No one’s sure anymore why the Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin still lists herself as a “conservative blogger” in her Twitter bio. Maybe she’s still slightly more conservative than the most liberal writers on staff there? And that’s a big maybe.
Rubin’s target Thursday was Ivanka Trump, who has been touting the passage of the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act as good for middle America. To make her slam on Ivanka connect, Rubin consulted the liberal (of course) Center on Budget and Policy Priorities for her numbers showing that a minimum-wage worker making $14,500 would only get a $75 tax credit under the current bill.
Seventy-five bucks would probably cover Trump’s lunch tab at her father’s club, but really does nothing for those low-income families. https://t.co/Al9kTU430v

“Seventy-five bucks would probably cover Trump’s lunch tab at her father’s club,” Rubin writes, “but really does nothing for those low-income families.”
So, that minimum wage worker probably wouldn’t even bother to cash that $75 check, huh.

A member of Washington, DC's bubble of bubble-heads demonstrates her elitism and the "let them eat cake" attitude typical of members of The Swamp. https://t.co/KdWPDd8oTh

You obviously don't know many 'low-income' families. https://t.co/HuGK3Rjy8Y

$75 can be a make or break for low income families. https://t.co/e8nojsj86P

Look in the mirror if you want to see "clueless". An extra $75 for a working class family would help with gas, food, or any number of things. Don't be a condescending elitist. https://t.co/CLDT3MONg4

When I was younger and struggling an extra $75 would've help pay rent. put gas in the car, food on the table, pay the utility bill etc. You're another out of touch elitist who has her Trump derangement on full display. https://t.co/EhJnjKhyFa

$75 is half of my power bill.
But please, miss elite "conservative" tell me more about how little money effects me https://t.co/bqx6aBW7mZ

$75 is a phone bill, a water bill, food for a week, new clothes for work…
Stop telling people how much money they need. https://t.co/yhf4v2riDt

$75 could be a bill or two for low income earners. That'll be helpful, you obnoxious ass. https://t.co/87GkWpjFmV

$75 where I am can mean:
2 pairs of shoes
30 gallons of gas
A month of 100 Mbps internet
A month of 2 cell phones
A month of electricity
A new button up and a tie
It's amazing how out of touch someone can be https://t.co/4vWNilj4Ko

I've lost count of the number of times I've thanked God that when I use my bank card as a credit card, I can fill my gas tank as long as there's $1 in my checking account, but you tell me how little $75 means to me, assclown. https://t.co/tS98urv2Ls

Sandra Fluke whined like a stuck pig for birth control that cost 9 dollars a month.

$75 is, apparently, nothing, but then they complain birth control is too expensive. https://t.co/Jw1X6jzjLH

Ms. Rubin thinks $75.00 isn't much money but birth control should be free.
How much birth control could be purchased with $75.00? https://t.co/spbWZ4itpc

You don't think $75 helps middle class families.
Run with that. https://t.co/1BiNowVmt1

When your TDS is so bad you think tax cuts that mean more money stays in the hands of the people who earned it is terrible, you need to reevaluate your choices and seek help. https://t.co/5cQXvIWmNQ

Once again, Jennifer Rubin can not speak rationally on this subject.
WAPO needs to pull from this subject, she is way too clouded and hysterical. https://t.co/76cP0FGc52
