“Complicit,” Ivanka, Hypocrisy, and a Life of Privilege

Ivanka

Donald Trump and his family lack the ability to relate to the average American. All of them have experienced lives of privilege. They have never worked for minimum wage, and have no understanding about the daily struggles of millions of our nation’s people.

Unless you live in denial, you are aware of the real Donald Trump. He is a bully; he is arrogant; he is a white supremacist; he is a sexist; he is a tool of Vladimir Putin and emulates his bigotry and autocratic style.

After Trump became your illegitimate president, another Trump experienced scrutiny. When the average American sees Ivanka on television, they see an attractive woman who has been protected and well-cared-for all of her life. What we are actually witnessing is a facade.

Saturday Night Live is in its 42nd season. I have watched every episode since 1975; some several times. Changes in cast members and writers created some great shows; some good; and some with very little humor. However, last year, and this year, the cast is tremendously talented, and the laughs never cease. Many of the jokes and skits are aimed at Donald Trump and his family.

Trump has provided an enormous amount of material for SNL and the late night talk show hosts. Trump’s inability to tell the truth; his extremely poor speech; his penchant for tweeting when his ego is damaged; and his ridiculous personal appearance are fodder for the writers.

Last Saturday evening, the highlight of the SNL broadcast was a short skit focused on Ivanka Trump. It was based on a perfume ad, but ended in political satire at Ivanka’s expense.

Scarlett Johansson enters a room filled with women and men dressed in formal attire. She is wearing a slinky evening gown as the narrator begins to describe her.

“Every man knows her name. Every woman knows her face.”

The partygoers all stop and look as the voiceover continues, “When she walks into a room, all eyes are on her. She’s Ivanka.”

Next comes the name of her personal fragrance.

“She’s beautiful. She’s powerful. She’s … complicit.” We then hear, “She’s a woman who knows what she wants. And knows what she’s doing. ‘Complicit.'”

The final blow tells the truth. Ivanka knows that her father lacks morals, and by association she is “Complicit” as well.

“A feminist, an advocate, a champion for women. But, like, how? She’s loyal. Devoted. But probably should have bounced after the whole ‘Access Hollywood’ bus thing.”

Here is the truth. The Trump family has never sacrificed anything for their country; they are takers, not givers. They believe that they have the right to do anything they choose. There has never been a single effort to consider the plight of the average American, and as your illegitimate president Trump’s personal ambitions are his only goal.

The “Von-Trump” family has never earned the respect of anyone. They are to be scorned and their evils revealed for all to see.

We must continue the efforts begun by our nation’s women; Trump must be evicted from the White House.
