Ivanka Trump Takes A Dig At Media 'Echo Chamber' After NYT Op-Ed About Her Father

First daughter Ivanka Trump appears to have taken a leaf out of her father's book, hitting out at the media in the wake of an op-ed in The New York Times titled "I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration."

As numerous pundits commented on the editorial, which suggested, among other things, that people within the administration are working to thwart "Trump's more misguided impulses" and that aides had considered attempting to remove the president under the 25th Amendment, Ivanka appeared to be staying out of the melee.

Rather than commenting on the furor surrounding the column, Ivanka instead tweeted about criminal justice reform following a White House meeting with people including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, who has become an advocate for prison reform, and Ivanka's husband, senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, who has also worked on the topic.

"Great working session today at the White House on ways to improve the clemency process with policy leaders and criminal justice reform advocates," the first daughter wrote, prompting ABC anchor Jory Rand to question whether she was operating in a "parallel universe."

Rand shared her tweet and commented, "Meanwhile, in another universe..." This elicited a response from the first daughter, who took a swipe at the press over which issues were and were not important.

"Yes...we continue to work to better the lives of every American, each and every day, regardless of what others in the echo chamber deem to be the more "important" narrative," Ivanka wrote in response to Rand's tweet.

Although Ivanka did not comment on the column about her father, he sent several tweets that appeared to refer to the op-ed.

"Treason?" Trump wrote in one message sent on Wednesday night, following up with a direct attack on the newspaper.

"Does the so-called "Senior Administration Official" really exist, or is it just the Failing New York Times with another phony source? If the GUTLESS anonymous person does indeed exist, the Times must, for National Security purposes, turn him/her over to government at once!" he said.

Trump later slammed the official in comments from the White House.
