Ivanka Trump had some unpleasant moments on the world stage. After all, who can forget the time when the audience moaned and laughed in Berlin, when she described her father as "an enormous supporter of family support" during a panel together with Angela Merkel and IMF head Christine Lagarde. But that was nothing compared to a video released by the French government that is so cumbersome that you might feel a bit bad for your first daughter.
The video shows a moment when Ivanka Trump seemed to be trying to get involved in a conversation between Justin Trudeau from Canada, Emmanuel Macron from France, Theresa May from the UK, and Lagarde. And while no one is saying anything, some faces seem to make it clear that entering the first daughter is not exactly desirable. In addition, her body language speaks volumes, as none of the leading personalities in the world seem to be trying to involve her in her circle.
Perhaps the most expressive of them is Lagarde which seems to roll them eyes at one point, as Ivanka Trump tries to insert her two cents into the conversation. When Ivanka Trump speaks, Lagarde hardly looks at her .
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez commented on the video late Saturday and tweeted it shows that I Vanka Trump is not qualified as a United States Representative in the World Deer e. "For some it may be shocking, but to be someone's daughter is not really a professional qualification," wrote Ocasio-Cortez.
