    Ivanka Trump is usually seen as the cool, calm and collected Trump, a quality that has been put to good use in her father's presidential campaign. But at the Republican convention on Wednesday night the daughter of Donald Trump appeared uncharacteristically angry as Texas Sen. Ted Cruz took the stage and refused to endorse her father. Ivanka was photographed frowning and pointing her finger as Cruz, her father's fiercest rival in the primary, told Republican voters at the convention to "vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to...

    ...Ivanka was also heavily involved when Trump finally decided to oust his trusted campaign manager Corey Lewandowski earlier this year. Trump had been fiercely loyal to his aide throughout the campaign — even standing by Lewandowski when the latter was charged with battery for violently grabbing a reporter from Breitbart News. To many observers, it looked like Lewandowski would be a permanent fixture on the campaign no matter what he did. Until, that is, he made an enemy of Ivanka....

    ...It is striking that Trump was introduced not by a politician, or a business titan, not a religious leader or his wife, but by the person he is potentially closest to in the world. When asked who his closest advisers are, Trump always puts Ivanka’s name at the top of his list. Ivanka herself told the New York Times that when they are apart they speak on the phone five times or more a day....

    Ivanka Trump doesn’t need a $2,000 designer dress to make an impact. The model entrepreneur introduced her father on the last night of the Republican Convention in Cleveland not in a high-fashion frock, but in a mass-market $158 dress from her own label, according to Women’s Wear Daily. It may not have been the chicest choice — the bold red outfit she sported earlier in the day made more of an impact — but it was a smart one.

    CLEVELAND — “Tiffany! Tiffany!” a middle-aged Republican delegate yelled to Donald J. Trump’s 22-year-old daughter on the floor of the Republican National Convention Wednesday night. “You were amazing last night,” he said of her speech. She smiled, cocked her head gratefully and thanked him. On the streets outside the convention, a young woman approached Ivanka Trump, Mr. Trump’s 34-year-old daughter, to ask for a selfie with her, which she instantly posted on Instagram. “Week. Just. Made,” the woman enthused in a caption under the photograph.

It will not remember him well for his air of superiority, the sting of his rhetoric, his frequent disdain for collegiality, his exaggerated estimate of himself as a comedian and thespian. Within the Court and among the panoply of past Justices, Scalia was as much the originator of a school of legal philosophy as Louis Brandeis, as gifted a legal craftsman as Robert L. Jackson, as influential an intellectual as John Marshall Harlan...
