Former President Donald Trump slammed Ivanka Trump. The 45th president threw shade at his eldest daughter on his social media platform, Truth Social, on June 10, responding to Ivanka’s testimony in a video shown by the January 6 committee. Donald posted: “Ivanka Trump was not involved in looking at, or studying, Election results. She had long since checked out and was, in my opinion, only trying to be respectful to Bill Barr and his position as Attorney General (he sucked!).” Ivanka worked as an “advisor to the president,” which is traditionally one of the most important positions in the White House. Her dad saying she had “long since checked out” was a definite diss on his daughter.
In her statement at the June 9 hearing, Rep. Liz Cheney said, “Many of President Trump’s White House staff also recognized that the evidence did not support the claims President Trump was making” (via Politico). Cheney explained, “This is the president’s daughter, commenting on Bill Barr’s statement that the [Justice] Department found no fraud sufficient to overturn the election.” The Wyoming lawmaker showed a video clip of the former president’s daughter answering a question from the January 6 committee. She was asked if Barr’s statement about the election changed her perspective on the 2020 election. “It affected my perspective,” Ivanka responded. “I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accept what he was saying.” Ouch.
