After photos emerged of Ivanka Trump—daughter and advisor to President Donald Trump—rubbing shoulders with world leaders at last week’s G20 summit, Americans questioned what qualifications Ms. Trump had to be discussing policy in such momentous circumstances.
Chief among those Americans was Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who soon called out Ms. Trump on Twitter.
“It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification,” Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez said.
“It hurts our diplomatic standing when the President phones it in & the world moves on. The US needs our President working the G20. Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn’t hurt either.”
It wasn’t long until the now-former White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, used her last official day at work to snap back at Ocasio-Cortez.
Considering that Huckabee Sanders hadn’t held a White House Press Briefing in over 100 days (the press briefings had been a daily affair for decades), many thought it was absurd that she’d accuse Ocasio-Cortez of “phoning it in.”
The roasting didn’t stop there.
Sarah Sanders’s tenure as press secretary may have come to an end, but it looks like her stances and willingness to lie won’t be going anywhere soon.
As long as we're making senseless demands...
Some would be happy to oblige.
