Self-professed billionaire Donald Trump tries to market himself as a friend of the working class. He’s also relied on his daughter Ivanka to help make him more palatable to the voting public. In light of those two things, we can’t help but wonder how this will go over:
This is literally a story about how Ivanka and her brother made the help buy lemonade from them to keep their "business" afloat! https://t.co/xbVlh24uWG

No, it literally is:
“The only trouble with this arrangement was our location — not a typical Trump problem,” she writes. “We were at the end of a cul-de-sac in an affluent community of spacious homes on sprawling properties. In every other respect, this was a prime spot, but it was a dead zone for aspiring lemonade magnates.”
Ivanka writes that she and her brothers used their “wily charms and persuasive marketing skills” to get their bodyguard, their parents’ driver, and some of the household staff to buy enough lemonade to cover their expenses. They “took pity on us and dug deep for their spare change,” she writes.
“We made the best of a bad situation, I guess — a lesson we’d utilize again and again as we moved on in business,” Ivanka writes.
Some “lesson,” huh?

Unfortunately, others find it to be neither of those things.
"Making the driver buy my lemonade helped me learn about business"

@pauldebenedetto How lovely, to be on staff, and to be expected to pony up your meager pay to make the boss's kids happy.
