Ivanka Trump Rapped for Champagne Popsicle Tweet

Land Rover BAR skippered by Ben Ainslie competes during the forth day of the Louis Vuitton Americas Cup Qualifiers

"CNN reports the backlash was "icy" after IvankaTrumpHQ tweeted a tip to "Make champagne popsicles this #MemorialDay", with a link to other summery ideas like grilling and wearing 'all-white'".

Granted the tweet was from Ivanka Trump's brand team but her personal account did not mention Memorial Day until hours after the champagne tweet went viral.

The First Daughter's lifestyle website, Ivanka Trump HQ, kicked off the Memorial Day celebrations by posting an article about "Champagne popsicles"-an innocuous a tweet as any, albeit for quite a lacklustre recipe".

Ivanka Trump - technically, Ivanka Trump the brand - has entered into Marie Antoinette territory yet again.

Trump is hardly the first person to post about alcoholic drinks for Memorial Day, but people seem to have a higher standard for the first daughter.




For 150 years, Americans have commemorated Memorial Day as a sign of respect to US soldiers.

People often take issue with the concept of "celebrating" a holiday that is supposed to honor the ultimate sacrifice.

Presidents and their aides are expected to post something not tone-deaf on the day. Some even said Ivanka's father, President Donald Trump, who has become known for his volatile and inflammatory Twitter comments, didn't have the most embarrassing tweet on Memorial Day. Some even compared her post to a tweet by Chelsea Clinton.

Some social media users criticized the tweet.

A progressive pro-veterans group, Vote Vets, was quick to bite back at what it saw as Ivank'as insensitive tweet.
