Lawrence O’Donnell Tears Into Ivanka Trump’s ‘Depraved Audacity’ For #TimesUp Tweet
On Tuesday night, Lawrence O’Donnell slammed Ivanka Trump for her tweet in support of the #TimesUp movement.
The First Daughter took to Twitter on Monday to praise Oprah Winfrey‘s Golden Globes speech and said the following:
— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) January 9, 2018
Well, the MSNBC hosted felt very passionate thoughts about this.
“She did not say ‘Time’s Up’ when over 20 women came forward with their accusations that her father had sexually harassed or sexually assaulted them,” O’Donnell said. “Ivanka Trump has been an active co-conspirator in the enabling and the covering up of her father’s self-confessed lifetime of sexual assault and abuse.”
He also accused her of having the “depraved audacity” to make such a tweet and said she “threw a brick at the #TimesUp movement.”
O’Donnell then brought on Jessica Leeds, one of President Trump‘s accusers who came forward with allegations of assault during the 2016 election. She called Ivanka Trump’s tweet “very hypocritical.”
“It’s unfortunate too because you don’t want to speak badly of the president’s family,” Leeds said. “But she’s totally misread the whole position and what’s going on in the world.”
