We’ve heard a lot from Donald Trump about the bizarre view he has of his own daughter, but we’ve not often heard Ivanka share how she feels about her father’s creepy comments.
But a recently uncovered quote reveals that Ivanka may not be as happy-go-lucky as she seems when it comes to her father’s uncomfortable view of her.
In 2006, Ivanka was quoted in the Chicago Tribune saying that if Trump weren’t her father, she would treat him like any sexually-assaulting man on the street.
Searching old cuts. Odd thing. Why does the world recall Trump saying “if she wasn’t my daughter, I’d be dating her” but not Ivanka’s reply? pic.twitter.com/8MeAgkEICb

The comment was made some time after Donald Trump humiliated his daughter by suggesting during an appearance on the view that if they weren’t related, the two would be dating. Considering the age of some of Trump’s past conquests, this wouldn’t be unrealistic.
Of course, we don’t know the context of this quote and you can be sure that the Trump team will be eager to say that she was just palling around with her creepy, incestuous dad!
But the possible undertone of this relationship is one that many are interested in discovering. Is Ivanka happy to have her father in her life? Or is she merely putting on a show to keep her father happy and stay in the Trump billionaire’s good graces?
