Trump Slaps Nordstrom Department Store For Dropping Daughter's Fashion Line

President Crybaby is upset this morning that First Daughter Ivanka Trump's line of merchandise was dropped by Nordstrom Department store last week for poor sales.

Nordstrom said last week that the brand’s declining sales led to its decision. “Each year we cut about 10% [of brands carried] and refresh our assortment with about the same amount,” a Nordstrom representative told Business Insider. “In this case, based on the brand’s performance we’ve decided not to buy it for this season.”

So what's a dad to do when he feels his daughter's been slighted? Take to Twitter, of course.

According to White House schedule, this tweet was sent 20 minutes into his daily intelligence briefing. Is it possible his head's not in the game?

For someone who's claim to fame is being a successful businessman, I'm surprised that Trump believes being "a great person" should equal success in business.

I wonder how many "great" people Trump has refused to pay for their services over the years?

UPDATE - "Sparky" Spicer did 'attack dog' duty on the issue when asked about it today.

Via TalkingPointsMemo:

Spicer told reporters during his daily press briefing that the decision -- which Nordstrom said was a result of poor sales, not politics -- was because of the clothing company's displeasure with President Donald Trump's executive orders and his policies.

"I think this is less about his family's business and an attack on his daughter," Spicer said. "He ran for president. He won. He's leading this country. I think for people to take out their concern about his actions or his executive orders on members of his family, he has every right to stand up for his family and applaud their business activities, their success."
