Ohhh, Ivanka Trump, how I long for the days when you didn’t have a speaking role and were simply a sideshow to your father’s racism, xenophobia and overall heartlessness.

I miss the old Ivanka, whose top job was making silly clothing in the fashion business that was gifted to her from her daddy. On Thursday, Ivanka took a swing at commemorating Black History Month through the White House’s essential form of communication: Twitter.


Well, because she’s the daughter of arguably the most divisive president in the history of America, her posting noting that “we resolve to continue to bring greater equality, dignity, and opportunity to all Americans” (as the president continues to “Make America’s white supremacy emboldened again”) didn’t go over well.

HuffPost notes that many on Twitter told Ivanka that her mission might be better served if she relayed this message to her father, but others weren’t so nice.


Nice job, Frederick Douglass.
