Ivanka Trump is under fire in the press over the migrant family separation crisis, despite the fact that she reportedly lobbied her father to do something about it behind the scenes.

CNN ran a column called "Ivanka's Deafening Silence," and the liberal site Vox featured a piece titled "Ivanka Trump, Children's Advocate, Has Nothing to Say About Family Separation."

MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski also denounced President Trump's daughter for her apparent inaction and called her tone-deaf for sharing a photo of her daughter on social media amid the crisis.

Comedian and actress Wanda Sykes replied by calling Ivanka Trump a "b****" and saying "f*** you" after Mrs. Trump thanked her father for amending the policy. 

CNN's Ana Navarro went after the president's daughter Wednesday, saying comedian Samantha Bee "should have full-stopped at 'feckless.'" 

On "America's Newsroom," Fox News media analyst Howard Kurtz said this is part of an ongoing pattern of pundits going after the first daughter for not publicly criticizing her father.

He noted that she had brought him pictures of young children who had been separated at the border from their families and pressed him to change the policy, which contributed to him signing an executive order on Wednesday allowing children to stay with parents caught crossing the border illegally.

"She chose to engage in private persuasion rather than public virtue signaling. My sources say that reflects her style of preferring to try to get some action as opposed to just joining the Washington blather," Kurtz said.

He argued that making hot-button issues about Ivanka has become a go-to move for the media -- particularly female pundits on the left -- who see her as more socially moderate and liberal.

"Therefore, they expect every time one of these controversies comes up, for her to go public and rip her father. They'll never be happy unless she does that."
