The way Ivanka tried to unsuccessfully elbow a meeting with Queen Elizabeth is peak Ivanka (Queerty link): In the least surprising news of the day, Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, allegedly tried to weasel their way into private meeting with Queen Elizabeth II during a presidential visit, according to former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.
Unfortunately for the couple, there wasn’t enough room on the helicopter, and so Ivanka’s dreams of having a private sit-down with the Queen of England remain unfulfilled to this day.
Later in the book, she attacks the couple’s complete lack of government experience prior to landing their cushy jobs in the West Wing (ignoring the fact that she, herself, had no prior experience either) and reveals that Ivanka frequently invoked “my father” during staff meetings and was described as a “princess” by both White House staff and the first lady herself.
“I had shared with Mrs. Trump many times my opinion that if we lost reelection in 2020 it would be because of Jared,” Grisham writes. “She didn’t disagree with me.”
And even after aaaaall that, Ivanka never got to have tea and crumpets with the Queen.
