Ivanka Trump‘s new neighbors say she has completely “ruined” their friendly, quaint D.C. neighborhood. And they’re not happy about it.
“It has been a three-ring circus from the day that they’ve moved in,” Marietta Robinson, who lives across the street from Ivanka and Jared’s $5.5 million compound, tells the AP. “They’ve completely ruined the neighborhood!”
In addition to the general sense of chaos the Trumps bring, one of the biggest complaints seems to be parking. Neighbors say it was already a problem before they came along, and it has only gotten worse over the past two months. They can no longer park in front of their own homes because the fleet of Secret Service vehicles is constantly blocking everything. And as for having guests over, forget it.
“Sometimes there are 10 cars out there,” Robinson says. “They’ve completely taken over the whole street–as if they have the authority!”
Of course, in typical Trump fashion, Ivanka and Jared installed four “No Parking” signs outside their house to ensure they always have a convenient place to park. Everyone else, however, can eat cake. Because when other neighbors tried doing the same thing outside their homes, the city had their signs promptly removed.
“I started screaming,” Rhona Friedman, who has the misfortune of living directly next door to the Trumps, tells the Washington Post.
Parking has become such an issue, Friedman says, that “if you happen to miss that moment before the spaces get filled, you’re dead.”
On top of that, metal barricades have been put up along the streets making it impossible for pedestrians to use the sidewalks, and members of the Secret Service are constantly trolling around the street 24-7, talking in loud voices, and even changing their shirts in public view.
“There are more of them than I have ever seen,” Robinson says. “Frequently several of them are milling outside of the house at all hours having conversations and staring meanly at anyone in view.”
To add insult to injury, Ivanka and Jared don’t follow the neighborhood’s trash schedule and just throw bags of trash on the curb whenever they want, sometimes leaving it sitting out there for days, stinking up the street.
“Are you kidding me?” Friedman gripes. “This is the adult child of the president.”
Robinson says the Trumps have “truly ruined my peaceful enjoyment of my house.”
“It is every bit as disruptive as if a very active business was allowed to come into this residential neighborhood,” she says.
When asked for comment about the issue, an aide for Ivanka told the AP everything is hunky dory, relaying a message from Ivanka that said, “We love the neighborhood and our family has received an incredibly gracious welcome from our neighbors.”

Oh Quick Mo Bro, (Or one of your other screenames)
Come on here and flip out about people daring to post an article about Trump’s family’s neighbors sharing their experiences.
Of course I would take right wingers comments more seriously on this if you all weren’t gleefully attacking Obama’s daughters for things like looking bored at an event (Fox News ran that one for 2 days and talked about them not being “Classy”)
So let me save you the time Mo Bro with your angry posts trying to change the subject.
Blah Blah “The Left” is OBSESSED
Blah Blah “Liberals are evil”
Blah Blah “Daring to mention Trump’s family means you are evil”
Blah Blah “But Muslims!……”
Blah Blah “Oh, well what about “Insert liberal celebrity or politician here” when they “Insert some random thing they did that in no way relates to this post”)
Did I miss anything?
well, a casual mention of Benghazi and e-mails might be de rigueur.
but I think you’ve got all bases covered.
LOL! MikeE, you’re right, except, NOW they don’t want to mention Benghazi because they are all screaming that the Trump Russia investigation has gone on for 5 days so if it isn’t finished now that means it should end and Trump isn’t a traitor!!!
But see, if they mention Benghazi, they MIGHT have to acknowledge that the same people screaming that a 30 second investigation on a possibly treasonous president is way to long, were the same people cheering the 10th and 11th Benghazi hearing after years of finding nothing. lol
Complicit ‘white trash’ with cash, always the poor picked on victim, SAD!
Did you guys get the memo about her office inside the west wing? To think this hypocrite talked about the Clintons and their antics during their White House days only to make it painfully clear he is going to do the same thing with his brood. He screams at his son-in-law for not being “near-by” when the health care bill collapsed only to announce he is appointing him (Jared) to overhaul the government using business ideas. Where is Jared’s experience for such an important position?
I do hope you people realize we are now in a situation that makes one wonder would it be more like a trip to Disneyland had Clinton won. Its just that bad. This guy (Trump) has no respect from anyone on the Hill (Nunes is a Mexican-American kiss ass if ever one existed) and won’t get a damn thing done because EVERY ONE wants him to resign. Lindsay Graham has already said he is not going to support the tax cuts because the country can’t afford what is being proposed in the budget. And mind you Graham is a powerful GOP senator. Ol’ turkey throated Mitch McConnell has gone into ostrich mode but sooner or later he has to pull his head out of his ass (or hole in the ground) and say something. This is disgusting.
I was curious who the women were that are mentioned in the article. After Googling their names, I learned that Marietta Robinson is a friend of Obama’s and was nominated by him to a government role and Rhona Friedman is a affluent donor to the Democratic party, obviously they would take sides here.
If Jared and Ivanka were creating a disturbance in the wealthy neighborhood, I’m sure these women would have no problem getting the district mayor (a Democrat and a woman) and zoning boards (nearly all Democrats) involved. Instead, they’re going to the media to report their “outrage”.
