NEW YORK (The Borowitz Report)—Ivanka Trump raised eyebrows during her testimony in a Manhattan courtroom on Wednesday when she appeared unable to remember her father's name.

Responding to a question from Judge Arthur F. Engoron about Donald J. Trump's business dealings, Ms. Trump stared blankly and said, "I'm sorry. I'm not familiar with that person."

Reminded that Donald J. Trump was, in fact, her father, she replied, "Huh. O.K., if you say so. I have to say that the name isn't ringing a bell for me right now."

As for the inner workings of her father's business, Ms. Trump testified that she had been too busy driving her own company into the ground to recall anything about his.

According to one observer at the trial, Ms. Trump's memory lapses were "concerning," but "she still seemed sharper than Eric."

Some on the left don't know the difference between news and satire.
