Ivanka Trump Julia Ioffe

An incorrect rumor shared by a Politico.com reporter in a disrespectful Tweet resulted in the reporter’s termination.

It all started when CNN’s Lisa Mirando tweeted: “Via @SaraMurray: Ivanka Trump to get office in same space reserved for First Lady in WH; Ivanka’s title still TBD, per transition source”.

Trump’s transition team denied the rumor, saying, “This is false. No decisions regarding Ivanka’s involvement have been made”.

But Politico reporter Julia Ioffe, pictured right, must not have received the memo.

She tweeted: “Either Trump is f**king his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?”

The shocking tweet was published by the Daily Caller in a post that was picked up by other conservative blogs.

By Wednesday evening, Ioffe was fired.

Politico released a statement saying Ioffe’s “Tweet was a violation of the news site’s standards.”.

Ioffe was already transitioning out of Politico.com after she was hired by The Atlantic as their foreign policy and U.S. politics reporter.

She was set to start that job in January, but she had hoped to continue collecting paychecks from Politico.com until then.

There is no word on whether The Atlantic has a code of conduct policy in place, or if their high standards extends to their writers.

    She tweeted: “Either Trump is f**king his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?”
    Trump said that if Ivanka weren’t his daughter he would date her.
    Trump agreed with Howard Stern when Stern called Ivanka a hot piece of a$$.
    But the same people who elected Grab ’em by the Puzzy are being politically correct?
    Ha,ha,ha!!

  • hi-liter

    Cant believe anything that comes from Trump’s transition team. Just saw on the news last night in an interview where Trump said he wanted all 3 of his funny looking kids to have WH positions and help him make decisions. He said that Ivanka’s husband will be good at “peace in the middle east.” WTF? Take away his money and you have a fuukin idiot.

  • puppylove

    You have to learn when to keep your thoughts to yourself. Instead of tweeting she shpuld have spent time researching if it was true.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Why should she. Trump don’t research anything about anyone and says any damn thing. SO why can’t she? Tuh

  • nucynu25

    Trump cant even be bothered to be briefed daily on the country ..

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Meh. She can go block. Or write editorials. Matter of fact she needs to be sitting in front of a computer right now capitalizing off of this fame.

    I can’t wait for 2020. Tis all.

  • puppylove

    I know, I know, but we have to hold journalist to a higher standard. Denzel went smooth off over a fake story about him.

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    In news that I don’t care nothing about…

  • puppylove

    Doesn’t believe the CIA but does trust the FBI.

  • Blue

    Unfortunately, the fake news is less scary than whats really going on with them.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    Trump nem aside, If she wrote this she should have been fired. Of course the FLOTUS and the first daughters have been called every kinda primate known to man and nothing happens, but yea.

  • Araminta Glissade Chaines

    True

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Sandra, how come we did not get a story about Gilbert?

  • puppylove

    Just wanna say I love yalll before the trolls show up.

  • sherri2016

    We have to hold our Presidents to an even higher standard

  • Jen_no_juice

    What that fool do now?

  • iWasteTime

    Politico can fire a person for tweeting with misleading or flat out incorrect information, why can’t we fire the PE for the same?

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    This right here though.

  • nucynu25

    Idiotic

  • puppylove

    Too late

  • Cheese eggs

    Just a story to distract the masses. A better question would be what are his children doing sitting in on white house meetings? How much does trump owe China? Stay woke

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    Won another family court case. the judge told Laura that the 44k she used to get in support is no more. smh. She has not won a case yet. And they done had 42 of them. (like actually 42 court cases) smdh.

  • iWasteTime

    All because Trump said it wasn’t true, doesn’t mean that it’s not. Like him not taking the daily briefings, turned out to be true, Melinia not moving to DC, Turned out to be true, Russia not hacking for him, turns out … true

  • MissyJ

    Ioono bout y’all but ion curr

  • MissHarlem

    First off idgaf about this sham of a family. What I am annoyed at is the insane inconsiderate thinking of them at trump towers causing more traffic in an already overcrowded city. More tax dollars etc. That’s more pressing fck this story she’s white and won’t miss a check behind her comments and I’m not loosing sleep.

