Ivanka Trump’s involvement in the Group of 20 Summit was quite strange. There she was, sitting right among Chinese President Xi Jinping, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Turkey’s Recep Tayyip Erdogan and German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Despite having absolutely no qualifications, other than the blood of monarch Trump coursing through her veins, she sat next to the most important people in the world.
I obviously have a great love and appreciation of jewelry, thanks to my mother, much to the dismay of both my father and my boyfriends.
She sat there for a while, twirling her hair, admiring the ingredients on her bottle of water, and recalling the size of the Bazooka gum bubble she blew in the playground earlier. She didn’t speak. That was probably the best part of her strange presence. After all, when she opened her mouth at a Berlin event a few weeks ago, she was booed by the audience.
And it was very strange.
Michael McFaul, the United States Ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama, said Ivanka Trump at the G20 was unusual.
This is strange, he tweeted. Very strange. CNN article
I like very strong guys. Successful guys. Not necessarily financially.
The harder you work, the luckier you get. I’m a big believer in that.
We must fight for ourselves, for our rights not just as workers but also as women,
Excuse me while I vomit. If she thinks she knows a single iota of what its like to be 99.999% of women in the world, she is wrong. I’m sorry, but when a child born into such massive wealth, who has never had to work a day in their life, who has had everything handed to them on a silver platter, has the arrogance to dispense their guidance, I am utterly baffled.
I pretty much only drink water, Tazo passion tea, or coffee with half and half, and it’s an ongoing joke in the office that I never have less than three glasses of water and some form of tea or coffee in front of me.
Her books do good in sales. A lot better than mine. So who am I to criticize Ivanka or the legions of fans who buy her books?
If she was a crusader for ALL women, she should improve the working conditions for those that make her clothes. The women working at Ivanka’s factories in Indonesia make $173 a month. Such an amount is the absolute lowest you can pay workers in Indonesia.
One of these impoverished workers is named Alia. She makes such little money, that she has to live in a small near the factory. She can only afford to travel to see her children once a month.
When Alia was told the gist of Ivanka Trump’s new book on women in the workplace, she burst out laughing, The Guardian reported. Her idea of work-life balance, she said, would be if she could see her children more than once a month. HuffingtonPost article
The only thing she owns that hasn’t been handed to her, is her looks. That lone possession was stripped from her as she sat under a surgeon’s knife. Probably because of her father’s ridicule, but Ivanka did not like who she was. Ivanka didn’t like her double chin and her droopy eyes. She cried as she stared into the mirror. She despised the ugly duckling she beheld. But to every other woman, Ivanka implores them to love their bodies.
I have always admired women that have a strong sense of self, complemented by femininity.
Practice what you preach, you phony!
English suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst routinely endured hunger strikes and violence, so that women could vote. Anna Cooper was born a slave, yet still managed to become the fourth African-American woman to earn a Ph.D. Her book about black feminism was opposed by a lot more than who read it. How about Amelia Bloomer who published the first newspaper for women in 1849? Ivanka doesn’t deserve to speak these women’s names! Do you think any of these liberating feminists would pay other women pennies for making their clothes? A salary so low, they can’t even see their children!
Shame on you, Ivanka!
Ivanka Trump might be the last person to be empowering women. Don’t be fooled, like those suckers who buy her books. Ivanka wants every woman to be empowered, as long as the “empowerment” doesn’t cost her a nickel.
