Ms Eva Jinek, the Dutch TV-presenter who sat down with 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate Ms Hillary Clinton this week, is known for daring to disagree with her guests.
European politicians who come to Amsterdam to plug an idea or a book know this and it is probably written in their notes whenever someone sits down with Ms Jinek.
In the case of Ms Clinton, it looks like someone might have forgotten to warn her because Ms Jinek opened quite the can of worms when asking about the idea of Ivanka Trump being President of the United States one day (a rumour that was written in Michael Wolff's “Fire and Fury”).
During the interview, former US Secretary of State Ms Clinton sat down with Dutch public broadcasting company KRO-NCRV when she was told the daughter of the current US president, Ms Ivanka Trump, would like to become the first female President of the United States.
"That’s not going to happen," Ms Clinton said.

At this point, it gets interesting because you can see that Ms Clinton does not expect the interviewer to disagree with her on this.
Ms Jinek responds: "No?"
Ms Clinton: "No," whilst shaking her head…
Ms Jinek: “How Come?”
Ms Clinton: "Well, we don’t want any more inexperienced Trumps in the White House."
To Ms Clinton’s continued surprise host Ms Eva Jinek then goes on: “I think that normally I would like to believe what you’re saying but I’ve also learned that after these elections that things that we don’t expect to happen sometimes do happen….”
Ms Clinton: “Well, that’s true, but you know, fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, shame on me. And I think the American people have seen for themselves what happens when a reality-TV candidate wins."
"I really believe there’s an enormous amount of pent-up energy to take the country back away from the Trump administration."
