Let Ivanka Trump Be Your Halloween Costume Inspiration This Year

First daughter and senior White House advisor Ivanka Trump has always loved to dress up — and not just for Halloween. From her teenage modeling career to that time she put on a lab coat and goggles just for fun to tour a science facility, she provides no shortage of costume inspiration.

With Halloween coming right up, we combed through Ivanka’s history and found some of her most memorable costumes from over the years. Whether she’s dressed as a superhero or channeling her dad in a wig, playing pretend seems to be one of her favorite activities.

Ahead, see Ivanka’s costumes from years past.

Melania Unsurprisingly Sides With Trump On How She Views Sexual Assault Survivors

First lady Melania Trump once again shattered the illusions that she’s secretly a member of the Resistance™ with her comments on the #MeToo movement and when it’s okay for sexual assault survivors to report their assailants.

On an interview with ABC World News Tonight, which took place during her four-nation Africa tour and will air Friday, Trump was asked about the sexual misconduct allegations against now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

“I support the women, and they need to be heard,” she said, echoing Ivanka Trump’s internal comments and President Donald Trump’s initial take on Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, before he mocked her both on Twitter and at a Mississippi rally. “We need to support them, and also men, not just women.”

During the interview, her first one since becoming first lady, Trump was asked whether she thinks that alleged abusers have been treated unfairly.

“We need to have a really hard evidence that, you know, if you’re accused of something, show the evidence,” she replied, adding, “I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, you know, ‘I was sexually assaulted’ or ‘You did that to me,’ because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories, it’s not correct, it’s not right.”

It’s unclear what constitutes “evidence” for Trump. Her own husband, who has been accused of sexual misconduct by 19 women, was recorded admitting to assaulting women. (The official White House position is that all of the women are lying.) Her comments also ignore how hard it is for survivors to come forward, particularly when they’re routinely disbelieved by the judicial system and there’s a nationwide crisis of evidence collection.

It’s not the first time she has echoed the president’s views, either. From peddling the conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States to her hollow statement on the administration’s family separation policy and subsequent controversial fashion choices, Melania Trump is no prisoner. In fact, she might be the most Trumpian of them all.

President Donald Trump‘s net worth is currently estimated to be $3.1 billion, according to Forbes.
Combine that with the individual net worths of the Trump children, and the entire Trump family is worth more than $4 billion.
They spend their money lavishly, from a hefty real estate portfolio and an aviation fleet to designer clothes.

Donald Trump‘s net worth is currently estimated to be $3.1 billion — down an estimated $400 million since he took office in January 2017, reports Forbes.

And that’s not to mention the individual net worths of his adult children — a reported $150 to $300 million for Eric Trump, reported $200 million for Donald Trump Jr., and reported $600,000 for Tiffany Trump, according to Cheat Sheet. Ivanka Trump, who runs her own business, has the largest net worth of all the children, estimated to be up to $762 million with husband Jared Kushner, reports CNN, citing financial documents released by the White House.

Combined, that makes the entire Trump family‘s fortune worth over an estimated $4 billion.

From pricey penthouses and expensive schooling to high-end shopping and a full-on aviation fleet, here’s how they drop their millions and billions.

Donald Trump Mocking The #MeToo Movement Is Vomit-Inducing

Donald Trump being president is one of the biggest logs feuling the #MeToo fire, so it’s only natural he’d eventually try to piss all over the flames.

Not only did POTUS make a mockery of the movement during a Thursday rally in Montana, he did so while insulting Senator Elizabeth Warren’s heritage in the same breath.

After offering to donate $1 million to a charity of Warren’s choice, if she could prove her Native American background, Trump said he would make the politician (whom he affectionately calls “Pocahontas”) take a DNA test if she ran against him in the 2020 election.

That’s where the #MeToo jab came in. He barked to the crowd:

“I’m going to get one of those little kits and in the middle of the debate, when she proclaims she’s of Indian heritage — because her mother said she has high cheekbones, that’s her only evidence. We will take that little kit, but we have to do it gently, because we’re in the ‘Me Too’ generation, so we have to be very gentle.”

Oh, gently fuck off.

Being an accused sexual assaulter, Trump has become one of the biggest opponents of #MeToo. He’s argued for due process before, which is important — however, making a joke of such a movement makes him look like… well, a joke of a president.

But we already knew all that.

At least Warren was quick to clap back at Trump’s comments, calling attention to the migrant child crisis going on due to his shitty immigration policy. She tweeted:

Hey, @realDonaldTrump: While you obsess over my genes, your Admin is conducting DNA tests on little kids because you ripped them from their mamas & you are too incompetent to reunite them in time to meet a court order. Maybe you should focus on fixing the lives you’re destroying.

Just another day in the States.

When do Republicans start to bail on Scott Pruitt? When Trump finally starts to care

WASHINGTON, D.C. - MAY 9: (AFP-OUT) Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency Scott Pruitt listens as President Donald Trump speaks about three hostages released from North Korea, during a Cabinet meeting May 9, 2018 in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, D.C. (Photo by Al Drago-Pool/Getty Images)Al Drago-Pool/Getty Images

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has managed to stay alive in Washington, despite a laundry list of scandals and allegations of taxpayer abuse and improprieties.
Republican lawmakers shrug off the scandals as unhelpful and distracting, but by and large support the policies that Pruitt is implementing at the EPA.
President Donald Trump has maintained a positive view of Pruitt, despite constant negative press from the growing list of scandals.

WASHINGTON — Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has managed to stay at the helm of the agency tasked with massive deregulation under the Trump presidency despite a never-ending onslaught of scandals, allegations of improprieties, and just plain unflattering headlines.

While it initially seemed inevitable that Republicans would pressure Pruitt to resign or President Donald Trump would fire him, that day has not come, and why that is so is anyone’s guess.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
