A former aide to Sen. Ted Cruz turned political commentator for CNN tore into Ivanka Trump on Tuesday, saying the First Daughter is "becoming like Hillary Clinton in the worst ways."
On a segment of Erin Burnett's "Out Front" show on CNN, Amanda Carpenter panned Ivanka Trump's performance at a conference in Germany and questioned the legitimacy of President Donald Trump's daughter doing anything on behalf of the U.S.
"When I see Ivanka Trump taking on this role, I see her becoming like Hillary Clinton in the worst ways — she's becoming increasingly unlikeable," Carpenter said. "She's trying to get these jobs she's not qualified for based on family connections. And every time … she's asked about President Trump's poor track record toward women, she defends the bad conduct that he's exhibited."
Ivanka Trump took part in a Women's 20 summit in Berlin where she said her twice-divorced father has been a "tremendous champion of supporting families," prompting an audible reaction from the crowd.
"They get the joke — it is a joke that our government is holding Ivanka Trump up as a symbol of female empowerment when she's gotten everything in her life because of her father," Carpenter said.
"They get the joke, we get the joke. They're asking the question we have — 'Why are you here?'
"They're putting foreign leaders in a very uncomfortable position of having to babysit the First Daughter on these national stages. Clearly they don't appreciate it," Carpenter said.
"It's not smart for her to make herself like Hillary Clinton to pretend that she's some international icon for women when on a national stage she defends terrible conduct her father has demonstrated toward women," Carpenter said.
It's the second time in a month that Carpenter has taken after Ivanka Trump. Carpenter on March 21 wrote a column for Cosmopolitan, calling Ivanka's White House role "an insult to working women" and "nepotism."
