Journalism: Reporters Demand to Know if Trump Grandson Built White House Lego Model After Ivanka Speech Remark

There’s an old saying in journalism, “If your mother says she loves you, check it out.” But sometimes that humorous reminder to verify stories can be taken to childish extremes. WNYC-FM/AM reporter Andrea Bernstein on Friday demanded the White House confirm Ivanka Trump’s remark at the beginning of her RNC speech on the South Lawn of the White House Thursday night that her then 3-year-old son Joseph built a Lego model of the White House by himself that President Trump displays in the Oval Office. Other reporters claimed the story was a lie, prompting a White House rebuke.
Ivanks said, “When Jared and I moved with our three young children to Washington, we didn’t exactly know what we were in for. But our kids, our kids loved it from the start. My son Joseph promptly built grandpa a Lego replica of the White House. The President still displays it on the mantle in the Oval Office right over there. So that he can show world leaders, just so they know he has the greatest grandchildren on earth. I agree.”
