Two bits of news from this short clip:

1. Ivanka Trump is meeting with Al Gore today at Trump Tower. Her dad won't be there.

2. Ivanka is moving her family to DC.

So much for that "my kids will run my business for me" nonsense. Is Ivanka going to divest from Trump Incorporated, too?

And get how CNN reporter Jessica Schnieder covers the Donald Trump position on Climate Change, which he has called a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese.

JESSICA SCHNEIDER, CNN: Donald Trump talked about climate change as a hoax, manufactured by the Chinese, but of late he's shown a little latitude in that position. In fact, when he talked to the "New York Times" editorial board and reporters back just before Thanksgiving, he did say that he thinks there could be some connectivity between humans and climate change. so maybe a little bit of wiggle room in this position there, but Ivanka Trump meeting with Al Gore right here at Trump Tower today. Interestingly, this news comes as we're still wondering what role Ivanka Trump will play in her father's administration and we've learned Ivanka Trump and her husband, close Trump adviser as well, Jared Kushner, are house hunting in DC.

Looks like Jessica has gotten a memo from Corey Lewandowski on how to cover Trump lies and flip flops. Wiggle room? Latitude? And nevermind that Trump was going to give his business to his kids as a fake way to avoid conflict of interest charges. The smart child is moving to Washington! And psssst: much of the nut-wing of the conservative movement thinks she's a sekrit librul.

But she can always tweet her way around that:
