Twitter Has a Field Day With Ivanka Trumps ‘Us Weekly’ Cover Story

Share on Facebook

Sometimes I feel just a little, tiny, atom-sized particle sorry for Ivanka Trump only because she’s the daughter of the president that we currently have in office. But then other times I think she’s not doing much to help herself.

This is one of those times.

She’s on the cover of this week’s Us Weekly along with the headline: “Ivanka Takes A Stand: Why I Disagree With My Dad.”

According to the story, a source close to Ivanka said she was “disappointed” by her father’s decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement, but has “learned to take such defeats in stride.” “Sometimes she and Jared [Kushner] are a big influence on Donald and sometimes he takes other opinions into account and does something they disagree with,” said another source. “They win some and they lose some.”

“While many assumed the polished business exec — and her real estate investor husband, thirty-six — would serves as a calming influence on Donald, Ivanka has struggled at times to get the short-fused tycoon on her side,” reads more of the story.

“As Donald’s beloved daughter, ‘she’s the person he listens to more than anyone,’ says an Ivanka friend. And the skilled negotiator knows just how to work him — stating her case calmly and directly. ‘Where I disagree with my father, he knows it,’ she told Gayle King in an April 5 interview. ‘And I express myself with total candor.'”

“And should she fail to bring him to her side, she doesn’t wallow in defeat,” the article said. “I go to the mat on certain issues and I may still lose those. But maybe along the way I’ve modified a position just slightly. And that’s just great.”

Many also were quick to point out that Us Weekly was bought by the Trump-friendly National Enquirer, so the source isn’t really unbiased.

Naturally this turned into a meme…
