Women's Panel Not Buying What Ivanka's Selling (UPDATED)

Ivanka "Complicit" Trump, eldest daughter and de-facto First Lady for sociopath and misogynist Donald "Rump" Trump got a rude awakening from women in Berlin at a W20 Summit panel on women's entrepreneurship when she laughably called her sexual predator father a "champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive," which is certainly true in her nepotistic case. The audience booed and hissed as she attempted to portray her father, who has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment, as supportive of women in the workplace. When the skeptical moderator responded, "some attitudes toward women your father has publicly displayed in former times might leave one questioning whether he's such an empowerer for women," Princess Ivanka prompted laughter when she responded that her father believed in "the potential of women and their ability to do the job as well as any man." No doubt only if she's at least a "9." (Insert self- written joke: "He likes women so much, he's got three wives to show for it" =rimshot=.) Further proof she's inherited the delusion gene from the old goat. Sad!

Any notions that she might be more than merely an enabler for President Pussygrabber's reactionary policies and retrograde view of women have disappeared, as they should. As John Oliver reminded us  on Sunday, Princess Ivanka wrote in her book, "The Trump Card: Playing To Win in Work And Life":
"Perception is more important that reality. If someone perceives something to be true, it is more important than if it is in fact true. This doesn’t mean you should be duplicitous or deceitful, but don’t go out of your way to correct a false assumption if it plays to your advantage."
Her daddy's girl alright.

UPDATE:  More evidence she's daddy's girl in her business practices. ("Made in America! China!")

If I didn't believe better of Chancellor Merkel I would have thought she set Ivanka up for that. How did she even dare to sit up there with at least two international towers of accomplishiment and think she had anything to contribute! What a fraud! P.E.C.

FM - she's just as phony as the old goat. It might take folks and the media to see beyond the facade, but there's no there there as far as an empathetic core.

Ms. Cake - I think overseas the entire Trump clan is increasingly looked upon with a mix of alarm, revulsion and disbelief as they've focused on this new American reality. I think the old goat is seen as someone so unfit and ignorant that he can be "had." Sitting in with foreign leaders, it's almost like she's acting as Daddy's baby sitter (along with Jared); when she's on the loose, she's certainly parlaying her position to enrich herself and her family. It's disgusting beyond words.

It's almost a role reversal. Unruly toddler misbehaves (putting it mildly) and parent comes to his defense. The parent needs as much help as the child. Just my 2 cents.

DNY - Exactly. Unfortunately, when half your genes come from the old goat, and you've been raised in a cocoon, you're not likely to have dissimilar behavior/ ethics. Thanks for commenting.
