List Rules Vote up the most absurd things uttered by the First Daughter.

As far as the outrageous and extreme things people in the Trump family say, daughter Ivanka Trump is not too far behind her dad. Though to be fair, in a way it’s understandable for Ivanka Trump to be a little out of touch. After all, this is the woman who once said, “I've never lived in a building without my name on it.” That truly is a weird way to grow up.

Many of Ivanka Trump’s most insane quotes come from her two books, The Trump Card: How to Win in Work and Life published in 2009 and Women Who Work, published after Donald became president 2017. While both books make an attempt to provide women with progressive and helpful advice, they come off as a bit tone-deaf at best. At worst, Ivanka Trump has been accused of being a fake feminist. This particular accusation has caused many to even compare Ivanka Trump to Taylor Swift, as both women only use feminism when it works to further their career and both refuse to publicly condemn Donald Trump.

While the disconnect between Ivanka Trump and the rest of the world may be slightly understandable, these quotes are too zany to ignore. If nothing else, vote up what you think is the most absurd, out of touch things she's said.

What She Said: "In business, as in life, nothing is ever handed to you. Yes, I’ve had the great good fortune to be born into a life of wealth and privilege, with a name to match. Yes, I’ve had every opportunity, every advantage. And yes, I’ve chosen to build my career on a foundation built by my father and grandfather, so I can certainly see why an outsider might dismiss my success in our family business as yet another example of nepotism."

What She Said: "Perception is more important than reality. If someone perceives something to be true, it is more important than if it is in fact true. This doesn’t mean you should be duplicitous or deceitful, but don’t go out of your way to correct a false assumption if it plays to your advantage."

When She Said It: In her 2009 book, The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.
