Ivanka Trump says it’s no skin off her, or her family’s back that Republicans like Romney, McCain, and the Bush’s are skipping the Republican National Convention.
During an interview on ABC News with Lara Spencer, Ivanka discussed how her father’s win ruffled a few feathers along the way.
“Was that hurtful to hear, though? That some major figures in the party would not be there?” asked Spencer.
“That’s their choice if they don’t wanna be part of the narrative, if they don’t wanna be part of the future,” said Ivanka. “This really is about a really forward looking moment.
Judging by the chaos happening at the RNC due to all the nonsense going down, Romney, Bush, and others can’t be blamed for taking a hard pass on the convention altogether.
Let’s recap on what we’ve seen so far.
The RNC Secretary was literally hiding from petitioners who could force a vote on the rules package.
Reince Priebus ignored delegate votes, and made Mitch McConnell the temporary convention chair.
The Chair absolutely ignored a successful petition for a rules committee roll call.
Despite “nays” drowning out “ayes” on the vote for the rules committee platform, the deputy committee chair called it for the ayes, causing Ken Cuccinelli to ditch his credentials and storm out.
He wasn’t the only person to storm out. The Colorado Delegation also decided to get out of Dodge, and left as well.
A big Trump donor, and committee member of the Trump Victory Committee resigned over the ignored roll call vote.
And if things weren’t bad enough, the RNC now had to make it shady by refusing to release the list of delegates that pulled out of the roll call petition.
So if I was Romney, or Bush, I wouldn’t want to dirty my hands with any of this nonsense either. There is nothing forward looking about this moment. In fact, it all seems rather despotic. The narrative that Ivanka says they don’t want to be a part of is a narrative no Republican should want to take part in.
In all honesty, Ivanka’s words, and the actions of the RNC are usually something I’d expect out of the left. They’re the kind of group that calls total control “forward looking.”
