Right on cue!!!
Donald Trump on Wednesday signed an executive order that turned his family separation policy into a family detention policy, caving into the public outcry over the thousands of immigrant children being separated from their parents at the border and penned in cages.
Most responded to the news with a sigh of relief, feeling only slightly less nauseous that the most recent Trump administration dumpster fire was being put out.
But Ivanka Trump, the only person who might be more out of touch than the President, was feeling something different: pride in her father for extinguishing the very fire he started in the first place.
After ignoring the issue for weeks — even literally tweeting about how she was ignoring the issue — Vank suddenly chimed in with:
Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families

Oh. Hell. No. Ivanka.
This policy was your father’s doing! He only reversed it because everyone with a platform (sans Fox News) was against it! It’s those people you should be thanking, NOT THE ARSONIST IN CHIEF!
It’s okay, Twitter responders promptly gave Princess Complicit a reality check. See the responses (below).
You are a fascist, Ivanka. You are Senior Advisor to the leader of a fascist movement. Your bear full blame- the sea of tears, the blood, the lasting suffering are all on your hands.

This is like thanking your father for cleaning the toilet seat that he pissed on.

You’ve got a lot of nerve lady to finally speak out. Where were you when those kids needed help? You are an embarrassment to women everywhere. A coward. A fake. Something is seriously wrong with you people. You really dont get how the world feels about you. #IvankaCamp
