Donald Trump, Jr. Defends Sister Ivanka Pulling a ‘McSally’ on CNN’s Acosta

First Daughter Ivanka Trump snubbed CNN’s Jim Acosta when he chased after her asking for a comment on her father’s impeachment trial on Tuesday – and when Acosta called her out, her brother, Donald Trump, Jr., sprang to her defense.

“Why should she give a comment to one of the most dishonest reporters in all of Washington?” the president’s son tweeted, responding to CNN Chief White House Correspondent Acosta’s retweet of video of his encounter with Ivanka at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland posted by CNN Producer Matt Hoyer:

@Acosta: “Ivanka Trump declines to comment to @CNN on her father’s impeachment trial as it gets underway. #WEF2020

@DonaldTrumpJr: “Why should she give a comment to one of the most dishonest reporters in all of Washington???”

Ivanka’s snub of CNN follows last week’s brushoff by Sen. Martha McSally (R-Ariz.), who made headlines by refusing to answer a question by CNN Senior Correspondent Manu Raju, telling him, “You’re a liberal hack; I’m not talking to you.”

Unlike McSally, however, Ivanka Trump refused to engage CNN – she just kept walking and silently ignored Acosta’s badgering.
