Awkward! Ivanka Trump took to Instagram on Sunday, May 13 to wish her mom, Ivana Trump, 69, a wonderful day, but many of Ivanka's followers were far from impressed by the 36-year-old's strange tribute. "Happy Mother’s Day to my amazing mother and the best skier I know! Love you 💕#MothersDay," Ivanka captioned a possibly photoshopped image of Ivana on the ski slopes.
Soon after Ivanka posted the pic of her mom, several of her 4.3 million Instagram followers commented their distaste of the Mother's Day message. "Is that all? You have so many more nice things to say on so many other topics. 'The best skier I know'? C'mon, can't you do better than that for your mother on Mother's Day?" one person complained.
"How nice... but I'm sure she has some pretty amazing attributes as a mother [other] than just being the best skier. You are who you are because of her. She deserves more honor," a second person commented with another similarly adding, "This really is quite disappointing compared to all the wonderful things she says about others. Must be a strained relationship for sure."
However, several people also came to Ivanka's defense. One person wrote, "She surely told her mother [more] in private and skiing could be their common activity, so it could mean a lot to both of them." Another fan commented, "I understand Ivanka is not very well-liked, but my goodness! Can we for once use reason? Not only do we not get to choose our parents but who the hell is anyone to tell @IvankaTrump her Mother's Day caption was 'not good enough'? What are you, the Mother's Day police?"
In other Trump Mother's Day news, Donald Trump was slammed on the holiday for failing to wish his wife, Melania Trump — who is the mother of their 12-year-old son, Barron Trump — a wonderful day online. "My mother was a great person. Her name was Mary MacLeod. She came from Scotland and she met my father when she was very young. They were married for many, many years," he added. "I learned so much from my mother. She was just incredible. Warm, loving, really smart, could be tough if she had to be, but basically she was a really nice person," the POTUS said in his Mother's Day message posted on Twitter.
