Ivanka Trump Responds To Her Dad’s Sexual Misconduct Allegations


Donald Trump’s daughter, and advisor, Ivanka Trump said she ‘sides with her father’ over allegations against him relating to sexual misconduct.

‘At least 21’ women have come forward accusing the US president of sexual abuse.

In October 2016, The Washington Post published footage from 2005 of Trump bragging about being able to ‘get away with anything’ because he’s famous.


There was mention of kissing women without waiting for permission, and that line about ‘grabbing women by the p***y’.

Trump since defended these comments as ‘locker room talk’, and when asked by TV host Anderson Cooper during a presidential debate, Trump said he had ‘not sexually assaulted women’.

Some claims date as far back as the early 1980s. The accusations range from forcible kissing to groping and other unwanted sexual advances.

Ivanka Trump was asked about the allegations during an interview on NBC ‘s Today show Monday (February 26), and defended her father.

Appearing agitated by the question, she told Peter Alexander during the interview:

I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it.

I don’t think that’s a question that you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father. I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.

Her comments riled up a lot of people who went straight to Twitter to voice their anger.

One person wrote:

You don’t seem to understand this is a package deal. You don’t get an office in the WH, access to classified info (w/o a security clearance I might add), and photo ops as “representative” of this country, but get a free pass on difficult & relevant questions.

You have represented yourself as a women’s advocate in your “position” (as ill defined as it is) within the administration that SERVES US. Perfectly appropriate to ask you to reconcile that position with multiple accusations against the man you serve and defend [sic].

Ivanka was the subject of rapper Eminem’s lyrics on his latest album.

It started last year with his blistering freestyle aimed squarely at President Trump, but then he wrote a track called ‘Framed’.

This is the lyric:

Donald Duck’s on as the Tonka Truck in the yard

But dog how the f*ck is Ivanka Trump in the trunk of my car

Gotta get to the bottom of it to try to solve it

Must go above and beyond, ’cause it’s incumbent upon

Me, ’cause I feel somewhat responsible for the dumb little blonde girl

Violence against women is absolutely not a matter for trivialisation, especially in the limited context of a rap lyric, where nuance is incredibly difficult to achieve.

The issue here is not his calling out of Trump, that’s something which he is well within his rights doing, and quite a lot of his fans will surely be lapping it up, but violence against women should not be used as a storytelling tool on either side of the political spectrum.

Back in October, Eminem skewered Trump during a freestyle at the BET awards in a much more powerful verse than anything he’s produced on Revival. See above.
