“Yes, yes, and yes,” a Vanity Fair reporter told MSNBC’s Nicole Wallace when asked if “Trump women” are “numb,” “dead inside,” and “paid off” for tolerating President Donald Trump.

“They do not see President Trump the way that all of us see President Trump,” Senior Reporter Emily Jane Fox told Wallace Thursday when asked how "Trump women" could overlook disparaging remarks about the credibility of porn actresses like Stormy Daniels made by Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani.

Wallace: "Let me ask you, you know more about the Trump women, the Trump family than anyone. What do they do on a day like today? Are they the most stoic human beings?

“Are they numb, are the dead inside, are they paid off? What’s their deal?”

Fox: “Yes, yes, and yes.

“But, I think they do not see President Trump the way that all of us see President Trump. They have such a distorted image of who he is. They don’t have the kind of reaction that we do. It’s almost some sort of trick…”

Fox then attacked the Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, declaring that she isn’t “a rational person” – like the MSNBC’s Wallace:

Wallace: “But, they’re mothers now. They seem to be raising nice kids. How do they wall it off?”

Fox: “You’re looking at this as a rational person. But, I have written this a million times: Ivanka Trump is the most masterful compartmentalizer that America has, maybe, ever seen.

“And, so, her ability to separate something like this out from, then, going and sitting in the West Wing and doing her job, or going and visiting her father in the Oval Office.

“She’s able to separate those things in a way that your or I, probably, can’t understand.”
