Skip to comments.Donald Trump's children are not their father - so stop bullying them

It appears that Tiffany Trump became the target of hypocritical bullies at Philipp Plein's New York Fashion Week show on Monday. During the show, Alyssa Vingan Klein, editor-in-chief of Fashionista.com, had tweeted that "no editors want to sit near Tiffany Trump. SHOCKER." Nikki Ogunnaike, senior editor at Elle, responded to the tweet saying that she herself had moved. Ogunnaike also tweeted that the show started late due to fashion designers "fleeing" to avoid sitting next to the First Daughter.
In case petulant fashion editors shunning and shaming the 23-year-old woman wasn't enough, Wall Street Journal columnist and fashion writer Christina Binkley channeled her inner mean-girl, in a "you can't sit with us" moment tweeting photos of Tiffany and the empty seats, also declaring that nobody wants to sit next to her.
Though Binkley has attempted to backpedal following the backlash, and now claims that the seats were unoccupied for less than two minutes, her mockery was itself a form of bullying and cruelty.
The hypocrisy of this public shaming is obvious. Fashion editors, who fill their magazine pages with stories of female empowerment, shunned a woman over the actions of her father. It should not need to be said, in 2017, that a woman's worth is not dependent on the men in her life.
Tiffany, unlike some of her siblings, has even rejected attention over her father's presidency. She has stayed out of the limelight and has not advocated for his policies or taken a role in the White House. She has done absolutely nothing to warrant being cast as a social pariah.

I couldn’t agree more—the left’s behavior is, per usual, appalling and offensive.
On the other hand, I think Eric Trump should be more innovative than to simply file to bring in more low-cost foreign vineyard workers in his Charlottesville vineyard:
Charlottesville is the location of Virginia’s flagship public university, for cripes sake!
Surely these jobs that are described in their application as being as miserable and unrewarding as possible could be cleaned up a bit to give them appeal to college students looking to help fund their educations. It would have been nice to see Eric take the lead in showing how Americans can pitch in to make their jobs appealing for the local job market again—rather than importing (at least legally!) more unskilled immigrant labor.
Oh these editors learned how to be mean girls at their private prep schools, didn’t they?
Bully and shun
Tiffany probably never had to t face this mean girl stuff before. It will make her a stronger, better person
I would like to see her become a spokesperson for anti bullying. Many many young girls can relate
They’re all strong kids.
They’ll wear this as another badge of honor.
The leftists, in the meantime, don’t know the definition of the word.
Sometimes I can’t believe the behavior of the left.
Personally I think she’s a lovely girl and would love to get next to her. How in the Sam hill do these leftists make a political statement about a fashion show??
Everything with the satanic left is about politics. Everything.
They all lead such a boooooring life.
Was watching Varney on FBN this morning. He had a Trump staffer on and when Stuart remarked she was wearing an Ivanka dress, she talked a bit about the shunning of the children. She said Ivanka went to a gym under a pseudonym and when the owner found out he/she told Ivanka not to come back again.
I think that it is very interesting that the very stuff that the left has used the entertainment industry to try and portray conservatives as. is the type of behavior you see coming from the Left.... Show Me a Bully and I will show you a leftist
Remember, the left never practices what it demands of us. They condemn bullying but practice it themselves. They demand we be inclusive, compassionate and understanding but never are like that to those they disagree with. They are viscous, snobbish, trashy people, particular these reformed street wh....s who call themselves fashion experts.
Time to quit the nice. tell them simply “You are a hateful, jealous bully. Everyone knows you are; you fool no one. Shame on you! Go hide in your hole.”
After the Communists took over in Russia and started purging the population of “unreliables” and “enemies of the state” relatives of political enemies were purged along with the main targets, including cousins and neighbors and associates. The tradition is a hundred years old and the left is very traditional minded.
The only thing meaner than a liberal is a JEALOUS liberal woman
...so stop bullying them.”
They seem to think that psychotic, Progressive punks have some sense of honor and responsibility.
(What are they thinking?)
agree - but, you’d have to hurry - as the article said the seats were only vacant for 2 minutes!
Buncha six year olds.
