Twitter Blasts Ivanka Trump for Hilarious Science Photo

As part of promoting the president’s newly released infrastructure plan, Ivanka Trump toured a job-training science facility in Waukee, Iowa. Part of the tour included her participation in several experiments, one of which was to measure the nicotine content of “vape juice” in an electronic cigarette.

“This is so amazing. This is such a cool place to come,” Trump said. “It’s going to be hard to get rid of us.” 

Trump then went on to tweet a photo of herself in safety goggles, a lab coat and gloves, pouring something into a test tube. “I can’t promise that I’ll get this right, but at least we’ll look the part, right?” she said. 

One twitter user even decided to turn the photo into a meme, because isn’t that what twitter is for?

Some have pointed out that the photos make little sense when put in contrast with the Trump administration’s aversion to science. They pulled the United States out of the Paris Climate accord and have blatantly revealed their skepticism surrounding climate change despite the copious scientific evidence that proves it. 

Of course, this isn’t the first time Trump has come under fire for contradicting herself. Last April she was booed at the W20 Summit in Berlin, where she called the president “a tremendous champion of supporting families and enabling them to thrive.” 

She has been heavily scrutinized for her high up position in the Trump administration considering her lack of prior political experience. In Michael Wolff’s controversial book “Fire and Fury,” Steve Bannon held nothing back when discussing her.

“She became a White House staffer and that’s when people suddenly realized she’s as dumb as a brick,” Bannon said in the book. “A little marketing savvy and has a look but as far as understanding actually how the world works and what politics is and what it means—nothing. Once you expose that, you lose such credibility.” Ouch.
