Ivanka Trump Spoke Like a Democrat and Republicans Absolutely Loved It

Sad but true. Ivanka is caught up in the insane view that there is a gender wage gap and the Republicans in Cleveland cheered when she presented that view.

WaPo reports:
Ivanka Trump, the eldest Trump daughter, has been a perennial presence on the campaign trail. But on Thursday night, she went where no advocate for a Republican presidential nominee has ventured in primetime before: She spoke explicitly about the gender wage gap and the plight of working mothers.
“Single women without children earn 94 cents for each dollar earned by a man, whereas married mothers made only 77 cents,” Ivanka declared.”Gender is no longer the factor creating the greatest wage discrepancy in this country, motherhood is.”

For a complete demolition of the idea that there is a gender wage gap see: The Myth of The Gender Wage Gap.



  1. This was really disappointing especially given their business background and this whole thing about how impressive the children are "supposed" to be. Does Ivanka really expect that a person taking themselves out of the workforce to have children is not going to affect their career?

    I did watch the speeches by the children again and I have to say Eric was the best speaker, closely followed by Don Jr. (Impressive guys, a dynasty surely is unfolding before us). Ivanka was just ok, not as smooth or comfortable reading off the teleprompter, not even as good as Tiffany.

  2. Maybe they all own lots of stock in robot companies.

  3. There is only one solution to this "problem", ban motherhood to protect women from victimization of evil companies that do not pay women for not working.
