White House adviser Ivanka Trump now has limited time as a new administration will be moving into the White House after the elections.
Ivanka Trump once berated her self-proclaimed former best friend, Lysandra Ohrstrom, for wearing a necklace inscribed with her name in Arabic.
Ohrstrom describes Ivanka as incredibly popular and manipulative even in childhood. It doesn't excuse the decisions Ivanka's made since - but we can all agree that Donald was hardly setting her up for success.
Ivanka was the ringleader during an incident in which she, Ohrstrom, and some other girls flashed their breasts out of a classroom window, but only Ohrstrom and the other girls were suspended; Ivanka "pleaded her innocence to the headmistress and got off scot-free".
Why hasn't she spoken about Ivanka before?
"Though I do hope that fantasy comes true, I expect Ivanka will find a soft landing in Palm Beach instead, where casual white supremacy is de rigueur and most misdeeds are forgiven if you have enough money", she says. Before I learned that the Trumps have no sense of humor about themselves, I remember answering honestly that she was probably in the top five. He clarified - who is prettier than Ivanka.
Lysandra then wrote about how Trump had genuine confusion if there were other girls prettier than his daughter at that time. She has had a lot to say about the 39 year-old, who some say has ambitions to one day become the president herself.
Ohrstrom writes in the essay that 'Though [Donald Trump] never remembered my name, he seemed to have photographic memory for all changes in my body. Ivanka allegedly told Lysandra that she "didn't have time for this s**t" when she tried to tell her about her new job. Ivanka began to scold her brother, but Donald Sr. stopped her, saying that the boy had done the guest a favor. She does not need it.
'Conversely, he'd usually congratulate me if I'd lost weight, ' she wrote. She claims Trump was "shamelessly vain" and has "laid waste to the image she worked so hard to build", what Ohrstrom calls her "more polished and intellectual offshoot of the Trump brand".
She also explained how she and their other friends were too disappointed for her lack of opposition towards Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court nomination or to some of her dad's distasteful policies. I told myself it wouldn't make a difference if I shared my bird's-eye view of the first family because the public had long ago grown inured to the run-of-the-mill instances of misogyny, elitism, and poor character that I could recollect. My disgust with the Trumps was outweighed by my fear of being dragged through the mud, dismissed by the family as a nasty loser. Lysandra detailed more creepy behavior from the future president in her essay.
She said Ivanka accused Ohrstrom of having "really turned into a Marxist" while they were "having some sort of disagreement about affordable housing in Manhattan".
Recalling an incident about Ivanka's hatred towards the lower-earning groups, she revealed that once when she recommended Richard Russo's Empire Falls to Ivanka, the millionaire shot back at her friend for recommending a book about poor people.
