 18 months we’re gonna get the vapors because of a single tweet !?!”
“Are you KIDDING me? You have the utter audacity to talk about vapors, Mr. Fainting Couch extraordinaire?
“The press loses its collective mind (I think they do just share ONE) over every single Trump tweet. Every. Time. Pearls are clutched, histrionics are rampant, and fainting couches have huge arse-shaped divots in them now.
“Further, how on earth can you in good conscience defend Ms. Ioffe’s reprehensible statement? Oh, that’s right. Conscience is hard.”
“Real news” outlets actually pay these people to “cover” politics.
Chrissy the Hyphenated would like to point out at this time that Lori Ziganto counts her [Chrissy’s] brother as one of her favorite teachers ever. Chrissy the Hyphenated is exquisitely proud of said brother for teaching actual American history and actual economics in a public school. God alone knows how many young minds he saved from toxic liberalism.
