When Trump proves to be unsinkable, despite constant assaults, what’s the next best thing to do? Attack his daughter, Ivanka.
Traditionally any President’s children have been off limit, but those sensibilities began to erode with President Bush’s daughters, and continued into the Obama White House. Ivanka Trump is different than every other child of a President, because she’s not a child. She’s an extremely brilliant, accomplished wife and mother, not to mention an independent businesswoman in her own right.
She works hand in hand with her father and is even called his “eyes and ears.” She’s fair game as far as traditional political critique is concerned, but liberal comparisons have really gotten out of hand. Chris Matthews had the audacity to actually compare Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner to Uday and Qusay Hussein, the devilish sons of Saddam Hussein!
“Uday and Qusay working for Saddam Hussein. You couldn’t go to a restaurant and make eye contact with one of these guys without getting killed…”
Yes. Chris Matthews just compared Ivanka and Jared to homicidal maniacs. Where’s the outrage? Oh, there is none.
Matthews likens the fall out of getting into a fight with the Trumps to getting into a fight Hussein’s sons. Seriously? You think people are going to start turning up dead?
This isn’t a Clinton presidency.
Libel anyone? This sort of thing has to stop.
