Hmm, okay. But I hope Ivanka understands that as she positions herself as a crusader for women, the Left will never, ever accept her in this role, because of her father.
She’ll need her dad’s steel, because she is in for unrelenting, scorching vituperation from armies of nasty, angry people. What she got in Germany was nothing compared to what’s coming.
The right will tolerate, albeit unhappily, her social moderation because of who she is and because, contrary to rumor, conservatives are just much more tolerant than liberals. But if she thinks she can reason with the left or mitigate their hatred and awful behavior, which will be stoked by the media, she’s in for a rude awakening.
From an article about Ivanka in the New York Times:
In the two interviews last week, Ms. Trump talked about unleashing the economic potential of women — some of her phrases sounding uncannily like those of Hillary Clinton — and effused about finding a new role model in Eleanor Roosevelt, whose autobiography she is reading. Ms. Trump is reaching out to influential women like Ginni Rometty, chief executive of IBM, and Mary T. Barra, the C.E.O. of General Motors, and studying up on child care policy. She waved away questions about her motivations for embracing feminist themes.
“Suddenly, after my father declared his candidacy, it became that all the things that I was doing that I was praised for, the same people, the critics, viewed them through this different lens,” she said. “Somehow, all the same things they applauded me for as a millennial, as a female entrepreneur, were now viewed very cynically as opportunistic.”
