Ivanka Trump inexplicably gives convention speech mostly aligned with Hillary Clinton’s views
Ivanka spent significant time making the case for why women should receive equal pay, highlighting the wage discrepancy which the Republican Party officially refuses to admit exists. She then went on to more specifically state that motherhood is even more of a discriminatory factor than gender in the wage gap.
These are issues that Donald Trump has never once addressed during his campaign and doesnt appear to believe in at all, as hes spent his political career alternately claiming wages are either too high or too low in general, but hes never addressed any womens rights issue. It was enough to make one wonder if Ivanka Trump mistakenly thought she was giving a speech at the Democratic National Convention instead. She supports her fathers candidacy personally, but she doesnt appear to support anything that he stands for politically.
hah...is she trying to get people to vote for Hillary?
There's an article I read arguing that people need to stop expecting Ivanka to save us from her father:
Ivanka Trump Is Not Going to Save Us From Her Father by Jessica Pressler
But it must be said: Ivanka is not going to save us. She is not, as the Latin-American and Mexican version of Marie Claire recently begged, going to stop her father by talking to him. If she has tried to get him to tone it down, as reports have suggested, it should be pretty clear by now that she has failed. She is not, as a piece of fanfiction in the Times recently postulated, secretly donating to Hillary. She did not miss the registration deadline for the Republican primary on purpose. She is not, after 34 years of control, going to lose her cool and rebel. As Ivanka has told us repeatedly: Trumps play to win. And thats what she and her husband, Jared Kushner, seem to be exclusively focused on now. Ivanka has been an increasingly visible presence on the trail and is expected to play a starring role at the Republican National Convention. Recently, Senator Bob Corker went so far as to suggest that shed be a great running mate for her father, adding that hed never met a more composed, brilliant, beautiful-in-every-way person. (This too is wishful thinking sorry, Republicans, she wont save you either.)
Trump and cohorts are all of the above!
which is why watching the media fawn over his family makes me sick to my stomach. There's an ugliness inside them they can't hide.
His wife and children can look as superficially "beautiful" and put together as possible, but the bottom line is that they're supporting a racist, xenophobic monster.
Look at this disgusting man on stage, listen to his words, contemplate what he would foment in power, and stop being so precious.
sitting there dumbfounded?
It may take a little while to dawn on them, but they just nominated a New York Democrat who manages to sell huge piles of crap!
Oh - but don't get complacent - he could still win!
If that is what she truly believes, why is she trying to get her father elected?????????
in which I expect at the DNC convention. If Republicans buy into this speech it will be different than all the policies the Republicans has been running since Reaganomics started. This did not change my opinion of a obnoxious A-hole he has proven over and over and it still does not give him the qualifications to be president. Hillary is offering the same and is most qualified to be president.
Synergy, anyone? I swear, these people are worse than the Kardashians at separating the gullible from their money.
