On Wednesday, the Daily Show with Trevor Noah did another segment on First Daughter Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka, who also serves as President Donald Trump's Assistant to the President, was mocked by comedian Michelle Wolf.

Wolf argued that Ivanka is not a voice for feminism in the White House.

In fact, Wolf argued that Ivanka's brand of feminism is one that exists only for rich women.

This isn't feminism, this is 'women be shopping, Ivanka's feminism is the Lululemon model. It's for rich white women, and you can see right through it.

Wolf also cited a passage from Ivanka's 2009 book The Trump Card: Playing to Win in Work and Life.

Sexual harassment is never acceptable, and we must stand against it. At the same time … learn to figure out when a hoot or a holler is indeed a form of harassment and when it’s merely a good-natured tease that you can give back in kind.

And proceeded to mock this advice:

She’s not trying to change the patriarchy, she’s telling women how to silently slide into it, like a DM,

Wolf continued.

So, before you put too much hope in Ivanka, remember: She promotes a brand of feminism that makes her rich by exploiting the very people she's claiming to help. That's not being a feminist — that's being a Trump.
