Viewers were able to see host Margaret Brennan ask a series of questions of the fashion designer-daughter of President Donald Trump who took a job in the White House despite her lack of experience in public policy, politics or anything remotely having to do with serving the American public.
Twitter commenters were quick to pan the performance of the president’s oldest daughter — as well as CBS for conducting what person called a public relations ploy to “normalize” Ivanka.
You can read a sampling below:
She basically said NOTHING! It was all just PR BS.

Shame on @FaceTheNation

CBS should be ashamed to normalize the nepotism and corruption of this administration.

Nah. It looks like the whole interview was pure pap and pandering.

Once a bastion of Sunday news shows, you’ve now become a laughingstock pushing tabloid fodder.

Ivanka never belonged in the WH because she didn’t earn a place there. Her inane remarks are irritating and vapid.

Where are the tough questions?

Please stop legitimizing her by pretending she has anything important to say.

The background hummmm Ivanka’s nose jobs cause her to make when speaking is the calibration for drone engines. #teamtrump

Did she talk about purses?

stop putting her on the air. she’s not an elected official. no one elected her. we don’t care what she has to say.

Why is this program amplifying this unqualified grifter? We all know they plan to run her at Trump 2.0 and letting her take credit for others work is key to that. She is there to make $, period.

Critics of sweeping policy changes always make one huge mistake: Robert Reich
In last Wednesday night’s Democratic debate, former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg charged that Senator Bernie Sanders’ policy proposals would cost $50 trillion. Holy Indiana.
Larry Summers, formerly chief White House economic advisor for Barack Obama, puts the price tag at $60 trillion. “We are in a kind of new era of radical proposal,” he told CNN.
Bernie Sanders campaign accepts apology from MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews: ‘We got to get past it’
MSNBC anchor Chris Matthews on Monday apologized to the Bernie Sanders campaign after comparing his dominance in the first three states of the 2020 presidential nomination to the fall of France to the Nazis in World War II.
Sanders senior advisor Chuck Rocha was asked on Fox News for response.
"Look, we all get hot and say things in the moment, I'm glad Chris apologized," Rocha said. "We got to move on and get past it, I'm glad he said what he had to say, I'm tired of folks on Twitter fighting with each other, it's time to win this election."
‘Breathtaking fiscal hypocrisy’ of the GOP may win Trump reelection: Nobel economist
Donald Trump was blasted for his economic policies by Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman -- who worries it just might work to get the president reelected.
"It may have slipped by you, but last week Donald Trump suggested that he may be about to give U.S. farmers — who have yet to see any benefits from his much-touted trade deal with China — another round of government aid," Krugman wrote in The New York Times. "This would be on top of the billions in farm aid that Trump has already delivered, costing taxpayers several times as much as Barack Obama’s auto bailout — a bailout Republicans fiercely denounced as 'welfare' and 'crony capitalism' at the time."
