Jared And Ivanka's Nickname For Kellyanne Conway Is Revealed In New White House Tell-All

Workplace drama is a pretty common thing, so why should it be any different in the White House? According to Michael Wolff’s salacious new book, it’s not any different at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

In ‘Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House,’ Wolff paints a picture of an administration that is in disarray. On top of that, a whole slew of White House staffers apparently don’t think all that highly of President Donald Trump.

The book is littered with assertions from sources that Trump is unfit for the presidency, and critics of the commander-in-chief have celebrated the book as confirmation of their personal beliefs. However, there have been some questions bandied about in terms of the overall credibility of Wolff’s work.

He’s developed a reputation as a storyteller through the years, and both the White House and members of the journalistic community have called into question the claims that are made in the book. In fact, the White House has gone as far as to dub the book as a work of fiction.

Wolff remains steadfast in defense of his work, but he has noticeably struggled in several media appearances with some simple questions about his actual access to Trump while writing the book. That said, it’s clear that he had unprecedented access to the White House, and there’s still no clarity on exactly how that happened.

So what does this all mean? Is Wolff on the money here or telling tall tales?

While there’s no definitive answer to that question, we can likely find the truth where it tends to reside on controversial subjects: somewhere in the middle. Wolff was clearly building towards a narrative with the book - that Trump is unfit from office - and he used quotes and White House scuttlebutt to help build his case.

In any event, it sounds like the White House is a rather gossip-filled atmosphere that may fit right in within the confines of a reality program. Beyond there being plenty of folks that were willing to throw shade at Trump and his family, it also sounds like members of the administration are none too shy about shooting each other down.

For example, Wolff claims that Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have a rather cruel nickname for White House counselor Kellyanne Conway.

As Bustle shares, the DC power couple has taken to referring to Conway as ‘Nails,’ an apparent reference to the Disney character Cruella de Vil.

Wolff notes that the voracity with which Conway defends Trump during media appearances and the fact that she’s caused a number of unnecessary controversies while doing so rubs folks in the White House the wrong way, but she has clearly endeared herself to the president.

“But she had indeed been sidelined, reduced to second-rate media, to being a designated emissary to right-wing groups and left out of any meaningful decision-making. This she blamed on the media, a scourge that further united her in self-pity with Trump,” she wrote.

“In fact, her relationship with the president deepened as they bonded over their media wounds."

If that is in fact how Ivanka and Jared refer to Conway, it’s an immeasurably bad look from a pair of folks that should clearly remain above the fray.

It sounds like there’s more than enough dysfunction in the White House at the moment without the president’s own family members adding to the drama.
