President Donald Trump was not known to be invited to the memorial service of Senator John McCain, which took place on Saturday at the National Cathedral in Washington. The daughter of President Ivanka Trump and son-in-law Jared Kushner were present
Many wondered why Ivanka and Jared were there. While some doubted if they were even invited, New York Times correspondent Katie Rogers clarified, saying on Saturday that McCain's friend, Sen. Lindsey Graham, had asked Ivanka to attend.
"Graham said it would be a nice touch to visit for Ivanka & Jared, but first clarified it with Cindy McCain first," Rogers tweeted referring to McCain's widow.
Despite the invitation, the Twitterverse quickly realized the irony of Ivanka's and Jared's presence, especially given the not-so-subtle dig of the president's spokesman.
CORRECTION: An earlier version of this story said First Lady Melania Trump was attending the service, not, however.
