French say oops on viral Ivanka moment


'We didnít anticipate the reaction,' a French official said after a video released by the French government fueled concern about Ivanka Trump's role in U.S. foreign policy.

BRUSSELS ó The French presidency is feeling a tad awkward after a video it posted of Ivanka Trumpís seemingly stilted interactions with foreign leaders went viral and spawned mockery, insisting that it ďdidnít anticipate the reaction.Ē

The video caught Ivanka Trump in a discussion with world leaders during her father President Donald Trumpís recent visit to the G-20 summit. And it has fueled concern that the presidentís daughter is having undue influence on U.S. foreign policy.

In the clip, Ivanka Trump is shown trying to engage in a talk with a handful of foreign leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron and Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund.

The full context of the conversation isnít clear, but at one point, British Prime Minister Theresa May says: ďAs soon as you charge them with that economic aspect of it, a lot of people start listening who otherwise wouldnít listen.Ē

Ivanka Trump appears to be trying to get involved in a talk among Macron, May, Trudeau and Lagarde (IMF head).
The video is released by French Presidential palace. https://t.co/TJ0LULCzyQ

8. Every photo that shows Christine Lagarde with "world" leaders that includes Ivanka

shows her giving her no eye contact whatsoever. Freezing her out. Love it!

9. Ivanka Trump Feminist Champion!!

Nice job placing her stilettoed, botoxed, surgically altered feminist ass in charge of the women's movement


"Ivanka is the White Houseís leading representative on issues of womenís empowerment..."

NOPE.
