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."
Reactions to the tone-deaf champagne tweet were harsh and immediate:
@IvankaTrumpHQ Ivanka, this is my father. He served 6 tours in Vietnam and doesn't give a fuck about your champagne… https://t.co/JMVNS4C2AS— Persistent Woman (@Persistent Woman)1496063040.0
