Ivanka Trump Just Proved How Truly Clueless She Is



Sunday night’s Golden Globes was the beginning of a glorious and glamorous time in Hollywood – Awards Season. Oh yes, it’s that time where actors are honored for their portrayal of characters near and far from life as we know it, and the multitude of people that you’ll never see on screen that make it all possible. In case you missed it, many male careers ended this past year due to their sexual misconduct, and the women of Hollywood have taken a stand against this prevalent behavior and other disparities between men and women. Their initiative, #TimesUp! had the ballroom a sea of black as almost everyone present dressed in solidarity. During his opening monologue, host Seth Meyers made a joke about Oprah Winfrey, this year’s winner of the Cecil B. DeMille Award, running for President. I doubt he knew what he was starting.

“Oprah, in 2011, I told some jokes about our current president at the White House Correspondents Dinner — jokes about how he was unqualified to be president — and some have said that night convinced him to run. So if that’s true, I just want to say: Oprah, you will never be president! You do not have what it takes!” said Meyers.

This, coupled with Oprah’s outstanding acceptance speech for her award, created a storm online; swept up in the storm includes none other than Ivanka Trump.

Do I actually think Oprah will run for president? No. Out of all the celebrities that could be in contention for the position she is probably the most qualified, but just because we have a reality TV star filling the seat right now doesn’t mean celebrities will or should be lining up for their shot. But what is Ivanka thinking? Her father is the poster boy for the sexual misconduct and misogyny this initiative was created to speak out against.

Michael Wolff, the author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, spoke to MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell about what he believes Ivanka’s motives are for speaking in support of the #TimesUp! campaign and how this is in direct contrast to her relationship with her father.

“Who does she think her father is? What does she think this White House is about? Why does she think her father, was in fact, elected? She doesn’t get this in some phenomenal way, head in the clouds, just denial,” said Wolff. “Or it just goes to the heart of the White House, it doesn’t matter. She and Jared are New York Democrats and that doesn’t seem like a contradiction to Donald Trump, when in fact it apparently it doesn’t.”

Ivanka has the idea – everyone should stand together to take action so that men and women can and will be treated equally. The problem is that by standing beside her father, she is publicly agreeing with his values and messages, which are in direct opposition to the #TimesUp! movement. She can’t have it both ways.
