The first daughter and presidential adviser grew a bit testy when she was asked about the allegations during an interview on Monday’s Today show, saying she thinks even asking a daughter such a question about her father is “inappropriate”!
She told NBC‘s Peter Alexander:
“I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question that you would ask many other daughters.”
Well, many other daughters aren’t also White House advisers to their president fathers.
After letting her agitation be known, the 36-year-old unequivocally sided with the Cheeto in Chief, continuing:
“I believe my father. I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”
Sure you do! Though we’d call it more of a right to remain delusional.

*Sigh*… as if anything about Vank’s relationship with Daddy is “appropriate”.
We get it, putting feminism before family is hard. It’s a line Ivanka has certainly been teetering over the past month.
Now, we guess she’s traded that in for advocacy for the empowerment of POTUS. How appropriate.
The 36-year-old also voiced her opinions on gun control, specifically on whether or not she thought it was a good idea for teachers to be armed. She confessed:
“To be honest, I don’t know. I think that having a teacher who is armed who cares deeply about her students or his students and who is capable and qualified to bear arms is not a bad idea, but it is an idea that needs to be discussed… Obviously, there would have to be an incredibly high standard for who would be able to bear arms in our school. But I think there is no one solution for creating safety.”
And when asked about special counsel Robert Mueller‘s investigation, Trump’s daughter added:
“Consistently we├óΓé¼Γäóve said there was no collusion├óΓé¼┬ª and we believe that Mueller will do his work.” –@IvankaTrump
“So you think he can be trusted to be clear?” –@PeterAlexander
Well, there you have it!
