Yesterday, Ivanka Trump made a surprise visit to a Norwalk, Connecticut high school that awards its graduates both a high school diploma and an Associate’s degree in software engineering, but her do-gooder photo-op did not go as planned.
Parents furious that Norwalk Early College Academy had not warned them of the First Daughter’s unannounced appearance immediately pulled their children out of school in protest of the hateful presidential administration she represents, according to Local 12 News in nearby New Jersey.
While addressing the students, Ms. Trump made these incoherent remarks:
‘To see the passion and enthusiasm for bringing real life skills into a classroom environment but then coupling it with real life experience through internship creates this really beautiful virtuous angle.’
IBM CEO Ginni Rommety joined Trump at the school.
Some parents kept their kids in the academy, but responded to the unpleasant shock with great dismay.
One mother, Karey Fitzgerald, said, “”This should have been brought to our attention, although I do understand security reasons . . . I think we should have had the choice to send our child to school or keep them home.”
Normally, a school community would be thrilled to have a member of the First Family grace their grounds, regardless of their party.
But Ivanka, who has failed to prove the tempering influence on her father she once promised to be, and who herself has only narrowly escaped indictment for fraud, and whose reputation is plummeting along with her father’s 32% approval rating, inspired full-blown outrage.
She would do better to sink back into quiet obscurity, slinging her boots manufactured in Chinese factories where investigators of the slavish working conditions are “disappeared” by government officials.
Like the father for whom she works, Ivanka Trump has a proud legacy to pass on to our nation’s youth.
