"Well, I think a lot of the sensationalism around this was orchestrated largely by the media," said Ivanka, in an interview with the media. "Look -- my father is very blunt, he's very direct, he is not gender specific in his criticism of people and people that he doesn't particularly like or people that he does like but thinks they're wrong on a particular issue."
And yet, while Ivanka insists her father isn't gender specific, it's kind of impossible to forget about the many horrible things he's said about women over the years. From telling a female journalist "you wouldn't have your job if you weren't beautiful" to saying he doesn't mind bad press "as long as you've got a young and beautiful piece of ass," (among countless other examples) -- Trump can't help but insult women.
Still, Ivanka says, he'd be "amazing" for women if he were elected president.
"He's always supported and encouraged women and, truthfully, he's proven that over decades," said Ivanka. "He'd be amazing for women in this country. He would be incredible for women in this country."
