‘It’s Called Bullying’: Trump Surrogate Claims Liberal Media is Torturing Ivanka and Jared

The White House roles of President Donald Trump’s daughter and son-in-law have come under intense scrutiny of late, especially with Ivanka Trump’s recent trip to Germany to take part in an international women’s conference. Obviously, with the Trump family members serving as senior advisors in the White House, accusations of nepotism and conflicts of interest have been rife.

Well, according to one Trump associate, the criticism of Ivanka and Jared Kushner is akin to torture and nothing more than bullying by the liberal media.

Erin Elmore, a former Apprentice contestant who bills herself now as a spokesperson for the president, showed up on Fox & Friends this morning to make the case for the First Daughter while slamming the “hypocritical” treatment of Ivanka.

“Let’s face it, to torture Ivanka or her husband is just another example of the liberal media being hypocritical,” Elmore stated.

She added, “Yet, the left continues to attack them. That kind of rhetoric, to be honest, there’s a word for that. It’s called bullying.”

It wasn’t just the media Elmore was interested in calling out as hypocrites.

“What about these feminists that pound their fists that Ivanka is bad for women,” Elmore asked rhetorically. “There only answer for not liking her is really her father. So a man is going to define her? Feminists, that’s what you’re going to say? Again, hypocritical.”

Elmore recently tussled with CNN’s Amanda Carpenter over Ivanka’s role in the White House, stating at that time that very few people buy into the negative narrative about Ivanka.
