How low has the bar for journalism fallen? After reading a breaking news story from the UK’s leftist DailyMail about Lysandra Ohrstrom, who also happens to write for The Observer and Huffington Post telling her story of a time when Ivanka Trump ‘blamed a fart on her classmates when she was a bratty teenager,‘ I have serious doubts that an ant could Limbo it’s way under it.
But this is what the state of our mainstream news media has become in 2020.
While many will claim that the liberal bias Daily Mail is nothing more than an online version of The National Enquirer. Truth be told, every major American news media outlet including CNN and MSNBC have used the DailyMail reporting as their source for their own Trump-Hate articles.
To their credit, the DailyMail did extensively cover the Hunter Biden email story that the New York Post broke just weeks before the 2020 Presidential Election, which hilariously these same mainstream media outlets completely ignored.
It’ll be hilarious to see which liberal news media outlets piggyback off of this DailyMail article that reported a woman claiming to be Ivanka Trump’s former ‘best friend’ says one of her earliest memories of her is her blaming a fart on someone else.
Liberal Media’s Soon To Be ‘Fartgate’
Lysandra Ohrstrom, a 38-year-old journalist who surprise, NOT surprised, writes for The Observer and ultra-leftist Huffington Post, attended Chapin, an all-girls private school on the Upper East Side, with Ivanka as a teenager.
Ohrstrom was also one of the two ‘maids of honor’ in Ivanka’s 2009 wedding to Jared Kushner.
She says the pair were close until immediately after the wedding their friendship fractured after Ohrstrom threw herself a pity-party because (sob) Ivanka did not pay enough interest in her new job.
Since then, she says, the pair have had a distant but polite friendship. She says has watched for years while Ivanka defended her father.
Ohrstrom, who voted for Biden in the recent election, is now laughably speaking out, saying it is time to lift the veil on who her former friend really is.
On Tuesday, Lysandra Ohrstrom wrote:
‘One of the earliest memories I have of Ivanka from before we were friends is when she blamed a fart on a classmate.’
She also alleges, among other things, that Ivanka was charming and precocious as a teenager which won over adults and made them think she’d shaken off her father’s crassness but was, in private, just as obsessed with money and struggled to hide it.
According to Lysandra, Ivanka responded: ‘Why would you tell me to read a book about f*****g poor people?’ after she recommended a novel about a diner manager.
She also allegedly said ‘Since when can a teacher afford a BMW?’ and ‘Why is a police officer living in a house like that?’ while the pair were watching movies, claiming they would not be able to afford them in real life.
Lysandra says that Ivanka also coaxed other girls into bad behavior, including flashing their breasts at ‘the hot dog man’ from the windows of their school, then talked her way out of trouble when they were caught.
‘Sometime later, she goaded me and a few other girls into flashing our breasts out the window of our classroom in what has since been labeled the “flashing the hot dog man” incident in Chapin lore.
‘Ivanka had basically been the ringleader, but she pleaded her innocence to the headmistress and got off scot-free.
‘The rest of us were suspended,’ she said.
She also claims to have spent time with the President, who asked her if Ivanka was the ‘prettiest’ girl in their grade and, she claims, was stunned when she said she wasn’t.
‘Before I learned that the Trumps have no sense of humor about themselves, I remember answering honestly that she was probably in the top five.
“Who’s prettier than Ivanka?” I recall him asking once with genuine confusion, before correctly naming the two girls I’d had in mind.
‘He described one as a young Cindy Crawford while the other he said had a great figure,’ she wrote.
She also describes an incident at Mar-a-Lago during which Donald Trump Jr. snatched half of a grilled cheese sandwich from her plate.
‘Ivanka scolded him, but Mr. Trump chimed in, “Don’t worry. She doesn’t need it. He’s doing her a favor.”
‘Conversely, he’d usually congratulate me if I’d lost weight,’ she wrote.
Lysandra also said that Ivanka told her she ‘hated’ a necklace she wore with her name in Arabic, and once said to her: ‘How does your Jewish boyfriend feel when you are having sex and that necklace hits him the face?
‘How can you wear that thing? It just screams, “terrorist.”‘
Lysandra claims that Jared and Ivanka tried to set her up on dates with people in their social circle and that despite her unkind words, Ivanka is generous.
Their friendship ended the day after Ivanka and Jared’s wedding, she says, when she complained that Ivanka had taken no interest in her new job, and Ivanka said something to her ‘like’ ‘Ly, I’m too busy for this s**t.’
A spokeswoman for Ivanka did not immediately respond with a comment in response to Lysandra’s claims on Tuesday morning.
A friend who is close to her told DailyMail.com: ‘Ivanka has been nothing but a genuinely sincere, smart and compassionate person throughout my years of knowing her.
‘It’s disappointing and sad to see people become so blinded by their partisanship that they go out of their way to attack those they know to be good people.
‘Her real friends know who she is and will always support her.’

Lysandra’s comments are of the same nature as those of Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a woman who claimed to be the First Lady’s former BFF and who shared unflattering recordings of Melania cursing before the election.
