Quincy Jones, a legend in the music industry, has just called Ivanka Trump a “‘motherf–—.”

What else to say — except maybe, where are all the screaming feminists and pink-hatted anti-President Donald Trump protesters now?

Jones made the eye-opening remark in an interview with Vulture, which opened its piece rather laughably — considering what’s to come — this way: “In both music and manner, Quincy Jones has always registered — from afar anyway — as smooth, sophisticated and impeccably well-connected.”

It’s a rollicking, rolling interview, well worth the read.

And here’s the part about the Trump family:

Vulture: “What’s stirred everything up? Is it all about Trumpism?”

Jones: “It’s Trump and uneducated rednecks. Trump is just telling them what they want to hear. I used to hang out with him. He’s a crazy motherf–—. Limited mentally — a megalomaniac, narcissistic. I can’t stand him. I used to date Ivanka, you know.”

Vulture: “Wait, really?”

Jones: “Yes, sir. Twelve years ago. Tommy Hilfiger, who was working with my daughter Kidada said, ‘Ivanka wants to have dinner with you.’ I said, ‘No problem. She’s a fine motherf–—.’ She has the most beautiful legs I ever saw in my life. Wrong father, though.”

Jones, for the record, called Harvey Weinstein in the same interview a “motherf–—,” along with the Beatles and Marlon Brando and a couple others.

But the point with Ivanka is — where’s the feminist outrage?

Women’s marchers have taken to the streets in droves to rally against Trump, wearing pink hats with fashioned female genitalia upon their heads in protest of his supposed misogynist ways. The media has portrayed Trump as a lecherous father with a too-close-for-comfort demeanor with his daughter, Ivanka. And those on the left in general have gone above and beyond to criticize Trump for any perceived bias against women they can find and exploit — despite the fact his administration was just recognized for its welcome mat rollout to females in terms of employment.

As The Hill put it: “Trump’s first year in office was the year of the woman.”

Now comes Jones with this less-than-flattering remark about Ivanka — someone whom even he admitted only wanted to have dinner, which is hardly one and the same as dating?

In this day and age of sexual harassment scrutiny and spreading #MeToo movements, one would expect that Jones would be vilified for his comments about Ivanka. But don’t hold your breath. In the eyes of the left, the logic is this: She’s a Trump, so she’s fair game.
