Is Ivanka Trump really on her father’s side? Has she given him a year’s worth of bad advice, such as telling him to fire FBI Director James Comey, so that he would be sent to prison? Did she sabotage his favorite Senate candidate in Alabama purely to humiliate him? These are all questions that have been swirling for the last year. Now Ivanka has posted a weird new tweet which appears to warn Donald Trump that “time’s up” while endorsing Oprah Winfrey.

Here’s what Ivanka tweeted Monday night: “Just saw Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP! #United” Let’s be absolutely clear about a few things. First, she posted this tweet right after Oprah’s people informed the media that Oprah might run for President in 2020. So Ivanka just endorsed her father’s would-be challenger. Then she added on the “time’s up” hashtag which was started as a rebuke of her father and many other sexual assaulters like him.
Numerous female public figures united ahead of the Golden Globes to make the “Time’s up” campaign, which is a warning to men who have abused their power by harassing or assaulting women. Donald Trump is the most infamous of the male public figures who fit that description. He has been accused of sexual assault by about twenty women. He’s been recorded bragging about sexually assaulting women right after he meets them!
There is no way that Ivanka Trump isn’t completely aware that the “Time’s up” campaign is partly aimed at her own father. It’s also unlikely that Ivanka didn’t know about Oprah’s potential presidential campaign when she posted the above tweet. Why is Ivanka throwing her own father under the bus in public? All the people around him seem more eager to betray him than ever.
