Ivanka Trump Tries Proverbs

Ivanka Trump, daughter of the worst president in the world and proud user of some of his ‘best words’. Ivanka tried to use a generic ‘Chinese Proverb’ and subsequently nearly every Asian person on Twitter had some wisdom of their own to depart.

Ahead of her father arriving in Singapore for the historic meeting with Kim Jong-un, Ivanka tweeted what may have been some sound advice, according to a Chinese Proverb.

How lovely.

There was one problem though. This is almost certainly not a proverb of any sort. Chances are it was written by a Caucasian male to sell something in the 1960s. Social media, like a spider on a web, swarmed the mistake stating:

Literally, three minutes of research would have shown that maybe this isn’t true. But we’re gonna guess ‘research’ isn’t really in the Trump vocabulary. The following tweets ripped the poor president’s daughter apart.

This isn’t the first time she’s misquoted something, however. In July last year, she misquoted Albert Einstein, writing:

‘If the facts don’t fit the theory, change the facts.’

He never said that. Ever.

Oh well. Who could blame her when her father cranks out such banging quotes like:

‘Grab her by the p***y.’

‘Sh**hole countries.’

‘I have the best words.’

The list goes on.
