During a campaign event in Las Vegas on Monday, Ivanka Trump claimed that no one has the right to criticize her father because no one knew the coronavirus pandemic would wind up being so deadly and devastating, leaving over 215,000 Americans dead with thousands more dying each and every day.
HuffPost notes that Ivanka tried her best to put a positive spin on her dad’s ineptitude:
“(Ivanka said) that the president had taken ‘unprecedented’ and early action at the start of the public health crisis ‘when most people, except through the lens of revisionist history’ were ‘not taking it seriously, on the Hill or elsewhere.'”

Um, who exactly is busy trying to rewrite history, Ivanka? That’s exactly the question many Twitter users asked the First Daughter:
Hi @ivanka, have you listened to Bob Woodward’s tapes or were you too busy posing for vapid photoshoots?

That’s a load of crap Ivanka. I’ve been taking it seriously since Feb when I came down with it

Classic gaslighting from the designated heiress.

Trump’s admin–including Ivanka’s husband–made the decision to politicize the pandemic & shelve a national testing plan in order to blame the deaths of blue state Americans on Dem governors. Her primary job in this admin is to whitewash her father’s bad acts but give me a break.

Easily proven lies. Her idiot father called it a hoax. Stopping travel was too late and all he did. They killed a national testing plan because Dem led states were the ones suffering. She is a pathetic liar like her father. https://t.co/DUYVOtQ9Pc

My family was taking it seriously by Valentines Day. The last time we ate in a restaurant or went shopping for anything but necessities was February 9th. That was our anniversary weekend. 😒

The Trump family excels at one thing beyond all others: Lying to protect their asses.
