CBS’ Gayle King had Ivanka on for an early morning interview, and it was clear from the start that the host was trying to ridicule and embarrass Ivanka for the role she plays in her father’s cabinet. However, Ivanka is no thin-skinned snowflake: she answered King back immediately, standing up for herself, and shocking the audience.
“If being complicit is wanting to, is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact then I’m complicit. I don’t know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing,” Ivanka said.
Ivanka adds: “So I hope to make a positive impact. I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but you know, I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.”
Most viewers loved hearing Ivanka’s answer, especially after this weekend when Ivanka’s “complicit” comment made viral headlines.
