Ivanka Trump Wanted her Red Pantsuit to Mean Something. It Didn't.

While opening a task force to solve cold cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women, Ivanka Trump wore red in support of protecting Native rights. It rang hollow to critics.

This week, Trump suited up once more in her Sandro pantsuit for a trip to Bloomington, Minnesota, where she marked the opening of the first Indian Affairs task force office meant to solve cold cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women. (It is an extension of Attorney General William Barr’s Operation Lady Justice initiative.)

Around fifty people came to protest the event, which occurred the same month as her father’s garish Fourth of July fireworks display, which he insisted occur on stolen Native land. Twenty activists were arrested for demonstrating against the event on Mt. Rushmore, where Trump decried protestors as “angry mobs.”

Ivanka, of course, did not stand in solidarity with those calling for Indigenous rights on that day. Instead, she was vacationing with Jared Kushner and their three children, riding horses and trying her hand at fishing somewhere “out west.”

As NBC News reported, Ivanka’s visit came off to some as a “cheap media stunt,” considering her father’s track record. Many longtime organizers who have worked to draw attention to the underreporting of violence against Indigenous women had no idea the bureau would be opening until the very last minute.

1. What do you people want, anyway?!

Ivanka made one of her best last-minute half-assed empty gestures and you're still not satisfied! Did NOBODY notice the red pantsuit?

2. Her clothes are as ill fitting and ugly...

As her dad's.

Her clothing line didn't fail because of her last name. It failed because her taste is in her mouth.

Money doesn't buy class.

7. For a woman who has so much money you would think she could afford a good tailor or dressmaker

Seldom have I seen her in a garment that is well constricted and fitted to her properly. Her clothes remind me of those in the (old) Junior 4-H clothing project style show. The young sewers kind of knew what they were doing, fitting was almost always an issue but they were basically 13-14 year olds still learning. Ivanka is a grown, professional woman of means. Her clothing should be impeccable. Style is personal. Construction and fitting is a totally different story.

10. Seriously, what is with these people and their sartorial disasters?

They have all the money in the world, yet they always look like a bag of ass when they go out in public. If they do have stylists, they should be fired on the spot, and if they don't, they should hire some. I have never seen such a poorly dressed political family in my life.

12. The use of Indian Headdresses as a backdrop prop is also highly direspectful.

The way trump treated the Navaho Code Talkers during their visit to the White House
was horrible. trump is totally ignorant.
