Ivanka slammed for "White Thanksgiving"

November 24, 2017

Here’s a question for those anti-Trumpers who criticize Ivanka Trump for literally everything she says, wears and does.

What is wrong with you?

After Ivanka simply posted a nice tweet linking to suggestions for creating an interesting centerpiece for a Thanksgiving table, the people who see racism absolutely everywhere couldn’t resist showing their own in their responses. As it happens, one centerpiece featured unusual white pumpkins that had been found in Nashville. Apparently –- though I never would have figured this out on my own –- the use of white pumpkins in a centerpiece has something to do with white supremacy. Ivanka actually got tweets slamming her for the whiteness of the pumpkins. I am not kidding.

Seriously, to anyone out there who has a problem with albino squash: please, get some professional help.

    Love this!! Gov. Huckabee, you have such a great way with the English language...you can send out a zinger or two (very funny!), and the way you word things is awesome. We love you and all that you stand for in our great America!

    When will we start showing love. Why are we so fast to judge, no one knows her heart. Her character shows she is not that type of person;just like her Dad is not that kind of man. Put your focus on making a difference, go help someone today, and stop being petty. Stop pulling the race card, and start showing compassion and Love.
    It will make the world a better place.. Let’s tweet kindness, Love and compassion, boy wouldn’t that change things! ??

    There are those who would criticize God himself. If the media hype was not so often overwhelming, I would say leave those poor unfortunates alone to wallow in their own discontent. But some legislator somewhere will no doubt capitalize on their misery and propose some absurd law, or some school district will ban something for reasons unknown -like the NY State school that banned rosary beads as gang related (the ACLJ made them see reason). I eat candied sweet potatoes with brown sugar. I wonder what they would say about me. Suggestion:get a job and work for a living like the rest of us.

    A pumpkin is a pumpkin.
    A human being is a human being.
    A nut is someone who cloaks themselves in misery, hatred, spitefulness and condemnation in spite of the fact the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and God is good.

    Thank you, Mike Huckabee, for being a voice of reason. I’m wondering if the “gray” pumpkins were promoting the interests of baby boomers (sarcasm, if not apparent). Bitterness has all kinds of manifestations & can distort perceptions. People have lost their minds.

    The ones calling "Racism" & "Racist" all the time are the TRUE Racists! The Left is full of them and utilize their own hatreds as a means of attempting to divide the rest of the nation. A divided country is easier to take over and control!

    I think the centerpiece was beautiful. Only the jerks who were looking for something to find fault with, would have said those mean things. Ivanka, please keep being the nice, sweet person that you are now. It wouldn't have mattered which centerpiece you had posted, they would have not liked it. I love you & all your family. Keep up the good work you are doing.

    We are more racist that ever after the last 8 years. You would think it would have been the opposite. The former President divided us and took us back 20 years in race relations. My personal opinion is that it was done on purpose and the goal was to take America down as far as possible. That is his legacy.
    How miserable does one have to be that they only see bad in everything? How empty the shell. You only put down that which you either fear or envy.

    Goodness, I've been using white pumpkins for over 10 years. I also spray paint them gold and silver. Shows how stupid these folks are. A white pumpkin is just another strain of the pumpkin family. Obviously they are some big city slickers who never visited a farm. Next thing they will take on a spotted cow. stt

    Can only recommend that these dweebs definitely need to find "a job!" Too much time on their "idle hands." And, everyone knows what idle hands breed.

    One other comment, Governor: The page that requires a sign in to comment has a Facebook only option. Since I have opted out of Faceybooky, they want too much personal info for me to participate, I and many others can not comment. Site programmer, perhaps, can update, for Twitter, Yahoo, Disqus or other options?

    You know Mike, it seems to me like there are a lot of immature, Juvenal kid stuff going on in this great nation of ours these days. Are we going into regression? As a guy 85 years old I find it very heartbreaking to see what is going on with people and especially the politicians. Too bad, how sad. We have a president and his family trying desperately to get this country back to being great again and they are having to put up with this crazy nonsense. I am enjoying your articles and comments, so keep them coming.

