The Democrats are looking to change a rule banning hats in Congress to accommodate members who wear religious headwear — and Ivanka Trump is conveniently in support.
"Important rule change for Congress to make..." the first daughter and senior White House advisor tweeted early Monday morning.
Omar, who will also be the first member of Congress to wear a headscarf, co-authored the proposal along with Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and incoming Rules Chairman Jim McGovern. Omar was born in Somalia and came to the U.S. as a refugee.
Once again, Ivanka's message smacks of paying lip service to women's empowerment. We can't help but remember that she said nothing when President Donald Trump announced a travel ban on seven Muslim-majority countries — and has not said or done anything about the issue since. Instead, she took this selfie with Jared as the country erupted in protests over the executive order.
