Remind me again what Ivanka Trump’s job is? What state does she represent? What cabinet position does she occupy? Better yet, can anyone tell me why she is out there trying to push the Totalitarian Left’s agenda on everything, including outlawing guns?
I do not recall the American people voting for her.
Last I checked, America is not a Third World Banana Republic where family members of politicians become the most powerful unelected politicians in the land…
White House senior adviser Ivanka Trump has reportedly been talking with members of Congress about gun legislation in the wake of mass shootings in Ohio and Texas that left 31 people dead earlier this month.
Axios, citing sources familiar with the conversations, reported on Tuesday that President Trump’s daughter has been quietly calling lawmakers to get a better understanding on where they stand on reforming gun laws.
She may be quietly talking to Senators about it, but she was pretty vocal about it a week ago. She came out on Twitter announcing her support for new Red Flag laws to strip her father’s supporters of their firearms. That was probably where Bill Mitchell, the Trump family cheerleader-for-hire on Twitter, got his marching orders from.
64% of voters in a new Rasmussen Poll are calling for "more gun control" in the wake of the El Paso and Dayton shootings by two clearly mentally disturbed young men. Whether you agree with Ivanka or not, she is clearly in the mainstream on this. https://t.co/yHeznDKUtS

This thing is moving very fast, and not quietly at all.
She called Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) last week while he was vacationing in Hawaii to receive an update on a background checks bill he first introduced in 2013.
“She called Manchin and said she was trying to get a sense of what bills are out there. She had him explain how they drafted the bill, where it stands and what changes needed to be made in order for it to pass,” an aide to Manchin told Axios.
The aide added that Ivanka Trump did not address the White House or President Trump’s position on gun legislation during their discussion.
President Trump also called Manchin last week and told him he wanted legislation before the Senate returned from recess, The Washington Post reported.
Well, if we know only one thing about Trump’s internal decision-making matrix, it is that whatever princess Ivanka wants, princess Ivanka gets! So, say goodbye to your guns, folks!
And say ya-ba-da-ba goodbye to your chances in 2020, Donald.
Seriously, if Donald Trump passes Red Flag laws going into the election season, his base is going to be absolutely furious. Considering how close the last elections were, he needs all the support he can get and attacking the – and I mean literally THE – issue that conservatives refuse to cuck on, right before the elections is, frankly, suicidal.
Hopefully, this all just blows over and one of Trump’s saner advisors jangles their keys in front of Ivanka long enough for this all to blow over and for the Donald to squeak by.
