“These People Have Zero Idea What It’s Like to Live in The Real World.” Ivanka Trump Asks to Pause NY Fraud Trial Because of “Undue Hardship”

Ivanka Trump has approached a New York appeals court, requesting a temporary halt to her family’s $250 million fraud trial.

The Trump family, except for Ivanka, who is not a defendant, is under scrutiny in a case that alleges a ten-year-long plot to exaggerate Donald Trump Sr.’s net worth for various financial gains, such as tax advantages and favorable loan conditions.

Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump have already testified, and former President Donald Trump is slated to testify next.

The last-minute request, submitted on Thursday, contends that Ivanka would experience “undue hardship” if obligated to testify, particularly as her appearance is slated “in the middle of a school week.” The appeal primarily seeks a temporary stay of the order for her testimony while her appeal is under consideration.

New York Attorney General Letitia James has implored the appeals court to dismiss Ivanka’s request, terming it a “drastic” and unfounded action that “would upend an ongoing trial.”

Earlier this week, Ivanka’s attorney filed an appeal against “each and every part” of Manhattan Supreme Court Judge Arthur Engoron’s decision dismissing her attempt to evade testifying. She is expected to start her testimony next Wednesday, following her father.

One person thought the whole thing was a joke, saying, “She has nannies. This “hardship” is made up” with another commenting, “She was a businesswoman, doing business things!”

Another person commented on the struggle normal Americans are facing, stating, “Pathetic, right? What about the hardship every single American had to go through under the Administration she was in? These people are trash.”

Someone noted how ironic the situation was: “You see, the hardship plebs go through is just their lot in life. When a republican goes through hardship, it’s literally the worst thing ever in the history of mankind because it’s happening to a member of the “these things don’t happen to us” class. Chinless milquetoasts, every last “man”, woman, and child of them.”

Privilege at its finest

Others noted that regular working Americans wouldn’t be able to do the same, writing, “Complicit and privileged. Imagine a woman who works two low-paying jobs and has 2 kids asking the court for this pause.”

Others agreed

Someone shared the sentiment of the aforementioned comment, noting, “Imagine how many people out there are living paycheck to paycheck with kids, can’t afford a babysitter or a good lawyer, but are still compelled to show up to court, and won’t get paid by their employer for taking the day off to do so. THAT is an undue hardship. Ivanka (or any of them) can’t fathom what 1% of an undue hardship is.”

Family ties

Someone commented on Ivanka’s family connections, saying, “She’s always been that way since we first got to know her in the public eye. Always wants it both ways. “Daddy, Daddy, can you make this problem of mine go away!?” – “Sure, honey, anything for my little princess.”

Others questioned her busy schedule, noting, “Ivanka literally travels for work. She worked in the […] White House for years as did her husband. Do you want me to believe that she waiting in the car line after school?”

Real Americans with real hardship

One person drew comparisons to their own life, writing, “I had jury duty this week. The juror candidate pool was full of women in this situation. Many with no idea how they would take care of their kids if selected. The only one I saw excused was the one still breastfeeding because they weren’t sure how they could work around her pumping schedule without slowing the trial.”

It’s a joke

People also commented on how this sort of thing made them dislike the Trump family even more, saying “Seriously. Just when I think I’ve reached the apex of my hatred, something like this occurs, and I find I can loathe them even more.”

Another angry commenter said, “Plenty of mothers and fathers have to do other tasks not related to family rearing during “school weeks”! Call your nanny. If all of us regular Americans who don’t have money can do it so can you! Perhaps they would like to spend time with Granny Melania. It’s not like SHE’S tied up in trial!”