  • Jen_no_juice

    Damn. She must REALLY be trifling. They don’t usually go against the mother this much

  • Keya #AndYouWillDeal

    That’s what I am saying! Because she has not won NOT ONE. EVER. SO all that, oh woah is her is a bunch of bs. A POS momma. Gilbert is petty as hell but clearly knows what he is talking about.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    If she were a man with orange skin and yellow hair and said the same thing!? She’d be elected president. In other words no one cares.

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    There is enough to talk about with this family; it was stupid to make something up.

    Donald’s relationship with his daughter is very creepy. She’s right.

    Her and him are nut jobs. Was she trying to get more than 44K.

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals Lovezoe

    He don’t want them kids FT, if he did I believe he would.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Has anyone seen the Footnotes to Kanye video? I luv it.

  • realtalkallday

    Preach

  • klwbaby

    They act like she is the first person who has said or thought about this. Her own daddy, Mr. F*** Yo Feelings, I Can Touch Who I Want, was the first to put that thought in people’s mind after he said he would date her if circumstances were different….

  • realtalkallday

    Exactly…And do you see how one sided Sandra is? His stupidity has been making headlines ALL week. From his wealthy white men cabinet picks to him outing Twitter from a tech meeting over an emoji. But he stays tweeting! At least Obama has common sense. Trump is worried about this week’s episode of SNL. Period

  • realtalkallday

    Thank you!!!!

  • Hmmm~?

    What do ya’ll know about their relationship? Aside from that one old photo where she’s sitting on his lap?

  • realtalkallday

    Ditto! Because the trolls are coming! All dressed in Orange! The Tang Gang!!

  • Erin

    sounds about right

  • realtalkallday

    Nothing, but the fact that HE said he would date her if she wasn’t his daughter!! His words…. Is that creepy enough?

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    44k a month? Wow! What she wasn’t satisfied with that?

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    Lot of people will get fired in the next few months because of twitter…

    Do they get unemployment when they do? (Just curious)

  • klwbaby

    I heard that she was more concerned about reality tv and being seen on red carpets, than taking care of their kids.

  • Junkanoo

This is not a good sign the media lies constantly so now we’re only suppose to believe what they want us to believe.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She was just extrapolating The Donald’s own words
    Sorry if what she said has you pressed.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Welp.. she might not have anything to worry about. She still has another job lined up — not likely she’ll be on the unemployment line….

  • http://www.Samanthagwrites.com Samantha G.

    ? He’s not even in office yet and I’m already deeply annoyed by Trump and his spawns existence

  • Wolfperm

    Trump and his team are probably putting these false rumors out in order to convince the masses that all other news sources besides his Twitter account ? are reporting fake news.

  • Cee Cee Carter

    This is a huge issue… I feel like our 1st amendment rights will be compromised by Trump and his administration. Any public figure that speaks out against Trump gets fired or loses money. This is what you call a dictatorship and not a democracy.

  • stanhope

    Bitch deserved to be fired and kicked in trump’s favorite spot…the cat

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    It’s so sad…..this kind of stuff makes Americans look like sore losers smh. Stop being bitter and make a plan to change things next term. All the cattyness(if thats a word) and ugly insults are getting old. The sad part is they haven’t even put him in office. I don’t know if I can take 4 years of this. They keep putting him in the new by doing stupid stuff like that smdh. I’m just sick of the whole thing??????

  • Asiaa Robinson

    Where were you the last 8 years when it was happening to Obama was you sick then…… I can’t believe fools really think Donald Trump was gonna get any respect… especially when he’s such an easy target as a buffoon all you have to do it is following him on social media…..

  • Asiaa Robinson

    Folks don’t remember that and still dont to this day but we will remind them

  • Asiaa Robinson

    Exactly

  • Asiaa Robinson

    Sounds like freedom of the press to me

  • ?Patty Kakes?

    Chile what are you talking about. U just looking to start a useless debate. No body said a damn thing about Obama

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    FREEDOM DOES NOT EQUAL ABUSE

  • edlorens

    It’s set up… obstructions and problems to create from the start. I blame Mr. Obama , he had potentials but look how he transformed the nation and the Democratic party during his tenure.
