Each Day The Press Goes More Crazy!

Trump for Dressing Like a Woman

Appearing as a guest on Sunday's MSNBC Live, MSNBC political analyst
 Joan Walsh fretted over Ivanka Trump wearing a "girlie" dress while sitting 
in for President Donald Trump in a meeting of the G-20. The left-wing Nation
correspondent suggested that the dress made the President's daughter look
 like "property" -- reminiscent of "patriarchal, authoritarian societies" -- and 
bemoaned that Ivanka's behavior in the White House is "frightening."

Even liberal anchor Thomas Roberts seemed uncomfortable with some of 
his left-wing guest's comments as he fretted that "you're opening yourself 
up," and wondered if there was something wrong with being both a 
"feminist" and "girlie."

At 6:32 p.m ET, before going to Walsh, Roberts played a clip of President 
Trump in a speech praising Ivanka before an audience. The two MSNBC 
personalities then made cracks about Trump's comments as they reacted:
ROBERTS: As we know from statements made prior to the presidential position

that he has talked about Ivanka in some odd ways for a dad to reflect --

JOAN WALSH, MSNBC POLITICAL ANALYST: That crossed my mind, too.

ROBERTS: -- on a daughter.
Walsh then turned into a fashion critic and suggested Ivanka was behaving 
like "property"  as she responded:
Right. With big bows on her sleeve. I mean, I don't mean to sound sexist --

it can be dangerous to comment on what women wear -- but the fact that

she sat in for her father in a dress that was so incredibly ornamental was

such a contradiction in terms. And I think that what we see is that in

patriarchal, authoritarian societies, daughters have great value -- they are

property. And the message that she is sending about her own value, about

her place in the White House, and about the place of women in this

administration, I think, are really frightening.
