Twitter Mocks Ivanka Trump For Being Shunned by World Leaders at G-20: 'Bring Your Stupid Daughter to Work Day'

Social media users took to Twitter on Sunday to mock first daughter Ivanka Trump after a viral video showed the senior White House adviser attempting and failing to insert herself into a conversation among world leaders at the Group of 20 (G-20 Summit) in Osaka, Japan over the weekend.

The brief video clip, released by the French government, shows Ivanka being shunned while attempting to join a conversation between British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, French President Emmanuel Macron and International Monetary Fund leader Christine Lagarde.

During the group's discussion on "social justice," May can be heard saying "as soon as you begin talking about the economic aspect of it, though, a lot of people start listening who otherwise wouldn't listen." This comment prompts Ivanka to say "yeah." She then begins interjecting about "defense" as Lagarde, who was standing beside Trump, can be seen rolling her eyes before turning back to the world leaders to continue their discussion.

As President Donald Trump met with his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping to discuss reviving trade talks, both Ivanka Trump and her husband White House senior adviser Jared Kushner were at the negotiating table.

After the video of Ivanka was released, it quickly went viral, prompting widespread ridicule on Twitter.

Many users questioned why Ivanka was at the G-20 Summit in the first place.

"It may be shocking to some, but being someone's daughter actually isn't a career qualification," Democratic congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (N.Y.) tweeted. "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."

"Why is Ivanka Trump in a discussion with Macron, May, Lagarde, and Trudeau?," Christopher Bouzy tweeted. "Two years ago she was a 'fashion designer' stealing designs from other designers, and selling condos using deceptive tactics. She shouldn't be representing the United States in any capacity."

"What the f*** are you doing at the G20 summit? You have absolutely no qualifications or business being there. Was it 'take your mistress-daughter to work day?'" Kaj-Erik Eriksen tweeted.
