The decade's most triggering comedy
On Saturday, Ivanka Trump tweeted a picture of the dog she had bought for her eight-year-old daughter Arabella and anti-Trump advocates pilloried her for one reason: the dog was completely white.
Ivanka Trump wrote, “Meet Winter, Arabella’s birthday dream come true and the newest member of the Kushner family!”
Newsweek noted that Claude Taylor, who worked on the 1992 and 1996 Bill Clinton presidential campaigns and as White House volunteers director, tweeted, “The dog will fit right in. #itswhiteenough.” He was echoed by actress Yvette Nicole Brown, who is black, tweeting, “Good thing it’s a white dog. Your dad hates the blacks.”
American actress Nancy Lee Grahn tweeted, “How darling. I see you skipped a rescue and went straight to an Aryan breeder. Does it sit and sieg heil yet?” Rock musician and TV producer Jared Kotler snapped, “Pro tip: when everyone hates you for being a spoon fed nothing grifter who’s full of s***, an advisor to the president who doesn’t advise, when you want to seem human and get a dog, maybe a shelter dog would show humanity. But all white and blue eyes is on brand. F*** off.”
By now, Ivanka must be thoroughly used to the vitriol directed at her from members of the Left; here are a few examples of how they have taunted her or slammed her since her father began his presidential tenure:
December 2016: A man accosted Ivanka and her three children on a Jet Blue flight, yelling at her and taunting her three children. According to TMZ, Ivanka was leaving JFK, seated in the coach area of the plane, when the man, apparently carrying his child, started yelling at her, “Your father is ruining the country.” He ranted, “Why is she on our flight. She should be flying private!” Various feminists then endorsed the man’s verbal attack.
March 2017: MSNBC host Chris Matthews compared Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner to the infamous and vicious sons of the Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein, saying:
Do you think this bothers the country to have sort of a Romanov royal family running the place? Because let me just say, you know, we kid, I kid about everything, but Uday and Qusay working for Saddam Hussein. You couldn’t go to a restaurant and have eye contact with one of those guys without getting killed. These people are really powerful. Imagine getting into a fight in the office with Jared or Ivanka – they have enormous power, and they’re always going to be there.
September 2017: Various feminists, after learning that Ivanka had post-partum depression after each of the births of her three children, taunted her by telling her to “suffer,” wishing her “misery,” or accusing her of lying.
March 2018: Chelsea Clinton opined that scrutinizing Ivanka for decisions made by the White House was perfectly okay with her, telling Stephen Colbert, ““I think anyone who works for the president should expect to be scrutinized for whatever decisions not only he or she is making, but whatever decisions the White House is making on any given day.”
May 2018: Left-wing political pundits, celebrities, and news organizations targeted Ivanka for posting a photo of herself embracing her 2-year-old son.
