Ivanka Trump: Woman of the Decade
Why Does the Left Hate Successful Women?
February 20, 2017
If you contrast first daughter Ivanka Trump with those outraged by her presence and power, you will not only discover one magnificent lady, you will see the reason that the left has been all but banished from political life. To appreciate the light that is Ivanka Trump, you have to examine the dark, petty world of the left. Nordstrom's, TJ Maxx and other retailers dropping her merchandise may not qualify as evil, they're just cowardly, and thus thick as thieves with the sniveling left.
If her father had not become President, Ivanka Turmp would still be an amazing woman, despite some political differences with hardcore conservatives. Unlike another daughter of wealth, Paris Hilton, Ivanka, thirty-five, has been driven and focused. She modeled briefly - yes, they hate her in part because she's beautiful - but, after graduating from the Wharton School of Business (alma mater of - guess who - her dad), she focused on creating wealth, as opposed to redistributing it in the tradition of such socialistic banshees as Elizabeth Warren. She served for a decade as an executive vice-president of the Trump Organization. She runs a foundation that encourages women to succeed in the finance world. Her idea of empowering women does not include dressing as human genitalia and dropping the f-bomb repeatedly at a national march. Therefore, to the left, she must be stopped.
Yeah, just try it! She is a mother of three and (arguably) a stand-in first lady when Melania is away, accompanying her father on a recent visit to the family of a slain Navy SEAL. In truth, she represents the feminist ideal that a woman can do it all. Only in the cuckoo world of the left could she be deemed controversial. Just consider: she identifies more as an independent than as a Republican, she has supported candidates from both parties in recent elections, and Chelsea Clinton is a close friend.
But because she serves an administration that endorses a "white nationalist agenda on the world stage" (according to the the ultra-liberal Slate.com), she is not only evil, her clothes are "boring and gaudy." Word of the day: childish! Apparently, Ivanka is just not edgy enough for the cool kids. Slate continues, calling her a "bland, white collar woman's idea of a powerful boss lady who enjoys comfortably enclosed bits of fun like a 'night out' and 'date nights.'" In other words, she's normal! That barb references a comment from famed author and commentator Fran Lebowitz that Donald Trump, whom all thinking people know is gaudy, is a poor person's idea of a rich person.Do you see how condescending the left is? They think we're all stupid. We know Trump is gaudy, but we accept his gold-plated faucets, reality-television mentality, and potty mouth because he alone is trying to save America from the fate of western Europe.
Therefore, because Ivanka stands with her father and her country, she must be destroyed, and not just professionally but personally. Remember the cowards who verbally attacked her on a commercial flight in December in the presence of her children? And then there are the artists who don't want their works hung on her walls (a woman of many facets and tastes, Ivanka is also an art lover).
Would anyone dare publicly abuse Caroline Kennedy or the Obama daughters? Not likely, but, sadly, we live in a world where the left sets the agenda for social discourse, as in declaring bullying a cause du jour. Conservative/patriotic women always wear giant bullseyes on the backs.
The left's idea of a great woman is Elizabeth Warren. The Massachusetts senator, of course, was recently silenced on the Senate floor by Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. She took her blather elsewhere, to great acclaim. And yet somehow she is the courageous one. A social media campaign in her honor has spawned the catchphrase "Nevertheless she persisted." Giant eyeroll here.
Speaking of social media, one Facebook meme features Ivanka, with words hailing her as the future first female President. That may or may not happen, but she sets a greater example for women, girls - heck, for anyone with ambition - before breakfast than Lena Dunham and Madonna have in the past twenty years. My only complaint: she is too graceful and classy. I wish she had more of her dad's street-fighter persona. But I trust her judgment. The mean girls of the left will never let up - it's all personal with them. Just her smile and a tilt of the head sets them off. Nevertheless she persists!
