President Trump's daughter and White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump is making headlines for her response to NBC News' Peter Alexander's question concerning her father's alleged sexual misconduct.

During interview in Pyeongchang, where she was representing the U.S. during the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics, Alexander asked the First Daughter if she believed the women who've come forward accusing her father of sexual misconduct.

Alexander asked Trump, "Do you believe your father's accusers?"

Trump responded by slamming the question as "inappropriate."

"I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it,” Trump replied. “I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father, I know my father, so I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father."

The question Alexander asked is pretty hypocritical since no one in the media asked Chelsea Clinton of her father Bill Clinton's past indiscretions, including rape allegations and other forms of sexual misconduct during her mother Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 presidential campaign.