    Wouldn't it be nice if we all had the lovely manners the Trump's have? They have been so refreshing in so many ways, and it's such a joy to have them. I've never seen a more attractive family, and I feel proud of America when the president travels to other countries representing us. I would be happy if the Lord blessed them in a very special way, because of all they are sacrificing to try and help this country.

    The country is being slowly lead down the path to socialism by the likes of Bush, Clinton, Sanders, Schummer, and all socialistically minded republicans. The money for this largess does not come from the pockets of the Bush,s, Obama, Clinton etc. etc. but rather from the hard working American whether he/she may be employee or small employer. Sooner or later we are going to just quit producing then what will happen? I see people risking all, opening up shop even though ill with the flu or whatever. Then in turn being demonized by the "social justice" crowd of those with excellent rhetoric but lousy results in producing something that people eat, wear, live in etc.
    I myself scaled down my business because of the outrageous taxes I paid. I worked less, earned less and paid less taxes. I am going to get off the soap box. think you get the drift.
    Thank you,

    Off the topic but I have seen Trump aggressively pursuing Tax Reform and Obama Care but I haven't heard of any efforts to downsize the government. If I were Trump, I would order each major government entity chief to immediately make staff cuts. If sufficient cuts aren't made, Trump should inform the chief that he is no longer employed. Let's start with cutting 50% of the 89,000 IRS employees.

    Just curious...Do the detractors Have their center pieces, their kitchen walls and counter tops, tables, chairs and flooring all black? Or brown? If they did, would it be a sign of racism? I think not. More likely, just poor taste, NOT A CRIME.

    It's just a centerpiece for crying out loud! Why read more into it than that? What are people making a big negative deal about it? Have people become to stupid and their brain isn't working or what? Land sakes, people, get a life! Quit being pessimistic and become optimistic and encouraging! I feel sorry for people that always have to find something wrong with everything.

    A year-and-a-half ago, we had a white passenger car and two white trucks. Now I have a dark blue truck, a silver truck, and one of the original white trucks. Does this mean that once bought vehicles based solely on color, that my values and opinions on race have changed, or that I simply needed to change vehicles and these are what we ended up with? This fixation on race and color is truly bizarre, but not at all unexpected or unanticipated given the lame-stream-media's fixation on bringing our ways of thinking into line with the "newthink/newspeak" age we seem to be living in.

    They are SO DAMN SICK... it's pathetic!!

    I have an idea... Just for the Fun of it!
    President Donald Trump should tweet something like this:

    "I have it, on Good Authority, that the MOON is really made of Cheese! The cheese is supposed to be better than what we have here on earth. I think we should plan a mission to go there and haul as much of that cheese back to here at home!"

    Just to see how they attack it!! Would be fun! Eh?

    OK, Donald... the ball is in your court now... Hit it OUT! :) <3

    Ivanka Trump is a young woman who conducts herself with grace and elegance and obviously enjoyed sharing an idea for creating a special holiday centerpiece that anyone would enjoy seeing on their dinner table. This is not racism, it is creativity. I feel deeply saddened for those who through hatred and narrow mindedness would harbor their own kind of racism. God chose to bless man with not only orange pumpkins but with blue and with white pumpkin. Variety is the spice of life and creativity is an amazing process of mixing a variety together. ??

  • M. Diane Starn

    11/25/2017 07:37 PM

    Ivank's centerpiece is lovely and has nothing to do with "white supremacy" or politics. I'm sorry society is so petty and hateful. Very sad. Who says a person can't use colors other than orange and brown for Thanksgiving? I admire her creative ability.

    Apparently these anti-Trump people ran out of subjects on what to accuse Mr Trump with. Therefore, they are starting to wrongly accuse the first daughter now for inappropriate action. I don’t care how old the president’s kids are. They have to leave such kids alone. End of story!!!??
