From the second that Donald Trump’s tiny little feet hit the 2016 presidential campaign running, he’s been bitching and screaming about Hillary Clinton’s emails. Even two and a half years later, and Vladimir Putin helped him weasel his way into the presidency, and Clinton is not a challenger of his in any way, Trump is still spouting off about it.
Which is why it’s a little extra delicious that his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner essentially did the same damn thing.
In case you somehow weren’t aware, both of the Trump advisors have been caught red-handed using private email and WhatsApp accounts to conduct government business on without keeping a single transcript or paper trail.
And evidently, Donnie was pretty mad about it.
According to a report from The Atlantic, Trump’s feathers were so ruffled over the ordeal, in fact, that he had himself quite the hissy fit on the pair in the Oval Office.
Former White House aide Cliff Sims told The Atlantic that Donald once considered his daughter Ivanka to be his most prized proxy.
“For Trump, everything comes back to optics,” Sims stated. “She is the archetype of what he wants — the most beautiful face, the most buttoned-up message, everything just exactly the way it should be.”
But after they got themselves caught in the same predicament that he’s religiously blasted Hillary for, he’s just not so fond of them anymore.
According to Atlantic writer McKay Coppins, the news of Jared’s inappropriate WhatsApp use “prompted a presidential meltdown in the Oval Office.”
“How could he be so stupid?” one White House official claims Trump raged. “That’s what Hillary did!”
Of course, as soon as news of the WhatsApp debacle broke, Hillary did not miss a chance to give her own two cents on the situation, calling their criticism of her similar transgressions “the height of hypocrisy.”
After the Oval Office uproar, Trump reportedly began telling those closest to him that “Jared hasn’t been so good for me.” Coppins also claims that Trump has been quite butthurt over the fact that his daughter didn’t instead marry New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady when she had the chance.
She can’t choose who she loves, Donnie!
