Ivanka just tried to congratulate the new British PM and had to delete her tweet in embarrassment

Ivanka Trump, through sheer force of shameless nepotism, has landed herself on the world stage, becoming a sort of de facto top diplomat for the United States despite her complete lack of experience.

She regularly attends meetings between her father and foreign leaders and is clearly exploiting President Trump’s position to expand her circle of influence and accumulate power. With that in mind, it’s only fair that she be held to a higher standard than a normal First Daughter would be, even if she repeatedly fails to live up to that standard.

This morning Ivanka took to Twitter in an effort to congratulate Boris Johnson, the crude Trumpian conservative who has won his party’s election and will now become the new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Demonstrating the attention to detail that characterizes her entire family though, Ivanka congratulated Boris Johnson on becoming the “next Prime Minister of the United Kingston.”

Boris Johnson is not, of course, going to be the leader of some place called “United Kingston.”  Ivanka quickly deleted the tweet — presumably with a face burning with embarrassment — but unfortunately for her publications like The Hill had already secured a screenshot of her original mistake to say nothing of how quickly it went viral on Twitter.

While the botched tweet is perhaps a small mistake in the scheme of things, it’s just another reminder that this entire administration is riddled with incompetence.

Someone should have caught this, either Ivanka herself or her team, and the fact that no one did shows how casually the First Daughter and the rest of the president’s cronies approach their responsibilities representing this country. It’s just the latest little humiliation in a string of many and this kind of lax behavior shows no sign of slowing.

Donald Trump needs to be voted out of office not just so we can finally be rid of him personally but so that we no longer have to worry about any member of his vile brood. Trumpism must be sharply rebuked at the ballot box so that none of his children can pursue the dreams of political office that they are so clearly entertaining. A Trump dynasty spells the end of America.

Ivanka Trump's unfortunate Twitter gaffe

She later sent out a correctly written tweet.

But responses were still swift and mockingly brutal.

Join millions calling for AG Barr to resign after he defied his constitutional obligations to protect Trump!
