Ocasio-Cortez just shredded Ivanka Trump for playing diplomat in viral video from G-20 Summit

Social media users around the world all garnered a good chuckle from the widely shared footage of First Daughter Ivanka Trump attempting to insert herself into a conversation of world leaders at the G-20 Summit in Osaka this week while British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, International Monetary Fund leader Christine Lagarde, and French President Emmanuel Macron gave her quizzical looks that intimated that they were all thinking “What the hell is she doing here?”

The video clip — issued with perhaps not the most innocent of intentions by the French government — was quickly noticed by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who used it as an example of how President Trump’s nepotistic administration harms America’s diplomatic standing in the community of nations.

Ivanka found a defender in British media personality Piers Morgan who tweeted out a snarky response to the progressive representative — one that referenced the congresswoman’s own career qualifications before she had won a seat in the House.

Other Trumpeteers quickly piled on to attack the popular avowed Democratic Socialist for her tweet, including Paris Dennard, a former writer for the G. W. Bush administration, ironically a family with a long history of nepotism.

Even noted Republican pollster and political consultant Frank Luntz pointed out the hypocrisy in the attacks on Ocasio-Cortez.

While the support from multiple quarters was surely welcomed by the Bronx-born representative with working-class roots, the congresswoman knew how to defend herself from this sort of attack without assistance from anyone else.

She responded directly to her critics in a series of tweets that demonstrated her qualifications in spades.

Touché, congresswoman, touché.
