When someone is complicit in ungodly evil, Americans tend to notice. Especially when they’re responsible for children who are threatened by it.
First Daughter Ivanka Trump got a rude welcome on Monday at a High School in Connecticut today after showing up largely unannounced to give a talk to students.
Many parents reportedly pulled their kids out of school, and angrily berated school officials for not letting them know Ivanka was on her way.
The senior White House adviser was paying a visit to Norwalk Early College Academy at Norwalk High School. The official reason for the lack of a prior announcement was “security concerns.”
NHS parent Karey Fitzgerald told News 12 New Jersey that she thinks families should have been given a choice to either allow their kids to attend or keep them home without an absent penalty.
Ivanka Trump and IBM CEO Ginni Rometty each spoke with a handful of students at the academy. The organization runs on a curriculum developed by IBM to allow students to earn a high school diploma, an associate degree and awards for technical skills.
“To see the passion and enthusiasm for bringing real life skills into a classroom environment but then coupling it with real life experience through internship creates this really beautiful virtuous angle,” Ivanka said, seemingly oblivious to both the controversy she caused and the value of using simple language to explain stuff.
