The White House Romanovs (UPDATED)

We thought the Romanov dynasty was extinguished in 1917 following the Bolshevik revolution in Russia. It appears that it's alive and well in the White (Supremacist) House of narcissistic man-toddler Donald "Rump" Trump.  The elevation of his favorite (ahem) daughter Ivanka "Complicit" Trump and her prince consort husband Jared "Mr. Ivanka Trump" Kushner to advisory positions in the White House reeks of nepotism and conflict of interest (especially since neither has shed their private business interests).  It's one thing to use the spotlight of the Presidency to shill for your clothing / jewelry / real estate businesses, but it's another for Complicit to have a prominent place in meetings with foreign heads of state:

With Japanese P.M. Shinzo Abe
With Canadian P.M. Justin Trudeau
With German Chancellor Angela Merkel

There's more than a little "royal family" vibe going on here. Is Rump grooming her to be a future candidate for office? Or is this simply a case of signaling to foreign leaders that doing business with the family is good business for their countries? Either way, it's a betrayal of public trust and a misuse of their official positions for personal gain. In a just world, it would be one of many grounds for his well-earned impeachment.

"WH Romanovs!" I like it!!!
There is an item over at 'Raw Story' that D. Feinstein held an impromptu interview & mentioned trump would "get himself out". It was pretty vague, but, ................
I always thought 'he' just wanted to 'WIN' the presidency, but not to BE president.
He just doesn't have IT! OH, PLEASE LET IT BE !!!!!!!!!!

F.M. - We're hoping Feinstein's right. The key to Rump is his need for constant adulation. If that drops off, or the law gets too close to his illegalities, he may pull the plug and resign.
