Ivana Trump said in an interview over the weekend that daughter-in-law Vanessa Trump will have an impossible time finding a husband because she has five children. Her son, however, will have a very easy time because he’s handsome.
The irony was not lost on the hosts of “The View,” who noted Tuesday that Ivana went through exactly the same thing, divorcing a Trump while she had three children.
“Aren’t they also his children?” Whoopi Goldberg wondered.
Joy Behar called the Trumps nothing more than “a family of vipers” in their Vanessa attacks. “First Vanessa is humiliated in public because he has a girlfriend or something, and then the mother-in-law slams her?”
Co-host Sara Haines called it the double standard for women than for men.
“I was surprised that she said that about her daughter-in-law, the mother of her grandchildren,” Sunny Hostin said. “She’s saying, he’ll find somebody–”
“Yeah, in jail,” Behar quipped. “Hurry up, girls! The feds are going to get him!”
Meghan McCain noted that Vanessa is also a beautiful person, who is successful in her own right as well as being a mother.
“I think it goes into sort of cultural stereotypes about when women have kids we’re either going to be less successful, less desirable, less ambitious,” she continued. “There’s a lot of old things held over from the past. For me I would be so hurt if I had five children which we just talked about I don’t know if I’m going to handle having one and my mother-in-law was like, that’s your baggage you have to deal with.”
Hostin could not understand why the children’s own grandmother would say something like that.
“She had three and certainly got married again and had all kinds of stuff,” said Goldberg. “So, you know, stop being a hater, honey. Stop. That’s the mother of your grandchildren. Why would you do that? As opposed to saying, you know, ‘I went through this and here’s how you can get through it.'”
McCain noted that there was once a social decorum that speaking ill of your family or your ex in public was tacky. She called it “beyond what politics normally is.”
That could easily be the tagline of the entire Trump family’s behavior.

Trump’s ‘craziness’ will drive Mexico to find other sources of soybeans — permanently hurting US farmers: Ex-diplomat
President Donald Trump believes he has worked out a killer trade deal with Mexico and Canada -- but one former Mexican diplomat tells Storm Lake Times columnist Art Cullen that the damage done to the relationship between the countries will have lasting ramifications for years to come.
Jorge Guajardo, who served for six years as Mexico's ambassador to China, recently explained to Cullen that Trump's erratic behavior has shown his country that it must look for other major trading partners so it doesn't run the risk of getting burned by the United States again.
Yale psychiatrist: Trump using racism as a coping mechanism as his mental state rapidly deteriorates
On Wednesday, President Donald Trump continued to attack the young congresswomen of color nicknamed "The Squad," after he was criticized for saying the women should go back to their own countries, even though all four are U.S. citizens. Now, he's doubling down.
On Twitter Wednesday he called the women "left-wing cranks." He added that they were free to leave if they don't like America.
Raw Story spoke with Dr. Bandy X. Lee about the President's racist tirades against Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) and Ayanna Pressley (D-ILL).
Lee is a forensic psychiatrist and an expert on violence at Yale School of Medicine. She helped launch a public health approach to global violence prevention as a consultant to the World Health Organization and other United Nations bodies since 2002. She is author of the textbook, “Violence: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Causes, Consequences, and Cures,” president of the World Mental Health Coalition, and editor of the New York Times bestseller, “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump: 37 Psychiatrists and Mental Health Experts Assess a President.”
This word is the single biggest tipoff that Trump is lying
President Donald Trump exhibits a verbal tic that gives away some of his biggest whoppers.
The president tells demonstrable lies on a daily basis, but it's a "flashing red light" that he's lying when he recounts someone calling him "sir," according to CNN fact-checker Daniel Dale.
"Trump has told false 'sir' stories on all manner of subjects: health care, the Middle East, the courts, unions and -- just last week -- both tariffs and social media," Dale wrote. "But no genre of Trump story is more reliably sir-heavy than his collection of suspiciously similar tales about macho men breaking into tears of gratitude in his presence."
