Ivanka's Non-Response To Trump's Third Charlottesville Speech Has People Fuming
After President Donald Trump interrupted an infrastructure-themed speech with some off-script remarks about the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, the silence from his daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner was salient. Though she provided a statement condemning white supremacists and neo-Nazis on Sunday, people are calling for Ivanka to speak up after her father's latest statements on Tuesday.
In addition to once again blaming "many sides" for the violence in Charlottesville — where a "Unite The Right" rally turned deadly over the weekend — President Trump's comments from Tuesday shifted blame to the so-called "alt-left."
What about the alt-left that came charging at, as you say, at the alt-right? Do they have any assemblage of guilt? What about the fact that they came charging with clubs in their hands swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do.
Ivanka tweeted the following on Sunday:
However, she hasn't followed up since her father took the stage again.
So, unsurprisingly, many people in politics and on the Internet are calling on the first daughter to step up.
For Many, It's A Matter Of Faith.
Notably: Ivanka converted to Orthodox Judaism in 2009.
Time For A Talk.
That's What "Complicit" Means.
Maybe Time To Make A Call.
When You Try Your Best, But You Don't Succeed...
Yeah, That's Not What "Moderate" Means.
Not The Right Time To Go Off-Grid.
History Has Its Eyes On You.
Where Are You?
Silence Isn't An Option Anymore, Guys.
For many on the Internet, the prevailing narratives of Ivanka and Kushner's "moderate" influence on the president have rung particularly false. But it's more apparent amid this deafening silence.
