Ivanka’s PR Would Love You to Copy Her Look For $10k
Ivanka Trump may have just gotten her first placement in the Trump Administration, but that doesnâ€™t mean sheâ€™s ready to give up on her first love: using the family name to hawk tacky luxury items.
Following her appearance on Trumpâ€™s â€œ60 Minutesâ€ interview, the Vice President of Sales for Ivanka Trumpâ€™s Fine Jewelry sent out an e-mail to some very lucky journalists detailing the $10,800 bracelet Ivanka wore on the program and encouraging them to â€œshare this with your clients.â€
This in and of itself is not surprising.
Thatâ€™s what sales people do.
Their client goes on a nationally broadcast television program and then they sound out emails saying, â€œdid you see how pretty that thing was, go tell your readers to buy it.â€
Of course, the president-elect’s family isn’t usually in a position to make money off their recent good fortune, but what else did you expect?
Needless to say, these e-mails haven’t quite had the positive effect Ivanka’s VP of sales probably intended.

Your family can’t win ’em all, Ivanka.
