Ivanka Trump presents herself as a Champion of Working Moms. Accordingly, she assumes to speak for those who must work–to support their child(ren), as well as for those who don’t (need to)! I cannot honestly speak for women who are, or were, working moms; however; whenever I hear her speak, I hear mostly the typical GOP income-divide.
In fact , whenever I hear any of the Trump Clan speak, I hear a very practiced form of Bait and Switch. Perhaps the Trumps are really descendants of visitors from the planet Metaphor.
When Ms. Trump touts Health Savings Accounts, tor sodden to finance Maternal Leave; let’s be clare, this is no benefit–the woman pays for it. Why isn’t there a provision for Paternal Leave., as well? Of course, most women would need employer approval and, in many cases, the lower-paying jobs would not be held for them. The proven benefits of parental leave, both to children and parents, abound! Oh, for some mysterious reason, the Trump Program will only apply to married women!
And Daddy Donald, of course, touts how hard his daughter works; but, giving of herself, is merely drumming-up support for one more program, intended to display both his and her humanity. When Donald and Ivanka Trump role out such programs, which are intended to appeal to the working class, the should remember to remove the strings and GOP tickers: they’re dead give-aways!
The linked column, by Jill Abramsom, “Ivanka Trump thinks she is in Beauty and the Beast: more like Macbeth”, from The Guardian (UK), most scathingly deflates “Princess I’s” PR balloon, back down to earth.
