Ivanka Trump Is Badly Mocked on Foreign Trip — Shame on the Haters

Much like America's smart and elegant first lady, the first daughter cannot seem to catch a break

Ivanka Trump, one of President Donald Trump’s children, cannot catch a break — much like first lady Melania Trump — when it comes to media treatment and online trolls.

During a visit to Bogota, Colombia, this past Tuesday, Ivanka Trump — there to promote the Trump administration’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative (W-GDP) — wore a head-turning green dress with billowing sleeves.

It was a dress by local designer Johanna Ortiz, as The Daily Mail noted.

“However, while Ivanka started out the day looking rather stylish, gust[s] of wind turned the garment’s dramatic sleeves into a comedy show, sending them flying up into the president’s daughter’s face — and the internet has wasted no time in poking fun at the wardrobe malfunction,” as The Mail put it.

People were merciless in their tweets and online mockery.

But what none of these people say is how remarkable Ivanka Trump is for all that she does as a representative of the White House, as a first daughter, as a mother, as an author, and as a successful businessperson in her own right.

Just really sad — she deserves so much better than this.

“A flurry of memes have since emerged satirizing the dress, which retails at $1,585, with some suggesting perhaps her gardener was in charge of buying her latest frock,” The Mail added.

“Others compared the mother of three to a variety of green-hued creatures and a trembling Kermit the Frog even made an appearance alongside Ivanka’s photograph on Twitter.”
