First daughter problems

Ivanka Trump says she’s so sick of mean people’s ‘unrealistic’ expectations of her

Remember when Ivanka Trump said she was going to “moderate” her father’s extremist views and be an advocate for women’s issues in the White House, and that’s why she was given an office in the White House, top-level security clearance, and invited to sit in on high-profile meetings between the president, business leaders, and foreign dignitaries?

Well, she’s failed to deliver on that promise. And now, she’s rewriting the narrative, saying she never claimed anything of the sort and anyone who expects her to change her father’s mind on anything is being “unrealistic.”

Speaking to the Financial Times this week, Ivanka says, “Some people have created unrealistic expectations of what they expect from me. That my presence in and of itself would carry so much weight with my father that he would abandon his core values and the agenda that the American people voted for when they elected him.”

Well, she says, that’s “not going to happen. To those critics, shy of turning my father into a liberal, I’d be a failure to them.”

Not that she cares what any of those jerks think.

“Whether my contribution ultimately lives up to the expectations of some of the harshest critics? Only time will tell,” she adds. “But I will not be distracted by the noise.”

When asked why she doesn’t speak out when her dad says things like “Not all Nazis are bad” or “Trans people are a distraction,” Ivanka says it would be disloyal to Daddy.

“To voice dissent publicly would mean I’m not part of the team. When you’re part of a team, you’re part of a team,” she explains. “That doesn’t mean everyone in the White House has homogeneous views–we don’t, and I think that’s good and healthy–but that doesn’t mean we’re publicly undermining [each other] and this administration.”

At least she’s right about that. All the undermining seems to happen in off the record leaks to the media.

    Wedding ring?

    It is incumbent upon you to speak against, “Not all Nazis are bad.” Your father is wrong, and you are too, for following in silence.

    what, it’s too much to expect you stop being ‘daddy’s little girl’ and defending his lies (if only by keeping your mouth shut) and bigoted, racist policies?

    Ivanka, you put yourself out there and now have to live with the consequences. Had you stayed in NYC and continued to run your overpriced sweatshop manufactured Chinese clothing and accessories line of crap nobody would have bothered you. You, and you alone, put yourself in the line of fire and now have to take whatever comes your way like an adult. If you can’t, won’t and/or don’t plan to deliver then head back home.

    Our expectations of her ARE unrealistic; to expect that she would have any basis for empathy of the basic human condition (much less the daily struggles of all Americans, straight or gay), given her “silver spoon” upbringing, is naive and unrealistic. That this little spoiled snowflake didn’t see this coming is where she was naive and unrealistic.

    Anyone who enables Trump is a c***. Someone who does it while pretending to be all for women’s rights, LGBT rights, etc. is an unspeakable c***

  • DCguy

    Her entire life she has been credited with being smart, capable, and gotten credit for things that she had no part in. She used ham handed P.R. to get a little attention.

    Now that people are actually paying attention she is shocked to find out that not only is she not as smart or talented as she thought she was, but that false P.R. doesn’t actually work when people are paying attention.

    On the bright side, maybe Tiffany will visit her in prison.

    “The agenda the American people voted for when they elected him.” I say WHAT? The American people voted for Hillary Clinton.The “Electoral College” (sick) , the gerrymandered rightwing e-lected him. He lost the vote, but won the “election”. Nope, We, the People of the United States, In order to form a more perfect Union, Establish Justice, provide for domestic tranquility and ensure the general welfare do Ordain: Sorry ’bout that, it;s the old thing yo’daddy don’t know.
    Um, Ivanka Trump as the first if not the last rat to leave the ship. The Sinking Ship. Whist the ” advisor:
    Tell your Daddy that there is a great big whale out there. It is called The Rest of the World, full of Human Beings. Not like you, They are Human. Take a chance, get out of the tank and find if there is any human left in you and your Orange Babboon.

    Ivanka, sweetheart, out of all the First Daughters in the WH you get the most press because that is the way YOU wanted it. You have a clothing line amongst many other business deals that you KNOW you are capitalizing on. Get the hades out of here with your whining. No one is listening honey.
