Ivanka Trump broke ranks with her father, finally condemning President Trump’s child seperation policy.
Is this a step forward or a last-chance grab at saving her reputation?
Jason Miller and Angela Rye debated the subject on CNN on Thursday,
“She has an obligation to not only tell her father the truth but also her boss, the man who’s serving as commander-in-chief. Because you had a few sleepless nights, because it troubled your spirit and your heart and you did not take the necessary actions to stop him in his tracks,” Rye said. “She now has an obligation to solve what’s happened.”
Miller defended Ivanka Trump.
“Ivanka weighed in on the immigration front,” he said. “She gave what I thought was a very strong answer for Ivanka, a much stronger answer than I would have thought, saying it’s wrong so many of these kids are being brought in through coyotes and traffickers.”
Things then became heated as Rye said she doesn’t consider Trump to be her president and Miller exploded in response.
“Not my President?” Miller said. “He’s our President, Angela.”
“Not mine, not mine! I will never claim a bigot, ever, ever,” she said in response.
“What, are you a Canadian?” Miller asked condescendingly.
“Come on, dude,” Rye said in response.

Dem lawmaker encourages acting-DNI to ignore White House and deliver the whistleblower report directly to Congress
Appearing on CNN on Friday morning to discuss an alarming whistleblower report on Donald Trump's actions that the president's administration is withholding from Congress, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) encouraged the acting Director of National Intelligence to hand the report over and ignore the administration.
Speaking with CNN host Jim Sciutto, Swalwell made a direct appeal to acting-DNI head Joseph Maguire.
"This is an opportunity for Republicans and Democrats to unite and say, we don't want this in our democracy," Swalwell explained. "You know, that's why I wrote the Protecting Our Democracy Act, to, you know, have a bipartisan commission look at this."
WATCH: Trump’s long history of spilling America’s secrets to foreign leaders catalogued by CNN’s Avlon
President Donald Trump this week claimed that would never be stupid enough to say something inappropriate to foreign officials when he knew that all of his calls were being monitored.
However, CNN's John Avlon on Friday went down the president's long history of making inappropriate comments to foreign leaders, including times when he spilled important intelligence secrets.
Avlon began by noting that Trump has repeatedly cast aspersions on the intelligence community, including when he infamously said that he didn't believe Russia tried to help him win the 2016 election despite multiple intelligence assessments showing just that.
Dem lawmaker Speier bluntly calls out Trump for using taxpayer money for his Ukraine Biden oppo research
Appearing on CNN's "New Day," Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) ripped into President Donald Trump over the whistleblower report that seems to indicate the president was holding back aid to the Ukraine in return for dirt on former Vice President Joe Biden.
Speaking with hosts John Berman and Alisyn Camerota, the California Democrat said she learned very little in a private meeting on the explosive whistleblower report on Thursday, before talk turned to Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani's meltdown and confession on CNN that he had been pressuring officials in the Ukraine over Biden.
"What we know is zero," Speier said. "So if, in fact, what is being reported is true, that means the president of the United States is using taxpayer money to try and have opposition research for his political campaign determined by how much money he gives to a foreign country and that is reprehensible."
