Kurtz: In a Liberal Admin, Ivanka Would Be a 'Cover Girl Star'

(Fox News)

Fox News analyst and media critic Howie Kurtz defended Ivanka Trump, saying the beating she has taken in the press this week is actually resentment toward her father, adding that in a liberal administration, the first daughter would be a "cover girl star."

Ivanka has been slammed in the press for remarks at a women's forum in Germany where she asserted that her father, President Donald Trump, was a champion for women and families.

"It seemed like the floodgates opened and the criticism, some of it, so personal, snarky, even vicious, that it makes me wonder what is really going on," Kurtz said. "You have to think, if Ivanka Trump was a White House aide in a liberal administration, she'd be a cover girl star or getting all kinds of praise and plaudits."

Kurtz said criticisms of nepotism and/or Ivanka's lack of true separation from the businesses of the Trump Organization are all fair game.

"But there seems to be an underlying attitude that Ivanka Trump either shouldn't be working for her father at all, shouldn't be defending her father, or should somehow magically be transforming her father into a moderate . . . none of that is realistic," Kurtz said.

"Part of this is a resentment toward the president's daughter, and sort of holding her accountable for everything he's ever said about women in a way that strikes me as unfair," Kurtz said.

Kurtz said the fair thing would be to judge Ivanka on her actions, not those of her father.

"Maybe a truly feminist approach would be to judge Ivanka Trump on what she actually does in the White House, not on their distaste for her dad," Kurtz wrote.
