Find something new

 




Senior Advisor Ivanka Trump on how the #FindSomethingNew advertising campaign seeks to raise awareness about the multiple pathways that exist for people to find a career

イヴァンカが失業に苦しんでいるアメリカ国民にFind something newと呼びかけて失笑を買っています。トランプ批判の急先鋒のリンカーンプロジェクトの動画はこちら。



I mean, who cares if you're about to be evicted, lose your health care, or can't make ends meed. Find something new. Can't feed your kids, let them eat cake.

庶民の苦しみを理解しないセリフと言えばlet them eat cakeなんでしょう。いろいろなメディアで使っています。

The First Daughter channels Marie Antoinette as she lectures unemployed Americans
EDWARD LUCE

Ms Trump’s outsized role in American life epitomises more than just her father’s administration. She is little different to close relatives of many wealthy Americans who have mistaken their inheritance for a licence to lecture those less fortunate. It is not Ms Trump’s misreading of the jobs market that sets her apart. It is the fact that she and Jared Kushner, her husband, are the US president’s closest advisers.

フィナンシャルタイムズのコラムにあるmany wealthy Americans who have mistaken their inheritance for a licence to lecture those less fortunateという指摘は以前話題になった漫画を思い出させますね。

努力をすれば報われる。それは正しいことかもしれないけれど、きっと現実はそれだけじゃないはず。誰にでもチャンスがある世界にするためには、何が必要なのか?
そんな問題を描いた、Toby Morrisさんのマンガ。
貧しい家庭に育った子供が、貧しいままになってしまうという現象は「貧困の再生産」とも呼ばれ、その視点をわかりやすくまとめたこの作品はアメリカでも話題になりました。



こういう決まり文句はバリエーションも生まれるのが面白いところ。イバンカは政権スタッフにもかかわらずいち民間企業のGoya beansを自分のインスタで取り上げたことでさらに呆れさせました。それを批判して生まれたのがlet them eat beans. Goya beans!

Besides, this sends a broader message! This just goes to show that millions of Americans, if they tried, could Find Something New, as Ivanka’s most recent (pre-bean) ad campaign tried to remind them. Of course! That was it. It was that the thought of getting a new job had not occurred to people; that was why they were struggling and filing for unemployment in huge numbers. And if people do not have enough bread, let them eat beans. Goya beans! They might turn out to be cake. Anything might!
