Ivanka Just Claimed Her Father Wants to Hear From People Who 'Disagree With Him' and Yeah, It Did Not Go Well
If a conservative media outlet, such as Fox News, doesn't cover him favorably enough or if their poll numbers indicate circumstances at odds with the President's delusions, he encourages his supporters to watch somewhere else.
Despite Americans' overwhelming need for further pandemic relief, the President admitted that he hasn't spoken to Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) in months and has no intention to, citing baseless claims of her "mental problems."
So people were confused when the President's eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, praised him for surrounding himself with those who don't agree with him.

During a discussion with Trump campaign spokeswoman Mercedes Schlapp, Ivanka Trump said:
"Whether they're yes-men or they just all agree with you, he's never believed in that. He actually wants to hear from people who vehemently disagree with him."
People found the assertion laughable.

Some pointed out that even as Ivanka Trump was saying this, Schlapp was eagerly nodding along.
That's why Mercedes in nodding and saying yes before Ivanka gets the words out.
