Good Gravy, How Can So Many Members of One Family Be This Dense?
In case you missed it, Oprah brought down the house with her speech at the Golden Globes on Sunday. Her message was one of “take no shit”. She referenced the #MeToo movement, and encouraged women and girls everywhere to stand up and be heard, to own their truth. She also mentioned Time’s Up, the initiative started by powerful women in Hollywood to combat sexual assault, abuse, and harassment. Social media went wild, people all over the world were moved by her speech, and it even got tongues wagging about a possible presidential run in 2020. But in a STUNNING display of cluelessness, Ivanka Trump sent out a tweet supporting Oprah and her empowering message. Does … does Ivanka know who her dad is? Serious question.
Ivanka Trump jumped on the Oprah bandwagon a day late, and honestly, she should’ve let that wagon just pass her on by. Lord, how anyone can be this dense is beyond me.

Oh, Time’s Up, Ivanka? Is that right? And who, exactly, would it be up for? Sure, Hollywood has a MASSIVE problem. But, hmmmm how do I say this … you know what, let me just quote a serial sexual abuser’s words, they say it better than I ever could.
“You know, I’m automatically attracted to beautiful — 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. You can do anything.”
Now, not to make things super awkward or anything, but … that’s your dad. So weird, right? Your dad. The one you campaigned for and defended and work for currently (doing god knows what, seriously, what is your job?). One Donald J. Trump, the one your mom said violently raped her, and the one who stands accused of sexual assault and/or rape by no fewer than 19 women. So, Time’s Up for dad? Is that how it works?
Thankfully, Twitter was not here for Ivanka’s “Woman of the People” bullshit. Do not try to ride Oprah’s coattails, you will get dragged all to hell and back.
Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father's accusers.https://t.co/A8HCVa715v

This is the most hypocritical, clueless statement in her regrettable time in the WH. Your father has a trail of victims and supported Roy Moore, Ivanka. YOU are indeed part of the problem Ivanka. #complicit

Could you include these women, @IvankaTrump?

Honestly, the hubris of this woman trying to join a movement that was, arguably, started because of her serial sexual abuser father is astounding. The unmitigated GALL. Not today, Ivanka. Not ever.
