Just as notorious "Dear John" letters in wartime informed some lonely GI that his girlfriend back home was dumping him, the new "Dear Ivanka" letter wants Ivanka Trump to dump her artwork in a time of cultural warfare.

A tiny group of self-important artists and members of the art scene are demanding Ivanka Trump remove their artwork from her home.

The same leftists who lectured the country during the Cold War that coming from parents who were avowed Communists or making statements favoring the USSR didn’t mean a person was engaged in undermining the U.S. are now more than eager to condemn Trump family members as guilty by association.

They even have a website that begins by announcing, "Dear Ivanka, we need to talk about your dad," when all they really want to do is berate her and recycle fake news from the campaign.

It’s all so tedious.

Once again the man who wants to move the U.S. embassy to Jerusalem and has Jewish grandchildren is called an "anti-Semite." And the man who said he didn’t have a problem with same-sex marriage is called "homophobic."

Philadelphia artist Alex Da Corte pontificated on Instagram: "Dear @Ivankatrump please get my work off of your walls. I am embarrassed to be seen with you."

Then the group held a demonstration outside Trump Tower where Ivanka and her family live. I suppose a group of people marching a few floors beneath your apartment beats having a panicky maniac yell at you on a JetBlue flight, but enough is enough.

Why is it the Obama family was off limits — except for the uncle in the U.S. illegally who was arrested for DUI — while the Trump family is immediately fair game?

Besides this entire protest, aside from being a feeble effort to gain publicity and prove one’s leftist purity, is stupid.

The problem is, as even the youngest capitalist could tell them, the minute you cash the check the artwork is no longer the artists, it now belongs to Ivanka. That means she can do whatever she wishes with it. For example, she can join her dad in his favorite aerobic exercise, stomping on the Constitution.

Wearing some of her signature clothing line, Ivanka could take her Da Corte and do a jig while shouting "Merry Christmas" at the top of her lungs.

There is, however, an eminently capitalistic solution to the problem that would no doubt appeal to Ivanka’s businesswoman instincts. Da Corte could offer to buy his painting back.

I’m sure if he offered the going market rate, with a bit more to make up for his bad manners, Ivanka would be more than willing to part with it.
