Wheres Ivanka When We Need Her?

Where’s Ivanka When We Need Her?

Gail Collins MAY 5, 2017

Ivanka’s got a new female empowerment book, and Dad’s going to war against women. Great week, gang.

In just the last few days, the Trump administration has taken steps to restrict health insurance coverage for contraceptives, while bullying the House into passing legislation that could send insurance rates for maternal health care soaring. Meanwhile, the president picked a new official to disseminate the administration’s thoughts about public health, and it’s a woman who believes that abortions cause breast cancer.

Triple score for the extreme right. I believe in hockey they call that a hat trick.

And wait, there’s more: Trump’s reported choice to run the government’s programs on family planning is someone who doesn’t believe contraception works. And of course that House-passed health care bill is going to defund Planned Parenthood. The measure now goes to the Senate, where Republicans have put together a special 13-man committee to draft their version.

It was, at minimum, deeply ironic that while all this was happening, Ivanka Trump released a new book that calls on readers to fight against “barriers that disproportionately affect women” at work. Everybody who thinks unwanted pregnancies are a barrier, please raise your hands.

1. I remember when Patty Reagan attended the No-Nukes rallies and demonstrations during her father's presidency.

How Trumpian of Ivanka to cash-in on cheap talk. I fear she has become the face of feminism for her father's supporters. It saddens me to think of how many of them look to her as a modern day feminest role-model. Jared gets all the heavy duty assignments and what is Ivanka tasked with ?

2. Where's Ivanka When We Need Her?

She's never done anything but allegedly steal fashions from other designers, and not pay her laborers. She recently moved her shoe factory from China to Somalia, where she can employ 5 Ethiopians for the price of one Chinese worker.

Ivanka tRump is nothing but a woman-hating, complicit, lying, grifting con-woman just like her daddy's the ultimate street-hustling con-man.

The press unfortunately keeps praising & normalizing her and giving passes to her installed, treasonous, mentally deteriorating daddy-husband, because they're nothing but grifting, lying, POS who hate women and who care only for their rotten tRump family & brand.

4. Where she's always been

hiding out while daddy goes toxic on healthcare and otherwise screws America.

She's waiting until the storm passes so that she can safely emerge and mouth some platitudes.

Just go on being the predatory capitalist we all know you are and leave us alone, Ivanka.

5. You kidding? Ivanka's already on record, asking why Planned Parenthood can't break into two

parts, one for abortions and the other for everything else.

Plus, I can't see her in the Oval Office, with her new book open, intoning, "But Daddy, it says here on page 78 . . . . "

7. She's practicing her "indoor voice" since it's so influential on Daddy Warbucks.
