Earlier this week, Donald Trump offered a solution for the one in four women who face harassment in their workplace: Just quit your job. Excited to say goodbye to income and health benefits and enter the realm of unemployment, women across the world clambered to submit their two-week notice, only to be interrupted by a younger Trump with a better idea. According to Eric, women just need to be stronger to avoid harassment.
He followed his father’s example and used the hypothetical situation in which Ivanka gets harassed in her office. “Ivanka is a strong, powerful woman. She wouldn’t allow herself to be objected [sic] to it,” Eric said Tuesday in an interview with CBS This Morning. “And by the way, you should certainly take it up with human resources. And I think she definitely would, as a strong person. At the same time, I don’t think she would allow herself to be subjected to it.”
Earlier this year, Kelly’s colleague Gretchen Carlson filed a lawsuit against Fox News chairman Roger Ailes, which seemed like a pretty “strong” response. The best solution, of course, would probably be for men to stop harassing women.