The Obamas live in the same neighborhood and also have Secret Service at their residence constantly and even had a wall built around their home.
Unless the local district gets involved, I don’t entirely believe these two women.
Maybe you didnt read the memo but Obama is an ex-president who needs secret service protection just like all the rest of the living ex-presidents. As for Hillary Jr here and her husband I say with a father who claims to have ten billion dollars they could have moved further out to a place where they wouldn’t be disturbing the peace of others. Being a Trump not one thought went thru her mind if she was inconveniencing others or if it did she simply didnt care.
@BobLaBlah Obama is allowed to have Secret Service protection, I just pointed it out because the neighbors don’t seem to have issue with Secret Service vehicles parked around his home (which I would assume the government approves more security for him and his wife) but some parked around Ivanka’s home seem to anger these same neighbors. As far as moving further away, they’re within distance of where they work. Should they move out into the middle of nowhere to be excluded from the rest of the world because two neighbors (who happen to be friends with Obama) don’t like her due to political reasons?
Then you say her dad should buy her a home, but the left complain that her dad shouldn’t spoil her. Now you’re advocating that her dad should buy her things? She has her own money and can afford her own home.
mhoffman – Being a Democrat – even a friend of Obama – does not exclude you having the right to complain about people who are disturbing your peace – even if the offender has the name trump. You were never going to be sympathetic to the complainants – they are not deluded trumpeteers. The trump family – led by the beast himself – seem to think that the USA is their personal fiefdom and that they can behave any way they want.
@natekerchel I’m just pointing out that their complaints could be fake outrage. Both the women who are complaining are prominent and affluent figures in the DC area. They could easily contact the district zoning boards and the district mayor (whom I’m sure they are friends with) and have something done if there is a problem in the neighborhood. Instead they went to the Washington Post and other news media to complain.
mhoffman – ‘The left complain that her dad shouldn’t spoil her’? Odd language. But that aside, your choice of words tells a story – you say ‘some’ parked around her home. The complainants say ‘a fleet’ and ‘sometimes 10 cars’ and ‘On top of that, metal barricades have been put up along the streets making it impossible for pedestrians to use the sidewalks, and members of the Secret Service are constantly trolling around the street 24-7, talking in loud voices, and even changing their shirts in public view’. Hardly the same as your description. And yet again you try to deflect from the issue by bringing in your favorite villain – Obama. Well, Obama is not the one being complained about so he is not relevant to the complaint. I would also point out that you should not try to compare that lady with a distinguished former President. She is not any kind of elected official never mind President or former President.
@mhoffman953…………..with a house and senate that clearly don’t respect her father what makes you so sure that its ONLY the left that don’t like her and criticize her every move? There seems to be many on the right who are now rallying for this guys removal. You know the situation is bad when the only person he (Trump) could get to say something negative about Paul Ryan was that absolute nobody over at Fox News named Jeanine Piro ( aka Leona Helmsley Jr.).
Yes, I say she should have moved out further because she is what she is. A puffed up little twit whose importance is all in the head of both her and her father. She is a nobody in the political world and is looking more and more like a Hillary Jr. Remember all the commotion when Clinton let his wife sit in on cabinet meetings? Guess who Trump is sending to Germany to represent the U.S. in Berlin in a few days? I’m just curious but please tell me what the hell does she sound like to you?
Did anybody notice that on my earlier post I predicted that Mo Bro or one of his other screenames would come on here and say the usual false Troll comments to deflect.
Notice how when I specifically called out that screename, that it was a different screename of his ”
mhoffman953″ that came in and spouted the usual nonsense.
Interesting, mhoffman953 hasn’t been on as many posts lately, and yet when Mo Bro was specifically called out and predicted, suddenly you come back and are multi-posting in very familiar language.
If you’re going to use multiple screenames you’re gonna have to hide it better than that.
Yes, having the Secret Service running around the neighborhood can be disruptive. That, however is not the Kushner’s fault nor under their control. That is a decision by the Federal government, who can do just about anything they want in The District. When I lived near governor Reagan here in Sacramento, his Security detail, which I am sure was vastly smaller, were loud and difficult to deal with. I became louder — at complaining — and more difficult. When they talked to loud or shouted, I walked over and told the to be speak quietly. If they gave me attitude, I complained to their boss and their boss’s boss. As for the trash, call code enforcement. I likely wouldn’t mind their changing clothes in the street, but complain to them, not the press, at the time. Heck, I walk over there and start taking pictures. When the cars got to be too much, I parked mine on the street right after they left and used my garage and driveway for company.
Like with all new neighbors, you need to train them in the ways of the neighborhood. The Kushners aren’t different just more.
Exactly my point. IF these incidents really are happening, the neighbors should contact the district’s code enforcement, instead they went to the media to report incidents without photos or any evidence. Then the news should report on the verifiable violations, if any
@mhoffman953………..”IF these incidents really are happening, the neighbors should contact the district’s code enforcement, instead they went to the media to report incidents without photos or any evidence.”
