Ivanka Used a Dumb Fake Presidential Quote in Her Book That She Clearly Learned From Her Dad
When Ivanka Trump is not hard at work in the family grifting business, she’s publishing books with all kinds of interesting information, like American slavery is not unlike being a wealthy woman who is trying to be a parent and a CEO.
The Washington Post has an article about Ivanka Trump’s newest tome of advice, Women Who Work. One of the takeaways from the article is that, not unlike her father, Ivanka Trump makes things up to prove vacuous points.
But at least Morrison and Mandela uttered the words attributed to them: On page 179, Ivanka opens a section on how to “Lead with purpose from any level” with a fake quote from John Quincy Adams. She claims our sixth president said, “If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader.” Anyone who has read even a single letter by JQA knows that this neither captures his worldview nor sounds anything like him. Ironically, the president tweeted this same fake quote two years ago:
"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." – John Quincy Adams— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump)1429199900.0
Of course, it’s not “ironic” at all. She’s ignorant. He’s ignorant. They have a lot of money and little time for reality or the history of ideas, or real facts.
