Twitter roasts Ivanka Trump’s hypocritical tweet about Women’s History Month

Guess she didn't learn after her #BlackHistoryMonth tweet was dragged.

Ivanka Trump drew criticism on Thursday when she tweeted about Women’s History Month and women’s “incredible contributions to our nation.”

“As we celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth we reflect on women’s incredible contributions to our Nation,” she tweeted. “We honor women’s legacy of achievements—from pioneering innovations & strengthening our communities to leading in business & politics. Women write America’s proud & thriving history.”

This statement would have been received as a perfectly acceptable tweet if it had come from anyone else. But, alas, it was said by a woman who has done little to stand up for women or their concerns as the president’s advisor. She has instead supported her father throughout more than a dozen sexual harassment accusations and despite his numerous degrading comments about women. Hell, her mother, Ivana, even testified in 1989 that Donald made her feel “violated during sex” and Ivanka still stands by him.   

In fact, it was only a few days ago that the senior adviser to the White House told NBC News anchor Peter Alexander she thought it was a “pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated there’s no truth to it.”

Ivanka’s tweet was hypocritical at best and Twitter made sure she knew it.

Last month, Ivanka made a similar misstep when she attempted to tweet about Black History Month.
