“It’s Not Fair”
A San Francisco apparel company, Modern Appealing Clothing, has filed a class-action lawsuit against Ivanka Trump’s fashion empire citing “unfair competition.” The lawsuit is just another in a long line of frivolous attempts to punish Ivanka because her father is the president. Despite having distanced herself from her organization, she remains a favorite target of leftist bullies.
The suit, filed in California Superior Court on March 16th, claims that comments made by President Trump and senior adviser, Kellyanne Conway, have provided and unfair advantage to Ivanka’s brand. The president tweeted his support to Ivanka back in January, after Nordstrom dropped her fashion line.
Conway gave a harmless plug to Ivanka when she urged people to “go buy her stuff” during her appearance on Fox & Friends. Brother and sister, Ben and Chris Ospital, and mom Jeri, who founded MAC in 1980, believes these instances have created a better market for Ivanka’s clothing line. The documents assert that:
“As a result of their unlawful acts, defendants have reaped and continue to reap unfair benefits and illegal profits at the expense of plaintiff MAC and the Class it seeks to represent.”
Part of the lawsuit also seeks to prohibit sales of Ivanka’s brand…
Anywhere in California
Lawyers representing MAC have also posited that the first daughter has reaped the benefits of increased sales and profits because of her father’s new position. The complaint notes that her sales have “surged several hundred percent since last year.”
While it is true that Ivanka’s fashion and perfume lines have seen significant growth recently, it is not likely the result of comments made by President Trump or Conway. Rather, it is the malicious boycotts and meritless lawsuits that have inspired her supporters.
MAC also seems reluctant to accept their own share of the blame for their fledgling sales. Opting instead, as liberals often do, to blame someone else for their failures.
However, neither their tantrum nor their lawsuit will derail the global success of Ivanka Trump’s brand. A lesson some of her opponents learned the hard way.
