“The press seems to think it’s ironic that I, born of great privilege, think people want to work for what they are given. As if being Donald Trump’s daughter isn’t the hardest job in the world.” – Ivanka Trump, speaking last night at the annual Gridiron Dinner, which features roasts of DC figures and political comedy skits.
More from the Associated Press:
Trump skipped the dinner his first year in office but attended last year, giving a half-hour speech with plenty of one-liners. His daughter and senior adviser, Ivanka Trump, told the audience that he asked her to step in for him.
“This isn’t a joke,” she said. In offering her father’s regrets for not attending, she said, “The opportunity to poke fun at the media is not something he passes up lightly.” For her dad, she said, “every day is a gridiron dinner.”
