First family problems

Jared and Ivanka are miserable and spiraling in “a world of sh*t”, insiders say

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are reportedly living “in a world of sh*t” as they close in on their first year in Washington, D.C.

Vanity Fair has just published a damning inside look at the couple’s private world, which has become plagued with daily chaos, a looming federal investigation, an erratic family member/boss, and a rapidly shrinking social circle.

“They’re in a world of sh*t,” a source close to the couple says. “He may seem cool, but he’s sweating, and she’s like her father. She’ll never acknowledge it and [will] blame the media.”

Internally, however, Ivanka is said to be freaking out about the impact her father’s presidency appears to be having on her reputation.

“She’s been working on her reputation forever, and now it’s going to suffer horrifically,” the source says. “And for what?”

Other sources add that Ivanka and Jared have felt “a distinct chill” from many of their longtime friends and acquaintances in New York. Jared has purportedly responded to being iced out by saying those people were never really friends to begin with and “didn’t have a lot of character.”

And then there’s Daddy Trump, who doesn’t make things any easier. Several sources say he has “repeatedly reminded the couple of what a nice life they had in New York, before they were ‘getting killed’ by the press in D.C.”

Vanity Fair reports:

Washington has been both an unimaginable opening and a kick to the stomach. It is clear now, though, as their anniversary in the swamp dawns, that an eventual return to New York may not be more appealing. Their social circle has shifted, real-estate prospects are waning, and widespread negativity awaits.

Someone cue the violins.
