Cosmopolitan ran a hit piece today titled, “Ivanka Trump’s White House Gig Is an Insult to Working Women.” Authored by former Sen. Ted Cruz speechwriter Amanda Carpenter, the piece bashes the first daughter’s new West Wing office position for “nepotism” and “giving off the air of an entitled princess.” Furthermore, Carpenter claims, another woman might easily be better at her job.
“By taking this role, Ivanka is taking away a life-changing opportunity from another woman, who undoubtedly would have more expertise than the first daughter,” she writes.
Carpenter’s piece is nothing short of sensational contempt for the president and his family members. It provides no real evidence as to what makes Ivanka less qualified for the White House role than any other woman; rather, it attempts to dismiss her solely because she is “privileged,” referencing her multimillion dollar businesses and her father’s connections. The author seems so eager to bash Trump’s daughter that she brands Ivanka as a snob for not accepting a monetary salary, then slams her for “taking advantage of taxpayer-funded resources” in the same article.
