Ivanka Trump has been called a lot of things in the course of this year – a fake feminist; a fake feminist who uses ghost writers (and researchers and fact-checkers) to author her book on fake feminism; a shameless beneficiary of nepotism and an insidious and complicit troll who is using the American government as a tool to further her and her family's interests.
Basically, people think Ivanka is a gem. But did you know she's a gem that can only barely spell?
Ivana Marie "Ivanka" Trump went to two Ivy League institutions.
She went to Georgetown University for undergrad, but transferred after two years to the Wharton school in the University of Pennsylvania where she graduated with a bachelors in economics.
She even graduated cum laude, which is a perfectly respectable accomplishment.
Most people barely scrape through college, but Ivanka sailed through TWO Ivy League institutions and landed with an honor. That’s a pretty nifty achievement, especially considering economics is one of those degrees that sounds close enough to pure mathematics people wince at the thought of it.
In fact, she's even considered by most people to be the smartest of her siblings.
Disgraced Fox News chairman and CEO Roger Ailes once said of Ivanka:
[She] is the secret weapon of the entire Trump organization. She not only has tremendous business savvy, but she’s also street smart. There’s no doubt she exhibits the best skills of her father, has already developed an impressive personal brand, and besides is a very nice person.
Her father Donald Trump agrees.
The elder Trump has always considered Ivanka the smartest and most beautiful of all her siblings. In fact, “The only phone call Donald would always take was Ivanka,” one Trump associate once said.
Father and daughter are very alike in many ways, especially one - they're not particularly good with words.
While Donald Trump may think he has the “best words,” he tends to use the same ones over and over again, and has a very limited vocabulary. Ivanka may not suffer from a limited vocabulary, but she does however, struggle with the meaning of words.