Interesting observation. Now tell us your opinion of Trumps claim that Obama had him bugged. And remember, he had no proof or smoking gun either. Go on. Tell us your opinion of that.
@BobLaBlah I’ve already stated my opinion on that several times on here. I’m not sure what that has to do with Ivanka and her neighbords but I’ll respond again.
I said considering the Obama administration spied on Angela Merkel, secretely subpoenaed Associated Press reporters’ private phone records, had James Rosen of FOX News and his parents’ phone records seized, spied on Benjamin Netanyahu’s private conversations, recorded private conversation of members of Congress regarding the Iran Nuclear Deal and more all after Obama promised to end NSA collection of mass data, I find it possible but would love to see evidence of such claims.
It’s just like Reba McEntire sings it in her song. “Sshhh…..it happens.”
mhoffman – the ‘Obama Administration’ did not spy on Merkel – the security services did that and they got caught. Do you really think that only the American services do this kind of thing? The Russians, British, German, French, Israeli services are all doing it. Its called national security. You might say we should not spy on our friends – fair point – but we dont get to decide what is relevant. The security services do. As for the other things you claim the ‘Obama Administration’ did – code for just ‘Obama’ -again you confuse your imaginings with the real powers of a President. If you can prove that Obama personally ordered any of those things then you should pass your evidence on to the appropriate people so that he can be jailed for breaking the law. If not, then stop implying things. Obama may not have been a perfect President but he is far and away a much greater, more honest and compassionate human being than the man whose nonsense you constantly support.
@natekerchel The NSA is part of the Obama Administration, CNN and Jake Tapper agree with that fact: http://www.cnn.com/2015/07/03/politics/germany-media-spying-obama-administration/
Plus I never said that other countries don’t spy on us. We all spy on each other for various reasons whether they’re security related or to gain military advantage. They should never be done for politically motivated or personal reasons – something the NSA is guilty of doing and still doing, especially regarding surveillance of Congressman during the Iran Nuclear Deal.
Obama promised the American people that the scale of unnecessary surveillance would stop but it never did. Obama is the head of the executive branch, the NSA is below him in the executive branch of office. Obama at any point in his administration could’ve ordered that unnecessary surveillance of private citizens to end.
I never claimed to have evidence regarding Trump’s allegations but if you read my response above, I stated that it isn’t entirely unthinkable that private citizens were spied on and more information needs to come out for us to know the truth.
I am sure that if the Kushners covered the entire street in rotting garbage and had brass bands marching up and down 24 hours a day mhoffman would still say its a Democratic plot. Paranoia and trump/trump supporters are inextricably linked. The trump supporters condemn everything reported as ‘fake news’ – except when it is Fox News doing the pro-trump reporting. Given what trump is trying to achieve in terms of his constant undermining of democracy and the never ending flow of disinformation and outright lies, I am surprised that Haiti has not invaded the USA in order to re-install democracy.
I don’t doubt this, but why not make a video of all the things you’re complaining about and post it.
mhoffman – yet again you make general and unsubstantiated allegations against the former President. When people’s words and phrasing of words are looked at you begin to see the pattern of what they are really saying . In your case the continued use of the phrase ‘the Obama administration’ indicates that your target is not the ‘administration’ but Obama himself. Of course you have to hide behind that phrase because you have not a jot of real evidence to place before us that Obama is guilty of anything other than being a decent human being.
I don’t deny that U.S. security agencies did, and will still be doing, questionably things – incidentally you forgot to mention that people in the German Chancellery were aware of what was going on – spies always behave badly. That does not mean what they do has any approval from their political masters. In fact, it would be highly unlikely it would even be disclosed to the politicians if they had not been caught. None of this ‘proves’ Obama knew about or approved of their behavior. You and your right wing friends would have us believe that Obama broke countless laws – but strangely no evidence exists. Obama was not perfect – it would be absurd to make that claim – but neither was he criminal. Time will tell whether the same can be said about the man currently infesting the White House.
It seems that mhoffman953’s strategy is to bombard all negative Trump threads with so much unsubstantiated rhetoric to muddy the waters and make people just give up out of frustration. A bit like Conway’s press conferences.
lol…lol the left is just having a breakdown.
Ivanka is not moving, deal with it.
Of course it it was the Obamas these guilt ridden white liberals would be chanting how wonderful it is to have a halfbreed in the neighborhood. It shows that we are not racist.
@ol’ neon…………………… “Of course it it was the Obamas these guilt ridden white liberals would be chanting how wonderful it is to have a halfbreed in the neighborhood. It shows that we are not racist.”
Honey, its time to give it a rest. The punctuation alone shows you are tired and getting frustrated. You clearly didn’t think your comment thru as you normally do and the last sentence proves it. You have never been that far off the mark. Good night to you and all of your aliases and we can take it up tomorrow, regardless of who you start off being. Nite, nite hon.
No Bob blah blah blah, time for you to give it a rest.
You are obviously out of your league and have no rational arguments.
Based on your teenage girly postings “honey, hon” .lol…lol you need to sit down cross your legs and let the men debate.
