Ivanka Trump stated her very own definition of what being ‘complicit’ was – and it’s fair to say it didn’t go down well with everyone.
Donald Trump’s daughter was being interviews on CBS News when host Gayle King asked her whether she and husband Jared Kushner Trump were “complicit in what is happening to the White House”.
Responding to the question, Trump said: ‘If being complicit is wanting… to be a force for good and to make a positive impact, then I’m complicit.”
She then added: “I don’t know what it means to be complicit, but 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.”
Trump critics then jumped on her comments, accusing her of not actually knowing what the word ‘complicit’ means – altho some people were very helpful:

Others used the interview to mock both Trump and her father once again:
Ivanka Trump’s I don’t know what it means to be complicit will be one of the terrible definitive epitaphs of this moment in American history

‘‘If being complicit is wanting to be a force for good…then I’m complicit.” Not possible, @IvankaTrump-your father is corrupt to the core.
