It’s no secret that both Donald Trump and his children were born into fabulous wealth. First Daughter Ivanka Trump attended the prestigious Choate School and then graduated from U Penn’s Wharton School of Business. Upon graduating from college, she became a part of her Father’s television show, The Apprentice.
One could easily argue that Ivanka Trump has been a part of, and has spent her entire life, among the elite. That did not stop the Adviser to the President from invoking the term “Real Elites” while criticizing television pundits for mocking Trump supporters.
Last night, former Republican Rick Wilson and journalist Wajahat Ali criticized the President’s supporters on Don Lemon’s show.
According to Wilson, “He (Trump) knows that this is an administration defined by ignorance of the world. That’s partly him playing to their base and playing to their audience of the credulous boom rube demo that backs Donald Trump that wants to think that (in Southern accent) Donald Trump is the smart one and y’all elitists are dumb.”
A video clip of Wilson’s comments was posted on Twitter by the Daily Caller. Ivanka Trump shared the tweet, commenting, “You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided. The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.”
