The media and public have scrutinized Ivanka Trump more than President Trump’s own wife Melania. Perhaps due to a combination of her established public image and the divisiveness of her father’s presidency, Ivanka has received repeated verbal public floggings.Yes, and yes. But the Chinese know a good thing when they see her: The ‘Goddess’ Yi Wan Ka: Ivanka Trump Is a Hit in China
She’s either too feminist or not enough. Her family’s presence in Washington DC causes trouble, but the Obamas are quiet neighbors. She shouldn’t get a title in the White House because only Bill Clinton was allowed to hire family members. If she bakes cookies with her children for Purim, she’s making a political statement through her religious beliefs.
At first glance it seems such double standards are due to her conservatism, but Ivanka Trump is more politically liberal than her father, whose policies, statements, and history trend more moderate liberal: a fan of big government spending, entitlements, government-run health care, an abortion flip-flopper, serial adulterer (sex-positive!), and LGBT-friendly. Is liberal ideology that fluid, or are liberals just so rabid they’ll eat their own?
When Wang Ge, a business school student, wakes up, she often asks herself, “What would Ivanka do?”Ivanka Trump’s Elderly Neighbor RIPS Into Liberal Protesters: Get the F*** Outta Here! (video at link)
That would be Ivanka Trump, the eldest daughter of President Trump, a woman Ms. Wang has never met but worships.
. . .
Ms. Wang keeps photos of Ms. Trump on her iPad. She counsels burned-out friends to read Ms. Trump’s self-help tips (“Find strength in others” and “Be an optimist”). And she models her day on Ms. Trump’s, waking at 6 a.m. to increase productivity and setting aside at least a half-hour to read.
“She’s pretty, she has her own career, she’s hardworking and she has a beautiful family,” said Ms. Wang, 26, a student at Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business in Beijing. “She inspires me.”
Not all heroes wear capes. Some wear white collared short sleeves and are pissed you’re interrupting his rice pudding and Matlock. Such was the case when Ivanka Trump’s 82-year old neighbor stood up to the leftists protesting outside of her house. More specifically, the Queer Dance Party for Climate Justice.Showing that they understand neither climate nor justice. How would the press take it if a bunch of 2nd amendment activists held a rally at the Obama's house in the same neighborhood? According to Scarlett Johansson, Ivanka Trump Isn't Just "Complicit," She's "Cowardly"
No, seriously, that’s what they called themselves…
. . . While Ivanka Trump has tried to position herself as an advocate for women in the White House, Johansson finds her performance so far wanting and was disappointed she wasn't willing to publicly disagree with her father.Cat fight!
“It’s such an old-fashioned concept,” Johansson said. “Powerful women often get concerned with this idea that they’re going to be seen in this unforgiving light. Screw that. It’s so old-fashioned...it’s so uninspired and actually really cowardly. And I was so disappointed by that interview she gave yesterday.”
“She has an opportunity to really make a big impact just by being vocal," she continued. "I’ve met her several times in the past, and she’s a very well spoken, smart, intelligent woman...the whole situation baffles me.”
