Ivanka Trump Perfects the Humblebrag
12:13 pm, June 1st | by Amy Tennery
What is the humblebrag? Saying something ostensibly self-diminishing that’s aimed at making you seem better than everyone else. Example: Oh, my large, clunky feet are almost too big to fit in my $228,452 high-heels. Voila. This is not to be confused with backdoor bragging, which just as lethal but an entirely different beast.
Ivanka Trump seems rather adept at this — in a Facebook post yesterday, she not only revealed the jaw-dropping view from her office, but also took the time to wish those of us mortals unburdened by a mogul career well, as we enjoyed the weather.
Gorgeous Day in NYC! Here’s a view from our conference room, I snapped a photo before my meeting began. Now it’s back to work. For those of you out and about today…Enjoy!
Ugh — we want to hate her so much.
