Another day, another Trump faux pas. This time, it’s First Daughter Ivanka Trump coming under fire, after a photo of children being detained at a McAllen, Texas border patrol immigration processing centre was released. The photo, which shows children using foil sheet blankets, is a horrifying look at the realities of Donald Trump‘s ‘zero tolerance’ immigration policy.

Coincidentally, Ivanka — a self proclaimed children’s advocate who has remained silent over the US family separation policy that’s causing thousands of children to be taken from their parents — wore a dress that looked pretty similar to the foil blankets, on a date night with husband, Jared Kushner back in 2017.

Sadly for Ivanka, the internet does not forget.

While we don’t usually condone internet roasting, since Ivanka is an official advisor to the POTUS, we hope this might drive the point home about the conditions that migrant families are dealing with at the border. During a press conference this morning, Trump did pledge to end family separations, after much public outcry.

“We’re going to be signing an executive order in a little while. We’re going to keep families together but we still have to maintain toughness or our country will be overrun by people, by crime, by all of the things that we don’t stand for and that we don’t want,” the president said.

We’ll be watching.
