[Editor’s note: As Jim Dean says ‘you just can’t make this stuff up’. Why has Trump given his daughter an office in the White House and is seeking to give her security clearance? What exactly are her qualifications for a government role?
We have been aware for a long time that there is something very wrong, very disturbing in fact, about the relationship between Donald and Ivanka. Just take look at the pictures of the two together, a small selection of which I have included here, there is a very disturbing element to them, a sexual aspect visible in inappropriate physical contact, kissing, body language, they appear more like lovers than father and daughter.
It’s not just us, a great many people have noticed this, such as this US magazine article from last July which analysed the interactions between Donald Trump, his wife Melania and daughter Ivanka at the Republican National Convention on Thursday, July 21, after he finished his speech accepting the Republican presidential nomination.
Body language expert Patti Wood who authored Snap: Making the Most of First Impressions, Body Language and Charisma gave the following analysis of Trump’s interaction with his wife, Melania:
“That was not even a real hug. He held both her arms, cupping his hands around her forearms to keep her at a certain distance from him. She also didn’t go in close. “There was no heart-to-heart contact. There was no pelvis-to-pelvis contact. That was really odd. There was no real warmth.”
When it comes to Donald’s hug with Ivanka, who introduced the real-estate tycoon turned politician at Thursday night’s gathering, Wood tells Us that his hand placement was inappropriate. As viewers witnessed, the business mogul showed his appreciation for his daughter’s glowing statements by kissing her cheeks and then placing his hands on her lower hips.
“He patted her in a sexually dismissive way. That repetitive pat with open hands on that location is usually a set of body language cues to say, ‘The sex with you, it was good,’ or, ‘That was fun sexual play,’” Wood says. “I want to be clear that is not even a pat you would give to a child under the age of 5. You would pat them higher up on the back.”
Since Donald’s strange hugs with his wife and daughter (whom he shares with ex-wife Ivana Trump) aired on national television, many have taken to social media to share their opinions about the physical contact.
“Daddy Donald was more (inappropriately) affectionate to Ivanka than to Melania,” one viewer tweeted, while another sniped, “Donald grabs Ivanka’s ass gave [Melania a] weird friend zone hug.”
We leave it to the reader to make their own mind up about this scenario, but we are sure you will agree with us that it is a very strange relationship for a father and daughter and bears all the hallmarks of something very disturbing, very wrong, very wrong indeed….
Let’s leave the final words on this to Donald Trump himself, here are a few of the more disturbing utterances the orange creep has made about his daughter Ivanka:
On The Howard Stern Show, 2003, Donald Trump bragged about his then-22-year-old daughter’s body, saying:
“You know who’s one of the great beauties of the world, according to everybody? And I helped create her. Ivanka.
“My daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body. She made a lot money as a model—a tremendous amount.”
New York magazine interview, December 2004
“Let me tell you one thing: Ivanka is a great, great beauty. Every guy in the country wants to go out with my daughter. But she’s got a boyfriend.”
On The Howard Stern Show, 2004
Mr Trump replies in the affirmative when host Howard Stern asks him if he can call Ivanka “a piece of ass”.
Trump: “My daughter is beautiful, Ivanka.”
Stern: “By the way, your daughter…”
Trump: “ – she’s beautiful”
Stern: “Can I say this? A piece of ass.”
On The View, 2006
Donald and Ivanka appeared together on The View while promoting Season Three of The Apprentice, in which Mr Trump’s children featured for the first time as his advisors.
When asked how he would react if Ivanka, a former teen model, posed for Playboy, Trump replied, “It would be really disappointing — not really — but it would depend on what’s inside the magazine.”
He added: “I don’t think Ivanka would do that, although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
“Isn’t that terrible? How terrible? Is that terrible?”
On The Howard Stern Show, October 2006
Stern remarks that Ivanka “looks more voluptuous than ever”, and asked if she has received breast implants. Trump engages in the discussion, saying she has not.
“She’s actually always been very voluptuous,” Trump responds. “She’s tall, she’s almost 6 feet tall and she’s been, she’s an amazing beauty.”
Rolling Stone interview, September 2015
“After I met Ivanka and praised her to her father, he said, ‘Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father . . .’”
On the Dr Oz show, September 2016
Trump was discussing long-awaited details about his health, and was joined on stage for the pre-record by Ivanka. After they kissed, the host commented: “It’s nice to see a dad kiss his daughter.”
According to several studio witnesses, Mr Trump replied that he kisses Ivanka “with every chance [he] gets”. The comment was apparently edited out of the final cut of the show when it went to air.

Ivanka Trump scores West Wing office, government security clearances
Ivanka Trump, the Jewish daughter of President Donald Trump, reportedly is working out of a West Wing office and is in the process of receiving a government security clearance.
Ivanka Trump’s office is on the second floor, next to senior adviser Dina Powell, who was promoted recently to a position on the National Security Council, Politico first reported Monday evening. Ivanka Trump also is set to receive government-issued communications devices this week.
Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, a senior adviser to the president, moved their family to Washington, D.C., when the president took office.
Though Trump does not have an official title and will not draw a salary, she will follow the ethics rules that apply to government employees, Jamie Gorelick, an attorney and ethics adviser for the first daughter, told The Associated Press.
While Trump continues to own her own lifestyle company, which sells clothing, shoes and jewelry, she has turned daily management to the company president and has set up a trust to provide further oversight. She also has barred the business from using her image in advertising to promote the products.
“I will continue to offer my father my candid advice and counsel, as I have for my entire life,” Trump said in a statement while acknowledging that “there is no modern precedent for an adult child of the president.”
Trump had said during the transition that she would not play a formal role in the administration when she moved to Washington. She also said, however, that she would continue to fight for women’s issues, including maternity leave and child care.
On Friday, she participated in a meeting of the president and German Chancellor Angela Merkel with the CEOs of U.S. and German companies to discuss workplace development, sitting beside Merkel during the discussion.
