In a recent segment on Fox & Friends, First Daughter Ivanka Trump complained that people are being mean to her daddy. Twitter had the perfect reaction.
While appearing on Fox News’ primetime morning news show, Ivanka — who is also serving in the Trump White House as an official presidential advisor — said she was not expecting the “level of viciousness” in Washington, DC toward her father’s administration.

“It is hard. And there is a level of viciousness that I was not expecting. I was not expecting the intensity of this experience. But this isn’t supposed to be easy. My father and this administration intends to be transformative, and we want to do big, bold things,” Trump said. “I think some of the distractions and some of the ferocity, was, I was a little blindsided by on a personal level. But for me, I’m trying to keep my head down, not listen to the noise, and just work really hard to make a positive impact in the lives of many people.”
Twitter responded by reminding Ivanka of the campaign she worked on, in which her father denigrated almost all Mexican immigrants as rapists and drug dealers, called for a ban on all Muslims attempting to emigrate to the United States, made fun of a New York Times reporter’s disability, and entertained crowds of people who regularly called for violence against Trump’s political opponents.
Others brought up the fact that her father was the one who made the “birther” conspiracy theory popular, suggesting that former President Barack Obama was not born in the United States. Another even reminded Ivanka that her father was the same person who blamed Ted Cruz’s father for the JFK assassination. Several other tweets brought up the fact that a key plank of Trump’s platform was prosecuting his political opponent.
Here are some of the best responses to Ivanka’s comments:

Tell me about it! This one time, someone baselessly accused the president of not being born in America. https://t.co/FS25ac6sQy

At the Republican National Convention people dressed in orange jump suits shouted "lock her up." That should have
given Ivanka a heads up. https://t.co/tYoOxeg4ua

If Ivanka Trump wants to see an unimaginable level of viciousness, She should read the American Health Care Act.
