Ivanka Trump Ripped for Flaunting Glamorous Lifestyle Amid Immigration Chaos

Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner dressed up for a fancy evening out on Saturday, and shared the news on Twitter, as demonstrators rushed airports to protest President Donald Trump’s “Muslim ban.” The contrast between Ivanka Trump’s glamour shot and the plight of refugees around the world did not sit well with many users of the social media platform.

Many on Twitter thought it was an inappropriate time for the first daughter to run the photo, and said as much.

Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are key advisers to the president, with Kushner serving in an official White House capacity and Ivanka Trump seen as a force behind the scenes. Both have been criticized for white-washing the new president’s behavior through their own clean-cut and wholesome image.

Indeed, over 35,000 Twitter users liked the image of Ivanka Trump in that glittery, $5,000 dress, and more than 3,000 retweeted it.
