As the Trump administration actively seeks to eliminate reproductive and mental health coverage for millions of women, Ivanka Trump went on the Dr. Oz show to talk about her postpartum depression.
The doctor slammed Ivanka's insensitivity on this one.
Normally, I fully support celebrities openly talking about postpartum depression because it is a huge problem and underreported.— Veronica Ades (@veroniac) September 22, 2017
So unless you are out there, on the frontlines, speaking out LOUDLY to stop Graham-Cassidy from passing, I don't want to hear it.— Veronica Ades (@veroniac) September 22, 2017
Because you KNOW that PP depression is a problem, you KNOW that it's not the woman's fault, and you KNOW how bad it is.— Veronica Ades (@veroniac) September 22, 2017
Let them eat cake, right? We hear you, Ivanka, loud and clear.— Veronica Ades (@veroniac) September 22, 2017
Thank you for this thread. I had PP depression with suicidal thoughts...I had insurance and got treatment...every woman should have access.— Haas Policy (@haaspolicy) September 22, 2017
Lovely to see this on twitter today. Hope you're well xxx— Xand van Tulleken (@xandvt) September 22, 2017
Thank you for championing for mental & physical health. I got turned down multiple times when I wanted to get buy healthcare before.— Gia (@silversilkie311) September 22, 2017
She's beginning her defense as she gave birth right before she and Jared helped to bring Paul Manafort on as campaign manager.— This is not normal (@JamieTFox) September 22, 2017
It's totally valid. A good pick-me-up can be a chocolate chip cookie, or some light treason.— Veronica Ades (@veroniac) September 22, 2017
People would love to see almost anyone but Ivanka raise awareness of postpartum depression.
Yeah, I don't think her admission was ever about awareness. It was just PR points for Ivanka.— rmsteward (@rmsteward) September 22, 2017
I wish Dr. oz would have had an celebrity or just an everyday woman on his show to highlight postpartum depression.— Chris Boyd (@clb0137) September 22, 2017
Will this make it clear to the American people how much this administration is playing them?
