Ivanka Trump Tweeted a Bible Verse and It Did Not Go Over Well
Truly the queen of the ratios.
This has been a bad week, in a bad month, in a bad year. The COVID-19 pandemic rages on, and protesters are taking to streets to demand accountability for police brutality. Everyone’s out of work, and the president is nowhere to be found.
But hark! Here comes First Daughter Ivanka Trump, with a tweet that will surely soothe our wounds and offer guidance!
“This is what the Lord said: I have heard your prayer and seen your tears. I will heal you.” 2 Kings 20:5
— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) May 31, 2020
NAILED IT! As always, Ivanka pops her head up to offer a half-hearted pablum to a country in distress. It is such a pandering response that pretends to hold weight but is carefully calculated to appeal to her base. But that’s classic Ivanka: stringing words together that on the surface sound like something, but signify nothing.
Many people took to Twitter to call out Ivanka’s useless tweet, as well as the fiery division that her incompetent father stokes.
Ivanka, stop it.
“Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you tithe mint and dill and cumin, and have neglected the weightier matters of the law: justice and mercy and faithfulness. These you ought to have done, without neglecting the others!"

Meanwhile, her hideous father continues to incite violence, and attends rocket launches instead of addressing nationwide unrest and anger. Just when we think these people have hit rock bottom, they discover new depths to sink to.
