The Woman Donald Trump Cherishes Most of All Is His Orthodox Jewish Daughter Ivanka
Donald Trump has a long list of those against whom he holds a grudge, and often marches through a partial recitation of it at campaign events. But his other list, of those he holds in the highest regard, has one name at the top: Ivanka Trump.
At every stop, he introduces his daughter as smart, beautiful, and a wonderful person. And in the portion of an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity that aired on Wednesday night, he suggested that she’s also his top adviser, on “that whole subject” of “women’s health and women” and beyond that whole subject, too.
“Is there anyone close to you that you count on the most?” Hannity asked.
“She said, ‘Dad, you’ve got to let people know how much you adore women and how you’ll take care of them.”
“I have some very smart people in my organization and my children are very smart,” he answered. “You know Ivanka, how smart, and she’s got a great sense of…”
Hannity interrupted to mention some of Trump’s other offspring: “I know Eric, I know Don…”
But Trump steered him back to the one he had in mind: “Ivanka came to me the other day; it was very interesting. You know with this whole thing with Megyn Kelly”—Hannity’s Fox colleague, who as a moderator of last week’s first GOP presidential debate confronted him about having “called women you don’t like fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.”
“In theory, it’s not a big deal,” Trump said of what he saw as Kelly’s attack on him. But it was Ivanka, he said, who told him he needed to clarify how he does see women.
“Ivanka said, ‘Dad, you love women, you cherish women.’ She said that; she used the word ‘cherish.’” So Trump used it, too.
“She said, ‘You respect women. You have so many women working for you, probably more women executives than male executives.’ She said, ‘Dad, you’ve got to let people know how much you adore women and how you’ll take care of them.’”
To cherish, to adore, to take care of? Those sound more like wedding vows than campaign promises, but Trump thinks he stacks up quite favorably on the woman front, especially when compared to the rival he goes after the most frequently and ferociously, Jeb Bush.
“And right after she said that,” Trump continued, “Jeb Bush came out with that horrible statement where essentially, he’s not going to take care of women’s health issues.” Bush later said that he was talking about cutting federal funding to Planned Parenthood, the country’s leading abortion provider, and putting that money into other health care services for women.
