WATCH: Conservative mansplains on Fox News why feminists won’t defend Ivanka Trump

Published

on

Appearing on Fox & Friends Sunday morning, the head of the conservative Citizens United PAC lectured feminists for not standing up for  Ivanka Trump after she sat in for her elected father at a G20 meeting in Hamburg.

Following the lead of host Abby Huntsman — who excitedly read some of the Twitter criticisms of  the first daughter — David Bossie blamed the complaints on “feminists in name only’ who only care about “the checkbook.”

“These feminists are only feminists in name only,” the former deputy campaign manager for Donald Trump complained. “They’re only feminists when it affects their checkbook. They don’t fight for women across the board. They never have.”

Criticism of Ivanka Trump came from across the political spectrum, with some noting she has claimed to want to “stay out of politics.” Others, such as the New York Times’ Charles Blow, pointed out, “Why the hell is Ivanka Trump sitting in for daddy at G20 meetings?! What are her qualifications? Who voted for her?”

According to Bossie, such comments are “demeaning.”

“The left calling these derogatory terms — describing her in these derogatory terms is so demeaning,”Bossie stated. “It’s unbelievable that the left would allow this to happen and not just condemn these remarks. It is absolutely wrong for the left to be attacking Ivanka on these issues.”

Published

on

Republicans who thought they could manage Donald Trump were taken down in The New Yorker on Tuesday.

The Susan Glasser article was titled, "The spectacular failure of the Trump wranglers."

"On Tuesday, nearly seven hours into the marathon third day of public impeachment hearings, Kurt Volker tried to explain to the House Intelligence Committee what it was like to carry out the nearly impossible task of wrangling U.S. policy toward Ukraine during the Presidency of Donald Trump," Glasser wrote. "Volker, a veteran Republican diplomat who had been serving, since 2017, as Trump’s Special Representative to Ukraine, said that he realized last spring that he had a 'problem,' and that it was Trump himself.
