Eric Trump: Ivanka ‘Has Done More for Women’ Than Anyone in DC

A new art exhibit at a Washington museum shows an Ivanka Trump lookalike pushing a vacuum cleaner and invites spectators to toss crumbs for her to clean up.

Ivanka wasn't impressed by the gallery either, saying "women can choose to knock each other down or build each other up". "I choose the latter".

In a press release, the gallery claims it was inspired by Trump's public persona that "incorporates an nearly comically wide range of feminine identities" including "daughter, wife, mother, sister, model, working woman, blonde", adding that the art piece "is simultaneously a visual celebration of a contemporary feminine icon; a portrait of our own relationship to that figure; and a questioning of our complicity in her role-playing".

What's the artist's interpretation?

The first daughter's followers have called her a "class act", praising her for a "gracious and classy response".

On Tuesday Eric Trump defended his sister and criticized the exhibition, saying she 'has done more for women than anyone in Washington D.C'. The organization is now planning to host performances of the piece nightly through February 17.

The performance is being staged by arts group CulturalDC for two hours every night until 17 February, and is also being live-streamed online.

It's also exciting, but that really only comes when I'm in the auto . "To continue to improve, this is the best situation that can happen to me", he said.

"By the way", Trump continued, "a woman who has done arguably more for women in this country than nearly anyone else, I mean, the things that she works on day to day and the major accomplishments we have seen in this administration thanks to my sister-in-law, Ivanka Trump, are incredible".

"Sad, but not surprising to watch self professed "feminists" launching sexist attacks against Ivanka".

The installation, sponsored by Cultural D.C. and housed less than a mile from the White House, features a "woman bearing a striking resemblance to that Ivanka, cleaning a plush pink carpet" with a vacuum, a the organization said. That is the icky truth at the center of the work. "It's amusing, it's pleasurable, it makes us feel powerful, and we want to do it more", Rubell said.

Replying directly to Ms Trump online, Ms Rubell said she would like for her to "form [her] own direct response".

Her brothers also slammed the work.

"Think about that hypocrisy", he said of the exhibit. A giant pile of white bread crumbs are kept in front of the art from which people can pick and throw some at the vacuum cleaner.
