Ivanka Trump briefly filled in for her father at a G20 session and the liberals are throwing a tantrum.
This practice is common among leaders at the G20 but it didn’t matter to liberal pundits.
An image of the first daughter seated among world leaders at the summit in Hamburg, Germany, first surfaced on Twitter. It was posted by a person with the handle @LanaLukash who later deleted the tweet.
Before the tweet was deleted, however, it drew a lot of attention on social media.
Asked about the photo, a White House official said that Ivanka Trump’s time sitting in for her father was brief and that the topic under discussion at the time was relevant to her advocacy role on a women’s economic development initiative with the World Bank.
“Ivanka was sitting in the back and then briefly joined the main table when the president had to step out and the president of the World Bank started talking as the topic involved areas such as African development, areas that will benefit from the facility just announced by the World Bank,” the official said.
The official also noted that it’s customary for a representative of the president’s delegation to occupy his seat if he steps out of the room and that other nations follow the same practice. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin also occupied the president’s seat for a time during another meeting yesterday, according to the official.
Very fake news CNN also attacked Ivanka:
Brian Fallon, a CNN political commentator and former spokesman for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, responded to the news with a tweet: “I’m sure Republicans would have taken it in stride if Chelsea Clinton was deputized to perform head of state duties,” he wrote.But Michael McFaul, the United States ambassador to Russia under President Barack Obama, said Ivanka Trump subbing in was unusual.“This is strange,” he tweeted. “Very strange.”Brian Klaas, a Trump critic and fellow at the London School of Economics, tweeted the photo of Ivanka Trump, adding, “Ivanka Trump, unelected, unqualified, daughter-in-chief, is representing the US at the G20 summit next to May, Xi, Merkel.”
So here we have another non-story becoming a huge issue because everything the Trump’s do is the end of the world. It’s customary for a representative of the president’s delegation to occupy his seat if he steps out of the room but to the mentally ill liberals, it’s proof that we are a banana republic.
The liberals also insulted Ivanka Trump by saying she’s only a shoe designer or a handbag designer so she has no business being there.
