Ivanka 'becoming like Hillary Clinton in the worst ways,' says CNN commentator Amanda Carpenter

A conservative former GOP staffer sounded off on President Trump's eldest daughter on Tuesday, commenting on Ivanka Trump's White House role and increasing likeness to former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Amanda Carpenter -- a CNN political commentator and former spokeswoman for Sen. Ted Cruz and speechwriter for former Sen. Jim DeMint -- appeared on CNN with Erin Burnett on Tuesday commenting on Ivanka Trump's getting booed and hissed at during a women's panel at the W20 Summit in Berlin.

Carpenter put in her two cents, saying Ivanka Trump is "becoming like Hillary Clinton in the worst ways."

"She's sort of becoming increasingly unlikeable," Amanda Carpenter said during the CNN segment. "She keeps trying to get these jobs that she's not qualified for based on family connections, and every time when given the chance she's asked about President Trump's poor track record towards women, she defends the bad conduct that he has exhibited in the past."

Carpenter authored an op-ed for Cosmopolitan last month, in which she made the case that Ivanka Trump's White House role "is an insult to working women."

"Just remember she's only sitting in that seat because her daddy let her," Carpenter wrote. "That's not the case for the overwhelming majority of working women in America and we shouldn't celebrate anyone for whom that is."

Carpenter has also been critical of Hillary Clinton in the past -- even publishing a book, "The Vast Right-Wing Conspiracy's Dossier on Hillary Clinton," in 2006.

The former Capitol Hill staffer continued her criticism of Ivanka Trump during her Tuesday CNN appearance, saying the first daughter would be "much more well-suited" in a role within a non-government sector.

"It's a joke that our government is holding Ivanka Trump up as a symbol of female empowerment when she's gotten everything in her life because of her father," Carpenter said. "It's not smart for her to make herself like Hillary Clinton, to pretend that she's some international icon for women when on the national stage she defends terrible conduct that her father has demonstrated towards women."
