Queerty: Absolutely no one is here for Ivanka’s 9/11 tweet


Today marks the nineteenth anniversary of the September 11 attacks and, of course, Ivanka Trump couldn’t let such a somber day pass without drawing attention to herself.

This morning, the first daughter tweeted “Never Forget” along with an American flag and a picture of the Statue of Liberty and the Twin Towers at sunrise.

Now, for a normal person, this would be a perfectly acceptable tweet.

But Ivanka Trump is not a normal person.

She’s the daughter/senior advisor to the man who celebrated the fact that his building became the tallest skyscraper in New York City after the Twin Towers fell then repeatedly lied about witnessing hundreds of Muslims cheering about the terrorist attacks from Jersey City.

He also used the tragedy to personally enrich himself and his family and made light of the whole thing in a since-deleted 2013 tweet about “losers” and “haters.”

Oh, and his administration, of which Ivanka is one of the highest-ranking members, siphoned almost $4 million from the 9/11 first responders fund, according to documents  obtained by the New York Daily News this week.

Twitter did not waste any time reminding Ivanka of these uncomfortable facts…

On an unrelated note, if you haven’t registered to vote yet, please do! There’s still time. More info on how to do so HERE and HERE.
