Not only did Ivanka stroll in, according to CNN, she came in right after Trump sided with Democrats to pass disaster relief funding, raising the debt ceiling, and continuing to fund the government until December. “No, come on up, honey”.

Stephen Colbert’s not down with “Daddy” Trump.
She reportedly did a similar thing whilst her father was talking to Gerard Baker, editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, where she said she “wanted to come by and say “hi”, before the two began a friendly discussion.
“Not weird at all“, the comedian deadpanned after airing a clip from Trump’s speech.
“Sean Spicer was actually the one who started it”, Colbert quipped of Trump’s former press secretary.
The president’s freakish reference to Ivanka calling him “daddy” did not go unnoticed on Twitter, either.
It is not clear whether the Ivanka’s “drop-bys” are instigated by her in order to help push her own agenda, or choreographed by Trump himself in order to help close deals with his associates or soften his image towards reporters.
In the tweet, Ivanka praised the story of an undocumented worker whose tenacity landed her a job on Wall Street.
“You treated us very, very well in November and have continued to, so we like showing the love back”.
