As Twitchy readers know, Jennifer Rubin was so angry about Americans saving $75 that she went on some bizarre rant about Ivanka Trump over it. We get it, Jennifer, you don’t like Trump. But this just came across as vindictive and mean:

From the Washington Post:

She’s a walking advertisement for the danger of nepotism, an exemplar of class privilege and a perfect representative for Republican know-nothingism. She was supposed to be the brains of the family and the moral ballast; instead, she’s a self-righteous enabler.

We’re speaking of Ivanka Trump, as you might have divined. She was out talking nonsense again on Thursday: “I’m really looking forward to doing a lot of traveling in April when people realize the effect that this has … The vast majority will be [doing their taxes] on a single postcard.” Thunk. There’s no postcard. That was a prop. And the filing for the first year under the new tax code will be in 2019.

OMG quick, put Ivanka in jail because she messed up the details of the tax bill. Or better yet, WRITE SOMETHING MEAN ABOUT HER.

How petty.

Mary Katharine Ham also saw an issue with Rubin’s $75 dollar snark.

It’s amazing how anyone could think $75 is not a decent amount of money; for many, that’s a month’s worth of school lunches for their kiddos or a couple of gallons of gas.

You’re darned right!

Well, now she’s getting serious.

We’re starting to think ‘Conservative’ is a stretch here.

Ham continued:

She does seem to go back-and-forth on many conservative issues these days.

Surely she had a well thought-out answer for Ham’s question.


Guess not.

Thought-provoking even.

When we read this tweet we thought she’d called Rubin ‘an intellectual and policy gnat.’

Hey, it’s early yet, we still need coffee.


And yes, Rubin is being a snob.


Dowd attacked her for being a widow, and after she destroyed him …

He blocked her.

Considering an old pimento loaf sandwich sitting on the floor of a bus station is manlier than Dowd, that’s not saying much.
