Even well before Donald Trump managed to become President of the United States, many of us have side-eyed the relationship he “enjoys” with his eldest daughter, Ivanka.
The body language that goes on between the pair is enough in itself to make you squirm. And then you have the blatant indicators that something sketchy is going on there — like Donald’s apparent admission (in the form of a distasteful “joke”) that he would, in fact, sleep with Ivanka were she not his own daughter, and the quips from the other Trump children, namely Junior, about Ivanka being their father’s favorite child.
Frankly, the whole dynamic between the two just makes me wildly uncomfortable.
And now, it’s only gotten worse as one former Trump administration official has spilled the tea regarding the disgraced ex-president’s views on women in general, in comparison to the way he views his own eldest daughter.
Be warned; it will make your skin crawl.

Former Trump administration national security official and Russia advisor Fiona Hill recently sat for an interview with The Independent, in which she claimed the one-term, twice-impeached former guy views women in general as non-entities.
Dr. Hill covers the numerous instances of blatant sexism she witnessed from Donald Trump in her new book, There Is Nothing for You Here: Finding Opportunity in the Twenty-First Century.
In her tell-all, she specifically writes of the way former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and others often referred to her as “the Russia Bitch.”
“I mean, there are people like Kellyanne Conway and others who had a big influence on him [Trump], because obviously they ran his campaign and he admired her,” Hill says.
“But I think for women who he didn’t know, women who didn’t appear to be loyal, women who didn’t come from Fox News or one of the other places that he used as his litmus test for who people were, as far as they were concerned, they were non-entities,” she goes on to add. “And in my experience, I mean, he looked at most women as secretaries, members of the staff.”
She also tells of her first time meeting then-President Trump. Hill says she wore sneakers to the meeting because she accidentally left her work shoes n the Washington Metro. She notes that Donald hardly paid any mind to her or her shoes. However, when Donald’s eldest daughter showed up and took a seat beside her, Ivanka allegedly balked at Hill’s sneakers.
“[She] wafted into the room wearing an elaborately lacy two-piece white outfit and alarmingly high stiletto heels as if she were off to a gala. Ivanka sat down right beside me, immediately taking in my black sneakers, which I had failed to conceal under the chair, and flashing me a look of surprise. I was busted,” the former Trump official writes in her book.
She goes on to talk about the way Trump disparaged, criticized, and attacked women in positions of power, such as United Kingdom Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.
“I mean, he was fairly disparaging of Theresa May after she basically failed to get a resounding majority,” Hill explains.
He also pulled back on his praises for Chancellor Merkel and took to publicly degrading and criticizing her for welcoming Syrian refugees into her country.
“When he thought that people were winners, so for example, Chancellor Merkel really dominated the European political scene, but then she, like Theresa May, obviously had to go through various electoral tests, and when their majorities dropped, he would then treat them differently.”
“He basically associated women generally with weakness. He was somewhat repelled by them.”
On the flip side of that coin, Hill explains that the now-ex-President seemingly admired Queen Elizabeth II for her regality, as well as CIA Director Gina Haspel and the infamous Kellyanne Conway.
However, when it came down to it, Hill says that Trump’s ideal woman was truly none other than his own daughter, Ivanka.
“The high glamor, the fact that his view, everybody admired and adored her. He was always talking about this, so Ivanka Trump was a reflection of self,” Dr. Hill describes. “Other women, he was just much less interested in, and certainly didn’t think that they had something to tell him.”
“His ideal woman was Ivanka Trump,” Hill reveals, “because he saw Ivanka Trump as his female alter ego.”
In case you can’t tell, this just is not normal between a father and daughter. Rather, it’s emotional incest to the absolute extreme.
