Hillary Was Just Asked If Ivanka Is ‘Complicit’ In Trump’s Agenda. Her Response Is Brutal

 

First Daughter Ivanka Trump was supposed to be a moderating voice in President Trump administration. She promised to fight for women’s rights, equal pay for women, and paid family leave for America’s workers.

But in the six months, since her father took office, Ivanka has accomplished nothing. She’s largely abandoned her promises to fight for women’s issues despite her high-profile White House office and has failed to rein in any of her father’s destructive impulses.

Defeated presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was directly asked whether or not First Daughter Ivanka Trump was complicit in her father’s misogyny and discrimination – and her answer was definitive.

Arianna Davis at Refinery 29 gave a far too generous description of Ivanka Trump’s activism while asking whether or not Ivanka is complicit in her father’s failure (video below).

 So, Ivanka Trump. She’s started to champion a lot of the same issues that you did, she even wore a white pantsuit to the inauguration, but she’s kind of failed to live up to a lot the things that she said that she would. Do you feel that she’s complicit in the administration’s actions? And should we be sympathetic for her?

Clinton doesn’t hold back in her response, rightfully painting not just Ivanka but every single person who works in the Trump White House as complicit in President Trump’s agenda of patriarchal white supremacy.

The way I look at it is that the person who has to be held responsible is Donald Trump. He is the president, he listens to who he listens to, he tweets and speaks out, makes common cause with white supremacists, and neo-Nazis and Ku Klux Klanners, takes away the protections that were granted to 800,000 DREAMers, and in so many ways just trying to impose a political agenda that is turning the clock back, or attempting to do so in ways that I find not only really repulsive, but wrongheaded in terms of the kind of country we are.

So everyone associated with him, they’re either on board with that, or they’re not. And if they’re not they need to be speaking out or leaving. But if they remain silent, and just give lip service to contrary points of views, then they are part of his agenda and should be judged and held accountable for that.

She’s absolutely right. There comes a time when people need to take a stand for what they truly believe in and what they will tolerate.

Anyone who continues to stand by a self-admitted sexual predator who actively refuses to disavow neo-Nazis and pushes an agenda of soft ethnic cleansing on our nation is complicit and must face the consequences of their decisions.

The repercussions must be especially severe for those who are in a position to actually take some kind of substantial action but merely adopt the language of social justice to superficially burnish their public image – and in Ivanka’s case, fill her own pockets.

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller (VIDEO)

Chief Of Staff Confirms That Trump Is Under Investigation By Mueller

 

Ever since the investigation into the 2016 election began, President Trump has steadfastly maintained that he isn’t personally under investigation.

Shortly after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed earlier this year, Trump said former FBI Director James Comey had assured him he wasn’t part of the counterintelligence investigation being conducted by the FBI. And while that may be true in regard to counterintelligence, Comey didn’t offer any assurances that Trump wasn’t under criminal investigation.

And on Monday, just hours after indictments of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his business partner Rick Gates were unsealed in Washington, the president was on Twitter trying to distract from the growing scandal:

And yet, when White House Chief of Staff John Kelly appeared on The Ingraham Angle Monday evening, he clearly suggested that his boss is indeed being investigated, telling the host:

“It’s very distracting to the president, as it would be to any citizen, to be investigated, while at the same time trying to carry the weight of what it means to be president of the United States on his shoulders.”

If that’s not confirmation, what exactly is?

As for Kelly’s whining that it’s an added “weight” on Trump to know he’s under the microscope while trying to do his job, all I can say is BOO FREAKING HOO! If he can’t handle the pressure, maybe he needs to step aside and let a legitimately elected person run the country. Someone like Hillary Clinton, who got nearly 3 million more votes than the Orange Menace.

Also, Trump made a choice to associate with unsavory characters like Manafort and Gates. He appointed Michael Flynn to one of the highest positions in the administration despite the fact that he was on the take from both the Russian and Turkish governments. You know the old saying: You are the company you keep.

So here’s a bit of advice for Trump and Kelly: No one wants to hear your pathetic whining. And we don’t believe any of your lies.

Here’s Kelly on Fox News:

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

Harvey Weinstein to TWC Board, ‘I’m Sorry, I Have a Real Problem’

 

 

Harvey Weinstein was apologetic and contrite during the Board of Directors meeting Tuesday when he resigned under pressure from the Board … sources connected to the meeting tell TMZ.

We’re told there was no screaming, no yelling, no anger. Harvey Weinstein told the Board, “I have a real problem,” and then apologized for the “trouble and confusion” he caused TWC.

We’re told Weinstein, who was on speaker phone from Arizona, told the Board he needed to build a new life and move on.

Our sources say everyone sounded conciliatory … partly because the handwriting was on the wall.  The Board made it clear Weinstein had a legal obligation to resign from the Board after it ratified his firing from TWC. He did just that.

Harvey, we’re told, was “peaceful” during the meeting and Bob was subdued.

We’re told the sense of the Board is that Harvey Weinstein will not force his firing to arbitration or court.

Our sources say both Harvey and Bob Weinstein have an overriding interest in making sure Colony Capital succeeds in restructuring the company — money. The each have roughly 21% equity interest in TWC, and if the company fails, they walk away with nothing.

As one source put it, “Harvey and Bob have a huge stake in making sure Colony Capital can put Humpty Dumpty back together again.”

Trump’s Net Worth Plummets By $600 Million

 

As much as Donald Trump loves to brag about how rich he is, turns out he’s a lot less wealthy than he was a year ago.

Forbes magazine has just released their annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans has some very bad news for the Donald: His net worth has fallen drastically by $600 million, meaning he’s only worth an estimated $3.1 billion. That drops him 92 spots on the Top 400 list, from #146 to #248.

Ouch!

What led to the sudden drop in Trump’s worth? Forbes notes:

“A tough New York real estate market, particularly for retail locations; a costly lawsuit and an expensive presidential campaign.”

Ironically, America’s richest people are richer than they were in 2016, but not Trump.

Continue reading below the advertisement.

For the 24th year in a row, Bill Gates tops the list, with an estimated net worth of $89 billion. Here’s the rest of the top 10:

  • Jeff Bezos, Amazon, $67 billion
  • Warren Buffett, Berkshire Hathaway, $65.5 billion
  • Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook, $55.5 billion
  • Larry Ellison, Oracle, $49.3 billion
  • Michael Bloomberg, Bloomberg LP, $45 billion
  • Charles Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • David Koch, Koch Industries, $42 billion
  • Larry Page, Google, $48.5 billion
  • Sergey Brin, Google, $37.5 billion

And Trump fared even worse on the Bloomberg’s worldwide billionaires list, which rates his worth at $2.86 billion. That doesn’t even qualify him to be named as one of the 500 richest people in the world.
