Report: Ivanka Trump “Loves Her Dad” but Is Keeping “Her Distance” Because Hush Money Is Bad for Her Brand


Earlier this month, we learned that Melania Trump, reportedly still angry about the alleged affair Donald Trump had with Stormy Daniels, believes that when it comes to a possible indictment and potential prison time, her husband made his bed and now must lie in it. The former first lady, a source familiar with the matter told People, “doesn’t sympathize with Donald’s plight”—and rather than let the situation drag her down, she’s surrounding herself with “people who love her and who never talk about reality,” and living “separately” from the ex-president.  Which is apparently not dissimilar to the approach being taken by his eldest daughter and favorite child, Ivanka Trump.

According to a new report, the former first daughter is “continuing to keep her distance from her father,” having come to the conclusion that (1) when it comes to his legal problems, he “does what he wants, and she can’t help him”; and (2) associating with him now can only further cement her (well-earned!) status as a pariah in polite society. “Even though Ivanka loves her dad, she knows how impossible he can be,” a person with knowledge of the situation told People. “She basically wants a new life to compensate for what she lost when she spent four years in her father’s Washington,” another source told the outlet. “She misses her active social life and group of friends.” (Ivanka, of course, doesn’t really have anyone but herself to blame for her social life being affected by her work for her dad, as she and Jared Kushner reportedly made the decision to join the administration in the hilarious hope that it might lead to her one day becoming the first female president. And let us not forget the fact that she refused to speak out against her father no matter how bad things got—even on January 6, when she addressed the Capitol insurrectionists as “American patriots” before realizing how bad that sounded.)

The new reporting re: Ivanka’s stance toward her dad tracks with a similar account from the New York Post, in which a source said last week that Ivanka and Jared “want nothing to do with [the Stormy Daniels situation]. They are staying away and don’t want to be hounded by reporters. I don’t think you will see them defending him—it will be no comment.” (Last year, despite her father’s apparent plea during Tiffany Trump’s wedding, Ivanka refused to appear beside Trump while he announced that he would seek office for a third time; “I do not plan to be involved in politics,” she later said in an official statement.) Last month the former first daughter and son-in-law were subpoenaed by the special counsel investigating Trump’s attempt to overturn the election and his involvement in the violent riot that followed.

As for the investigation into the hush money paid to Daniels in 2016 to keep her quiet about the alleged affair—which the ex-president denies—Trump has yet to to be indicted, despite claiming earlier this month that he would be arrested on March 21. (New reports suggest that should he actually be charged, it may not happen for at least several weeks.) On Wednesday, in what appeared to be an attempt to influence its decision, Trump claimed he had gained “such respect” for the grand jury considering his fate, which means there’s a 50/50 chance he takes to Truth Social in the near future to tell the jurors that they’re either “very smart,” “very sexy,” or “a perfect jury, 10 out of 10.”
