‘The graft goes through the kids’: Maher compares Ivanka Trump to palace-dwelling sons of Saddam Hussein

uring the “Overtime” segment of HBO’s Real Time, host Bill Maher questioned first daughter Ivanka Trump’s role in the White House — comparing her unfavorably to the sons of Saddam Hussein.

Posing a question submitted by viewer, Maher asked, “Do you think Ivanka Trump is an effective advocate for women in the White House?”

Author Annabelle Gurwitch was appalled.

“No,” she replied. “If she had any integrity she wouldn’t have accepted an office in the White House. We don’t do that in this country, that’s banana republic. We separate our family from our government.

“Here is a woman who does not have any policy experience,” she continued, to which Maher replied, “Well, she said a few months earlier, ‘I just want to be a daughter, I’m not going to do anything.’ They’re such liars.”
