Trump came down that escalator in Trump Tower to an audience he had to pay to be there to announce his candidacy and he was a total joke to every Republican everywhere; an absolute Ivanka has to be all kinds of fucked up and rage-full. At this point, though, I have zero empathy for her.

Suburban women used to be a major asset for the Republican Party. Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge performed much better in the Philadelphia suburbs during the 1990s than he did in Philadelphia Proper; suburban women, from Orange County to La Jolla to Glendale and Burbank, played an important prominent role in many GOP victories back when California was still a red state. But during the Trump era, many suburban women have been leaning Democrat — and the GOP's problems with suburban women are the focus of new articles by The Atlantic and Politico, which reports that President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is hoping that his daughter, White House Senior Adviser Ivanka Trump, can win over suburban women for the president.

'Our house is on fire': Suburban women lead a Trump revolt

  'Our house is on fire': Suburban women lead a Trump revolt TROY, Mich. (AP) — She walks with the determination of a person who believes the very fate of democracy might depend on the next door she knocks on, head down, shoulders forward. She wears nothing fussy, the battle fatigues of her troupe: yoga pants and sneakers. She left her Lincoln Aviator idling in the driveway, the driver door open -- if this house wasn’t the one to save the nation, she can move quickly to the next. For most of her life,For most of her life, until 2016, Lori Goldman had been politically apathetic. Had you offered her $1 million, she says, she could not have described the branches of government in any depth. She voted, sometimes.

Journalist Elaine Godfrey, in The Atlantic, discusses a new generation of suburban female activists —who, she stresses, are working hard to get Trump voted out of office. In her article, headlined "Revenge of the Wine Moms," Godfrey explains, "These women aren't just expressing their outrage by voting in high-stakes national elections; they're funneling their energy toward a collection of smaller targets, including statehouse races, local party organizations and school boards. And all of this activism has the potential to shape American politics in a much more significant way than their biennial votes."

However, Godfrey wonders how long this "zealous engagement" of suburban women will last. Godfrey asks, "Is America entering a new age of activism — or is all of this just a Trump-era blip?"

"You start creating more justices to get the opinions you want," he said. "It's almost like 'well I gotta win and I'm just gonna create new facts.' " But Laws said that she supports adding justices to the Supreme Court, adding that it shouldn't be called court packing. "I believe it should be called court evening," Laws said. She said that she believes that the "minority shouldn't be ruling the majority," adding that the "the majority of the country is pro choice.

Godfrey notes that in Ohio, one group of anti-Trump suburban female activists is GrassRoots Resistance, which was formed in late 2016 after Trump won the election. That anti-Trump group has since "grown to 150 members," according to Godfrey.

"They've channeled their energies toward fundraising and door-knocking for candidates, and they've given themselves hand cramps writing hundreds upon hundreds of get-out-the-vote postcards," Godfrey says of GRR. "For many of the GRR women, the group served as a kind of gateway drug, introducing them to other political projects of varying magnitude. A handful of members joined — and remade — the Ward 17 Club; others signed up for the League of Women Voters."

Godfrey also points out that "some on the political left have dismissed these women, many of them white, as 'wine moms' or 'MSNBC moms' — silly, unprincipled newcomers to the political scene who are more interested in watching Rachel Maddow with a glass of pinot in hand than agitating for systemic change. Black women in particular have been organizing for decades, forming the backbone of the Democratic Party. Where were the wine moms in 2016, leftists wonder, when 53% of white women supported Donald Trump?"

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump threatened to sue an anti-Trump super PAC for putting up billboards showing them smiling next to the US COVID-19 death toll

  Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump threatened to sue an anti-Trump super PAC for putting up billboards showing them smiling next to the US COVID-19 death toll Kushner and Trump called for the immediate removal of the billboards but The Lincoln Project said they will stay up.The two billboards, which were funded by The Lincoln Project, were unveiled Friday. The group was formed late last year by former Republicans who wanted to stop President Donald Trump's reelection.

Ms Trump launched a women ’s entrepreneurship fund, which is run out of the World Bank and funded mostly by the Gulf states. Mr Trump has also been encouraging talk of dynastic succession. Last week he tweeted an image of Trump He had also thought about making her head of the World Bank.

But the Atlantic journalist adds, "What the critics may be missing, though, is the scope of these women's influence — and their role in strengthening the Democratic Party's infrastructure. Despite the fact that most Democrats are concentrated in urban areas, resistance groups have sprung up all over the country, from the Arizona desert to rural Pennsylvania."

In the 2018 midterms, suburban women played a major role in the blue wave that gave Democrats a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives — and journalist Anita Kumar, in Politico, reports that President Trump's reelection campaign is hoping that Ivanka Trump will be able to help the GOP win back some of the suburban women who have been voting Democrat.

"In the past six weeks, Trump has made personal appeals for her father at 17 campaign stops, engaging in intimate question-and-answer sessions where she tells stories about the president," Kumar explains. "She's made stops at local businesses to pose with children in Halloween costumes. She's bought cider and doughnuts. She's rolled out bread for baking. It's the traditional politicking that is hard to imagine coming from any other Trump family member, let alone President Donald Trump himself."

Trump and Biden are both betting on the suburbs to win the 2020 election, but only one of them understands what that means

  Trump and Biden are both betting on the suburbs to win the 2020 election, but only one of them understands what that means Trump and Biden are fighting over suburban votes and identity, but their debate ignores a strange fact: The suburbs are everywhere, and nowhere.President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are both aiming to lock down votes in an essential middle ground between largely Democratic cities and just as Republican rural areas: suburbs.

Ivanka Trump has had a softer, very different tone from her father or her combative, snarky brother, Donald Trump, Jr. — who is wildly popular with the president's far-right MAGA base but repulses moderates.

"(Ivanka's) brothers, Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, and her sister-in-law, Lara Trump, are mostly sent out to throw red meat to Trump's conservative base," Kumar observes. "So, Ivanka Trump has become the de facto head of the eleventh-hour campaign to appeal to swing voters — specifically, the white college-educated women who helped propel the president's come-from-behind victory in 2016."

Ivanka Trump has been campaigning for her father in a long list of battleground states, from Arizona to Pennsylvania to Florida. But Debbie Walsh, director of the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University in New Jersey, has her doubts about how effective it will be with the suburban women President Trump has been alienating.

Walsh told Politico, "The reality is that women voters are looking at the substance of what's happened. It's kind of late, three weeks out, to try suddenly to be having a different tone and tenor. I don't think she alone can make up for what these women have been seeing the last four years."
