Ivanka and Kellyanne.

It ain’t pretty.

A history of “sexist” comments about women may be dogging the Trump camp, but Sneed is told a female feud has erupted between Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of the Donald, and her father’s newest campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway.

• At issue: Conway admitting on the “The View” she had chided and scolded Donald Trump over the recent female fallout.

• The buck shot: Sneed is told Ivanka was irritated because “she knew no one scolds her father, least of all Kellyanne Conway,” a Trump insider said.


Follow @sneedlings“Ivanka is exceptionally concerned about her personal brand,” the source said. “Ivanka is a savvy businesswoman with a line of clothing, jewelry and shoes that she wants to protect; doesn’t believe her father is sexist; and is not happy with Conway’s comments,” the source added.

“These are two very strong-willed women who are now at a divide. Kellyanne has a 20-year history involved with the media. What should have been a very easy triangle of power comprised of Conway, campaign CEO Stephen Bannon and deputy campaign manager David Bossie has now become a two-legged stool.

“The poll numbers are going down and internal turmoil inside the campaign is causing everyone to blame someone else,” said the source citing the dismissals of Trump’s first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, and his replacement Paul Manafort.

“Kellyanne brought in a new narrative, and Trump didn’t stick to the script during the debate. At the end of the day, Trump had to execute and he didn’t.

“Trump had so many people advising him before the debates it became a mess. It became a series of 15-16 people sitting around a table with conflicting opinions fighting amongst themselves for positions — including two generals — and it became a debate session within the debate session,” the source added.

“It was a mess!”

Stay tuned.

Sneed is also told former FOX News chief Roger Ailes, who was advising Trump on his first debate performance, became frustrated by the chaos during the debate “training” phase — and has now bailed out of the process.

Let’s set the table: Cubs owner Tom Ricketts (the spoon), Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein (the fork), and Cubs president of business operations Crane Kenney (the knife) were planning a celebratory dinner Sunday night at the Momotaro Japanese Restaurant. “It signified a resolution to all the hard, ugly work on the business end of creating this great team,” said a Cubs source.

Suck it up!

Cubs manager Joe Maddon, whose motto “Try Not to Suck” has become emblazoned on Cubbie T-shirts, has a new fall motivational motto for playoff shirts: “Try not suck-tober.”

The Dancing Delilahs?

What a kick!

Watch for Illinois Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke, who is recovering from recent hip surgery, and movie maven Chaz Ebert, widow of the legendary Sun-Times movie columnist Roger Ebert, to kick up their very serious heels at a ballroom dance competition titled “Dancing with the Giordano Stars” at the Park West Oct. 6. The event will help benefit its educational outreach programs.
