You always look at Ivanka Trump and wonder how she sprang from her father's fetid and probably stumpy penis: she is really elegant and classy and has a low throaty voice and doesn't talk like a particularly dull 11-year-old. She makes Donald Trump look, if not good, somehow, somewhat, better.

So here is a fun story from the LA Times that details how she works alongside her father to fleece anybody who's not named "Trump."

After Trump "licensed his name" to some crap developers for a resort in Baja, those partners took $32 million from nice people who wanted to buy stupid gold-crusted condos and then accidentally did not build a resort in Baja. Donald Trump (and his children) denied any responsibility for giving people their dumb condo money back, or anything at all. They had just licensed their names! They never said they were the developers! Except for like 50 times they said they were the developers. On video, in newsletters, at fancy cocktail receptions, in skywriting maybe.

As the Trumps and their partners promoted the condos with sleek brochures and what they called “VIP” cocktail receptions in San Diego County, they often left the impression — or said outright — that Trump was one of the developers. Their marketing team determined that the Trump name was the No. 1 draw for buyers, according to documents that surfaced in the lawsuit.

“We are developing a world-class resort befitting of the Trump brand,” Ivanka Trump said in a video on the Trump Baja website. “I’m very excited about it. I actually chose to buy a unit in the first tower.”

Her father appeared in the same video saying he was proud “that when I build, I have investors that follow me all over.”

“They invest in what I build, and that’s why I’m so excited about Trump Ocean resort,” he said.

[...]

Garten, the Trump counsel, did not respond directly when asked by email why condo buyers were told that Trump Jr. had bought a unit. In general, Garten said, allegations in the lawsuit “were never proven.”

A July 2007 newsletter sent to condo buyers also stated that the resort was being “developed by one of the most respected names in real estate, Donald J. Trump.”

Further buttressing buyers’ belief that Trump was one of the developers, not just a brand name, Trump personally signed an August 2007 letter to condo buyers that identified him as exactly that. It was on the letterhead of P.B. Impulsores, the Mexican company named in unit purchase documents as the resort developer.

The letter, co-signed by Jason Grosfeld of Irongate, urged buyers to read an attached “Frequently Asked Questions” sheet about the project. This time, Trump and Irongate were listed as the developers.

But what was Ivanka doing to convince nice people to lose all their money and never get it back and then settle for "an undisclosed sum" that, if they followed Trump's hundreds of other settlements, would be for pennies on the dollar?

She was telling them they would be BEST FRIENDS.

Simms, 50, and Sapol, who went to the same party with her husband, Jeff, remembered meeting Ivanka Trump as waiters served canapés.

“She was joking around that she was my upstairs neighbor, and she could borrow sugar from me,” Simms recalled.

I keep thinking that if Sandra Bullock and I were next door neighbors, we would be really good friends and hang out and drink wine in the afternoons. But Sandra Bullock has never asked me for a hundred thousand dollars and then told me would hang out and drink wine in the afternoons. It would be weird if she did that, I think!

So, did Ivanka Trump go on to lie like her father's weird ferret hair?

Ivanka Trump later told CBS News that her family had “lived up to our obligation under a license agreement.”

“We were never the developer of this project, and that was made clear,” she said. “We never took anyone’s deposit.”

Trump, she said, was just the brand. “I am sorry for everyone, but we are in the same boat,” she said.

They are in the same boat, you guys! They only got half a million dollars in licensing fees, instead of losing their life savings, and that is just exactly the same thing! It also brings to mind the time Trump looked at A Homeless and said the guy was $900 million richer than poor old Donald Trump, because the guy living on the street did not have debt (that he would end up not paying anyway).

And there you have it, Donald Trump's one redeeming quality (his hot daughter) is not very redeeming after all, because she is a gross grifty pathological liar. (But hot.)
