Ivanka Trump, daughter of Donald Trump, drew major backlash after videos from Sen. John McCain’s memorial appeared to show her texting in the middle of one of the tributes to the Republican senator.
Video clips from the national coverage of McCain’s funeral showed a specific moment where Ivanka appeared to be looking down while her hands were busy as former Senator Joe Lieberman (D-CT) spoke about his friend.
The video can be seen below:

It didn’t take long for Twitter users to take notice and bash Ivanka for being so disrespectful.

Ivanka Trump texting while at the funeral. If it's not about them, they have no interest. Narcissism at its worst. #McCainMemorial #McCainFuneral #SaturdayMorning https://t.co/guX9X3XbGB

Ivanka can’t resist using her phone even during the service. She was probably texting daddy…”Daddy, they are disrespecting you! Hurry, distract them, announce a war!!!”

Two tiny vignettes during the #McCainMemorial:
1) George Bush giving Michelle Obama a piece of candy – Sweet
2) Ivanka Trump texting – Not so sweet

Looks like Ivanka is typing on her phone 🙄 Real respectful. She’s probably texting her toddler father with updates. #stayclassyivanka
