It’s a sad state of affairs when we as a nation are reduced to hoping that a holiday tweet of the heiress to the porcelain throne that her father has made of the Presidency is merely an exercise in heartlessness, stupidity and moral bankruptcy rather than a conscious act of gaslighting and whistling to the proverbial canine.
But, in 2018, here we are.
Yesterday, a day or two after the news had broken that her father’s
Gestapo…er…ICE agents had misplaced some 1500 children that had been summarily stolen from their immigrant parents to be placed in hastily constructed detention centers or auctioned off to human traffickers, Ivanka Trump chose to vomit up this Tweet, letting her father’s devoted and deplorable volk-kind know that despite the systematic degradation and torment being unleashed upon thousands of not quite human enough brown people that all was just honky dory in her lily white world…

Needless to say the Twittersphere was sickened:
What an odd tweet in the middle of the horror going on with missing children ripped from their parents arms. How lucky you are to live in a bubble.

Must be nice to be with your Ã¢ÂÂ¤Ã¯Â¸Â because there are parents of 1500 children who arenÃ¢ÂÂt able to spend the rest of their Sunday mornings with their children in happiness instead theyÃ¢ÂÂll be spending it mourning their lost and wondering if theyÃ¢ÂÂll ever be able to see them again

Why do you get to hold your baby while this woman's is ripped out of her arms? I would like to see your grandparents' immigration papers. How did they get here? What native American gave them permission to come to this land? #RomanoffFateComing pic.twitter.com/v7l4DL3Vgv

And where is your ❤️ for other families? Children being ripped away from their parents? Children here who are homeless? Families who cannot afford healthcare? Elderly afraid of what happens when DT and his cohorts cut Medicare? So great for you to lead your privileged life.

Hundreds of children have been forcibly removed from their parents, kept in jail cells, abused by ICE guards, & lost in the system
But go ahead, tone deaf Barbie. Enjoy your snuggles while your deafening silence to your fatherÃ¢ÂÂs inhumane policies reveals you#WhereAreThChildren

You show this picture as babies are being ripped from their mother’s arms at our border? Are you kidding me? You’re either tone deaf or a monster! #WhereAreTheChidlren
