Karlie Kloss, the 26-year-old model and entrepreneur who is extremely married to Jared Kushner’s brother, Joshua, reiterated in an interview recently that having a pair of haunted dolls for in-laws can be a challenge. In an interview published in British Vogue on Monday, Kloss, a Democrat, was asked to comment on being related by choice to Jared and Ivanka. Her response was: “It’s been hard. But I choose to focus on the values that I share with my husband, and those are the same liberal values that I was raised with and that have guided me throughout my life.” Kloss has responded to versions of this question before, more or less with the same liberal tact. She told Vogue last year, “I’ve chosen to be with the man I love despite the complications. It’s frustrating, to be honest, that the spotlight is always shifted away from my career toward my relationship. I don’t think the same happens in conversations with men.”

While Kloss has said little in the way of praise or criticism for the Trump family, Ivanka appears to extremely approve of and support her sister-in-law. In March, the First Daughter posted a video of herself summoning excitement for the premiere of Project Runway, which Kloss hosts. Notably, Kloss did not respond to or acknowledge the video.
