One such powerful, fiercely intelligent woman is Ivanka Trump, of course. Like Donald Trump, Ivanka is a graduate of the prestigious Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and President Trump has relied on her for her sound judgment and insight. Unfortunately, showboating Reverend Al Sharpton cannot accept seeing this woman in such a high position of power, and tried to smear her.
Said Sharpton recently, trying to equate successful businesswoman and mother to Obama’s teenage daughters, “If President Barack Obama had given his daughters or his mother-in-law an office and some access to classified documents and cleared security status, they would have run him and everybody else out (of) the White House.”
He added, “Giving a office on the West Wing of Ivanka Trump, somebody explain to me how you can give security clearance, access to classified material, and a office to somebody that don’t have a title or job?” He then resorted to using improper English, continuing, “They say now she ain’t got no title. She ain’t got no role. We ain’t payin’ her no money. But she can see everything classified.”
Unfortunately for Sharpton, he was swiftly corrected by Ivanka’s ethics adviser Jamie Gorelick, who confirmed that all of Ivanka’s actions are squarely within the law. Stated Gorelick, “Our view is that the conservative approach is for Ivanka to voluntarily comply with the rules that would apply if she were a government employee, even though she is not.
