Ivanka Trump chose a very interesting time to reveal that she suffered from postpartum depression.

On Thursday’s The Dr. Oz Show, Trump shared that she suffered from “some level” of postpartum depression after the birth of each of her three children — Arabella, 6, Joseph, 3 and Theodore, 1.

“It was a very challenging, emotional time for me because I felt like I was not living up to my potential as a parent or as an entrepreneur and an executive,” Trump reportedly said on Oz’s daytime show. “And I had had such easy pregnancies, that in some way the juxtaposition hit me even harder.”

She continued, saying she felt compelled to speak out because “this is something that affects parents all over the country.” About 3 million American women suffer from postpartum depression, and thanks to Trump’s father, Donald Trump, and Senate Republicans proposing the Graham-Cassidy bill, those same women are at risk of looking their health care, along with the mental health care they would use to treat their depression.

Trump’s remarks seem very poorly timed, and people have very strong opinions about her announcement.

The people have spoken.
