On Monday, Ivanka Trump was interviewed on NBC’s Today Show, when reporter Pete Alexander asked her a personal question about the President of the United States. It was intended to create sensationalism. And it was a question the mainstream media would never ask Chelsea Clinton about her father.
Alexander asked Ivanka about sexual harassment allegations against the President. “Do you believe your father’s accusers?” Alexander asked.
Ivanka offered a brilliant response. “I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated that there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father. I know my father, so I think I have that right as a daughter, to believe my father.”
Ben Shapiro writes, “Whether President Trump ought to be believed in his rejection of all accusations of sexual misconduct is one question. (The simple answer is no, given his history and the multiplicity of the allegations.) But there’s little question that children tend to believe what their parents say. And there’s no question that Ivanka is absolutely right about the media’s variable treatment of Republican children and Democratic children. The question to Ivanka wasn’t inappropriate. But has any member of the media ever asked Chelsea Clinton about rape and sexual harassment allegations regarding Bill Clinton?”
There is a really good reason so many Republicans believe the media is biased against them. They are.
