Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have been putting not only physical distance in their relationship with Donald Trump but emotional distance, as the former president continues to live in the past, harping on the election he still falsely says was stolen from him, unable to move on to reality – and in frequent contact with far right acolytes like MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell.
Now that Trump is out of the White House and away from Mar-a-Lago, his Florida home where Ivanka and Jared have a high rise apartment nearby, and living at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf resort, his once closest advisors are “distancing” themselves from him, a CNN deep dive reveals.
“With each passing day away from Washington, former President Donald Trump’s grievances continue unabated. And those complaints appear to be driving away two of the people who were closest to him during his White House tenure: his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.”
CNN adds that “the former President complains for several hours about the ‘stolen’ 2020 election. Other times, his frustrations emerge in fits and starts — more likely when he is discussing his hopeful return to national politics. And while he often has a rotating audience of cheering listeners, the gap between Trump and his daughter and son-in-law grows wider by the week.”
Ivanka Trump, who served many roles during her father’s entrance into politics and eventually into the White House, has “struggled to undo the entanglements” she created by being First Daughter, Senior White House Advisor, Director of the Office of Economic Initiatives and Entrepreneurship, and appearing to strike a higher-profile that led some to believe she would run for elected office soon.
Trump “has also started to question the role that Kushner — one of the few people who were able to stay close to Trump throughout his two presidential campaigns and White House tenure — has played in his presidential legacy,” as he grows increasingly tied to the far right elements in his circle.
“Now Trump finds himself more often in the company of an ever-changing circle of advisers. Trump allies say he is once again interacting with characters who should require supervision — noting that he has been in frequent touch with One America News anchor Christina Bobb, a prolific proponent of far-fetched theories about the 2020 election, in addition to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who has encouraged Trump to keep challenging the 2020 election results in several states.”
The one person CNN does not mention? Former First Lady Melania Trump.

Employer of Anti-Masker Who ‘Deliberately’ Coughed on Supermarket Shoppers Announces She ‘No Longer Works’ There
A woman who refused to wear a mask inside a Nebraska supermarket and apparently “deliberately” coughed on other customers “no longer works for” her now-former employer, software giant SAP.
The viral video, which has received over 4 million views in just two days, shows the woman, almost giddy, as she claims to have “allergies” and “maybe” a medical condition, while coughing in the direction of other shoppers who recorded her actions.
KRON reported the Nebraska town where the supermarket is located has an ordinance requiring masks, regardless of vaccination status. The report also stated she “was caught on camera appearing to deliberately cough inside a supermarket without a face mask on.”
An internet sleuth identified the woman, and on Wednesday SAP announced it was “investigating.” Hours later the company posted a tweet saying the woman no longer works for them, although it did not disclose any details.
We have reviewed the incident and can confirm that the individual in question no longer works for SAP.

In the video (below) the woman, who apparently does not understand how the coronavirus operates, can be heard saying, “I don’t need to have [a mask] on, I’m not sick and neither are you.”
Video of the woman was posted to Twitter by a freelance reporter who regularly exposes acts of wrongdoing:

Pelosi to Cuomo: Resign
The Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives, the second most-powerful elected woman in America today wasted no time in telling New York’s Democratic governor to resign.
Speaker Pelosi in a short but pointed statement released to the press told two-term Governor Andrew Cuomo he must leave office after a damning investigation by another Democrat, New York State Attorney General Letitia James, alleges he sexually harassed “multiple women,” and in her view broke federal and state law.
“Under Attorney General Letitia James, a comprehensive and independent investigation into the allegations against Governor Cuomo has been completed,” Speaker Pelosi said.
“As always, I commend the women who came forward to speak their truth.
“Recognizing his love of New York and the respect for the office he holds, I call upon the Governor to resign.”
Other top Democrats, including the Senate Majority Leader, Chuck Schumer of New York, and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York also called on Cuomo to quit.
As ABC News reports the list of Democrats calling for Cuomo to resign is long and growing. It also includes New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, who is the Democratic nominee for NYC mayor. Several state-level elected officials also are on the list.
By comparison, even before the 2016 presidential election Donald Trump had been credibly accused of rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, or sexual misconduct by dozens of women. Even after his damning comments in the “Access Hollywood” video Republicans ultimately stood by him.
Twitter Announces Massive Revenue Growth, Increase in Users After Banning Trump: Report
Social media giant Twitter has announced a massive level of growth and increase in users.
According to CNBC, Twitter revenue increased 74% this quarter, and 28% in the previous quarter. CNBC calls it “the strongest growth since 2014.”
The company banned Donald Trump on January 8, “due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” it said in its announcement explaining its reasons for the permanent suspension two days after Trump incited the January 6 insurrection.
Neither CNBC nor Twitter cited the ban on Trump as the reason for the increase in revenue or users, but anecdotally many have commented in the weeks and months after Trump was no longer on the site how much more enjoyable the platform was.
In April The New York Times reported on Twitter sans Trump.
“For all of the country’s news consumers, a strange quiet has descended after a four-year bombardment of presidential verbiage,” wrote Sarah Lyall in a Political Memo, offering these observations from several users:
“My blood pressure has gone down 20 points,” said Mr. Cavalli, 71, whose obsessive hate-following of Mr. Trump ended for good when Twitter permanently barred the former president in January. “Not having to read his latest dishonest tweets has made my life so much happier.”
“I legitimately slept better with him off Twitter,” said Mario Marval, 35, a program manager and Air Force veteran in the Cincinnati area. “It allowed me to reflect on how much of a vacuum of my attention he became.”
For Matt Leece, 29, a music professor in Bloomsburg, Pa., the Twitter suspension was akin to a clearing of the air: “It’s like living in a city perpetually choked with smog, and suddenly one day you wake up and the sky is blue, the birds are singing, and you can finally take a full, nontoxic breath.”
Trump in early July announced he was suing Twitter, Facebook, and Google for banning him. Experts say the lawsuit is without merit.
