Default Ivanka Trump Targeted

The New York Daily News--in an apparent tantrum over President Trump's approval of the official moving of Israel's capital from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem--just recently described her as "daddy's little ghoul": NY Daily News: Ivanka Is Daddy's Little | The Daily Caller

I suppose it is understandable (if rather unseemly) for the media--at least, many of them--to go after President Trump. After all, he has not exactly been gentle on them, either.

But to go also after his family--well, that is just out of bounds, according to any reasonable standards of decency...

Nothing is out of bounds in this current environment of rabid media and vitriol.

I remember clearly the hiss and spit if anything was said about the Obama daughters, and while I do not believe in messing with ANYBODY's kids, the same standards are not being applied to Trump's family.

I almost can't wait until this circus is over, in the vague hopes that some of the feces flinging will subside.

when he made 'his family' part of his administrative staff, they became fair game.

Obama stood his daughters up on the stage during the campaign, then proclaimed they were off limits in politics.

You can't have it both ways. If you use them they are fair game to everyone.

Everything is "different" when it comes to the Obama's. If you even thought 'bout sayin' somethin' negative 'bout Michelle or their daughters you would be crucified. But it's perfectly acceptable to attack and say the nastiest things 'bout Ivanka and Melania.

The liberal world of hypocrisy is vast.
