Washington (eTruePolitics) – Timing is everything in life.
With the publication today of “Women Who Hate Women” – on the 98th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment giving women the right to vote – presidential daughter Ivanka Trump not only embarrassed herself but may also be in violation of the U.S. Constitution’s Emoluments Clause, which prohibits public officials from profiting while in government service.
“It’s an obscure provision,” said perpetually beleaguered White House press secretary Sarah Hiccup Sanders. “And that’s not a lie. The Constitution is really complicated.”
A source within Vile Press, the book’s Moscow publisher, suggested the emoluments issue might be moot.
“Profit? We sold 11 copies online this morning, mostly men looking for naked Ivanka pictures. And most of them demanded refunds,” said the executive who requested anonymity before speaking because he feared for his life.
