Ivanka Trump tries to stay out of politics

Oh lordy the disconnect, the obliviousness, the lost up a tree with no map itude.

Climate change, with women’s rights, is part of Ivanka Trump’s White House brief.

“We’re two different human beings,” she continued. “I think it’s normal to not have 100% aligned viewpoints on every issue. I don’t think anyone operates like that with a parent, or within the context of an administration.
