MSNBC Anchor Criticizes Ivanka Trump For 'Quietly' Advocating For Gun Reform

Ivanka Trump is the First Daughter, both for President Donald Trump and as a title now that her father is President.

She also acts as a White House adviser along with her husband Jared Kushner.


Beyond that, people are a little confused about what she does aside from inserting herself into diplomatic situations where she seems unwelcome.

If you missed that story from the G20 Summit, here's the scoop.

And the memes.

Ivanka has been called complicit then claimed she didn't know what the word means.

complicit: (adj) involved with others in an illegal activity or wrongdoing through action or inaction

She's also been called feckless.

feckless: (adj) lacking initiative or strength of character; irresponsible; useless; incompetent; inept

Giphy

But according to Ivanka Trump she "quietly works behind the scenes."



Currently—according to information given to news agencies—she's quietly working on gun control.


However MSNBC's Stephanie Ruhle called BS on all the quiet work Ivanka has done.

Ruhle was not alone in her assessment of Ivanka Trump's effectiveness.

CNN's chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin stated on The Situation Room:

"As far as I could tell, Ivanka Trump has led an accomplishment-free existence at the White House."
"The mythology that followed Ivanka Trump and her husband from New York, that they're really the moderates, they're really not racist, they really believe in gay rights—all of that has proven to be untrue."

Ouch.

Maybe it is time to speak up, because no one can seem to hear her quiet work.

Or see her invisible results.
