On December 14, Julia loffe’s Politico contract was terminated after she tweeted, “Either Trump is fucking his daughter or he’s shirking nepotism laws. Which is worse?” The tweet linked to a report in The Hill that claimed Ivanka Trump will get the White House office space traditionally reserved for the first lady.
That evening, loffe posted a series of messages on her personal account, apologizing for what she had written.
“It was a tasteless, offensive tweet that I regret and have deleted. I am truly and deeply sorry. It won’t happen again,” the journalist wrote.

loffe did make a point to note, however, that the country has “a president-elect who popularized ‘saying what everyone is thinking.’”

Indeed, Trump has never shied away from vocalizing his objectionable thoughts on his daughter’s looks. Here are some of the most outrageous comments:
When asked what he and his daughter both consider their favorite things, Trump answered, “I was going to say sex, but I can relate to [golf and real estate].”
“Ivanka posing for Playboy would be really disappointing… not really. But it would depend on what was inside the magazine…I don’t think Ivanka would [do a nude shoot] inside the magazine, Although she does have a very nice figure. I’ve said that if Ivanka weren’t my daughter, perhaps I’d be dating her.”
“You know who’s one of the great beauties of the world, according to everybody? And I helped create her. Ivanka. My daughter, Ivanka. She’s 6 feet tall, she’s got the best body.”
“She’s actually always been very voluptuous… she’s tall, she’s almost 6 feet tall… she’s a real beauty.”
“Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father….”
“Is it wrong to be more sexually attracted to your own daughter than your wife?”
