Published April 5, 2017

In a CBS interview with Gayle King, Ivanka Trump spoke out for the first time since becoming an unpaid assistant to the president. During the interview, King questioned Trump on how she feels when people — and SNL — call her “complicit” in her father’s controversial decisions.  

  1. “If being complicit is wanting to, is wanting to be a force for good and to make a positive impact then I’m complicit. I don’t know that the critics who may say that of me, if they found themselves in this very unique and unprecedented situation that I am now in, would do any differently than I am doing,” Trump told King. “So I hope to make a positive impact. I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but you know, I hope time will prove that I have done a good job and much more importantly that my father’s administration is the success that I know it will be.”

  2. The full interview, which aired Wednesday morning, resulted in Ivanka getting slammed for her 'complicit' statement
  3. People called out the Assistant to the President for not speaking out enough against her father
  4. There does happen to be one person close to Ivanka Trump who people seem to love, and that's her fabulous neighbor Dianne Bruce
  5. While hundreds of protesters danced outside of Ivanka's D.C. home to protest her father's rollback of climate change policies, Bruce marveled in the spectacle whilst wearing a fur coat and sipping white wine

    “I couldn’t resist, it was just great fun, it really was,” Bruce, a liberal Democrat and philanthropic fundraiser, told PEOPLE. “I love seeing people having fun and doing what they do. It added pizazz to the neighborhood.”

  6. Bruce instantly became an unsung hero to everyone in the #resistance
