Those on the Left continue to lash out at president’s daughter — wife, mom, business executive.
It is now increasingly clear that hysteria from the Left over the presidency of Donald J. Trump extends to his immediate family — most notably his eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, a supporter of multiple charities and a devoted wife and mother of three young children.
A former vice president in the Trump organization and an accomplished businessperson in her own right, Ivanka Trump oversaw dozens of big-ticket projects and has negotiated deals such as the Old Post Office building in Washington, D.C., and the Doral Hotel & Spa in Miami — traveling to Florida just days after giving birth to her first child to secure that sale.
Still, unhinged liberals see her as a target because of their fanatical opposition to her father. Her response? She is stoic, graceful, and determined under pressure to move forward in a positive manner.
“I learned a long time ago that I can’t control the opinions of others or what they project on me,” she told Fast Company several months ago in an interview. “All I can do is live my life, and I’ve tried to do that.”
Here are some prime examples of petty, irrational, and nonsensical liberal attacks on Ivanka Trump:
Want to Work Out? No Sweat — Unless You’re a Trump. Anne Mahlum, founder of the gym chain Solidcore, took to Facebook last week to let people know she was angry the daughter of the president worked out at one of her D.C. locations. Why such fuss? Because Mahlum, a liberal activist, accused President Trump of “threatening the rights” of her customers and employees — and further said she was requesting a meeting with Ivanka Trump.
In true activist style, Mahlum wrote: “What you do when you find out Ivanka Trump just took [a class at Solidcore], but used an alias to sign up for class? You reach out and ask for a meeting. While I don’t know her and I always seek to understand … I do know her father is threatening the rights of many of my beloved clients and coaches and as a business owner, I take my responsibility to protect and fight for my people very seriously.”
A firestorm of response ensued — including calls for a boycott of Solidcore, which has 13 D.C. locations and studios in other states, too. Tweets accused Mahlum of infringing on her client’s right to privacy, reported CNBC.com, and others called Mahlum “biased and hypocritical.” Still others posted stories of Ivanka Trump’s charity work. The criticism outweighed the support, noted CNBC.
The post has since been deleted. Tellingly, Mahlum had bragged previously that Michelle Obama, as first lady, had been taking classes at the gym, Heather Nauert of Fox News reported.
Friendly Skies? Not If You’re a Trump. Ivanka Trump and her young children were harassed by an airline passenger on a JetBlue flight out of New York in December, in a shameful display of anger and rudeness.
The man, whom witnesses described as an “out-of-control passenger,” berated the daughter of the president in front of her children, according to TMZ and other outlets.
“Your father is ruining the country,” the passenger said rudely, according to TMZ, as Ivanka Trump sat quietly in her seat during the tirade. The man continued, “Why is she on our flight? She should be riding private.” The unhinged traveler was eventually removed from the airplane.
Equity in the Marketplace? Not If You’re a Trump. Retail giant Nordstrom, which is based in Seattle, decided last week to stop carrying Ivanka Trump’s fashion line, apparently bowing to liberal hysteria over anything carrying with the Trump name. The retailer had previously ignored boycotters’ calls to discontinue the brand — an email sent last Nov. 21 from the company’s co-president, Pete Nordstrom, to employees affirmed it would continue carrying the brand, writing, “[It] has grown to be a sizable and successful business,” according to Fortune.
Nordstrom is now asking the public to believe that sales for the brand have nosedived in just 10 weeks: The retail giant last week claimed that the Ivanka Trump brand wasn’t performing well. Industry insiders, however, told Breitbart News that was just not true.
Nordstrom’s decision has sparked a furious backlash from customers who are boycotting the store, returning their purchases, and cutting up their Nordstrom’s cards, according to Breitbart. Neiman Marcus, which is based in Dallas, also decided to drop Ivanka Trump merchandise.
Rosie O’Donnell, a celebrity whose favorite hobby is attacking President Trump and now apparently includes dreams of playing White House strategist Steve Bannon on “Saturday Night Live,” descended on Ivanka Trump and her husband, Jared Kushner, as they were trying to enjoy a dinner out together at Nobu in Manhattan last year during the presidential campaign. O’Donnell was so taken aback by Ivanka Trump’s kindness and attentiveness that she wrote a poem about the experience.
Titling it “8 Million to One,” a reference to the population of NYC, she posted it on her website Rosie.com.
“…i walked the 5 steps toward her table
she smiled genuinely
her husband was warm and gracious
i told her of my children
some truths about myself
my pain and shame
she was absurdly kind…”
Evidence has shown Americans that Ivanka Trump is kind, compassionate, and extremely smart. When it comes to progressives who cannot accept any America but the one they want, however, the evidence doesn’t seem to matter. Smearing a wife and mother’s reputation in furtherance of their liberal agenda proves that when it comes to the Left, tactics include anything but tolerance.
