Ivanka Trump Had A Dance Party With Her Children, And People Are Crying Foul

By Justin Luke

On Thursday, May 5th, Ivanka Trump posted a video of herself dancing with her children. The caption read:

Little moments matter, especially for working moms!! #TBT to an after-work dance party with my boys. Working Mother Magazine outlined 10 additional things I have to say about motherhood in my #WomenWhoWorkBook. See the article at: workingmother.com/10-times-ivanka-trump-gets-real-about-wor…

Though the video is undeniably adorable, many are questioning its motives. A recent article in The New York Times points out that Ivanka has been told to post more motherly content by the White House to appear more normal to the common working mother:

An internal document lists one of her challenges as ‘perceived as rich and unrelatable.’ [An additional one: Most of her followers on social media were men.] Trump was told to post more down-to-earth pictures on her Instagram feed — less made-up model, more mommy.

The post is also getting some negative attention because Ivanka plugged her book in the caption. Though many authors use social-media to promote their products, very few of them also have high-level positions in the White House thanks to her father of course.
