The Handmaid's Tale Reality: Ivanka Trump IS Serena Joy

The Handmaid's Tale Reality: Ivanka Trump IS Serena Joy

Mind you: this MyTake is only for those who've watched the show - otherwise it won't be as entertaining.

In the twilight of women's rights Ivanka Trump is playing the same role that Yvonne Strahovski is playing in the popular and amazing new series The Handmaid's Tale.

The Handmaid's Tale Reality: Ivanka Trump IS Serena Joy

Let's go through the similarities:

> she was all for it from the beginning - she was probably the one that egged him on and perhaps it was partly even her idea

> she thinks the world is better off now than it was a few months back

> she's shares the same mindset as him - no matter how much she tries to fool the public - she puts on a sweet face in public, but is actually manipulative and selfish indulging only her own interests

> she likes talking about nonsense when bigger problems are brewing

> she is complicit - turns a blind eye in hopes it will lead her to something she wants

The only difference being: Ivanka is only the tyrant's daughter (although he'd be fine if it were more)...

  • I think that's a tad dramatic. You must have a wild imagination if you think our society will be comparable to the one in "The Handmaid's Tale" after just 4 years of Trump's presidency - who, let's not forget, is checked by dozens of other people with conflicting views, who hold equally powerful positions in our government (albeit ones with less media coverage than the presidency).

  • I don't see how this is related to trump's presidency, or just because of one wellknown public sexist guy, it seems more of a common theme that runs in Asia and middle east where women are seen as incubators for breeding programs, to pump out out kids for survival purposes. They are also placed with an expiry date reaching 25 years of living then deemed as useless and unattractive in society. In Japan if you are after 30, married life and raising kids is expected. Sexism is huge over there.

  • What a joke. You leftist dupes ignore the real savagery towards women in the Muslim world, which, to their immense credit, the Trump women DID NOT submit when visiting there.

    "> she likes talking about nonsense when bigger problems are brewing"

    Projection, theatre and all that.

  • I haven't seen it yet, but I don't think that Ivanka is as good actress as Yvonne. Maybe she is just using her dad's political influence in order to become famous.

  • I'm really disappointed in Ivanka. She has power to influence her father so that regular citizens can have a better life. As a member of the childfree community, living in the world of the Handmaid's Tale would be hell and it would be smart to not say that I don't want children, in that universe. What's really sad is that all events in The Handmaid's Tale are inspired by real life events that have taken place in the US or somewhere in the world. By the way, conservatives who use the argument, "that it can be worse." First of all, that is a distraction technique. Obviously it can be hell of a lot worse. It can also be a hell of a lot better too. Yvonne Strahovski is amazing by the way. I loved her as Sarah in Chuck but it's nice to see her as a villain.

  • Ivanka is a brilliant role model for women everywhere whether it be as a working mother and wife, buissness woman, author, her religious faith, her charity work, as a model, her high level of education, her foreign language skills, her skill as an orator, as a fashion designer, her political activism or her women's rights work. She has smashed through that glass ceiling and shown just how much a woman can accomplish.
    Naturally Ivanka gets a lot of hate for who her father is or anti-Semitic leftwingers or bitchy women that hate how men are attracted to her and of course radical man hating feminists with a bad case of internalised mysogny but like her or hate her she certainly deserves respect as a strong female role model.
