This afternoon, President Donald Trump signed an executive order putting a halt to the family separation policy that his own administration had implemented, denied they had ever implemented, boasted about implementing, blamed Democrats for implementing, and then argued that only Congress could repeal.
Whether or not the “executive order” actually resolves the crisis or simply changes “child concentration camps” to “family concentration camps” has yet to be seen.
But that didn’t stop his daughter Ivanka from taking to Twitter to congratulate her father for ending his own horrifying policy after saying nothing about it over the past weeks.

Thank you @POTUS for taking critical action ending family separation at our border. Congress must now act + find a lasting solution that is consistent with our shared values;the same values that so many come here seeking as they endeavor to create a better life for their families

When Ivanka Trump was on the campaign trail, she promised to be an advocate for mothers and their children, being a mother herself. But since her father assumed the presidency, all of her half-hearted and insincere efforts have come to nothing.
For her to thank the President for ending his own horrendously sadistic policy after staying silent for his entire administration elevates her from complicit to actively participating in her father’s efforts to gaslight and disingenuously mislead the nation about what’s really happening to those kids down at the border – and who’s really responsible for it.
Social media immediately erupted in fury at her remark.
I would be delighted to read you were fatally struck by a runaway hot dog cart.

"Shared values?" What values do we share, Ivanka?
When I see injustice, I speak up on behalf of those suffering.
When you see injustice, you speak up on behalf of the person responsible for inflicting it.
