It has long been said that there’s something wrong with Donald Trump. And that’s especially true as it relates to his daughter, Ivanka, who serves as a top adviser to her father, along with her husband, Jared Kushner.
So it wasn’t exactly a surprise when the president made a comment a couple of days ago that rang true with a former staffer who worked closely with Trump on his NBC reality show, “The Apprentice.”
Specifically, while discussing coronavirus at one of his daily press conferences, Trump was attempting to pat himself on the back for his administration’s response to the medical crisis, which has been described by many as halfhearted and downright pathetic:
Trump says that if he’d heeded advice to just “ride” the virus and not do anything — “Just ride it. Ride it like a cowboy. Ride that sucker right through” — there could’ve been 2.2 million deaths.

As is, we’re only looking at 225,000 dead Americans. Hooray! Let’s have a party and celebrate, Trump seems to be saying.
That comment from the president prompted the memory of Noel Casler, a former “Apprentice” staffer who now does stand-up comedy for a living and regularly reveals all sorts of embarrassing details about the Donald Trump he once worked for. Casler posted this on Twitter, which we all know is Trump’s favorite social media platform:
That was the first time I’ve heard Trump say “ride it like a cowboy” without Ivanka on his lap. @realDonaldTrump

Reaction to that information from Casler drew the kind of reaction you’d expect:
I’m pretty sure she knows what “ride it like a cowboy” means. 😩 pic.twitter.com/pcXYD7bmTK

Yes, there’s something wrong with Donald Trump, but can’t the same be said for Ivanka, too? The two of them have a weird vibe going on, and it’s just not kosher at all.
