Twitter has sounded the alarms after Ivanka Trump announced plans to visit Alabama on Tuesday.
And the comments were nothing short of predictable.
Instead of noting all of the good she plans to do (she’s going to Alabama Robotics Technology Park in Decatur for a workplace development announcement) they instead mocked her for her father’s factually-correct assertion that Alabama was previously in the path of Hurricane Dorian.
“I look forward to visiting Alabama on Tuesday!” Ivanka tweeted, kicking off a predictable firestorm.
I look forward to visiting Alabama on Tuesday! ?? https://t.co/RlHTCOv4JK

Cue a litany of hurricane jokes from people who don’t actually care about the real victims of Dorian:
Will you be surveying the hurricane damage there?

Two natural disasters in one week?
Give these poor people a break.

Even with the hurricane?!?!
— Shugar (@GregShugar) September 9, 2019
Please give our best to the hurricane victims

Be careful. Terrible Hurricane. Destroyed the whole state.

Haven’t they suffered enough? They have barely recovered from hurricane sharpie!

Such outrage is ironic, given that it is coming from a group of people who were legitimately irked by a “Dorian-themed” dessert.

But Ivanka remains resolute in the face of ugly attacks. In June, “squad” leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez implied that Ivanka was unqualified for her White House position simply because she’s Trump’s daughter.
It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.
It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on.
The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either. https://t.co/KCZMXJ8FD9

In February, liberals celebrated sexist art pieces which depicted Ivanka in the very “traditional feminine roles” that they seek to destroy through third-wave feminism.
No, seriously, this is a thing and, yet, another example of #ProgressivePrivilege. Art exhibit invites people to throw trash at vacuuming @IvankaTrump lookalike. https://t.co/bOx8HfDMnQ @kelseyjharkness @FDRLST #IWcul pic.twitter.com/AQNZgazlAn

In November of 2018, following the Tree of Life synagogue massacre, the New York Times published a piece asking if Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump are “good for the Jews.”
Following the Tree of Life massacre, there is deep division in the Jewish community about Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump. https://t.co/GxEhkY094H
