Ivanka Trump faces onslaught of criticism over her new book

Ivanka Trump is facing a barrage of criticism for not addressing the concerns of everyday women in her new book "Women Who Work: Rewriting the Rules for Success."

In fact, the review mentions that she doesn't prioritize grocery shopping in her time-management grid, stating, "Do the groceries just magically appear in her fridge? Oh, wait. They probably do."

And critics have been particularly harsh about a passage where she says about a time during her father's campaign, "Honestly, I wasn't treating myself to a massage or making much time for self-care."

ThinkProgress argues, "The problem is that the women Trump surrounds herself with offer a very skewed vision of what the typical American working woman looks like."
