Hope you weren't banking on Ivanka to save the dayFrom: email@example.com

Ivanka Trump, first daughter, strode into Washington back in January
with big promises: She was passionate about helping “working women,”
she said, and she was going to close the gender wage gap even if it
Well, not if it killed her, not literally, but even if it mildly
inconvenienced her, she was on it 110 percent, for the women. Well, not
if it mildly inconvenienced her, she’s very busy, but definitely if
there was a wage transparency policy already in place, she would not
openly and glowingly support overturning it.
Well, unless her dad wanted to overturn it because doing so satisfied
two of his top 10 vindictive fixations (constraining women’s
independence and destroying the legacy of America’s first black
president), but Ms. Trump would absolutely offer a better replacement
solution, such as saying the words “child care credit” and “female
entrepreneurs” repeatedly near a camera while wearing a blush-pink
toggle coat. That, ladies, is the Ivanka Guarantee. Enjoy your money!
Ms. Trump’s self-professed commitment to corporate gender parity (about
as milquetoast as feminism gets, but in Trump’s America, radicalism is
relative) was trotted out incessantly during the campaign, especially
as an antidote to her father’s self-professed commitment to
nonconsensually sticking his hands on women’s genitals.
