The White House is currently the workplace of two couples who captivate the imaginations of the American public. Much attention has been paid to the somewhat strange relationship between the president and first lady Melania Trump. Another White House couple, first daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner are similarly curious.
On Tuesday, Ivanka tweeted about how proud she is of her husband and his work in the Trump administration, along with a link to a CNN interview with Jared. Ivanka tweeted writing, “So proud of Jared for everything he has accomplished in 22 months at the White House. I am continuously impressed by his incredible work ethic, laser focus and quiet achievement as he serves our great Country”

Kushner participated in CNN’s day-long CITIZEN conference. While on a panel at the conference, Kushner similarly praised his wife. He said, “Anyone with Ivanka would be a power couple. She’s really amazing. When we started dating, I told her that if I wasn’t so attracted to her, she’d just be my best friend.”
Kushner went on saying, “We were always involved in each other’s business and knew what was going on, but working together has given me an even greater appreciation for just how effective she is with everything she does.” He added, “I mean, she puts her mind to accomplishing things and she’s able to get them there. Everyone wants to work with her and she’s a great team player.”
Kushner also praised Ivanka for her ability to balance her job as an adviser to her father with motherhood. He said, “Having two parents in the White House is a big strain obviously for the family, but she does a great job balancing it, and I don’t know how she does it, because I wouldn’t be able to do it.”
Twitter quickly jumped on Ivanka:
#KhashoggiMurder Ask your huband about the Saudi cover-up in the premeditated murder of Khashoggi. Was he on the list that Jared handed over the Saudis in the past or is he just OK with Saudi Arabia dismembering a US resident and journalist because of the money he owes them?

I’m proud of my husband, too! He isn’t a BFF with a murderer, though, so you win!

I thought this was a joke when I first read it.. I wonder if this includes his role in Khashoggi’s murder?

Ya gotta give Ivanka points for the tone deafness. It is truly an amazing spectacle to behold.

Ivanka, you poor thing. Are you that dumb that you do not realize that you and Jared are the laughing stock of this country? Jared sold an enemies list to MBS for how much money? That's his quiet achievement? https://t.co/Llp8UFtGdH

Your husband is BFFs with a murderer who had a man hacked apart with a bone saw because he dared to write a disparaging, and true, article about your barely sentient dog shit of a father.@iamsambee was so right about you, you feckless beast of a human. https://t.co/TN4OPBCuCQ
