Ivanka & Jared Went On An Anti-Republican Movie Date

What Ivanka Did This Week is a weekly column that explores what Ivanka Trump, first daughter and adviser to President Donald Trump, does all day.

Squiggly Line
Ivanka's schedule has not been made public, so each week, we will do our best to cover the public events and forums she attends, the meetings she has with lawmakers and government officials, and her social media presence.
Tuesday, January 8
• Everyone (again) reported that Ivanka told People in 2007 she was once invited to be on The Bachelorette.
Wednesday, January 9
• Trump signed the Women’s Entrepreneurship and Economic Empowerment (WEEE) Act, which Ivanka strongly supported, into law. It aims to provide support for women-led ventures in developing countries and help women overcome gender-related barriers to economic growth, such as gender-based violence and limited access to education and healthcare. Ivanka started lobbying for the legislation last summer.

• In a new teaser for Family Guy, cartoon Donald Trump gets incredibly inappropriate with cartoon Ivanka.
• Ivanka issued a PSA on human trafficking in honor of the president signing a bill into law to combat the issue.
Thursday, January 10
• While soaking up the sun in Mar-a-Lago during the government shutdown (as one does), Ivanka and husband Jared Kushner went on a movie date to see Adam McKay's Vice, the controversial biopic of Dick Cheney. (Christian Bale, who portrayed Cheney, thanked Satan for giving him inspiration for the role.) Why did they go see a movie that portrays Republicans as, at best, bumbling idiots, and at worst evil? Who knows?! But they did reportedly walk out toward the end, so maybe they had had enough. Or maybe Ivanka needed to squeeze in one of her thrice-daily meditation sessions before Pilates.
• Ivanka posted a happy birthday message to Jared, "my best friend and the [emoji heart] of my life!"
