Yeah, well, it’s just getting started. The knives have been out for Donald Trump since the Wednesday morning in November he declared victory. Democrats don’t accept his election was legitimate, they hate his policies, they hate him personally, and they will do everything they can to undermine the will of the people as expressed by their choice of Trump to be president.
That said, Obama certainly incurred plenty of vicious attacks. But there was never this concerted effort by the Washington establishment to undermine him and ultimately oust him that you see with President Trump. They opposed Obama on policy grounds, and many of the personal attacks in Washington were waged by Obama and his aides, who consistently questioned the motives and morality of Republicans.
Ivanka appeared on Fox News Monday morning. She said:
There is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. I was not expecting the intensity of this experience. But this isn’t supposed to be easy. My father and this administration intends to be transformative, and we want to do big, bold things. And we’re looking to change the status quo. I think some of the distractions and some of the ferocity — I was a little blindsided by it on a personal level. But, for me I’m trying to keep my head, down, not listen to the noise, and just work really hard to make a positive impact on the lives of many people.
I’m glad to see her talking about changing the status quo. Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner are often suspected of not being fully signed on to the president’s campaign promise to turn Washington on its head.
