Ivanka Trump has been facing a lot of criticism since her father won the Election. Retailers have dropped her products, she’s been called lots of nasty things, but this is pretty low.
It is now being insinuated that Ivanka is racist for not going to the African American History museum.
Check out the Daily Mail headline:
That wouldn’t have happened for any other President.
The article looks ok, but the implied snub is in the headline.
Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner made an appearance at the news conference for President Trump and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
The couple and their children are the President’s only Jewish family, and Kushner has a relationship with the Israeli Prime Minister.
In fact, both world leaders gave a hat tip to Trump’s senior advisor and son-in-law during the press conference.
‘Can I reveal how many years I’ve known you?’ Netanyahu said from onstage, as the two leaders gave a brief press conference today.
‘He was never small, he was always big – he was always tall,’ Netanyahu said of Kushner. ‘But I’ve known the president and I’ve known his family and his team for a long time and there is no greater supporter of the Jewish people and the Jewish state than President Donald Trump.’
Kushner, who is Jewish, came up in the context of a question a reporter asked about increased reports of anti-Semitic incidents in the United States since Trump won the election.
Also in attendance at the event was First Lady Melania Trump, who made her first official appearance since her husband was sworn into office almost one month ago on January 20.
During the conference, Melania and Ivanka sat next to one another, and afterwards, the First Lady took the
Prime Minister’s wife Sara Netanyahu to visit Washington’s newest Smithsonian, the African American history museum.
After their afternoon at the museum, Melania and Sara will attend a private dinner later tonight that the Trumps are throwing for the Netanyahus.

Watch Benjamin Netanyahu make it very clear that President Trump is a great friend to Israel:
So, no matter what Ivanka does it’s problematic.
Do you remember the big hullabaloo when she was going to handle some of the duties of First Lady while Melania stays with Barron in New York so he can finish his school year?
Now Ivanka is being criticized for not pushing Melania aside and wrestling the duties from her.
Ivanka apprently did that because she’s now racist.
Not because it’s the job of the First Lady who is present.
The CEO of Buzzfeed, (yes, ‘Golden Showers’ publishing BuzzFeed) Jonah Peretti, had twetted this nastiness around the time of the Access Hollywood hot-mic leak:
Ivanka has taken heat for her father and his alleged racism on her Instagram account, too. Even photos of her children aren’t immune to the hate-filled screeds. Check out this comment on Ivanka’s adorable pic of her daughter eating breakfast in her robe with the morning newspaper next to her.
This is beyond the pale.
You can’t just brand people as racists because you don’t like their policies.
It dilutes what racism actually is.
