Twitter is having their way with Ivanka Trump following the first daughter’s tweet about Women’s History Month. To be fair, coming from almost any other source, the tweet was mostly fine. However, considering, well...everything about her father, the message was met with some well-placed online heat.
For a self-described champion of women, Ivanka has done little to empower or enable women during her 14 months as one of her father’s top advisors. There’s also the fact that Ivanka’s own mother, Ivana, testified in 1989 that her ex-husband and our current president made her “feel violated during sex,” and yet Ivanka continues to defend him against that and other allegations.
It was just days ago that she defended her father against such claims in an interview with NBC’s Peter Alexander. When Alexander asked if she believed her father’s accusers, Ivanka said it was a “pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated there’s no truth to it.”
Quite understandably, a lot of Twitter users are finding it hard to ignore the hypocrisy of Ivanka's comments given the context in which they were delivered.
