Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner were spotted doing something odd outside of their Washington, D.C., home — leaving in separate vehicles at the same time.
The daughter and son-in-law of President Donald Trump were seen leaving their home at the same time in different SUVs around 9:30 a.m., making it their first public sighting since being mocked on “Saturday Night Live.” Why the couple left separately was not revealed, but Ivanka kept a relatively low profile in a winter coat, hat, gloves and sunglasses as she got into an SUV, Daily Mail reported.
The sighting came just after Scarlett Johansson parodied Ivanka on the most recent episode of “Saturday Night Live” — in a fake fragrance commercial for a scent called “Complicit.”
“Every man knows her name, every woman knows her face. When she walks into a room, all eyes are on her: she’s Ivanka,” a voiceover in the sketch said while Johansson’s Ivanka character walked through a room. “She’s beautiful, she’s powerful, she’s complicit.”
“A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women, but.. like.. how… She’s loyal, devoted, but probably should’ve bounced after the whole “Access Hollywood” bus thing,” the voiceover continued.
Johansson previously played the first daughter on the show in 2007.
Meanwhile, Donald Trump has continued to receive criticism for failing to provide evidence to claims that former President Barack Obama wiretapped him during his campaign. Republican Sen. John McCain of Arizona told CNN that he hoped the president would seek hard evidence for the serious, so-far unfounded allegation — which he made after reportedly reading a Breitbart article.
“I have no reason to believe that the charge is true, but I also believe that the President of the United States could clear this up in a minute,” McCain said. “All he has to do is pick up the phone, call the director of the CIA, … and say, ‘OK, what happened?'”
McCain added that as long as the accusation is left unsubstantiated, “it undermines the confidence the American people have in the entire way the that the government does business.”
During his CNN interview, McCain also voiced concerns over questions regarding the president’s relationship to Russia.
“There’s a lot of aspects of this whole relationship with Russia and [Russian President] Vladimir Putin that requires further scrutiny, and so far, I don’t think the American people have gotten all the answers,” he said. “In fact, I think there’s a lot more shoes to drop from this centipede.”
The president is also facing questions regarding his promise to refuse the $400,000 presidential salary, which the White House declined to provide proof of when asked by NBC News. He and his staff previously said the president would donate the salary to charity or give it back to the Treasury Department.
He also pledged to “donate all profits from foreign governments’ patronage of his hotels and similar businesses” to the Treasury Department, which there has reportedly been no evidence of, either.
