In an interview with NBC News that aired Monday morning, Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, criticized reporter Peter Alexander for asking her if she believes the women who accused Trump of sexual misconduct.

“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,” she told Alexander when he asked if she believed her father’s accusers.

“I don’t think that’s a question that you would ask many other daughters,” she continued. “I believe my father. I know my father. So I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”

  1. As a rule, I’ve found Trumps to be highly unreliable in their judgement of what is appropriate.

  2. It is a pretty icky question. And on that I sympathize with her. But she is the one who has put herself in the public eye. She might well have thought–'cause she’s not just beautiful, she’s smart–that inquiring minds would want to know.

  3. But you’re always happy to share the ignorant views of the rich and privileged, aren’t you?

  4. Yeah, but here’s the thing, dear. It’s not inappropriate. At all. Not one scintilla.

    Oh, and if we’re going to play the innocent waif of a daughter, move your shit out of the White House. Today.

  5. Well, Ivanka, it’s one of those unusual situations, isn’t it? You’re the member of a Presidential family who claims to be an advocate for women even if nothing ever seems to come of it. Your father is accused by 19 women we know of to be a sexual predator and assaulter. He’s also a serial liar of historic proportions, and an admitted sexual assaulter. That makes the question awkward for you, but not necessarily inappropriate. P.S. We know a bit about how you talk in private so spare us you delicately offendable tea-party sensibilities. That’ll do for now, Daddy’s Little Co-Defendant.
