Ivanka Trump warned to stay quiet after speaking out about sexual assault allegations


First daughter Ivanka Trump's harsh statement about Republican Senate candidate Roy Moore drew some backlash from Breitbart this week. 

Breitbart editor-in chief Alex Marlow said the first daughter and adviser should stay quiet, especially given the allegations against her father. 

On Thursday’s edition of SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily, he implied that it wasn’t Ivanka’s place to comment.

“Right, especially when there's been so many allegations against President Trump," he said.

ALEX MARLOW: Ivanka [Trump] made a very strange statement because she came out, with guns ablazing saying there's a special place in hell for child predators and that she believes the accusers. But she also -- she didn't say that Roy Moore needs to step aside. So, she didn't do that, because President Trump hasn't called for that. So, I'm guessing she's going to take some heat from the left also. So again, were we really dying for Ivanka's opinion on this? Can we not get Ivanka's opinion on some of these things? Can she just go work on her tax thing that she's working on and just leave us alone? But Mike, go ahead.

CALLER: Well, when Donald was being accused of these things where there was definitely more proof and more opportunity, where was she then? But now she's all outraged by Roy Moore. I don't know why she just doesn't keep quiet.

MARLOW: Right, especially when there's been so many allegations against President Trump, I don't know why the daughter of President Trump who has been accused by [attorney] Gloria Allred and some dozen, maybe two dozen, women over the years doing something inappropriate, and nothing's ever come of that. So why does Ivanka want to continue to pile on? I don't know. I think that she just loves getting her name out there in the headline and they can put more photos up. So that's her ammo.

Ivanka Trump spoke out on the allegations against Moore in an interview with the Associated Press earlier this week. 

“There’s a special place in hell for people who prey on children,” Ivanka Trump said. “I’ve yet to see a valid explanation, and I have no reason to doubt the victims’ accounts.”

Moore has been accused of having a sexual encounter with a 14-year-old girl when he was 32 years old. Since that initial report, several other women have come forward saying Moore pursued relationships with them when they were teenagers.

President Donald Trump has yet to directly address the allegations, but several Senate Republicans are calling for Moore to drop his bid.
