Ivanka Trump complained about coastal elites to defend her father — and was swiftly met with furious mockery.
The White House adviser and eldest daughter of President Donald Trump shared a video clip of former Republican strategist Rick Wilson ridiculing the president’s “credulous boomer rube” supporters, and complained the attack was derogatory and unfair.
“You consistently make fun of half the country and then complain that it is divided,” Ivanka Trump tweeted. “The arrogance, mocking accents and smug ridicule of this nation’s ‘Real Elites’ is disgusting.”

Other Twitter users accused the Ivy League-educated nepotism beneficiary of hypocrisy.
Team “Fuck Your Feelings” is out in force today with their fake rage and their “duh elites hate u fer lovin’ Trump” piffle.

I didn’t even know you could get a degree in Complete Cluelessness and Lack of Self-Awareness.

The evening gown and shoes you wear to a single party in DC costs more that what most Trump supporters earn in a year.
Maybe a little introspection would do you some good.

Are you, Ivanka, calling other people elites?
How much money did you and Jared grift this year?
How many staffers in your household?
How often do you go grocery shopping?
And btw, those who choose to blindly follow a man who has lied 15k+ times deserve to be ridiculed. pic.twitter.com/0k2a85SMsP

As opposed to the WH that demeans women, locks up children causing major psychological damage, cannot be trusted to even administer a Charity honestly and supports white supremacy. Yeah America don’t laugh at dishonest Donald Trump and his complicit daughter.

I'm never surprised to see multimillionaire Trump family members casually stoke the fires of their culture war by pretending to be common folk oppressed by an imaginary class of "elites" and threatened by gathering hordes of "Other." What amazing me is how well this con works.

Mocking accents? Are we supposed to be using accents? That's not really fair to those of us from New Jersey. (Also, Ivanka Trump condemning elites is way richer than she is.) https://t.co/j2a7oHjl48
