First daughter Ivanka Trump was ripped on social media Saturday night for posting a photo of herself dressed up for a night on the town as protesters filled airports demanding officials release detained immigrants.
After what can best be described as a tone-deaf posting, the daughter of the president was accused of acting like Marie Antoinette, ignoring the public that turned out in massive numbers to protest the abrupt detention of legal green card holders at airports across the country.
Partricularly galling has been Ivanka Trump's public face of standing up for motherhood as Syrian refugee women and their children have been banned by her father from entering the U.S. from the war-torn country.
While Ivanka has been touted as the social conscience within the Trump family circle of close advisors, the daughter who is serving as the defacto “First Lady” has often used her high profile to hype her brand, presenting herself and her husband Jared Kushner as the new DC “power couple.”
Commenters on Twitter were quick to point out her obliviousness to what was going on in the streets and in the airports with one noting she exemplified “life in the bubble.”
