A pretty inappropriate question

This is outrageous.

NBC News asked Ivanka Trump if she believes the women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual assault.

Trump replied, “I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter, if she believes the accusers of her father, when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters.”

What a fucking imbecilic thing to say. Of course journalists would be unlikely to ask other daughters that question, because other daughters are not high officials in their father’s presidential administrations. She’s got massive illegitimate power, because she is her father’s daughter, so no she fucking does not get to pull the Pained Daughter face when asked if she believes her father does indeed grab women by the pussy exactly as he said he did on that tape we all heard.

My god. The gall of these people. The entitlement.

“I believe my father. I know my father. So, I think I have that right, as a daughter, to believe my father,” the senior White House adviser continued in the interview.

Not when you work in his administration you don’t. Not when you accept a job you have zero qualifications for you don’t, not when you ignore rules against nepotism to do so you don’t.

At the World Assembly for Women in Japan last year, she said that “all to often, our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect. This takes many forms, including harassment, which can never be tolerated.”

And following Oprah Winfrey’s speech at the Golden Globes, the first daughter tweeted: “Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP!”

Exception for Daddy.
