"After enraging the so-called alt-right, white supremacists trolls who make up a significant portion of his fan base earlier this week, President Donald Trump is now facing another angry sect of supporters — right-wing commentators who insist his daughter and top White House aide Ivanka is actually “a lot like Hillary Clinton.”
Ivanka Trump is “becoming like Hillary Clinton in the worst ways,” former Ted Cruz aide and conservative commentator Amanda Carpenter said on CNN Tuesday. Speaking of the audibles boos the first daughter elicited when speaking to a women’s summit in Germany, Carpenter said: “she’s sort of becoming increasingly unlikeable.”
Carpenter clearly had her ear to the growing drumbeat against Ivanka emitted from some of the most influential players in conservative media in recent days. Interestingly enough, however, none of Ivanka’s detractors in conservative media have complained about her ethically questionable role in the White House or her proposed foundation — just her ideological influence on her father.
“Ivanka Trump’s policies are sounding a lot like Hillary Clinton, and we didn’t want Clinton in the White House,” Alex Jones wrote on his Infowars site this week. “We didn’t elect her. And she’s over in Germany with Merkel, that opened the borders up for all the Islamisists … and she says for women we should let refugees in and that her dad’s wrong and she wants him to change his mind,” Jones said in a video posted online Thursday."
