A new article on first daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kusher purportedly reveals what elites in Washington, D.C., really think of them. Some West Wing advisers reportedly call Ivanka "princess royal."
The article appears in the October issue of Vanity Fair, reports Inquisitr.
The article relies on numerous anonymous sources ranging from West Wing advisers to personal friends of the couple. Kushner and Ivanka are among President Donald Trump's top advisers.
One former adviser to Trump spoke of the moment Ivanka was allowed to sit in her father's place at the G-20 Summit in Germany. Her taking the seat was widely criticized on social media, reports The Washington Post.
"Excuse me," said the former adviser. "This is not a royal family, and she's not the princess royal."
Another source, described as a "well-connected strategist in New York," predicts that Ivanka and Kushner will leave Washington at the end of the 2018 school year.
Another source doubted they are planning that far ahead.
An "influential Republican donor" thinks they will move back to New York when they can no longer see themselves working in the Trump administration.
"When they decide it's more important to protect their own and their children's reputations than it is to defend their indefensible father's, that's a sign the end is near," said the donor.
Another source provided a gossipy anecdote about Kushner, who allegedly responded to a question from former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus with the statement: "What the f**k do you care?"
A former adviser noted that Ivanka can be "cold" to White House staffers when in the president's presence, insinuating she tries to prove her toughness to her father.
One former White House staffer is reportedly of the opinion that Washington would be better off without Ivanka and Kushner.
"There's nothing more obstructive and distracting and unhelpful than to have a bunch of stupid apolitical family members calling all the shots," the former staffer remarked.
Another Washington veteran expressed dismay at how the couple lack "self-awareness," and "do not grasp their essential irrelevance" because "they think they are special."
Despite her official role as an adviser, Ivanka told an interviewer on Fox News show "Fox & Friends" that she tries not to get involved in politics.
"I have heard the concerns some have with my advising the president in my personal capacity while voluntarily complying with all ethics rules, and I will instead serve as an unpaid employee in the White House Office, subject to all of the same rules as other federal employees," she said. "Throughout this process I have been working closely and in good faith with the White House counsel and my personal counsel to address the unprecedented nature of my role."
