Twitter immediately reminded Ivanka why her tweet made little sense
After Oprah Winfrey’s stirring speech that brought down the house at Sunday night’s Golden Globes, the internet’s been abuzz with both praise for her words and talk of the self-made billionaire running for president in 2020. Her acceptance speech for the Cecil B. DeMille Award was all about the end of the an era — the dawn of a new day where sexual harassment and assault would no longer be tolerated.
Which is why Twitter is totally confused that Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald “Access Hollywood Tapes” Trump, is eagerly supporting Winfrey’s message.
The Time’s Up movement, sparked by a group of powerful Hollywood women who want to help fund legal proceedings for women and men who experience sexual harassment and assault, was given a huge boost in visibility Sunday night when stars showed up wearing black and used much of their red carpet interview time and award acceptance speeches to speak to the cause. Even the first daughter was wowed by Winfrey’s powerful speech where she called for an end to the time when this kind of behavior was swept under the rug.

Trump’s tweet reads, “Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP.”
Is she kidding?
Needless to say, Twitter is extremely entertained by her enthusiastic endorsement for Oprah’s speech considering its subject matter.
Winfrey’s words were pretty much all about Ivanka’s father and men like him — and why they’re all going down. She condemned sexual assault and harassment while also tossing out a barely-concealed barb at the president and his well-known attacks on the media. “We all know that the press is under siege these days, but we also know that it is the insatiable dedication to uncovering the absolute truth that keeps us from turning a blind eye to corruption and injustice. To tyrants, and victims, and secrets, and lies.”
It seems Ivanka might be a bit of a lost lamb, or she’s even dumber than any of us ever could’ve guessed.

Scientists working hard to determine whether its possible for Ivanka to be any more like Rose from Get Out.

Or maybe she’s even more of an evil cartoon villain than her dad.
This is how cunning/cold Ivanka is. Preparing herself for a future where Jared and Dad are both in jail and she puts human skin over lizard. https://t.co/T7V7jUabjx

Whatever the case, Twitter had jokes.
BREAKING: Ivanka admits: ‘Yeah, I’m kinda, like, a Democrat. But don’t tell dad." https://t.co/c5T7Wf6Fgt

She honestly must think we’re all idiots. Or she’s an idiot. Either way, this is extremely interesting.
Ivanka saying "Time's Up" doesn't just tell you something about her intelligence (or lack thereof); it tells you what she thinks about everyone else's.

Alyssa Milano has a good idea.
Great! You can make a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father's accusers.https://t.co/A8HCVa715v— Alyssa Milano (@Alyssa_Milano) January 9, 2018
And Chrissy just wants her to GTFO. This is why we love you, Chrissy.

No one’s letting Trump get away with being this tone-deaf and ignorant.
You do understand the same complaints of sexual impropriety have been made by women against your father, right? This is what Oprah is talking about, in case you didn't get it, and it seems you didn't.— Gary Pearson (@captainpearson) January 9, 2018
So you'll ask your father to resign?— Justin Hendrix (@justinhendrix) January 9, 2018
Now...go talk to your daddy.— BeHonest (@TruthfulnessPlz) January 9, 2018
This is the most hypocritical, clueless statement in her regrettable time in the WH. Your father has a trail of victims and supported Roy Moore, Ivanka. YOU are indeed part of the problem Ivanka. #complicit— Jennifer Rubin (@JRubinBlogger) January 9, 2018
She’s either in serious denial or hoping we’re all dumb as hell. Either way, no sweetie. Just… no.
