In what is one of the weirdest-ever photos we've seen of Ivanka Trump, the daughter of Donald poses in a modified Playboy-ish bunny costume in the June issue of Harper's Bazaar, which hits newsstands May 31st. Inside the issue, she talks about her pregnancy and her dad's fake-bid for the presidency.
On timing her first child: "We both said we wanted to wait one year and just enjoy being newlyweds. So we waited pretty much exactly that. Jared is ecstatic. She'll be a daddy's girl. I have a feeling they are going to gang up on me."Says the person who's inexplicably posing in a bunny costume.
On raising a child: "We have our work cut out for us to ensure that our daughter is grounded and not spoiled."
On her dad's presidential bid: "I think he's exactly what we need. He's the best equipped to deal with the most important issues this nation has, which is ultimately that we're suffering under a massive burden of debt. We need a very acute financial mind to get us out of this mire.”
She doesn't like President Obama: "America is the largest corporation on the planet. You wouldn't hire a novice to run a similarly sized company in the private markets. Of course [once he was elected] I wanted him to succeed, but he's proven to be a very ineffective leader. He has just not risen to the occasion. He doesn't have business experience or a business mind."
