Last night on Full Frontal, Samantha Bee laid waste to the notion that Ivanka Trump is some sort of feminist mole in the White House working to covertly make her father’s policies less heinous. “Look, I get it, people are comforted by the thought of a progressive feminist in the White House,” Bee said. “To which I say, if you wanted that, you should have voted for it.”
Bee used Ivanka’s role in what the New Yorker deemed “Donald Trump’s Worst Deal,” a potential hotel in Azerbaijan, to describe how Ivanka does not act as a moral devil’s advocate to her dad. “Ivanka’s new job is the same as her old job, pushing her dad’s dodgy agenda with a smile,” Bee said. The host also made a very important point about Ivanka’s personal interests regarding the environment. “Meeting with Leo DiCaprio is not a sign that you care about climate change, it’s a sign that you were a teenager in the 90s.” Indeed. What Titanic fan would pass up the opportunity to have a quick chat with Jack?
