Ivanka Trump is on the cover of Us Weekly, and people have a lot of thoughts.
@sahilkapur, on this week’s Us Weekly cover story on Ivanka Trump headlined, “Why I Disagree With My Dad.” Despite the first-person wording, she is not quoted in the story; reporters spoke with anonymous sources close to the president and quoted from old interviews.
Many pointed out that the article seemed to be a puff piece for the first daughter after the magazine was bought by the Trump-friendly National Enquirer in March.
The quote also became a meme about fictional characters who disagree with their dads, like this “Star Wars” reference.
And this “Game of Thrones” reference where Tyrion Lannister is seen actually killing his father.

They even brought other world leaders into the fantasy.
And were sad for Joe Biden.
