The anti-Trump Vanity Fair gleefully reports that The Donald is tuning out the voices of son-in-law Jared and daughter Ivanka.
As family they were supposed to be the next-loudest voices in the West Wing, The loudest, of course, it was expected would be the new president's.
Well, it's turning out - and very quickly - that the only voice in the West Wing's is that of the president. Essentially Jared is being ignored.
Also, his religious commitment not to work from sundown Fridays until sundown Saturday is being used by his father-in-law to operate around him. The immigration order was issued just around sundown last Friday.
As for Ivanka, things haven't turned out much better. Her supposed role was to be smoothing Dad's public rough edges and healing his negative record with females through feminist causes. Increasingly she has been in the background. The exception has been the photo-op of the sliver designer dress that turned off the world.
Worse than muted Jared, Ivanka might even have become a scapegoat. Some of us assigned that function to Kellyanne. But we are re-thinking that maybe The Donald is not above leveraging flesh and blood for his own gain.
It could be that the media will report a moving van outside the newly purchased home of Jared and Ivanka. They might get it that they have no place inside the beltway. New York City is their comfort zone.
Then there is the unthinkable: Back in Manhattan, will the two bruised egos turn on The Donald? That's unlikely. Money talks. And the sound of it always has been louder than the decibel level of Mr. Trump who went to Washington.
