Donald Trump, The President of the United States, manages to downgrade himself yet another time. Trump’s unethical and demeaning behavior has made the headlines multiple times. So, what is it that he did this time?
Donald Trump has always managed to make controversial comments be it regarding people of color or women. Not only this but many allegations of sexual harassment have surfaced over the years. This time Ivanka Trump’s former best friend and has come forth to spill the truth on Dad Trump’s other dark side.
Did Donald Trump Fat-Shame?
Lysandra Ohrstrom, a journalist for The Observer and Huffington Post, revealed quite a few things in a new exposé for Vanity Fair. Being best friends with Ivanka Trump came with its own virtues and shortcomings, Lysandra learned as an adolescent. Virtues being lifestyle trips to Paris, sleepovers at the Trump Tower, photoshoots, and days shopping in Manhattan together with her former ally. But sometimes, that included having to deal with her father, Donald Trump, who allegedly had no scruple about belittling a young girl for her appearance.
She remembers one comment in particular that always stuck with her. “Though he never remembered my name, he seemed to have a photographic memory for changes in my body,” she writes. “I’ll never forget the time Ivanka and I were having lunch with her brothers at Mar-a-Lago one day, and while Mr. Trump was saying hi, Don Jr. swiped half a grilled cheese sandwich off my plate. Ivanka scolded him, but Mr. Trump chimed in, ‘Don’t worry. She doesn’t need it. He’s doing her a favor.’
Lysandra has detailed other creepy behavior of Mr. President in her essay. She recalls him objectifying girls from the school and overly praise and compliment them.
Ivanka And Lysandra’s Friendship:
Lysandra no more recognizes her best friend from a long time ago. She mentions Ivanka in her essay saying that Ivanka might have spilled water over the image that she worked hard for. She also states that her friends were in dismay when she did not oppose her father’s displeasing and repulsive policies.
Ohrstrom also hopes that Donald’s deeds do not drag down Ivanka’s impression too. But that ship has sailed. She regrets not holding her former friend accountable sooner.
Witnessing body-shaming and fat-shaming in the 21st century is shameful and repugnant.
