Jared Kushner followed up his father-in-law Donald Trump’s post-debate fat shaming of a former Miss Universe with a guest editor column in Variety, where he extolled his wife Ivanka Trump’s virtues, saying she is the best person to handle women’s issues. Well, she’s not the one running for president.
But here he writes a nice piece about his wife anyway:
“In the last week, Ivanka opened a $200-million hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, unveiled a legislative policy to benefit working families and managed to do the first day of school drop-offs and pick-ups for our children — all before Wednesday,” Jared wrote. “Whether preparing to deliver a speech to tens of millions of people at the Republican National Convention, or teaching our kids to swim, Ivanka defines the phrase ‘hands on.’”
Superpower alert! She can also carry snacks, a kid, and sign a pair of shoes she designed all in one swift motion. Here, Jared tells the tale of witnessing such a feat.
“A few years ago, at a large family function, Ivanka was carrying a plate of snacks in one hand and our daughter, Arabella, with the other, when she was approached by a guest holding a Sharpie. The woman took off her heels, handed Ivanka the marker and asked her to sign them — they were Ivanka Trump shoes. The timing was less than ideal, but Ivanka knows that the women who buy her clothes are often like her, busy moms trying to (sometimes literally) balance their work and family lives. Ivanka signed the shoes with a smile and then resumed being supermom to our very busy toddler.”
No mention of Donald yet. There is a plug coming up, two actually, three if you include the family real estate business.
“Ivanka is an amazing wife and devoted mother of our three young children. She runs her own lifestyle company and IvankaTrump.com, is finishing her second book, Women Who Work, and is an executive in her family’s real estate business — all while being under the spotlight and scrutiny that comes with your father running for President.”
Fun fact; many women wear nice dresses and have great legs and a great brain and work full-time and have kids and run a household—many without help. But it is sweet her husband recognizes all she does.
“If you know Ivanka, you have not been surprised to see her emerge during this crazy campaign season as a leader advocating for serious policies to support American women and their families — these are issues she has been championing for years. It took real courage for Ivanka to stand before 35 million Americans, including many who had not previously focused on these issues before, to help advance substantive policies that will dramatically improve U.S. law in favor of all women, parents and children. Grace under pressure is what she does best and I could not be more proud of her.”
