 Похороны в Новом Орлеане. Мой коллега, Дэвид, рассказывал мне, что таким же макаром хоронят под песню "Когда святые маршируют".

От последних новостей уже не смешно. Какая-то Иванка допущена до секретов страны. Ее кто-то выбирал? Беспрецедентная ситуация делает свю страну  посмешищем.

President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump has been by her father’s side since he took office, joining him on a visit to the National Museum of African American History and Culture and a tour of the Boeing plant in South Carolina, among other trips.

But with Monday’s announcement that she’ll have her own seat in the White House — she is getting an office in the West Wing as well as other upgrades — her role as first daughter is heading into unprecedented territory.

She has acknowledged as much, saying in a statement, “While there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president, I will voluntarily follow all of the ethics rules placed on government employees.”

The news that Ivanka Trump, 35, is being given a West Wing office, increased security clearance and a government-issued communications device was met with shock by some experts.

“There really is no precedent for this. I do not have any knowledge of a similar arrangement of an individual with no formal title with an office and clearance. But like many things in the administration, they are breaking new ground,” said Anita McBride, a former assistant to President George W. Bush and chief of staff to first lady Laura Bush.
