It’s hard to decide which of the people who speak for Donald Trump is the worst. Is it Kellyanne Conway, with her endless lies and deflections? Is it Sarah Huckabee Sanders, with her condescending attitude and constant whining that the correspondents asking her tough questions (which is their job) are mean to her? Is it Donald Trump, Jr., with his snarky, privileged attitude?

Today, it is Ivanka Trump, who went on Fox & Friends to further misinform their viewers about his disastrous tax bill with her breathy voice and pretty face that her father finds so seductive he wishes he could date her.

Ivanka went on Fox & Friends on Thursday morning to further promote her father’s lies about his new tax reform bill, his one significant piece of legislation in nearly a full year in the White House. The president’s daughter, who has absolutely no business working on national policy and no experience or qualifications that justify her position, promoted the bill by saying exactly what her daddy told her to.

‘I’m really looking forward to doing a lot of traveling in April when people realize the effect that this has. The vast majority will be {filling out their taxes) on a single postcard.’

Wondering where she might’ve gotten that talking point about a postcard?

As for her other point about traveling in April to see the naysayers turn their frowns upside-down once they see how the new tax reform bill affects them when they file their taxes, she’s going to be very disappointed when she finds out that Daddy lied to her about that, too. The tax reform bill does not go into effect until January 1, 2018. It will not in any way affect anyone’s 2017 taxes, which is what Americans will be filling out in April.

Is it possible she doesn’t know this? Or is she just another shill for Trump willing to say anything on his favorite state-run media channel?

While her father insists that all of the negative reporting about this new tax bill is just attempts by the “Fake News Media” and their “Democrat bosses” to undermine his agenda, he never mentions that some of that reporting comes from organizations and analyses from groups like the Congressional Budge Committee (CBO), the Joint Committee on Taxation, and even the AARP. None of those groups are bipartisan, nor are they part of any media outlet biased against Trump.

Somehow, Ivanka forgot to mention any of those things, too.

The truth is simply that the bill is bad for Americans. While lower- and middle-income people may see a small tax break in their 2018 taxes, in the long run they will pay more. Any additions to the Child Tax Credit, so promoted by Ivanka Trump, will be offset by their inability to write off student loan interest payments and the massive increase in healthcare costs they will pay once their access to medical insurance is gone thanks to Trump’s efforts to kill the ACA and the Republican’s refusal to renew funding for CHIP.

Further, any savings that the average American may see on their 2018 taxes will be gone and replaced by a tax hike by 2027. Only the wealthy, like Trump and his family, will continue to rake in the cash thanks to the new legislation. Ivanka failed to mention that in her interview on Fox & Friends, as well.

That doesn’t fit the “Make America Great Again” narrative Trump so wants to promote, so his daughter will never mention any of those things, either.
