Ivanka Trump’s maid of honor reveals why she’s no longer friends with first daughter in cruel betrayal to ex-BFF

IVANKA Trump’s former “best friend” has written a scathing article claiming the first daughter’s impolite behavior as a kid led her to fully embrace her father’s character.

In a harsh betrayal written by her apparent former best friend, Lysandra Ohrstrom, Ivanka is described as a bratty person willing to blame others in order to evade trouble, and having made troubling remarks in private.

“I watched her blow up her carefully curated image of refined privilege to embrace her father wholesale,” wrote Ohrstrom, a journalist who attended the all-girls private school Chapin with Ivanka in New York.

Ohrstrom also was one of two maids of honor at Ivanka’s marriage ceremony to Jared Kushner in 2009, she wrote in the piece, published in Vanity Fair on Tuesday.

She writes that she and Ivanka were close until immediately following the wedding, when Ohrstrom says their friendship distanced after Ivanka did not enough interest in her new occupation.

The Joe Biden supporter said she and Ivanka maintained a distant friendship since, and decided to write the essay of allegations against her former best friend after seeing Ivanka continue to defend her father’s actions.

Ohrstrom characterizes Ivanka as a charming teen who often managed to evade trouble with adults and try to distance herself from her father, yet Ohrstrom alleges Ivanka was just as obsessed with money as he was.

In one claim Ohrstrom put forth, she recalls Ivanka responding, ‘Ly, why would you tell me to read a book about f**king poor people?’ after Ohrstrom told her she was reading Richard Russo’s 2001 Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Empire Falls.

“What part of you thinks I would be interested in this?” Ohrstrom recalled Ivanka saying of the book, which follows the life of a diner manager in a working-class town in Maine.

Ohrstrom also cited a recent incident when Eric Trump tweeted a photo of one of Biden’s former real estate holdings and wondered how a politician could afford a mansion.

“I thought about how Ivanka used to point out inconsistencies between a character’s profession and their lifestyle when we went to the movies,” Ohrstrom wrote.

She then claimed Ivanka would ask her, “Since when can a teacher afford a BMW?” while eating “her usual small popcorn, coated in what would be an unpalatable amount of salt to a normal person. Or, ‘why is a police officer living in a house like that?'”

Ohrstrom also alleges Ivanka would force her and other girls into misbehaving, like showing their breasts at a hot dog vendor.

“One of the earliest memories I have of Ivanka from before we were friends is when she blamed a fart on a classmate,” Ohrstrom wrote. “Sometime later, she goaded me and a few other girls into flashing our breasts out the window of our classroom in what has since been labelled the ‘flashing the hot dog man’ incident in Chapin lore.”

“Ivanka had basically been the ringleader, but she pleaded her innocence to the headmistress and got off scot-free. The rest of us were suspended,” Ohrstrom wrote.

Ohrstrom claims she met Donald Trump on a number of occasions, who “would barely acknowledge me except to ask if Ivanka was the prettiest or the most popular girl in our grade.”

“Before I learned that the Trumps have no sense of humor about themselves, I remember answering honestly that she was probably in the top five,” Ohrstrom wrote. When Ohrstrom answered two other girls, Ohrstrom alleges Trump “described one as a young Cindy Crawford, while the other he said had a great figure.”

Although the president never remembered her name, Ohrstrom claims, he did “have a photographic memory for changes in my body.”

“I’ll never forget the time Ivanka and I were having lunch with her brothers at Mar-a-Lago one day,” Ohrstrom wrote, before saying Donald Trump Jr “swiped half a grilled cheese sandwich off my plate.”

“Ivanka scolded him, but Mr. Trump chimed in, ‘Don’t worry. She doesn’t need it. He’s doing her a favor,'” Ohrstrom claims. “Conversely, he’d usually congratulate me if I’d lost weight.”

Still, Ohrstrom claims she refused to comment on Ivanka and Trump since his presidency, saying: “I didn’t think he had any chance of winning.”

She more so felt that “when Ivanka joined her dad’s administration, I was sure she would step in to moderate her father’s most regressive, racist tendencies.”

However, Ohrstrom claims Ivanka would do so “not out of any moral commitment, but because caging young children and ripping up global climate agreements was not a good look in the halls of Davos.”

In a savage critique of her former best friend, Ohrstrom concludes: “The Ivanka I knew spent her career developing and embodying a more polished and intellectual offshoot of the Trump brand.”

The brand, she said, “blended the language and look of white millennial feminism with the mythical narrative of the business acumen and entrepreneurial spirit she claimed to have inherited from her dad.”

But to end, Ohrstrom doubled down into her characterization of Ivanka.

“Instead, I’ve watched as Ivanka has laid waste to the image she worked so hard to build,” wrote Ohrstrom.

“In private, I’ve had countless conversations with friends who also grew up with Ivanka about how appalled we are that she didn’t publicly oppose Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court nomination,” she continued, “or any of her dad’s especially repugnant policies.”

“My disgust with the Trumps was outweighed by my fear of being dragged through the mud, dismissed by the family as a nasty loser,” Ohrstrom wrote, questioning why others hadn’t come forward either.

“I think it’s past time that one of the many critics from Ivanka’s childhood comes forward—if only to ensure that she really will never recover from the decision to tie her fate to her father’s.”
