Ivanka Trump traveled to Germany and was participating in a women’s panel on Tuesday when the unthinkable occurred right as she was speaking.
Germany has become ultra-liberal under Chancellor Angela Merkel’s “leadership,” and it showed as the First Daughter graciously participated in a women’s panel, only to have the audience act exactly like American leftists after she defended her father.
“I’m very proud of my father’s advocacy,” Ivanka said, praising her father for supporting policies that help families.
Her remarks garnered boos and groans from the crowd, which caused the panel’s moderator to ask not about Ivanka’s own life experiences, but instead about President Trump’s treatment of women – reminiscent of the liberal media in America.
Ivanka gets booed and hissed by audience when she says her father is a"tremendous champion of supporting families."

“You hear the reaction from the audience,” the moderator responded. “I need to address one more point — some attitudes toward women your father has displayed might leave one questioning whether he’s such an empower-er for women.”
Ivanka acknowledged that the media has “perpetuated” Trump’s alleged treatment of women, but said that because she speaks on a “very personal level,” she can attest to her father’s support of the opposite sex.
“I grew up in a house where there was no barriers to what I could accomplish beyond my own perseverance and tenacity,” Ivanka explained. “That’s not an easy thing to do, he provided that for us.”
“There was no difference,” the young entrepreneur added.
Given Ivanka’s former role as a senior executive in her father’s company, the proof of her statement is in the pudding, as they say. However, instead of embracing and applauding Ivanka’s work in her father’s multi-billion dollar business, the moderator seemed to turn hostile, and instead used her involvement in the family business as a line of attack against her.
“You’re the first daughter of the United States, and you’re also an assistant to the president,” the moderator said. “The German audience is not that familiar with the concept of a first daughter. I’d like to ask you, what is your role, and who are you representing, your father as president of the United States, the American people, or your business?”
“Certainly not the latter,” Ivanka fired back. “I’m rather unfamiliar with this role as well…It has been a little under 100 days, and it has just been a remarkable and incredible journey.”
Regardless of whether or not people like President Trump, it’s just wrong to be hostile toward his daughter because of it. Doing so only shows a level of immaturity and hypocrisy usually only seen in children, since it’s evident they’re unable to separate emotion from reason and logic.
However, it’s become apparent that many on the left possess the emotional maturity of a toddler, so it’s really not a surprise they act in a similar manner. It’s just too bad that the Trump children are forced to deal with this kind of thing, since they all seem like they’re genuinely good people.
The funny thing is that Trump wasn’t ever accused of indecency toward women until after he started running for office, and if he were a Democrat none of it would have ever been mentioned. After all, Bill Clinton did far worse things than say some inappropriate comments on a bus, and he’s still championed as a liberal hero.
Hypocrisy, thy name is progressive liberal.
