Ivanka Trump delivered a speech on women’s empowerment in Tokyo to a handful of attendees. Ivanka giving a speech on empowering women is like a cannibal’s daughter offering recipe ideas. After all, Donald Trump just replaced the most powerful woman in the U.S. with a less qualified man. Janet Yellen is out and Jerome Powell is in as the next chair of the Federal Reserve. The daughter of the man who believes “You have to treat ’em (women) like shit” thinks she qualifies as a voice for women.
Ivanka Trump spoke to the World Assembly for Women to address sexual harassment and women’s empowerment in front of the half-empty venue in Tokyo.
Although officials reportedly said the lackluster crowd was due to stringent security and said that it was the most registered event of the three-day assembly, the Guardian reports that they arrived at the hall 10 minutes before the event began and witnessed no long lines of people waiting to get inside.
It doesn’t look like a very enthusiastic crowd to me.

“All too often, our workplace culture fails to treat women with appropriate respect,” Ivanka told the crowd. “This takes many forms, including harassment, which can never be tolerated.”

It was just this past week that White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that all of the women who have accused Trump of sexual harassment are lying.
Donald Trump will arrive in Japan on Sunday to kick off a 12-day visit that includes stops in South Korea, China, Vietnam and the Philippines.
Meanwhile, the walls are closing in on Trump as Mueller investigates his associates. So, just ahead of his visit, he spent Friday morning lashing out in his Twitter timeline at ‘Crooked Hillary,’ ‘Pocahontas’ and ‘Crazy Bernie’ Sanders.
