In a column about the Republican convention, Maureen Dowd writes this about the first daughter:
Ivanka must realize now that she and Jared can never go back to their life as New York society darlings. So why not double down on Washington and lay the groundwork for a presidential run of her own?
Many people agree with the first sentence -- that the Kushners can't possibly expect to be welcomed back into New York society, because they've spent four years as loyal aides to Ivanka's loathsome father.

I disagree. Please note this tidbit about Ivanka's young half-brother from Stephanie Winston Wolkoff's book Melania and Me, as reported by Politico:
Michael Cohen ... helped get Barron Trump, the son of Donald and Melania, into a top Manhattan private school, Columbia Grammar and Preparatory School, where two of Winston Wolkoff’s kids went as well.

Winston Wolkoff said that Melania “enlisted” Cohen to help Barron get into schools, including Columbia Grammar, where he served on the board. Winston Wolkoff also writes about how even though most parents at the school were Democrats, Melania was “inundated” with requests for playdates with Barron after Trump won the presidency.
They all wanted their kids to have playdates with Barron.

I don't care if these people are Democrats. They're wealthy elites, which means that in many ways they're terrible human beings. Money and power are what they respect. Right and wrong are secondary.

So of course they'll take Ivanka and Jared back.

Yup. Absolutely.
