Ivanka Was Just Asked About Her Father’s Sexual Abuse & Her Answer Was Outrageous

Great presidents are often remembered for their most famous quotes. Roosevelt’s “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself,” Obama’s “we are the change that we seek,” and JFK’s “ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country” are written down in history as defining statements from past presidents.

Donald Trump’s most famous quote is not quite so deep or inspirational.

‘I’m automatically attracted to beautiful women — I just start kissing them, it’s like a magnet. Just kiss. I don’t even wait. And when you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab ’em by the pussy.’

As the adult daughter of a U.S. president who works from the White House and within the government on international policy issues, Ivanka Trump stands alone. Other president’s daughters have campaigned with their fathers, stood as public representatives, but none have been given highly important jobs in the White House. As a representative of the Trump administration, she has been and will continue to be asked questions about her father and her father’s judgment that require an answer.

Ivanka Trump, however, feels that is “inappropriate.”

When asked by Peter Alexander of NBC News in an interview for The Today Show about the 19 women who have accused Trump of sexual misconduct (20 women if Trump’s first wife – Ivanka’s mother – is counted), Ivanka bristled and asserted her “right” to believe her father over his accusers.

‘I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father; I know my father, so I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.’

Ivanka is correct; she absolutely has the right to believe her own father and to support and defend him. However, that is precisely the reason (besides the fact that she has absolutely no experience in government or foreign policy and is not able to be approved for full security clearance) that she should never have been given a job in the White House.

If a daughter’s right to be partial to her father should be considered, so does the right of the people (and especially the women whose issues Ivanka purports to represent and fight for in government) to have a presidential administration that is not afraid to keep the president in check and consider his actions and decisions objectively.

If Ivanka Trump is unable to do so, she should resign her position immediately.
