Yesterday, Ivanka Trump tweeted about her trip to Iowa to discuss workforce development:
Talking #WorkforceDevelopment and Infrastructure in Iowa today! @realDonaldTrump’s #Infrastructure initiative includes a robust plan to expand skills-focused learning to prepare the next generation of American workers for 21st century job opportunities. pic.twitter.com/10md8d5tnz

It took Mother Jones editor in chief Clara Jeffery less than five minutes to tear her down:
This is Ivanka's dumbest photo op yet. lookie me, doing science. https://t.co/CM75mqZ8bk

Lookie Clara, empowering women!
I don't think @Ivankatrump can spell science.

The fact that she actually thought posting a picture of herself as STEM Barbie was a good idea shows how absurd she is.

Oh look at Princess Ivanka science-ing. Wait, where's the hashtag for her lippy? #ComplicitCrimson

Tearing down other women is totes cool if they’re the wrong kind of woman. That’s how this feminism thing works, right?

Yay, feminism. 🙄

The “Left” is so hypocritical. You guys will hate anything associated with this family…what happened to the respecting woman thing? Guess it only applies to your idea of what a woman should be and think.

Lookie me, trashing an exponentially more beautiful and successful woman because bitter hag feminism https://t.co/FJFcOWpuap

Bitterness and jealousy are very unbecoming, Clara. Women like you set a pretty crappy example for young girls.
God forbid Ivanka put some focus on girls in science. You do realize she’s a Democrat, right, @ClaraJeffery? You & your little hen party get more ridiculous every day. 🙄 #JealousMuch https://t.co/LKetCGtdSQ

…so do you, or do you not, want positive images of women in STEM to encourage younger girls to get involved?
— waveform55 (@aggiejammer08) March 20, 2018
This is actually a positive image for young girls.

If it helps make #STEM cool for young girls then this is a good thing. Maybe the message is more important than the messenger.
— Jeff Wittich (@jwittich) March 20, 2018
Maybe if you weren't so tired, you wouldn't be so mean. You should be celebrating women trying to make folks better, not slamming them simply for their birth. Really sad, and very immature.
