Cosmopolitan ran an interview with Ivanka Trump on Wednesday involving complex questions about her father's just-released childcare plan, which she helped unveil. And wow, she did not see questions like these coming.
In 2004, Donald Trump said that pregnancy is an inconvenient thing for a business. It's surprising to see this policy from him today. Can you talk a little bit about those comments, and perhaps what has changed?
This time, however, Prachi Gupta's questions ran her over like a freight train, and she was eventually crushed by the weight of reality, bowing out of the interview early.
Here's one of her answers:
So I think that you have a lot of negativity in these questions, and I think my father has put forth a very comprehensive and really revolutionary plan to deal with a lot of issues. So I don't know how useful it is to spend too much time with you on this if you're going to make a comment like that.
Yup, before cutting it short, Trump rebuked Gupta for the "negativity" of her questions while simultaneously lauding her father for finally attempting to thoughtfully address any serious issue at all (are we giving out participation awards now?).
