Why Did Ivanka Trump ‘Like’ An Article Describing How Father Donald Trump Said It Was Cool To Call Her A ‘Piece Of Ass’?


I was looking through Twitter today when I discovered a peculiar thing on Ivanka Trump’s Twitter account.

Ivanka has liked only 1,058 tweets on Twitter since she joined in June 2009. Shockingly, the latest “like” is on this tweeted article from the Huffington Post, detailing how her father Donald Trump told Howard Stern that it was “fine” to describe his daughter (Ivanka) as a “piece of ass.”

The Huffington Post piece leads by saying:

Examples of Donald Trump’s misogyny have been piling up since footage was released on Friday of him bragging about groping women. Now, it’s emerged that the GOP presidential nominee once gave radio host Howard Stern permission to call his daughter, Ivanka Trump, a “piece of ass.”

Trump was talking to Stern about his daughter, who was then 23 years old, in a 2004 interview, CNN reported Saturday.

“By the way, your daughter,” Stern said to Trump.

“She’s beautiful,” the brash businessman responded.

“Can I say this? A piece of ass,” Stern asked.

“Yeah,” Trump replied.

The Huffington Post — generally no friend to Donald Trump and his policies — in this article penned a scathing rebuke of Donald Trump, calling him a number of unflattering things.

I can’t imagine then, why his daughter Ivanka liked it. Is she quietly angry at her father for all the nasty things he’s said? Did her finger just slip when she meant to click something else? Was a staffer surfing on her account by mistake and “like” the article? Does that staffer secretly hate Donald Trump even when working for Ivanka? The questions are endless.
