Ivanka Trump Offers Absolutely Ludicrous Defense for Her Father’s Blatant Sexism (Video)

To sit back and listen to people make excuses for Donald Trump is actually fairly entertaining. Admittedly, it can be incredibly maddening to watch some of these folks excuse the outlandish behavior and comments of Trump, but I’ve actually reached a point where I’ve found it all rather hilarious. There’s nothing like seeing someone provide a serious answer or response to a situation by using “logic” that only seems to exist in the delusional reality in which Trump and his supporters live.

For example, the “logic” Ivanka Trump used to defend her father against the accusations made by many that he’s a misogynistic sexist who belittles and disrespects women.

During an interview with CNN’s Gloria Borger, Trump’s daughter insisted that her father couldn’t possibly be sexist because — wait for it — she works for him.

“He’s absolutely not a sexist,” Ivanka said. “There’s no way I could be the person I am today if my father was a sexist. I would not be one of his senior-most executives. I would not be working shoulder-to-shoulder with my brothers. I would be working for my brothers, if at all.”

Before going forward, here are a few actual quotes from Donald Trump about women:

You know, it doesn’t really matter what [the media] write as long as you’ve got a young and beautiful piece of ass.

Rosie O’Donnell is disgusting, both inside and out. If you take a look at her, she’s a slob. How does she even get on television? If I were running The View, I’d fire Rosie. I’d look her right in that fat, ugly face of hers and say, ‘Rosie, you’re fired.

26,000 unreported sexual assaults in the military-only 238 convictions. What did these geniuses expect when they put men & women together?

I mean, we could say politically correct that look doesn’t matter, but the look obviously matters. Like you wouldn’t have your job if you weren’t beautiful. (Said to a female reporter)

If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband what makes her think she can satisfy America?

All of the women on The Apprentice flirted with me — consciously or unconsciously. That’s to be expected.

Ariana Huffington is unattractive, both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man – he made a good decision.

A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10.

I’ll supply funds and she’ll take care of the kids. It’s not like I’m gonna be walking kids down to Central Park.

There are many more, but I think I’ve made my point that Trump has a very long and detailed history of misogyny and sexism.

Now, with that said, Ivanka’s “logic” here is nonsensical. Not only does the fact that he’s hired females have absolutely nothing to do with determining whether or not he’s “sexist” (especially considering he’s proven that he’ll hire attractive women because he feels their looks qualify them for certain jobs), but the fact that she’s claiming that her position within the family company somehow “proves” her father isn’t sexist is ridiculous.

The fact that she’s his daughter completely nullifies her argument. Especially considering the rather creepy comments he’s made about her looks, even saying he would probably date her if she wasn’t his daughter. So, based on his sexist comments in the past where he’s clearly indicated a woman’s looks give her an advantage (especially in his mind), I do have to wonder if his daughter wasn’t someone he found to be “one of the great beauties” with “the best body,” would she have as much of a role within his businesses as she does now? There’s obviously no way to prove her looks made any sort of difference, but I don’t believe it’s unreasonable to question whether or not Ivanka would be featured as prominently within her dad’s businesses and presidential campaign if he didn’t think she was a “beauty” who had “the best body” — at least according to his past comments on women’s looks.

However, regardless of any of that, the fact that apparently the “best” argument Ivanka Trump can come up with to defend her father’s sexist behavior is that she’s been fairly successful within his businesses actually proves how repulsive he is. If that’s her way of trying to defend her father’s abhorrent behavior and comments toward women, then she really doesn’t have any actual defense.
