Ivanka Trump appeared on Monday's airing of "Fox & Friends" and was excoriated by New York Post columnist John Podhoretz, who called her a "filthy liar."
Speaking about working in the White House, Ivanka admitted that working alongside her father, President Donald Trump — who is widely criticized by the left — is difficult.
“It is hard,” Ivanka said. “And there’s a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. I was not expecting the intensity of this experience.”
She added, "Some of the distractions and some of the ferocity, I was a little blindsided by it on a personal level. For me, I’m trying to keep my head down and not listen to the noise and just work really hard to make a positive impact.”
Podhoretz, however, accused Ivanka of being a "filthy liar" in a tweet that slammed both her and her father.
“Her father said Ben Carson was a psychopath and Ted Cruz’s father killed JFK and she wasn’t expecting viciousness," Podhoretz wrote. "She’s a filthy liar."
The 56-year-old Podhoretz also mocked 35-year-old Ivanka over her appearance.
In a second tweet, Podhoretz added, "Ivanka’s hair on Fox and Friends looked like it went through a pasta roller."
After his comment about Ivanka's hair, Twitter erupted in anger over what many called Podhoretz's "sexist" comments.

I was briefly taken aback by the level of viciousness directed at her by you, but I quickly got over it.

it's called straightening; if you haven't notice she's not the only one who has that style. Where have you been. 😊

You are the most petty person on twitter. A great ambassador for New York.

You shouldn't be attacking anyone about their looks. Something about glass houses or shiny bald heads I think.

I'm so happy to realize that someone like you never dated a beautiful woman. You've most likely had the dregs of society.

Since when has this toddlers' behavior become acceptable for a senior citizen? Get your act together man.

Sounds like you have hair envy? Too bad a fat bald slob has to attack a woman

Update: The original headline called John Podhoretz a liberal. He is not. The headline has been edited to fix that error.
