Princess Ivanka Refuses to Speak to Lowly CNN Reporter Jim Acosta While Acting Like the Queen of Davos
First daughter and presidential adviser Ivanka Trump ignored impeachment questions from CNN’s Jim Acosta when he approached her in Davos, where she walked around like she was the Queen of Davos.
Trump, who traveled with Donald Trump to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, was on hand to promote the Pledge to America’s Workers and “wage growth and job creation in the United States.”
Ivanka tweeted on Monday, “Headed to Davos to call on the world’s largest employers to sign our #PledgetoAmericasWorkers and join us in unleashing the potential of our people and accelerating the historic wave of opportunity, wage growth and job creation in the United States.”

Acosta approached Trump as she descended a staircase, asking her to comment on her father’s impeachment trial which was set to begin just hours later.

Donald Trump Jr. responded by attacking Acosta, calling him “one of the most dishonest reporters in all of Washington.”
Why should she give a comment to one of the most dishonest reporters in all of Washington??? https://t.co/YYmD30WL5P

Twitter had some thoughts:
She will never get the hint that she's not wanted there. Her presence is an insult to all the other attendees who are qualified to be there.
She's an embarrassment.

Ivanka's Thoughts: Geez, he's so annoying. Doesn't he know how important and smart and pretty I am?

What would be even better? If everyone ignored her, no one cared that she was there, talked around her, pretended she wasn't even there, asked her opinion, listened to her prepared public statement/speeches.

Like watching an Egyptian royal daring to step into the huddled masses. Bow down subservient surfs, your queen has arrived.
