Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, December 27, 2017

A video of first daughters Tiffany and Ivanka Trump blowing kisses to their followers in bikinis is being met with mostly criticism in return online. In the short clip uploaded to Twitter Tuesday, the two women can be seen posing in their bikinis as "O Holy Night" is heard playing in the background while lounging by the pool at their father's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Melania Trump wished fans a Merry Christmas with a Santa-themed selfie on Monday which prompted much criticism on social media from users who found the first lady's facial expression "disgraceful," and too sexy.

"You and your family are so out of touch with reality. Enjoy your vacation while people struggle every day," one person tweeted, while another wrote: "Ugh. I hope my tax dollars aren't going to this mess."

I thought Ivanka was a serious person, or at least a semi-serious person as compared to her Dotardian Pops.

Is she now auditioning for Girls Gone Wild?

Trump family values. Probably the most embarrassing family to ever live in the WH. I could live with the embarrassment though but I do have a problem with the treason and willingness to be owned by Putin. Say it ain't so? Yeah, but you probably also denied it with Nixon, Reagan, Bush 1 and Bush 2 so your opinion is meaningless. They all did it. Yes, Clinton got a BJ in the WH but there is absolutely no evidence that he or any other Democrat committed treason, don't you wish you could say the same thing about former Republican Presidents? But you can't, because they did.

Can you imagine the right if the Obama girls did this? My gosh they would lose

How bow dah, Bomber? If these she-dolts had been the Obama girls, do you suppose you would be so gentle and understanding in their defense?

How bout if President Obama were to say something like "...If they weren't my daughters, I probably would be 'dating' (read 'boning') them". Would you be defending a statement like that?

I'll hang up and wait for an answer.

"If these she-dolts had been the Obama girls, do you suppose you would be so gentle and understanding in their defense?"

Absolutely. I would have told you to leave them the ---- alone...particularly since they're not doing anything that could be considered political or offensive.

"How bout if President Obama were to say something like "...If they weren't my daughters, I probably would be 'dating' (read 'boning') them". Would you be defending a statement like that?"

If you're looking for someone to defend Trump, you'll need to look elsewhere. But this is nothing more than a case of hatred for one person bleeding over onto others who aren't really doing anything worthy of being hated.

But I get that some folks would have found something to bitch about regardless of what Tiffany and Ivanka were doing.

The right wing Christians who voted for Trump would be going balistic were this Obama's daughters. Pretend otherwise but we all no it's so. Personally, I've always considered Ivanka to be a bimbo so I don't really care but I do object to her sitting in on high level meetings. Go lay by the pool fine, pretend to be part of our goverment? Go before a Senate hearing and be confirmed.

When Trump is concocting a spectacularly dishonest claim of a liberal "War on Christmas" so that he can take credit for defeating it, and Christian Trumpers all over the place are celebrating this nonsense, Ivanka and Tiffany's "O Holy Night" bikini selfie is yet another demonstration that everything about this family of huckster con artists is phony. Christmas isn't sacred to them. Only money and fame are. They bring a little more shame to us all with every day that Daddy Grifter is president.

It seems that the Trumps are still acting like the Trumps, which was the very reason why intelligent people knew the had to vote for anyone but Trump.

This discussion has tended toward the fact the girls were by the pool in bathing suits. With women's lib, feminism, and the #MeToo campaign being shown tremendous support throughout America right now it's just funny that people are choosing to get worked up about a photo of two women in bathing suits. It's like they are all closet fundamentalist...or partisans.

You're still being obtuse.

The linked article isn't covering what they did, as you suggest.

It's covering the negative response by a bunch of anonymous nobodies.

It's lazy journalism. Period. Doubly so since it's not really a story worth covering to begin with unless one just wants to bash the Trumps for being Trumps, which is easy enough without resorting to lazy stories like this one.

It's important to remind people that the Trump family says one thing and does another.

It's important to show people what the nation's top policy makers are up to. How they are acting. How they choose to acknowledge important cultural landmarks.

It's important to show and report the voices of ordinary Americans. To let them speak for themselves, instead of letting Trump tell us a false narrative of what the people are saying.

It's important to show what these folks do in their spare time while others work an extra job or visit the soup kitchen to get Christmas meals.

It's important to show these people talk about others being disrespectful in ceremony while they spit on it themselves.

It's important to show how these people are the antithesis of what we need in the competitive global economy.

Showing the numbers doesn't work. Documenting 1500 lies doesn't work. So the idea that there are other tools is weak.

Needle Dick has it right.

Quality over quantity.

Trump and his rotten crotch fruit offspring are scuzzy reprehensible grifters who have no business being the represenive face of the United States of America to the rest of the world -- period.

That's the narrative that needs to be punctuated with the examples spelled out by Tiny Tim..

All hard working patriotic Americans should be embarrassed beyond belief.
