White House Responds to AOC and Other Critics of Ivanka

The White House has issued a statement Monday in response to Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s and other “haters” that have been criticizing senior adviser Ivanka Trump’s performance at the G-20 Summit in Japan. That statement said that those critics are “pathetic.”

The President’s daughter, Ivanka, a senior adviser to President Donald Trump, attended the G-20 Summit last week and spoke at a womens’ empowerment event with British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

However, a video that has been making the rounds that seemingly shows Ivanka awkwardly trying to interject herself into a conversation with world leaders, drew attention away from any actual diplomacy Ivanka may have achieved at the summit. The video, posted on the French Presidential palace’s Instagram page, quickly went viral.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) tweeted about the video, asserting, “It may be shocking to some, but being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.”

The Official White House Response to Criticism of Ivanka

White House deputy communications secretary Jessica Ditto responded to the criticism in a statement to The New York Times, calling the video a “misrepresentation.”

The Official Statement went on to say, “It is sad but not shocking that the haters choose to attack Ivanka Trump, a senior adviser to the president, when she is promoting U.S. efforts to empower women through strategic partnerships with world leaders,” Ditto said, adding that the attacks are “absolutely pathetic.”

Unofficially, Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tore into AOC after the freshman lawmaker criticized Ivanka.

“Phoning it in @AOC is wasting your time on Twitter while destroying jobs in NY,” Sanders tweeted. “@realDonaldTrump & @IvankaTrump actually created millions of new jobs and continue to make the US stronger on the global stage but thank you for reminding Americans every day why they elected Trump.”

    AOC needs to pack it up and go home; she plays like a school girl on the playground and is a total embarrassment to her position…….

  2. AOC is an elected official whose salary is paid by taxpayers of this country. She needs to do the job she was elected to do instead of ranting on Twitter about things she has no clue about.

    The Left-Democrats have been at war with the American people for decades. It”s time we realize this, get VERY seriously dedicated to firing back & taking the OFFENSE immediately. Or the war is lost by apathy-default. TAKE NO PRISONERS. DAVID HORIWITZ.

    AOC is nothing but the leftists little baffoon. This is what when you hold a casting call for someone to run for office. New Yorkers must be over joyed with their little nitwit and all the jobs she lost the city and state along with making them look like idiots for voting her into office.

    Keep the real news coming. Thank you. The world is tired of the Left’s new it sounds like sheep the continually cries because it is lost.

    We LOVE Ivanka! She has been doing a fantastic job! We only listen to AOC now for a laugh. Her ideas are crazy

  8. H

    By now we know AOC is ignorant But there are people in congress that knows she is but use her to get there liberal far left agenda in!

  9. Donald Thieke Sr

    Mr Trump why are not some of these idiot’s prosecuted for these lies and problems they are causing our President and his family it would be about time to crack down on these kind of people we have here in our GREAT COUNTRY starting with this AOC who has already broke enough laws to put her in prison or deportation charges,when are you going to say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.???

    Why waisted time on some that has no knowledge of other countries.
    She was only a waitress in a small restaurant. So what you expect from that type of person. does not know what she is talking about about? So she lie and made up stories. So don’t even take a time on this type of person. Ivanka did a great job.

  11. Barbara Finazzo

    And being a barmaid qualifies you for what besides pouring a shot? Oh yea I forgot. It qualifies you to make laws for an entire country. Does anyone else see something even a little strange?

  12. The family of the President is expected to behave with dignity and class at all times because we the people feel that they are representing us and the office of the President. They are thus by their relationships to the President and as the “First Family” essentially ambassadors of this country and any efforts on their part to promote a good impression of the United States government and it’s people should be appreciated. Such behavior and efforts bring pride to the United States and everyone of us that supports the Constitution and salutes the flag.

    I commend Ivanka for getting involved and taking things seriously. Trying to call her out as a spoiled rich kid or entitled brat is beyond ridiculous. She may be rich, she may be pretty, but most of all she is intelligent and willing to assume responsibility and work.

    Loudmouth liberals need to be careful in regards to making such comments. Now that Sarah Huckabee Sanders is able to speak more freely, I feel that she will not hesitate to assert her own feelings and opinions and tear people open with the same if not greater force than they have exercised to attack her. Good for you Miss Huckabee. Let them feel some heat. The time for retribution and being called out for their transgressions is now at hand. Now you’re free to give them what they deserve.

    Alexandria Osasio-Cortez, neither is being a previous bartender a prelude to being a Congresswoman. You are by far the least researched “supposedly ” professional person I have ever experienced. Before you shoot off your hip about things you have little understanding about, you need to realize “Most of us EDUCATED WOMAN, think YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

  14. AOC has no room to open her mouth to backlash at Ivanka Trump. Ivanka Trump is a senior Adviser to her dad who the President of the United States who is also ur President. Ur position as a freshman congress bitch is no where compared to Ivanka’s smartness, therefore just keep ur big mouth shut n ur horse face out of Ivanka’s high class persona u r not even in her league .

  15. Deborah Cox

    And AOC has “career qualifications”. AOC is a joke. She needs to crawl back under the rock she came from.

  16. May Herlands

    the nerve of you lying, evil people! She is a photo op and nothing more. Are u trying to make a case that she’s an intelligent, viable spokesperson.? Only the fools who voted for “it” will be persuaded – not anyone with 1/2 a brain. This is unbelievable – for this reason u should’ve voted for Hillary – an intelligent, respected, capable human being. The chutzpah of the people in the WH foisting them on us is beyond belief! The fact that she has no humility – most people are aware of their limitations – not this bumbling lot!!!

  17. Sue

    AOC is apparently jealous of Ivanka Trump’s successes, both as one of her father’s WH advisors, and as a self-made businesswoman. AOC is nothing more than a sore loser…she obviously can see herself already drowning at the shallow end of the political pool!

  18. Once again OAC opens up her big mouth and garbage comes out of it. Again she sticks her nose where it doesn’t belong. It’s about time that she either resigns or she is thrown out of Congress. She actually believes that she is doing a good job but she doesn’t seem to realize or doesn’t want to see that people are actually laughing at her and her stupidity’s. What is Pelosi waiting for to get rid of her???

  19. Wumingren

    Hey, AOC, we’ll repeat your Tweet if/when Chelsea Clinton decides to run for office or hold a position on a Democrat’s staff.

  20. Lee Valimont

    AOC has no room to criticize anyone about their qualifications. She has proven time after time that she is the least qualified Mis-Representative in Congress. Someone who can’t do basic math let alone economics. I hope you’re investing your $175K salary wisely since you won’t be earning it much longer. Reality is that in a socialist state you will not be in the top 1% or in the preferred class either. With your hate, lies and a heart as black as coal it’s obvious how your mother raised her daughters. Since you can’t say anything positive or show any appreciation for what others are doing to move this country forward, then keep your despicable mouth shut.

  21. Big Baby

    Cortez will burn out. No one that stupid can sustain a long run. She was elected (unfortunately) because of her last name!

  22. Eric Cooper

    Actually the twit should not be representative of anyone in this country, nor should hillary, someone outside the damn trump family should be in those positions anyway, conflict of interest anyone. the stupid little girl is not a politician and should not have been at the G20 Summit to begin with.
