Dear CNN: Unlike Obama’s Kids, I Doubt Ivanka Would Wear $20k Taxpayer Funded Dress

The Obamas and the Trumps have very different views of what the taxpayers should fund.

This is where we were back in 2015:

For the first time since being elected, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the United States. The “quite good-looking Canadian delegation” was welcomed to Washington, D.C., by President Obama and his family with a state dinner at the White House. But the event wasn’t just a first for Trudeau — Sasha and Malia Obama made their state-dinner debut as well.

“When I was first elected to this office, Malia was just 10 and Sasha was 7. And they grow up too fast,” the president said during his opening remarks at the event on Thursday night. “Now Malia is going off to college. … And I’m starting to choke up.”

What might have also made Obama choke up was looking at the price of his daughters’ dresses. While their mother opted for a custom strapless number from one of her favorite designers, Jason Wu, her daughters went with Naeem Khan. Malia, 17, who was seated next to Saturday Night Live’s Lorne Michaels and actress Sandra Oh, wore a strapless faille gown with crystal beading from the pre-fall 2015 collection. The 100 percent silk piece is no longer available for purchase, but it originally retailed for $17,990. The embellished piece didn’t need any more bling, so she went without jewelry. Malia blew out her hair in loose waves and had a subtle cat eye and nude lips.

Now fast-forward to the Republican National Convention in 2016:

In a rare moment in politics, Ivanka Trump made some really smart fashion choices during the Republican National Convention—by wearing a dress she created.

As she introduced her father on the convention stage in Cleveland Thursday, Ivanka wore a simple blush-colored sleeveless dress from her own fashion line. After she tweeted a link to a similar dress (priced at a reasonable $138) from the Ivanka Trump Collection Friday morning, the item sold out on Macy’s and Nordstorm‘s online stores just several hours later.

Now, she’s not likely going to be wearing $138 dresses to State dinners, but it, remember, she was giving a speech at the RNC.

If Ivanka wanted to buy a ridiculously expensive dress like that, she could just pick up the tab herself. She’s a successful businesswoman. I really don’t think she’d stick the taxpayers with the bill.

After all, she was raised by the man that is donating his Presidential salary to causes he believes in — like the restoration of national historical sites.’s, Editor-In-Chief, Doug Giles how-to book:

Raising Righteous & Rowdy Girls

In ‘Raising Righteous and Rowdy Girls’, Doug Giles reinforces the notion that little women don’t need to be pampered by their fathers to turn out right. And having met his beautiful daughters, I know his philosophy works. As a strong-willed woman who thinks her daddy is the greatest guy in the world, I can tell you this is a must-read for every man who hopes to earn the same title. —-S.E.

What makes America so different from other nations? Other nations are built around regimes or systems. But America was built from on ideas. From a blank slate.

Built on ideas that are DANGEROUS to tyrants.

That we have God-Given Rights, like Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Dangerous ideas. Like this one: the people, when threatened, have a God-Given right to stand up in defiance of any government that dares threaten any of those rights.

There’s a men’s version

And a women’s version, too

Because in America, the bros AND the ladies BOTH have a rich history of badass rowdiness.

Share if you think that the Obama girls and Ivanka view taxpayer money very differently
