Every Time Twitter Put Ivanka Trump On Blast
Ivanka Trump hasn’t had the easiest time settling into the White House. The former fashion mogul headed to Washington, D.C. to be a senior advisor to her father with zero experience. Since her father, President Donald Trump, has said egregious things about women, immigrants, and people of color, many folks have called out Ivanka Trump for being complicit in her father’s horrendous actions.
As she’s continued to tweet out tone deaf and absurd things, Twitter users have been quick to put the first daughter on blast. However, it looks like she’s not getting the message.
Check out every time Twitter has taken Ivanka Trump to task for her absurdities.
In mid-March 2018, the mother of three toured a job-training and science facility in Waukee, Iowa to promote her father’s new infrastructure plan. She tweeted a photo of herself wearing safety goggles, a lab coat, and gloves. She added a caption that said, “I can’t promise that I’ll get this right, but at least we’ll look the part, right?”
Twitter was outdone. Folks quickly clobbered Trump for cosplaying. One user tweeted, “Hey @IvankaTrump it’s great that you like to cosplay as a scientist on Instagram, but some of us are an #ActualLivingScientist. Tell us about what you’re doing in this picture. I’m making a battery. #ILookLikeAnEngineer”
Obviously, the photo also made a grand meme.

A baffling response to #TimesUp
Despite her father’s egregious and disturbing behavior towards women including sexual harassment, affairs, and allegations of sexual assault, Ivanka Trump has remained at her father side. Therefore, everyone was stunned when she tweeted out some praise for Oprah Winfrey’s arousing #TimesUp speech at the Golden Globes in early 2018.
She said, “Just saw @Oprah’s empowering & inspiring speech at last night’s #GoldenGlobes. Let’s all come together, women & men, & say #TIMESUP”
While most of us were simply too puzzled to respond, Washington Post blogger Jenifer Rubin tweeted, “This is the most hypocritical, clueless statement in her regrettable time in the WH. Your father has a trail of victims and supported Roy Moore, Ivanka. YOU are indeed part of the problem Ivanka. #complicit”
Next: A meaningless message
A very flat message
When her father was first elected, Ivanka Trump pledged to stand up for women. Naturally, she hasn’t even begun to uphold her promise. Therefore, when she tweeted in celebration of Women’s History Month in March 2018, many Twitter followers shut her down immediately.
The eldest Trump daughter tweeted, “As we celebrate #WomensHistoryMonth we reflect on women’s incredible contributions to our Nation. We honor women’s legacy of achievements—from pioneering innovations & strengthening our communities to leading in business & politics. Women write America’s proud & thriving history.”
One outraged Twitter user responded in all caps saying, “YOUR WORDS MEAN NOTHING VANKA.”
Another added, “And your legacy? Do you think about that? Where, WHERE, are the women you have championed and empowered? Wouldn’t ONE of them have come out to talk about how you have improved her life by now. You don’t get to “champion” this month. You are complicit in this administration.”

A not-so royal congratulations
Over a month after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced their engagement, Ivanka Trump took to Twitter to offer the royal couple a very delayed congratulations. She wrote, “Wishing Meghan and Prince Harry a lifetime of love, laughter, and happiness together. I have no doubt that this couple will do extraordinary things, both individually and collectively. Congratulations!”
Obviously, Twitter folks saw it as a desperate grab for a wedding invite. A Twitter user cleverly snapped back saying, “Dear Kremlin Barbie: still not getting an invite.” Another added, ‘They don’t want your family at their wedding… #Sad”
Next: A tone-deaf holiday
A rather wealthy Christmas
Though past presidents and first families have spent their holidays giving back to the less fortunate, the Trumps are a different breed. Instead of wishing good cheer to their fellow Americans on Christmas, President Trump’s younger daughter, Tiffany Trump, tweeted a video of herself and Ivanka wearing bikinis and blowing kisses.
Needless to say, the video was not well received. One Twitter user said sarcastically, “@trumps_feed @IvankaTrump Sorry we missed you at the homeless shelter handing out Christmas gifts.”
Another simply added, “Well that’s embarrassing.”
Next: Vicious critics
Whining never wins
In July 2017, Ivanka Trump headed to her favorite program, Fox & Friends, to cry about her father’s “vicious critics.” Apparently, its gone far beyond what she was expecting. Twitter was immediately amused.
One user tweeted a video of President Trump mocking a disabled reporter with the caption, “Yeah none of us expected that level of viciousness ivanka tbh.”
Another added, “Your brother said critics of your father aren’t even people.”
Next: Fathers and daughters
In February 2018, Ivanka Trump went on NBC News. On the program, journalist, Peter Alexander asked her if she believes the women who accused her father of sexual misconduct. Ivanka was incensed.
She responded, “I think it’s a pretty inappropriate question to ask a daughter if she believes the accusers of her father when he’s affirmatively stated there’s no truth to it. I don’t think that’s a question you would ask many other daughters. I believe my father, I know my father. I think I have that right as a daughter to believe my father.”
Twitter let the First Daughter have it. One user tweeted, “Hey @IvankaTrump, when you choose to work for a president with 19 accusers these are appropriate questions. If you can’t answer them then you should step down.”
Comedian Chelsea Handler tweeted a creepy picture of a teenage Ivanka seated on her father’s lap. She asked, “Ivanka Trump said it’s “inappropriate” to ask her about the sexual accusations against her father. Would it be more appropriate if we asked you while you sat on his lap like this?”
