Designer Philipp Plein, who attracted Madonna (because he donated to Malawi) and Kylie Jenner to his recent NYFW show, is speaking out about the fact that another attendee — Tiffany Trump — was apparently snubbed.
Pictures have circulated showing Tiffany with empty seats beside her in the front row, and the rumor goes that top editors refused to sit next to the first (what do you call a random daughter from a previous marriage whom Trump hadn't exactly embraced until his presidential run?) daughter.
Plein, caught by TMZ, is decrying Trump's treatment:
Tiffany Trump is not a politician, she's a teenager — she is, I don't know, maybe, correct me if I'm wrong, 22, 23 years old. I don't think, really, she has anything to do with the drama and all the discussion going on.
She is, in fact, a 23-year-old teenager, lol.
Plein went on to ask if it was right to blame a daughter for having a father whose politics are wrong for some people, even going so far as to admit:
I'm not a politician ... I couldn't care less.
Bingo, Plein. You couldn't care less. I made my point on Twitter:
