If Ivanka Trump sees Oprah Winfrey as competition for a future presidential run, she wasn't showing it Monday when she praised Oprah's Golden Globes speech. "Just saw @Oprah's empowering & inspiring speech at last night's #GoldenGlobes. Let's all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP," Trump tweeted, nabbing 10,000 likes and 16,000 mostly negative replies, "complete with middle-finger emojis, plenty of 'lol,' and fighting words," per USA Today.

"This is the most hypocritical, clueless statement in her regrettable time in the WH," wrote conservative blogger Jennifer Rubin, calling the first daughter "part of the problem." Meanwhile, Alyssa Milano helpfully supplied a link for Ivanka Trump to make "a lofty donation to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund that is available to support your father's accusers."
