Fox News reports that Rep. Ilhan Omar drew very strong criticism on social media after she reacted poorly to a family photo post by Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka, 38, suggested families make the best of their time at home together during the coronavirus outbreak.

Ivanka showed a photo of herself with her children having a “living room camp out” along with sandwiches and other treats.

“A fun activity that also brings family together for a meal!” she wrote.

“It won’t mitigate the fear and pain,” Trump wrote. “But it may foster some joy. Let’s come together as a community and share ideas on how to entertain our children (and each other) and create some positive memories in an otherwise frightening moment.”

Omar used this opportunity during the coronavirus outbreak to make a political point.

“Thinking of all the families separated forcefully by your father’s policies today,” Omar wrote.

Mocking Ivanka’s tweet, Omar suggested that Ivanka to “share your ideas on how you plan to unite them.”

The Minnesota Democrat’s response drew numerous critical reactions, with many suggesting that Omar’s recent divorce and subsequent remarriage – to a man with whom she was allegedly having an extramarital affair – made her unqualified to criticize another woman’s comments on the subject of family.

“Why do you need to be so hateful?” one responder asked Omar. “Ivanka shared a simple family suggestion and you had to be spiteful and mean. Not something a true leader would do. Awful. I’m praying for this country to heal in all ways. You should try it.”

“They separated themselves when they decided to break the law,” another wrote, referring to illegal immigrant families at the border. “They need to come here LEGALLY.”

“Now? During the crisis? Free immigration now?” another wrote. “Open borders? You’ve displayed your opportunistic political virtue signaling, lack of patriotism and blatant hypocrisy once again.”

To be sure, other commenters joined Omar in attacking Ivanka Trump.

“Cool tent Ivanka,” one wrote. “I hope you thanked whichever one of your servants set it up for you.”

“Cool privilege on display,” another wrote.

The first daughter also attracted support.

“So many don’t realize how amazing you are,” one commenter wrote. “You’re doing a good job keeping everyone calm. We appreciate your fam.”
