Ivanka Trump Doggedly Insists Her Father ‘Is a Feminist!’

ivankaForget everything you know about Donald Trump‘s relationship with women. Forget that his followers love to call female reporters the  c-word on Twitter when they dare challenge the candidate. Forget that former employees have reported that he got progressively more misogynistic the longer they worked for him. Forget that whole thing where Trump said women should be punished for getting abortions. Forget every quote about women we have from him, especially the ones compiled for this pro-Hillary Clintonad. Forget all of it.

Why should you forget?

Ivanka Trump says her dad is a feminist!

She told the Sunday Times. Here:

My father is a feminist. He’s a big reason I am the woman I am today. People talk about gender equality. He has lived it, he has employed women at the highest levels of the Trump Organization for decades, so I think it’s a great testament to how capable he thinks women are and has shown that his whole life.

Her father also cheated on her mother, Ivana Trump, with Marla Maples. After the divorce, a book came out that featured Ivana’s accusations that he raped her, though she has tried to walk those comments back now.

Then again, the great feminist just never thought he would run for office, so maybe all that sexist stuff doesn’t count anyway.
