Ivanka Trump tried to join the #TIMESUP movement but failed spectacularly

Twitter reacts to Ivanka Trump's support of Oprah Winfrey's impassioned Golden Globes speech Ivanka tries to have it both ways: Trump's daughter and #MeToo supporter

"But she's totally misread the whole position and what's going on in the world".

Alyssa Milano has called on U.S. President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka to donate to the Time's Up movement after the First Daughter tweeted her support for the cause.

"Just saw Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes".

But that's the thing about speaking truth to power-to say nothing, or in Ivanka's case, to do nothing, is to by default enable and choose the side of the oppressor, a man who is said to have sexually harassed or assaulted tens of women.

The new campaign, which calls for the end of gender inequality, discrimination and harassment, was the talk of the Golden Globes on Sunday (07Jan18), where Oprah Winfrey gave a powerful speech declaring the time is up on sexism and mistreatment of women, across all colours and classes. "Let's all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP!" the White House adviser wrote on Twitter. Telling others to eradicate sexual harassment is nothing more than a pandering gesture if Ivanka does not take the steps to do so herself.

The tweet was quickly hit with "the ratio", that is the number of replies vastly outnumbered the likes, and the replies were overwhelmingly negative.

Trump, whose efforts to increase paid family leave have yet to bear fruit, has repeatedly defended her father, who has been accused of harassment and assault by at least 17 women.

Her tweet, which came around the same time a clip of her father struggling to remember the words to the national anthem went viral, did not exactly do the trick.

Actor Adam Pally said, "What about the 16 counts of sexual harassment and assault levelled against your dad".

Ivanka has not yet responded to criticism of the tweet.

Oprah won the annual Cecil B DeMille Award at the Golden Globes and the entertainment mogul delivered a rousing speech where she said that soon a time will come when women won't have to say "Me too" ever again.
