Ivanka Trump Attempted to Support ‘Time’s Up’ Movement and Twitter Went Ballistic
Ivanka Trump Apparently Forgot Who Her Father Was, Twitter Gave Her A Reminder
Unless you’ve been cut off from society for the past couple days, you’re probably aware of the show-stealing speech given by Oprah Winfrey at the Golden Globes Sunday night. It was so buzzworthy an immediate call for her to throw her name into the 2020 presidential race came from many quarters.
A large focus of her speech was the Me Too movement and the still-increasing number of men being outed as sexual predators. So, if you are actively working with or supporting an alleged sexual assaulter many times over, you would probably want to keep your head down and away from this incredible moment.
Unless you are Ivanka Trump, apparently.
The daughter of admitted sexual assaulter, Republican Donald Trump, took to Twitter to praise the speech by Oprah and offer a message of unity.

As you might notice from the all-powerful Ratio on Ivanka Trump’s tweet, the public was not particularly amused. And quite a few people, including some celebrities, weighed in on the hypocrisy.

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

Honestly Ivanka, it took a staggering level of heinous idiocy for you to post this tweet.

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

Times up for who? Your predatory father?

I’m sorry @IvankaTrump but unless you wish to call out your own father for his taped admission to assaulting women, your desire to join the sisterhood cannot be taken with any validity…I know it’s difficult but #TIMESUP for your dad too.

This is very much like your father demanding allegiance to the National Anthem…. and he doesn't even know the words. Where does your family come from? Some weird planet, with a portal that will allow you to escape once our planet is annihilated via nuclear war?

This isn’t the first time a Donald Trump offspring has stepped into a steaming pile of hypocrisy when it comes to commenting on sexual misconduct and it probably won’t be the last.
The least self-aware children in the world keep acting like nothing is wrong here. And as long as this ridiculousness continues from Ivanka Trump, Twitter will quickly remind her of her blatant hypocrisy.
