MIA: Ivanka Trump, The So-Called Champion Of Women, Seems To Be Missing

Republicans slapped women and girls in the face today to rush through Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, a ‘man’ whose past is now in question. And now, even after the Senate Judiciary Committee was forced to allow an FBI investigation into any past sexual misconduct by Kavanaugh — and even after Donald Trump instructed the agency to reopen his nominee’s background investigation after several women accused him of sexual misconduct, things got even worse. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell is pushing for a procedural vote right now and says he’s “pleased to announce that all 51 Republican members of the Senate support the motion to proceed to the nomination.” All 51 Republican members of the Senate. 

What a shitshow.









The Senate Judiciary Committee has questioned Kavanaugh and only one of his accusers, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, and other potential witnesses have submitted sworn statements, but Republicans refused to allow Mark Judge, Kavanaugh’s friend, and alleged accomplice, to testify and that DOESN’T LOOK WEIRD AT ALL. They keep saying there are no witnesses but Judge is a witness. But now, the FBI will be speaking to Judge— and Judge’s ex-girlfriend, and that’s not good for Kavanaugh. He will crack like an egg.

Jeff Flake, the Arizona Republican, was stopped while trying to get into an elevator by two survivors of sexual assault. Earlier, Flake said that he would vote “yes” to confirm Kavanaugh, but that changed quickly. Flake also heard stories from close friends who were victims of sexual assault. It opened his eyes, so he demanded a delay in Kavanaugh’s hearing for one week while the FBI investigates the alleged incidents.

But someone is missing here. We didn’t expect someone like McConnell to display decency or even some sort of moral compass. However, Ivanka Trump, a so-called feminist, could have been a hero. She could have reached out to her father, to her political colleagues, who are now pro-rape just to own the libs, to explain that women, a good portion of U.S. voters, are being treated as if they’re subhuman and therefore, do not deserve the same rights as men. After all, according to Republicans, boys will be boys, and women need to realize that rape/sexual assault, is just a part of life so deal with it, bitches.

Earlier this year, Ivanka’s Twitter profile included, “passionate advocate for the education and empowerment of women and girls” but that was changed to “Wife, mother, sister, daughter…” She once styled herself as a champion of women, but that’s all changed now. Maybe, just maybe, she’s whispering in her father’s ear, and that’s why he called Dr. Ford a “credible witness” today and stopped lashing out at Kavanaugh’s alleged victim, but that isn’t enough. It shouldn’t work that way. A leader should already know that.

Girl, grow some ovaries. We need a hero, not a self-absorbed little grifter whose husband is plagued with scandals, just like her father is.

Do something.
