Ivanka Trump, first daughter and unpaid employee in the Trump administration, is on the cover of US Weekly with a headline that reads, “Ivanka Takes A Stand: Why I Disagree With My Father.”
In the accompanying article, a “source close to Ivanka” said,
Sometimes she and Jared are a big influence on Donald and sometimes he takes other opinions into account and does something they disagree with.
They win some and they lose some.
The article also quotes an interview with Gayle King in which Trump said, “Where I disagree with my father, he knows it. And I express myself with total candor.”
But people aren’t buying it.
They see this as an apparent PR move and nothing more than an empty attempt at rebranding herself.

A lot of people on Twitter collectively rolled their eyes at this story.

Ivanka is doing damage control for herself and her family brand. “I may lose, but maybe along the way I’ve modified [Trump’s] position.” pic.twitter.com/3RH8lNdRQt

This cover is fascinating, rhetorically speaking. It also sets up a life raft for Ivanka-as-celebrity when/if presidency explodes pic.twitter.com/4YMqqRA82l

If Ivanka was really taking a stand against her father, she’d arguably step away from the Trump administration completely.
Trump has continuously attempted to paint herself as the progressive voice of reason in the White House.
Even if that’s true, it clearly isn’t doing much.
The first daughter reportedly urged President Donald Trump to not withdraw from the Paris climate accord, for example, and we all know how that ended up.

Leaving the Paris Climate Accord is why Ivanka doesn’t matter. I never ever want to hear that she is a softening influence ever again.

She’s also branded herself as a feminist who’s concerned about women’s issues, but has done little to nothing to address women’s health.
Meanwhile, her father’s pushing a budget that’s awful for women and attacks reproductive rights.
It’s no wonder a recent Cosmopolitan poll showed just 21 percent of young women view Trump favorably.
Trump also recently tweeted about Pride Month in an attempt to portray herself as a champion of the LBGTQ community, and it infuriated people.
The Trump administration isn’t recognizing June as Pride Month, so it almost felt like she was trolling America with this tweet.

I am proud to support my LGBTQ friends and the LGBTQ Americans who have made immense contributions to our society and economy.

People are clearly getting sick and tired of Ivanka.
It doesn’t matter what Trump says or what “sources” or someone “close” to her leak to the press about the various ways she supposedly defies her father. By working in the Trump administration it’s safe to say the vast majority of progressives will never see her as an ally.

I never, ever want hear from anonymous sources again about Ivanka Trump’s “moderating” role in this Administration. Useless prop.

In short, Ivanka Trump will always be viewed as complicit in whatever her father does during his time in the White House, and an US Weekly cover story definitely won’t change that.
