Samantha Bee, a TV host and political commentator on "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee," has not been shy about her dislike toward the current White House administration. Now, however, she is admitting that she does not think Donald J. Trump will be the only Trump to occupy the Oval in her lifetime.
In a recent interview, the late night talk show host said that she knows she will see a female president in her lifetime. When comedian Ana Gasteyer asked who that female would be, Bee hesitantly responded.
Bee said, "I feel so sad that you asked me that question because I'm gonna give you my honest answer. It's gonna ruin everyone's night."
She continued, "I honestly- I'm so sorry- I think maybe our first female president might be Ivanka Trump."
To that statement, Gasteyer strongly disagreed and said that the only reason that the First Daughter would stand a chance in the future is her fame. However, what the comedian did not mention is that Ivanka Trump actually has a fairly strong approval rating.
On Wednesday, Politico/Morning Consult released a poll, showing the approval rating of members of the White House. Ivanka Trump pulled a 44% approval rating, one of the highest among the Trump family.
Additionally, Ivanka is gaining a plethora of experience in politics while serving in the current administration. She serves as an advisor and is getting ready to lead the U.S. delegation to India, supporting women's entrepreneurship.
Even with her experience, some have complained that they feel the First Daughter has not done enough for the administration. Many were hopeful that Ivanka would act as a sort of moderator for her father, but she has said that her role is to support President Trump, not try to change his opinions.
