The Trumpanov Dynasty: G-20 Edition

First Lady Ivanka "Complicit" Trump, the object of her father's lusty affection, has been present at the G-20 summit meeting, and according to Bloomberg, actually sat in for Putin loyalist Donald "Rump" Trump in a meeting with world leaders as he left for a bilateral meeting. Where were Secretary of State and Russian Order of Friendship awardee Rex "Rexxon" Tillerson, or National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster that they couldn't take their boss' place? Instead, a neophyte fashion brand huckster with zero foreign policy experience seats herself between German Chancellor Angela Merkel and British Prime Minister Theresa May as if she were entitled to be there as a member of America's royal court. Fortunately for international cooperation, she remained silent.

We've commented before on the dynasty air of this family of con artists and fraudsters populating the White (Supremacist) House, supplanting people with credentials in diplomacy, national security and domestic policy. It isn't too far-fetched to think that daddy is grooming his daughter for a future run for the presidency, padding her vaporous resume with meetings with world leaders and important-sounding titles. That's Rump's own experience, having inherited his father's real estate business, which he'll hand down to his children. He may think about applying that template to the presidency for his daughter, but fortunately the voters would have something to say about that.
