Oooh, honey. You should have known something like this was coming.
Remember Ivanka Trump‘s piss-poor Pride Month tweet back at the start of June? The one where the daughter of, and advisor to, the President of the United States, thought it would be a great idea to tweet the following:
I am proud to support my LGBTQ friends and the LGBTQ Americans who have made immense contributions to our society and economy.
— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) June 2, 2017
…while apparently standing by as her dad went on stripping the hard-earned rights from the LGBTQI community?
Yeah, we remember it too. And so do many high-profile LGBTQI Americans, and their allies, who are appalled at Daddy Trump‘s blatantly discriminatory ban on trans people in the United States military.
Now Ivanka is being subject to a particularly fine form of roasting – a well-researched, deeply angry roast that squarely takes aim at her so-called “influential” position in the White House.
So you still stand with them, despite your father’s announcement today, @IvankaTrump? Will you stand up to @realDonaldTrump? #LGBTQ https://t.co/SvU4vJt2a3

guys don’t worry, I’m sure Ivanka will release a statement soon that she “disagreed” with her father’s decision

Remember when people said Ivanka would be an ally for the LGBT community? https://t.co/5gVJeI5CK3

When I see people seriously (or jokingly) asking “where’s Ivanka?” I think of this @Olivianuzzi graf, which about sums up her influence pic.twitter.com/hxaBT3JrfU

Looking forward to the behind-the-scenes “Ivanka disagreed with her father’s decision and tried to change his mind” articles https://t.co/VzU0iSBsUS

All fair points. Ivanka Trump isn’t just the President’s daughter; both she and her husband occupy high-level staffer roles in the Trump administration. Saying that you support LGBTQI Americans, and then a month later allowing your dad – and boss – to trample their rights without so much as a peep – it’s poor form, and it doesn’t bode well for the rest of Ivanka’s time as a presidential advisor.
Pick up your game, Ivanka. Hypocrisy is an ugly look.
