Critics piled on Sunday after President Donald Trump’s daughter was given the confounding title “The Honorable” Ivanka Trump on the list of speakers at the Republican National Convention issued Sunday.
Her siblings, who are also speaking — Donald Trump Jr., Eric Trump and Tiffany Trump, the president’s 26-year-old daughter with his second wife Marla Maples — weren’t given the same courtesy title in the convention schedule.
Such a title is usually reserved for judges and high-ranking officials like presidents and governors — and federal appointees confirmed by the Senate. Ivanka Trump is a real estate owner and former clothing manufacturer who was named a White House adviser with no political experience by her father.
Critics on Twitter pointed out that Ivanka Trump, Eric Trump and Donald Trump Jr. were ordered to undergo mandatory charity finance “training” as part of a court settlement following misuse of Trump Foundation funds — a less than honorable deed.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, Housing Secretary Ben Carson, deputy assistant to the president Ja’Ron Smith and retired Army Lt. Gen. Keith Kellogg were also given “The Honorable” titles by convention organizers.
The speaker lineup is chockablock with Trumps — and their significant others. Fox News on Saturday listed six Trumps among 12 “key speakers” planned for the convention, including the president, first lady Melania Trump, and the Trump siblings.
Eric Trump’s wife Lara Trump; Donald Trump Jr.’s girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, and White House adviser Jared Kushner, husband of Ivanka Trump, are also scheduled to speak. The president plans to speak each night of the convention, breaking tradition.
Before fully absorbing the news of the glut of Trumps on the RNC roster, critics were still struggling to get past the idea of “The Honorable Ivanka Trump.”
FUN FACT: Putting the words « The Honorable » in front of people like Ivanka trump, Kellyanne Conway, and Mike Pompeo does not make them any LESS dishonorable.Because having the title « President » for 3.5 years hasn’t made trump any more presidential.
Aside from not having an honorable bone in their bodies, Ivanka Trump and Kellyanne Conway are not federal judges, nor are they confirmed by the Senate, which would grant them such a distinction. This is just gold-plated tackiness for a base too stupid to know any different.
Uh…This is it?I have questions.1) Why do Ivanka and Kellyanne Conway « the honorable » in front of their names? Is that a joke?2) Where are Diamond and Silk?3) Where’s Tulsi Gabbard?4) Where’s the Grim Reaper? pic.twitter.com/g4fOHOOXOS
Conventions get to make up titles like « Honorable »? I have a few to pitch:Abhorrent Bigot of Zero Intellect Mike PenceDumbest One Which Isn’t Saying Much Eric TrumpExotic Animal Murderer Don JrPlagiarist Garden Butcher Melania TrumpPrincess Sweatshop Barbie Ivanka Trump
Maybe the White House uses the title Honorable for those who’ve committed Hatch Act violations in th3 service of Trump?
“The Honorable” Ivanka Trump? Wtf? She is not elected and was not confirmed to any position. She has not been knighted or won any decorations or been recognized for her valor. The Honorable? Gimme a break. https://t.co/TV1JA47Nqo
It is absolutely inappropriate for the Secretary of State to be speaking at a party convention. Same goes for the VP’s Deputy National Security Advisor. @ProjectLincoln
