Ivanka Trump has turned her attention away from sending oatmeal to people in Ukraine to instead focus on handing out styrofoam containers of food to tornado victims in Arabi, Louisiana. But because she is Ivanka Trump, she couldn’t perform the act of charity without crowing about it on social media.

“On the road with my friends from Mercy Chefs today in New Orleans preparing and serving meals to families whose homes were destroyed by the recent tornadoes,” the former first daughter wrote on Instagram yesterday. “Blessed to join them in these efforts as we pray for the people affected by these tornadoes.”

She also shared several pictures of herself standing alongside volunteers, as well as photos of the damage done by last week’s tornado. Not included in any of the images were the actual families Ivanka claimed to be serving, which is kinda weird.

As we’ve said before, it’s nice that she wants to help. But boasting about your own altruism on Instagram is extremely tacky. Not to mention, when you’re worth an estimated $800 million, $640 million of which you made while working in the White House, spending an hour handing out food to tornado victims and posing for photos before jetting off in your private plane feels like the bare minimum.

In other Ivanka news, the White House announced yesterday that it will not assert executive privilege over her and Jared Kushner’s testimony to the House committee investigating the January 6 insurrection.

According to CNN, Jared is expected to appear before the committee later this week. As for Ivanka, the panel has asked for her cooperation, but she has not yet agreed to an interview.
Now, some tweets…

It’s a measure of just how cynical I am about the Trumps, & how much I hate them, that I can’t even find it in my heart to applaud Ivanka’s food to refugees thing.
I can’t be the only one?

Who agrees that we should have the testimony of Jared Kushner or Ivanka Trump on live TV?

Someone should ask Ivanka Trump if she still believes the 1/6 insurrectionists are patriots.

Hopefully sooner rather than later she will be posing in a orange prison oufit with her keepers!
Dear “Blessed to Join Them” Ivanka,
Well…. I *suppose* handing out food is better than tossing rolls of paper towels into the crowd like her daddy did after that hurricane. But I do have a question…. did she use a burner phone for that event as well??
Well, considering La Famiglia isn’t allowed to have it’s own charity anymore, she has to do something that makes it appear as if she cares.
Sorry, its own.. damn autocorrect..
In other words, she hasn’t done anything but is trying to blast out to social media as if she has.
vapid c u n t
I’d prefer she take a photo of herself *in* a tornado -say, an F5 (260-319 mph). Next time, please. Thank you.
I’m sick of irreligious people calling themselves “blessed.” She’s saying it as a strategy to win fans. Same as her father holding up a random Bible right after teargassing people. They’re using religion as a brand… and the Bible specifically warns us about such people.
The Bible is what trump supporters will use to justify every single crime this family has committee on the American people. List the crime…they’ll find a Bible verse to rationalize it or justify it.
A grifter grifts!
And sorry Mercy Chef. You’re known by the company you keep.
Thanks Ivanka, but unless you’re handing out plates while topless, I can buy my own fast food.
Was her slimy husband rifling through their purses and wallets while she distracted the crowd?
