In another example of liberal hypocrisy in the so-called feminist defense of women, Ivanka Trump was smeared by a “Star Trek” actor with a sexist attack on social media.
Jason Isaacs hurled insults at the first daughter in response to her tweet praising Oprah Winfrey’s “empowering & inspiring speech” at the Golden Globe Awards.
The “Star Trek: Discovery” and “Harry Potter” actor slammed Trump as a “Brainless Barbie” in a tweet on Monday.

His remarks ignited instant reaction online as many, not surprisingly, jumped on the bashing bandwagon. Many others. however, called the actor out for his sexist attack.
Isaacs offered no apology, naturally, but doubled down with another tweet on Tuesday.
To the many critics who have challenged me for the #BrainlessBarbie hashtag in response to @IvankaTrump, an apology: you’re right. One’s a plastically enhanced, deeply mysogynist parody of a woman. The other’s Barbie.

Must be something about “Star Trek” actors as George Takei once also aimed an attack at Ivanka Trump back in November. The actor, a fierce and vocal critic of President Trump, was summarily slammed by Ivanka’s protective brother, Donald Trump Jr.

Isaacs, also a Trump critic, may have found plenty of supporters just as hypocritical as himself to applaud his derogatory tweets but he was served a generous helping of backlash by others who called him out for his bias.
A story about the tweets in Hollywood Life gleefully reported that “fans have been living for Jason’s tweets all day” but then made the hilarious mistake of asking readers to comment.
“His remarks were very rude and he acted like a bully,” one reader commented. “Small minded people have to attack anyone even remotely related to the president. Rather petty.”
Another called the actor “a rude BULLY who needs to shut his pie hole.”
Twitter users followed suit.
Nope, you can insult someone easily enough without using misogyny. I object to these kinds of phrases being used against any woman, whether I like or detest them!

1. Hiding behind a popular political cause so you can lob insults at people you don’t agree with is not enlightened, correct, or morally superior. If your platform is equality, acceptance, and compassion, you don’t get to CHOOSE who you will treat with compassion and equality.

Jason Isaacs talking about yourself, plastic actor, deeply misogynist parody of a human being. Sad that a (have you made the D list yet) actor thinks he matters

You leftist believe in women’s rights but I’ve only heard the most vile stuff about conservative women.

I feel physically ill from this tweet. Disagree w/ someone’s politics, fine, but this is a very personal, vicious attack on a woman. I will never be able to see you perform in any capacity w/o thinking of what an ugly, despicable man you are on the inside.

Hope u now realize ur tweet is an indictment of you than Ivanka. Also hope my judgement’s premature & a 5th grade boy actually hacked your acct. if not, shame on me for believing u really were the handsome, masculine man you often portray. bleech!!!

Attacking women is apparently ok if they don’t have the same political leaning, but Ivanka actually does have the same political leaning as them and they attack her for who her father is. Oh to be as stupid and immature as a leftist. No thanks.
