On Tuesday morning, the president's daughter and adviser Ivanka Trump shared photos of her and Jared Kushner's family fishing expedition -- and in the background of the top right photo, a Confederate flag flew.
To any kid, this fish is a trophy! 🐟 🎣 🏆 https://t.co/wSpMZ0aFkQ— Ivanka Trump (@Ivanka Trump)1514303280.0
As The Daily Dot noted, "the Confederate flag flying in the background of a family photo might not be the best optics" given President Donald Trump's strange defense of the Confederacy and those who protested to "protect" their monuments.
As former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub noted after the first daughter's apparent flub, the photo was either a "dogwhistle" or a telling accident.
