For at least the first year of President Donald Trump’s administration, many Americans hoped his daughter Ivanka Trump would be able to steer him toward a more moderate agenda seeing as how she supposedly has liberal leanings, but a journalist has finally debunked that idea permanently.
Unsurprisingly, it turns out that Ivanka’s mission in life has been to please daddy no matter what, even if it means letting him turn America into a hellhole.
Reporter Elaina Plott of The Atlantic appeared on CNN Friday morning to reveal the beginnings of that mission.
“When her parents divorced — in a very public, tabloid-based manner — when she was 9 years old, it really jarred her in a way it would any child,” Plott said. “Ivanka decided that she was only going to see her father as good and do whatever it took to earn his affection.”
Apparently, Ivanka still refuses to see her father as anything but good even though he displays absolute evil on a daily basis, whether it be his destructive agenda, war on the poor, his effort to cover-up his extramarital affairs, his inhumane treatment of migrants or his personal attacks on people living and dead.
As “Saturday Night Live” made clear, Ivanka has been nothing but complicit in her father’s administration and she has personally benefited from being a crony.
Plott carefully and methodically looked at Ivanka’s record in the White House and found not one example of her influencing her dad’s decisions.
“I remember thinking, ‘Okay, we see Ivanka and her husband Jared as moderating influences on this president,’” she said. “I was trying to dig up where the first time was that she might have said she was pro-choice, for example, or that she was a huge activist when it came to climate change. And it just didn’t exist. It’s just nowhere.”

The bottom line is that Ivanka is not a “moderating force,” she’s an enabler who denies the evidence in plain sight that her father is a monster.
It’s a sad and pathetic fantasy world that she has created in her mind. And while it’s a defense mechanism that protects her, it doesn’t shield the rest of us from his behavior. And someday soon, she will be ashamed of herself for it.
