President Donald Trump's senior advisor and eldest daughter, Ivanka Trump, joined the chorus of Republican voices decrying the House floor vote to formalize the impeachment inquiry against him.

Though she didn't call out the impeachment inquiry directly, Ivanka invoked founding father Thomas Jefferson in an attempt to make a point.


Unfortunately for Ivanka, the point fell flat for a number of reasons.

For one, the accusation that Trump's opposition "invents where facts fail them," is absurd. The President routinely invents, and he's told over 13,435 lies since becoming President.

But legal analyst Susan Hennessey pointed out another Jefferson quote to expertly point out what Jefferson would think of Ivanka's role in the White House.

Since ascending from fashion designer to a senior advisor position for her father, Ivanka has been at Trump's side for numerous talks with world leaders. Suspiciously, China granted five trademarks to Ivanka Trump's business amid trade negotiations between China and the United States. Ivanka's husband, Jared Kushner, works in the White House as an advisor as well.

People agreed that Hennessey's Jefferson quote was spot on.

Hennessey and others kept chiming in with more Jefferson quotes of their own.

"Thomas Jefferson" soon began trending on Twitter with people roundly condemning the parallels Ivanka drew between Jefferson and her dad.

Not a good look, Ivanka.
