This is either very interesting and we should hear more or poorly-marked nonsense that is frankly irresponsible. https://t.co/EXz93AbdYu

Well, this is, um …
Following a post at BuzzFeed about Ivanka’s response to her father’s remarks on that infamous 2005 tape:

BuzzFeed founder and CEO Jonah Peretti had this to say:
Surprised Ivanka would be shocked by lewd language. I met her once & she casually said: "I've never seen a mulatto cock, but I'd like to!" https://t.co/WrgCoM0MGK

Is Peretti telling the truth? Misremembering Ivanka’s remarks? Or just making it up entirely? We may never find out. But one thing’s for sure: We wouldn’t mind being able to unread that.

BuzzFeed CEO: I Heard Ivanka Trump Talk About “Mulatto Cocks” https://t.co/AhmPwL2mFF

More from BuzzFeed (note: graphic language):
Peretti said the encounter with Ivanka occurred at a Manhattan dive bar called Tropical some about 10 years ago with roughly five other people present.
“She was saying how she first said she had never seen an uncircumcised cock and then she said, ‘I’ve never seen a mulatto cock. There’s lots of cocks I’ve never seen,’ or something like that,” Peretti said.
“Of course, it was memorable just because of the use of the lewd language and racist language. It was also memorable being in the environment of being… in New York, sometimes liberal and progressive people make comments meant as jokes and not necessarily earnest. I didn’t know how to take it.”
