Trump’s decision to invest even five minutes of his first hundred days criticizing Nordstrom over Ivanka’s clothing line is almost literally insane. People took a chance on him so that he would get important things done for the country (tax reform, healthcare reform, national security, jobs, the Supreme Court, etc.), not so that he could have a bigger platform from which to indulge in petty personal squabbles.

Someone needs to tell Trump that his time and political capital are extremely limited. Defending Ivanka from the Oval Office is not on the agenda. It only wears people out. Besides, she doesn’t need Daddy playing the helicopter parent. Ivanka is a big girl and can take care of herself.
