Experience not required

Batshit crazy.

Ivanka Trump is leading the US delegation to the 2018 Winter Olympics closing ceremony, and the trip has thus far proved to be an exercise in diplomacy for the first daughter and senior adviser to the President.

Trump met privately with the South Korean President to brief him on economic sanctions against North Korea that the White House released Friday.

Remember – she has no diplomacy education or training or experience or expertise of any kind. She’s a former fashion model turned fashion marketer; that’s it; that’s her experience and expertise. She doesn’t have a security clearance.

Speaking Friday to reporters at the White House, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said [Ivanka] Trump has “been part of the team” as the White House puts pressure on North Korea.

“Ivanka Trump has been briefed on this. She has been part of the team. She had dinner with President Moon and had a private discussion in advance about this occurring and this has been an interagency process,” Mnuchin said.

Trump and husband Jared Kushner’s security clearance status and access to classified information has come under scrutiny in recent weeks.

Asked if she had the appropriate security clearance, Mnuchin said, “She has the appropriate access to brief the President.”

What does that mean?

Banana republic would be an upgrade. We’re more like a stale half-pretzel republic.
