It hardly seems possible that Ivanka Trump even has an age, insofar that she and her family have been thrust unto the American public for what feels like eternity, or eternal damnation.

As a lifelong resident of New York, and a 25-year-old myself, I grew up with this law, but only learned of its existence this year.
