Ivanka Trump company raked over coals for suggesting ‘champagne popsicles’ to commemorate Memorial Day
Ivanka Trump yields great power within her father’s White House, but her official corporate account on Twitter is a reminder the apple didn’t fall far from the tree.
First Daughter and White House surrogate Ivanka Trump raised eyebrows on Memorial Day with a tweet from her lifestyle branding account that many likened to the famously tone-deaf defense of French Aristocracy when Maria Antoinette remarked, “let them eat cake.”

@IvankaTrumpHQ Fun question: how many trumps have ever served in the military? I'm reading family bio & can't find any. Zero. Not one.
