Ivana Trump Causes A Stir With 'First Lady' Remarks

For those with complex romantic histories, things can get a bit awkward when the ex remains in the picture as you both go on about your lives. While that can be pretty strange when there are no kids involved, it’s getting to the point that it’s accepted and understood when there are. Children deserve to have both of their parents in their lives, even if that results in two separate households. In a perfect world, drama is completely off the table and everyone focuses on the kids.

We don’t know if that’s been the case for President Donald Trump and his ex-wife, Ivana Trump, but we’ll fashion a guess that they’ve managed to have a decent relationship for the sake of their kids. Ivana is the mother to Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka Trump, and all three of them appear to be well-adjusted adults. Call us crazy, but that’s not something that happens all that easily when there’s drama on the homefront. Unfortunately, there is some present-day drama for the trio of Trump offspring to wrap their heads around, and it comes courtesy of dear old mom.

As The Hill shares, Ivana recently appeared on "Good Morning America," and she dropped a few comments that raised some eyebrows.

"I have the direct number to White House, but I no really want to call him there because Melania is there,” she said. "I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I'm basically first Trump wife.”

That’s not too terrible, but she would then add a little joke that could lead to some awkwardness in the future.

“I’m first lady, OK?" Ivana laughed.

The conversation would move on to her children and their use of social media, and Ivana was asked how she would feel if her children behaved in the same fashion as her ex-husband does at times on social media.

“I think they sometimes call the people losers. If they are losers, they are losers, okay?” she replied. “And I don’t mind it.”

Ivana made another appearance recently on “CBS Sunday Morning,” and she noted some previous discussions she has had with the president about his use of social media.

“I said, ‘I think you should tweet. It’s a new way, a new technology. And if you want to get your words across rightly, without telling The New York Times, which is going to twist every single word of yours, this is how you get your message out,’” she noted. “Well, it’s a tweeting president. This is his new way, how to put the message across. And he’s right.”

The president actually offered her the opportunity to serve as United States ambassador to the Czech Republic, but she declined.

“I like my freedom. I like to do what I want to do, go wherever I want to go with whomever I want to go,” Ivana said.

It sounds like she enjoys her time out of the spotlight, but it will be shining bright on her for a while as the social media universe comes to terms with her ‘First Lady’ comment.
