So much for manners. Ivanka Trump has no idea how to behave in pleasant company, but can you blame her? Look how she was raised.
Ivanka seems to have had celebrity chef and outspoken Trump critic Jose Andres thrown out of the after party for the annual Alfalfa Club dinner in D.C. last night. Andres, who has worked tirelessly on the ground in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria to provide thousands of meals to people without power or water, posted on Twitter right after the incident.
Thank you @CafeMilanoDC Franco Nuschese! I was a guest of the #alfalfaclubdinner2018 “everyone”welcome to the after party, but I’m the only individual not allow in? Is because @IvankaTrump told you so? You should be ashamed of yourself Franco.@washingtonpost pic.twitter.com/iJ5wQM18Z6

Jorge Guajardo, the Mexican ambassador to China, was there as well and tweeted in support of Andres. He reported the detail that Andres was asked to leave because he made Ivanka uncomfortable.
In a new low for Washington, yesterday @chefjoseandres was asked to leave the Alfalfa dinner after-party at @CafeMilanoDC by its owner, Franco Nuschesse, apparently because his presence made Ivanka Trump uncomfortable (Cafe Milano is the watering hole of the Trump Admin).

Celebrity Chef Anthony Bourdain chimed in as well.

Jose Andres has been a vocal anti Trump activist. In addition to his work in Puerto Rico, he has advocated on behalf of immigrants and spoken out against Trump’s xenophobic and anti-immigrant statements and policies.
Andres was also in a legal dispute with the Trump Organization over a restaurant deal in one of Trump’s hotels. Andres was in talks to set up a restaurant at one of the hotels when he pulled out in response to Trump’s racist remarks about Mexicans. Litigation dragged on for two years before the Trump Organization finally settled.
Looks like the bad blood couldn’t be put aside for one night.
