First Daughter and official White House employee Ivanka Trump is on a clear public relations mission to normalize Donald Trump’s nightmarish presidency and humanize its image.
Ivanka has been trotting the globe in her tireless effort, even making an appearance at a women’s conference to defend her admitted sex offender father’s record and attempt to create an illusion that President Donald Trump cares about women’s rights (or any human rights). Thankfully, people are not buying it. Actress Debra Messing recently used her time on stage at an awards show to slam Ivanka directly for promoting President Trump at the expense of women.
While receiving an award for “excellence in media” at the 2017 GLAAD Media Awards, the Will & Grace actress urged Ivanka to ”stop blindly defending your father.” Said Messing, “There is someone I would like to make a direct appeal to this evening, Ivanka, girlfriend, what are you doing? C’mon, it’s me, Deb. Let’s talk for a second, one Jewish mother to another. It is not enough to simply say that women’s issues are important to you. It’s time to do something. You could change the lives of millions of women and children just by telling your dad stories about real people who are suffering. Don’t let him separate immigrant mothers from their American-born children. Don’t let him take health care away from women who need it. Don’t allow him to make trans kids like Gavin fight in court for their basic human dignity.” Do you think Ivanka got the message?
