The New Yorker’s Jia Tolentino has done every one of us the great administration of leafing through Ivanka Trump’s The Trump Card, a 2009 self improvement guide that permits perusers to see how to excel in existence with just a tycoon father and a world-renowned surname.
Tolentino’s story is loaded with eyebrow-raising accounts straight from the mouth, or pen, or tablet, or professional writer, of an Ivanka Trump who, upon the arrival of the book’s discharge, was weeks from turning 28 years of age. However, one passage specifically emerges as particularly, er, very something.

In any case, include the utilization of “points of interest” to depict living inside less prosperous means, and the story turns into all the sweeter.
