In a video posted to Instagram by the French government that quickly went viral online, Ivanka appears to attempt to enter into a conversation with world leaders who seem unsure of her interjections.
Watch the video below:
Ivanka Trump appears to be trying to get involved in a talk among Macron, May, Trudeau and Lagarde (IMF head).

The short video gained even more notoriety when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) blasted it out to her millions of Twitter followers, writing that “being someone’s daughter actually isn’t a career qualification.”
Quickly, the internet got creative with the idea of Photoshopping Ivanka in other places where she might not be cheered, and the hashtag #UnwantedIvanka began trending online.
She appeared on Abby Road beside The Beatles:

And at Michael Jordan’s NBA championship celebration and Martin Luther King Jr.’s speech on the steps of the Lincoln Monument.

Or here during a meeting between Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin:

And here in that final scene of “Titanic” when Jack and Rose were floating toward the end of their love.
Must be nice to be proud of your leader. Last we were proud of ours was with the great @BarackObama. Now you are just a laughingstock of the world. And then there's your shanda spawn of a daughter, whose #UnwantedIvanka status launched a million memes. Memes Are Great Again! pic.twitter.com/U3W11M8KYN

Though the French government posted the video of Ivanka that set off the #UnwantedIvanka meme-storm, it says it’s not to blame.
“We didn’t anticipate the reaction, and once again, we are not responsible for the use made of the clip,” an official told Politico.
But Ivanka’s presence representing the United States on the world stage isn’t a new phenomenon.
In early June, she was part of a delegation to the United Kingdom in which she and national security adviser John Bolton were booed by British protesters as they were leaving 10 Downing Street. Trump’s adult sons were also on that trip despite the fact that neither of them has a job in the administration.
