The liberal celebrity spoke as “one Jewish mother to another” while delivering acceptance speech, which was at turns hilarious and biting.
Now we have seen enough of First Daughter Ivanka Trump to know that she is a combination of natural beauty, elegance and intelligence. But it seems like not everyone can see her in the same way. Last Saturday night one big celebrity star directly assaulted Ivanka Trump.
It is common for us to see a famous celebrity publicly slam Trump’s Family. All they want is to attend to a major event, and use it to attack some of them. So it comes as no surprise when Debra Messing, the “Will & Grace” star called out President Trump in a scathing speech at the GLAAD Media Awards in New York City on Saturday. But she saved her most biting comments for first daughter Ivanka Trump. She directly addressed her.
The liberal celebrity spoke as “one Jewish mother to another” while delivering acceptance speech, which was at turns hilarious and biting. Instead of celebrating the award, and speak some meaningful words, she chose to slam Ivanka Trump.
“To paraphrase Charles Dickens, this year has sucked,” Messing said. “Our democracy and humanity have been under attack. But unless you are an unenlightened straight, cisgender, white male, you are a target … There is a very bad and very orange man in our White House.”
She doesn’t stop here, as she went on to say that she wanted to make a “direct appeal” to Ivanka Trump, whom she called the “secretary of state.”
“It is not enough to simply say that women’s issues are important to you,” she said to loud applause. “It’s time to do something. You can change the lives of millions of women and children just by telling your dad stories about real people who are suffering.”
Messing said she wanted Ivanka to “stop blindly defending” her father and start “defending what you say you believe in.”
