Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, added further evidence to an already tall pile of claims from many of his adversaries there are political ties between himand Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Yesterday, Ivanka posted the photograph below on Instagram, taken during her vacation in Croatia. She is seen with Wendi Deng Murdoch, ex-wife of Rupert Murdoch, and( drum roll) rumored girlfriend of none other than Vladimir Putin.

Putin and Deng were both divorced in 2014 and 2013, respectively, and since then, reports of them dating have abounded.

Thisis Murdochand Dengin 2013.

Yeah, I know, it’s hard to believe a couple who appeared that in love could split up just a year later!

Here is what I imagineWendy Deng’s Tinder bio would look like 😛 TAGEND

I like long walkings on the beach, Zach Braff movies, popcorn, oh, andold, bald, ethically brutal corporate oligarchs who can control the media.

So to be clear, amid the repeatedaccusations of Donald Trump having a dangerous connection with Vladimir Putin, Trump’sdaughter went sightseeingwith Putin’s allegedgirlfriend, which, let’s just say, does not appear good.

And yes, I know this is basically the equivalent of rumor magazine-level reporting( headline notion: IVANKA TRUMP PUTIN DAD IN HOT WATER ), but what if this was that last piece of the puzzle we all ignored that proved Donald Trump was secretly coordinating with Vladimir Putin to win the presidential election?

I know it’s not tremendously likely, but there is certainly something fishy going on between the two — and I use this word extremely carefully — assholes.

Andconsidering Trump’s public praising of Putin, along with his long track record of doing and saying whatever he wants — including, just as a refresher, encouraging a foreign power to hack into the US government, and, many people believe, suggesting his adherents assassinate a presidential candidate — I’d say my threshold for conspiracy theories regarding the man is getting pretty high.
