When Ivanka Trump was asked by NBC's Peter Alexander what she thought of the allegations of sexual harassment against her father, President Donald Trump, she pulled the daughter card, saying she didn't think it was appropriate for her to answer a question like that. In this video, when Trump is asked how she feels about her father being criticized for siding with men accused of domestic abuse, like Rob Porter and Roy Moore," she answers, "I don't think that's true." What is she even talking about? She's human, right, not a robot?
In the clip, Peter Alexander asks Trump, "What do you to say to those who say your father routinely chooses to empathize with the accused over the accusers. Rob Porter, Roy Moore, and other circumstances. How do you explain that?"
And, honest to God, this is what comes out of her mouth:
Well, I don't think that's true. I think that when there are cases of domestic violence, as we saw recently, that cannot be condoned, nobody would condone that. And I think there is a vast spectrum and I think this is actually a really important conversation for us to be having as a society about what is unacceptable, unconditionally. What has to, we have to be able to talk about and resolve moving forward. I actually think this is an exciting and important moment in time. And I think many people are being exposed for doing some really awful things and I'm proud of the women who are standing up in the face of accusers with credible evidence and credible stories and we've seen a lot of those. A lot of them, recently.
What? What is she saying? Did she actually complete a single coherent thought? It's like someone handed her a bunch of #MeToo words on flashcards and she shuffled them.
At no point does she even acknowledge that her own father has been accused of sexual harassment many times over.
Twitter couldn't believe it, either.
Ivanka did manage to get a lot of important ideas started in there, but of course not one of them had anything to do with the answer to Alexander's question. Well…done?
