Ivanka Trump's New Book Isn't Working For The Critics! See What They Had To Say About The Distorted, Out Of Touch Garbage!

no title

If there's one thing Ivanka Trump knows about, it's being a working woman.

Which is why the First Daughter was SO excited to release her second book, Women Who Work, which offers a cornucopia of inspiring quotes, tips, and tricks about how one can succeed in all areas of her life (like motherhood AND building a fashion empire)!

Critics who read the book, however, weren't buying it — and blasted Women Who Work, which hit shelves Tuesday, for being just as out of touch as the author!

Reviewers pointed out Ivanka's sage advice seemed to be aimed at a readership of elite women with her same set of privileges instead of the broad audience the book suggests it's for.

Others harpooned Women Who Work for overusing "inspirational" quotes out of context, like using Toni Morrison's slavery quote to describe being "a slave to your time" when discussing time management. (Ivanka knows the struggle of a long work week, y'all.)

Of course, the biggest critique was Vank's questionable offering of vague feminist values while Donald Trump defunds Planned Parenthood and other pro-women services. We guess she skipped the chapter on silent complicity?

Rutgers Parents Are NOT Happy About Snooki's Lecture Appearance At The School

Filed under: Icky Icky PooSnookiThe SituationJwoww

rutgers parents pissed about snooki appearance

Last week, we learned that Rutgers University paid Jersey Shore's Snooki $2,000 MORE than Nobel/Pulitzer Prize-winner Toni Morrison to appear at the school.

Now, Rutgers is getting some serious backlash from parents for inviting the hard partying, Jersey Shore star to talk at their institution.

Here's what Rutgers parent Nester Delgado had to say about it:

"It's disgusting. Next year, is it going to be J-WOWW or The Situation?"

More from parent Christine Getz:

"I don't think she's a good representation of a role model for my kids."

But why are they so mad, you might ask? Here's some of the advice that Snook gave students during her appearance:

"When you're tan, you feel better about yourself"

"Study hard, but party harder."

And here's what Rutgers University Programming Association's president Ana Castillo had to say about it:

"We're trying to provide different kinds of experiences to students."

Hmm…we could understand why Rutgers parents are upset, but Snooki DID write a book! That's gotta count for something, right?

…Right???

Do U think Rutgers made a mistake by paying Snooki to appear at their institution?

Oh, Rutgers! Snooki Visits University, Gets Paid More Than Toni Morrison

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueSnooki

rutgers pays snooki more than toni morrison

Guess the Jersey Shore star is more of a draw than the Nobel/Pulitzer Prize-winner…

On Thursday, Snooki was paid $32,000 to speak at Rutgers about her hair.

Okay, she didn't ONLY talk about her hair…she also talked about fist pumping and tanning. LOLz.

This May, Toni Morrison will deliver Rutgers' commencement address…but she'll only get paid $30,000!

While we're sure Ms. Morrison will have solid, legit life advice for the graduating students, we suppose Snooki's advice is worth an extra two-grand.

Here's the advice that Snook had for Rutgers students:

"Study hard, but party harder."

$32,000 well spent!

Do U think Snooki deserved to be paid more than Toni Morrison for her Rutgers appearance?
