Ivanka set herself up for this one when she announced her new line of “convertible” jewelry.
Nevermind that it is about as tacky as it gets, to have jewels that swap out for other jewels, enabling even the wealthiest among us to expand their jewel collection while only buy one piece of jewelry, really.

Twitter went insane with the response. It started with the obvious, inquiries about high end shackles and handcuffs for the discerning white collar criminal.
Do they come in wrist cuffs and ankle bracelets? Silver preferably.
Make some gold-crusted handcuffs, it’s #MuellerTime. Tick tock…

And then some people got in a few jabs at the President’s foreign policy positions and business practices.
The “Presidential” Line will feature an anklet with a built-in GPS. Made in Bangladesh of course…

Ivanka herself wasn’t immune from criticism of her shady business practices.
Are these also made in Chinese sweatshops? Copped from better designers than you?

Was that made in some shithole country? Just wondering.

Ooooh do you have one that changes from a Democrat who says she supports women to @IvankaTrump

Ivanka just can’t catch a break. Though she really doesn’t do herself any favors, either. The Trump name, once at least sort of an asset in some circles, seems to be tarnishing. And it’s pretty much been that way since day one of her father’s administration.
Ivanka’s seen sales slip, most famously last year when Nordstrom decided to drop her line from their racks.
After that incident, Kellyanne Conway appeared to break the law by going on TV and endorsing Ivanka’s fashion line by telling people to go out and buy it.
Maybe it’s just that Ivanka’s attentions are divided right now, no doubt the businesses are stumbling while keeping her father’s greasy cheeseburger fingers off the nuclear button takes up so much of her time. Ivanka, girl, quit while you’re ahead.
