In August while speaking to donors for President Donald Trump's reelection in Wyoming, White House adviser Ivanka Trump told the crowd her mother Ivana taught her to be a powerful, successful woman. And while people had their own theories on what skills or traits her father passed on, the First Daughter said the one thing her father gave her was her:

"Moral compass."

While the high-end Trump donors may not have had major reactions to that pronouncement,  once word spread outside of the private event the internet certainly did.


Actor and frequent Trump critic Mark Hamill included a visual response of his reaction when he heard the news.

He was not the only one to provide a visual aid.

It seemed people did not see getting a moral compass from Donald Trump as a positive.

While some said her Trump branded morality was obvious.

When President Donald Trump took office in January of 2017, Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner moved to the DC area and joined the Trump administration as White House advisers. While being featured in multiple photo ops and inserted into international diplomacy, people have been critical of Ivanka's lack of accomplishments on her stated projects.

However Ivanka and her handlers routinely assure the public she is "quietly working behind the scenes." Meanwhile the author of Trump's book Art of the Deal, Tony Schwartz, stated Ivanka was the worst of the Trump children.

President Donald Trump's hatred of the late Republican Senator from Arizona, John McCain, was widely known even before McCain cast the decisive vote that saved the Affordable Care Act in 2017.

That hatred has only worsened since that vote, with Trump initially refusing to lower flags at half staff to honor him and even implying that McCain is in Hell.
