In the 30-minute segment titled “CNN Special Report: First Daughter: Ivanka Trump,” Gloria Borger interviewed the president-elect’s family about Ivanka’s childhood, her relationship with Jared Kushner and her strong business acumen.


Minutes after the interviewed started airing, CNN’s viewers got on Twitter to voice their complaints the special was being aired on a civil rights holiday.

Some were also angry that the network was “normalizing” Donald Trump and his family.
