If there’s one thing we know to be true about Donald Trump, it’s that he’s a disgusting sexual predator who delights in forcing himself on women. He’s done it repeatedly over his life, and dozens of women have accused him of it.
“You know I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — I just start kissing them. It’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait… And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything… grab them by the pussy.”
And yet, when his daughter, Ivanka, was asked whether or not she believes the allegations against her daddy, the First Daughter got upset, telling NBC reporter Peter Alexander:
“I think it’s 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. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father, I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”
Oh well, so much for empowering women.
Shortly after the interview aired on the Today show, there was a strong reaction on social media:
Oh princess you gave up any right to be offended when you took the job in the White House. You are not royalty, you work for the American people.

Crude and rude? No. It’s a legit question of a Sr Advisor to the President whose personal lawyer admitted to paying a porn star for her silence during the election. Also appropriate given the crude & rude words of POTUS himself. Your hypocrisy is exactly what we expect. pic.twitter.com/Q6Dob8Vz8W

Once again, Ivanka brings to mind a famous quote :
"It is difficult to get someone to understand something when their livelihood depends upon them not understanding it."

Like her father, there is one thing that Ivanka excels at: Hypocrisy.
