A "Morning Joe" panel took aim at Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, who helped bring in short-lived communications chief Anthony Scaramucci and escaped blame for other White House scandals and failures.


Republican consultant Elise Jordan flagged a tweet Monday by the president's daughter, who said she was excited to work "alongside" new chief of staff John Kelly.

"I was really disgusted by Ivanka's tweet (Monday) saying she looked forward to working alongside Gen. Kelly," Jordan said. "Alongside? Respect the chain of command in the White House. Respect someone who served half a century in the military -- maybe you could learn something."

Jordan, a former Bush White House and State Department aide who served as foreign policy adviser to Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), said Ivanka Trump and her husband were trying to have it both ways.

"I quite frankly have really tired of the Jared and Ivanka spin machine that is constantly trying to portray them as somehow all-powerful yet powerless," Jordan said. "They have so much control, yet they have no control -- can't control anything from this White House."
