UPDATE: A source close to Ivanka Trump’s company tells Us Weekly that “a simple mistake was made by a staff member” with the liking of the post. The story has since been deleted from her mentions.
The social media activity was first unearthed by CNN reporter Andrew Kaczynski on Monday, October 10. The network just poached Kaczynski and political editors Kyle Blaine, Nate McDermott and Christopher Massie from BuzzFeed last week.
The businesswoman, 34, clicked on and seemingly approved of the Huffington Post article, which paints the GOP presidential candidate, 70, in a negative light. “Trump in 2004: It’s OK to call daughter Ivanka a ‘piece of ass,'” the tweet reads. (During the interview, Stern, 62, asked if he could describe Ivanka as such, and Donald said yes.)
In the story, Trump’s 2003 chat with Stern, in which Trump says Ivanka has “the best body,” is also mentioned. Additionally, the story claims that staffers on the set of The Apprentice said that Donald compared contestants’ looks to his daughter.

The story included comments Trump made during The View and to Rolling Stone, too. “Yeah, she’s really something, and what a beauty, that one. If I weren’t happily married and, ya know, her father. …” he told the mag in 2015.
Several of Donald’s past remarks have come back to haunt him this month. This past Friday, The Washington Post released a 2005 video of the media mogul bragging to Billy Bush about groping women before an Access Hollywood interview. Donald boasted about hitting on a married woman, who later was revealed to be Bush’s then cohost Nancy O’Dell.
“I moved on her like a bitch, but I couldn’t get there, and she was married. Then all of a sudden I see her, she’s now got the big phony tits and everything,” Donald said on the hot mic.
The two men were on set of Days of Our Lives during the chat. “I better use some Tic Tacs just in case I start kissing her,” Donald added, when he noticed soap star Arianne Zucker from afar. “You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything.”
Donald and Bush, 44, later apologized for their behavior. NBC suspended Bush from the Today show indefinitely, and Donald was asked about the incident during the second presidential debate against Hillary Clinton on Sunday night. (Ivanka was in attendance with the rest of their family.)
“I apologized to my family. I apologize to to the American people, certainly I’m not proud of but certainly this is locker room talk,” he said. “I’m very embarrassed by it. I hate it, but it’s locker room talk. It’s one of those things.”
