Ivanka Trump Slammed Over Tone-Deaf Coronavirus Tweet As American Moms Scramble For Childcare
President Donald Trump’s daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump is being dragged online after sharing a picture of herself spending family time with her kids in what appeared to be yet another photo-op by the exceedingly image-conscious first daughter.
While many families are trapped at home and struggling to make ends meet after businesses were shut down and workers were furloughed, Ivanka shared a pic showing her under billowing linen (described as a tent) explaining to Americans how to have fun during the health crisis.
Tweeting from home on Tuesday, where she is reportedly “working” as the coronavirus pandemic paralyzes the country, Ivanka wrote: “Staying home today w/ kids? Plan living room camp out! Throw a bedsheet over some taped together brooms. Plan a menu & ‘pack’ sandwiches, salads (S’mores optional) A fun activity that also brings family together for a meal! Share your ideas & use the hashtag #TogetherApart,” she wrote.
As expected, the internet was quick to respond:
Staying home today w/ kids?
Plan living room camp out!
Throw a bedsheet over some taped together brooms. Plan a menu & ‘pack’ sandwiches, salads (S’mores optional😜)
A fun activity that also brings family together for a meal!

Awh, so cute while your father totally screws the country with his hubris and incompetence!

So while everyone scrambles to figure out daycare, bills and toilet paper, you get to play mommy.
Can you possibly be any more obtuse?

“Wait, I have a baby?!? Yes, ypass me the baby! That will be perfect for the camp out photoshoot.
Can SOMEONE please drape the silk tablecloth over the rolling closet pole? Remove my dresses from it first! C’mon people, we have an iconic campout photo to enact.”

If you don’t have a bedsheet? Try foil! 🥴 pic.twitter.com/i81Y4zJwN6

Congratulations on being rich & being married to a guy actually profiting off this catastrophe
There are actually people suffering. Without enough food. Without nannies or cooks or cleaning people to help with the kids. Who are forced to work or risk losing their job/business.

3 seconds after that photo, the nanny took over and she went out to breakfast, I bet.

Setup a fake charity. All the cool kids are doing it.

Use those flashlights and try to find some compassion for the children locked up in cages right now 👌
