Ivanka Trump, Chief Humanizer of the Donald Trump campaign (with Jimmy Fallon coming in second), completely snapped in an interview with Cosmopolitan this week. Now she's unleashed her response tweets at the magazine for making her look bad:
In case you missed it, reporter Prachi Gupta had the gall to ask Trump about how her father's childcare policy contradicts basically everything he's been saying publicly about women and families for the past thirty years.
Trump proceeded to cut the interview off, saying "I have to run" when Gupta asked how Donald planned to pay for this plans when he's proposing both tax cuts and infrastructure spending on that wall.
Alrighty, now let's unpack her response.
Firstly, there is no such thing as "politics aside" when discussing policy. They literally have most of the same letters.
Trump agreed to do this interview to shill for her dad, who is running for president, so of course it is about politics.
But worst of all is that 'Vanky (is that a nickname for Ivanka? can it be?) was condescending and entitled in her last tweet, telling Cosmo how to do journalism.
She said that they should be "advocating for change," and that is precisely why Gupta brought up the tough questions: to get at how a Trump presidency could truly change, and improve, the lives of women and families. To raise questions about how the best possible change could be made.
Apparently, Ivanka Trump expects a pat on the back for obliquely saying "YAY WOMEN!" and expects zero follow-up questions.
Her reign as the friendly, non-controversial face of the Trump Dynasty has likely come to an end.
