Everyone's Roasting Ivanka Trump Over Cute Pic With Daughter At Supreme Court
Ivanka Trump visited the Supreme Court of the United States with her daughter, Arabella, on Wednesday as a guest of Justice Anthony Kennedy, whom she met at her father's inauguration last month, according to The Washington Post.
Ivanka and Arabella, 5, sat in the front row and listened in as the justices announced three rulings and gave oral arguments.
After, Ivanka tweeted a picture of her and Arabella with the caption,
Arabella and me at the Supreme Court today. I'm grateful for the opportunity to teach her about the judicial system in our country firsthand.
Ivanka's father, President Trump, has been very critical of the judiciary lately in relation to his controversial travel ban.
After James Robart, a federal judge from Washington, blocked the immigration order, Trump went on a Twitter rant in which he called Robart a "so-called judge."
Then, when a federal appeals court refused to reinstate the ban, the president once again vented his frustrations on Twitter.
Given all this, and Trump's apparent lack of respect for checks and balances or the notion the president does not have absolute power, people are trolling Ivanka pretty hard about her visit to the Supreme Court.
A lot of people think Ivanka should've taken her father to the Supreme Court, instead of Arabella, in order to "teach" him about the judicial system.
Ivanka Trump does not have an official position in the White House, but she's played an instrumental role in the Trump administration thus far.
She's tried to downplay her influence but has repeatedly been seen at the White House, has reportedly impacted specific policies and has met with a number of world leaders.
Meanwhile, her husband, Jared Kushner, serves as a senior adviser to the president.
Long story short, Ivanka Trump is America's unofficial first lady and arguably has more influence than any first daughter in history.
With that said, she can likely expect people to continue to give her a hard time about her father's politics throughout his tenure.
