Ivanka Trump Got Booed. Sorry I Don’t Care?

Don’t get me wrong; Ivanka Trump is great. Really. She’s a beautiful, accomplished professional and in many ways a positive role model for young women with entrepreneurial ambition. She’s intelligent, she’s articulate, and she somehow balances motherhood with her new found role at the White House and her own business. I think the way that the left has treated her has been hypocritical. So many of them emphasized the importance of not judging Hillary Clinton by the actions of her husband but they turn around and try to bankrupt Ivanka because they don’t like her father.

Every audience is entitled to their opinions and expressing them as they see fit. That being said, I don’t think it was in good taste for the attendees of the German women’s forum that Ivanka Trump spoke at to start booing and hissing at her.

But if we’re being honest, I don’t feel bad for her, because I don’t think she deserves her role in the first place. She’s a great woman and has many virtues. At the end of the day, though, I just don’t think loving your dad qualifies you for a position in the White House. I understand that Trump’s tendencies come from his business background and a necessity to surround himself with competent people he can trust. I still think he made a tremendous lapse in judgment by giving his daughter and son-in-law the kind of access they have to the White House.

And I’ll be honest with you; the majority of my qualms stem from the fact that that that both Ivanka and her husband, Jared, have extremely liberal pasts. In all fairness, so does Trump. And to an extent I don’t know if we’ll ever know where Trump really stands, but I think that besides the unyielding praise for her father, Ivanka’s speech sounded a lot more like it belonged at the DNC and RNC.

I would be less annoyed by all of this if Ivanka and Jared were keeping Trump on track with his campaign promises but it appears that they’re doing the exact opposite.

I hate to sound like a conspiracy theorist but the fact of the matter is that Ivanka is a New York liberal that has been completely shunned by the majority of her network as a result of her father’s political career. I think Ivanka loves her father and loves her country, but could be easily be taking advantage of her father’s fondness of her to try to enact an agenda that appeals more to her friends in Manhattan than the men and women that actually voted for Trump.

Our country isn’t a family business- and that’s exactly the message that voters sent in their clear rejections of both the Clinton and Bush dynasties. I hope for all of our sakes Trump recognizes that sooner rather than later.

    thank you. i’m not political and wanted nothing to do with this election at all because the choices we had were embarrassing. and i’m not one to boo people but when i heard she was booed i didn’t care at all because i agree, she shouldn’t even be there in the position she’s in. as you said, our country is not a family business.

  • “When I told your father I was pregnant he told me to get an abortion. After you were born he told me he had never been more wrong about anything in his life.” I’m pro-life, and I always have been. My mom was starting law school at Brown when she got pregnant with me a year younger than I am now. My biological father...wasn’t exactly boyfriend of the year to put things lightly, and as an Ivy League grad the world was literally my mom’s oyster. She was extremely religious and went to a very conservative church where a child out of wedlock would turn her into an outcast. Because like every last professed pro-life Christian, she wasn’t perfect. But this wouldn’t be a sin that she could hide or bury. She had every reason to make that appointment, but she chose not to.

Fast forward 24 years, and a really good friend of mine got pregnant at the same age my mom did, and I assumed she would keep it. She was in a stable relationship and even told me she wanted to start a family soon. And according to almost every conversation we’d ever had on the subject, she was pro life too. But she was panicking, and almost overnight her entire perspective changed. Ironically enough, just days before I attended my first March for Life, a good friend of mine got an abortion.

And I won’t lie; I was disappointed. Because like most abortions, it wasn’t the result of some freak accident of properly used but failed birth control. She was being careless. And while I did my best to make the case for keeping it without pressuring her, I completely understood her decision and didn’t judge her for a minute. Because what my friend needed more than opinions or condemnation was my support.

I am pro life, and I always have been. My views didn’t change, but my attitude did. I realized that week, after taking frantic phone call after frantic phone call, that life happens in a lot of different directions. Life happening for my mom meant a child at 24 and dropping out of law school. Life happening for my friend meant an abortion. And part of being pro life — for me at least — is being there for people in your life even when it challenges you.
