Ivanka Trump just praised Oprah for her “Times Up” speech and instantly regretted it

In perhaps one of her more bizarrely misguided moments since her father ascended to the presidency, Ivanka Trump took to Twitter tonight to praise Oprah after her moving “Times Up” speech while accepting theCecil B. de Mille Award at the Golden Globes last night.

Oprah’s speech spelled out in no uncertain terms the end of Hollywood’s tacit acceptance of sexual harassment, misconduct, and assault– and was met by resounding praise by those in attendance and around the nation.

Ivanka Trump’s tweet – while perhaps well intended – came across decidedly disingenuous given her own father’s vile and well documented history with sexual assault.

Trump, for his part, has been accused of sexual harassment or misconduct by 19 women. He has neither confessed to these crimes nor taken any degree of responsibility for them. Even in the face of damning evidence – such as the Access Hollywood tapes – the President has refused to address the issue.

He even went so far as to suggest to a sitting Senator, as well as an adviser, that his incriminating Access Hollywood tape – in which he admitted to sexual assault – is inauthentic.

Trump himself confirmed the infamous tape’s legitimacy on October 12, 2016, a fact that seemed to escape the President as he issued perhaps his most easily debunked denial.

“This was locker-room talk,” Trump said during a debate with his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton. “Certainly I’m not proud of it. I apologize to my family, I apologize to the American people.”

While Ivanka claims to be a champion of equality, she could perhaps start by denouncing America’s most egregious offender. In the meantime, Twitter took care of it.
