'Ms Romney' Trends After People Remind GOP Chairwoman Decrying 'Nepotism' She's Mitt Romney's Niece

In an October 15 tweet, Ronna McDaniel, Republican National Committee (RNC) chairwoman, granddaughter of former Michigan Governor George Romney and niece of Senator Mitt Romney, has accused Hunter Biden of benefiting from nepotism in his Ukrainian business dealings.

The tweet has caused the phrase "Ms. Romney" to trend on Twitter, with many pointing out the irony of McDaniel's charge about a former vice president's son. Many were quick to remind McDaniel that members of her own family had held prominent political positions before she became the RNC chair.

Some mocked McDaniel's tweet for lacking self-awareness.

Others cited relatives of other Republicans who have benefited from having family members in powerful positions.

Others were simply dismissive.

The GOP chairwoman has been very critical of Hunter and Joe Biden ahead of Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate.
