Outgoing President Donald Trump has spent the better part of the past two months berating local leaders in the state of Georgia and slamming what he falsely claims was an unfair victory for President-elect Joe Biden, the first Democrat to win Georgia since 1992.
But despite his constant stream of disinformation regarding the integrity of the Peach State's elections, the President went down to Georgia on Monday to campaign for incumbent Republican Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Perdue the night before two runoff elections deciding which party will control the Senate for at least the next two years.
Joining the President for the rally was his eldest daughter and senior advisor Ivanka Trump, who posted a selfie of the two on Air Force One.

But the accounts tagged to the picture are what's getting the tweet attention.
While it's no surprise that Ivanka Trump tagged the GOP, Senators Loeffler and Perdue, and White House Deputy Chief of Staff Dan Scavino, people were confused to see the musician Meat Loaf—of "I'd Do Anything for Love" fame—tagged alongside them.
Why is Meat Loaf tagged in this photo? https://t.co/UpgvpGaL42

Theories soon began developing.
Because Trump himself wasn't tagged—despite being the only other person in the picture—some thought Ivanka Trumphad mistakenly tagged Meat Loaf instead of her father.
Who among us hasn't accidentally tagged dad as Meat Loaf?

I would just like to point out that she didn't tag her dad in this picture. However, she did tag Meat Loaf. I feel like there is some symbolism in that. https://t.co/Mfod6E7GNf

Others had more fantastical explanations.
One assumes Ivanka Trump did not mean to tag Grammy winning musical artist Meat Loaf in the selfie she took with the President aboard AF1, en route to tonight's rally in GA, but at this point in the cycle a surprise Meat Loaf appearance wouldn't even be *today's* weirdest thing. pic.twitter.com/qQa4AtouLa
