#EndorseThis: Ivanka Trump Is Not Your Secret Progressive Buddy

Share
Ivanka Trump

She’s the Official Feminist of the Trump administration, the “nicest, smartest, best-smelling” member of the Trump family, especially compared with her brothers “Sonny and Fredo” — and Samantha Bee is willing to concede all of that to Ivanka Trump. But she warns liberals against fantasizing that Ivanka, nominated to the Great Feminists in Feminism Herstory Hall of Lady Fame, is their “secret progressive buddy.”

As the Full Frontal host observes, Ivanka’s press clippings suggest she is lobbying her loony dad for sanity and decency. She reportedly cares about climate change, amid the climate denial infesting her father’s cabinet (and his brain). She met with environmentalist actor Leonardo DiCaprio! But meeting with Leo doesn’t prove much except that Ivanka was “a teenager in the 90s.”

And let’s not forget her $500 billion child-care scheme, which is mostly another tax subsidy to wealthy families, or her dodgy business deals around the world, including that vacant Trump Tower in Baku, built by a crony of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard.

“People are comforted by the thought of a progressive feminist in the White House,” snarks Bee. “If you wanted that, you should have voted for it.”

Point taken.

    What I want to know is, what idiot ever imagined that Ivanka would be anything other than another vain, selfish, tone-deaf Trump, perhaps slightly less deranged and insecure and and slightly more discreet than daddy dearest, but only slightly?
    One would like to think that an intelligent and even very minimally “progressive” woman would have serious issues with the way her father treated her mother, but then “progressive” is not a word I would apply in connection with any of the Trump clan other than in describing the growth of dishonesty and just plain evil in the government they run.

      The trumps do not have it in their genetics to belong to the tribe and work for the salvation of the tribe. While the tribe was asleep, they steal all their food and clothing.

        Never heard it put that way before, but most apt (and more concise than mine) :>)
