Ivanka Trump on Insensitive Instagram Pic: Oops! My Bad!

by at .

According to at least one supposedly reliable source, Ivanka Trump is unlike her father in a rather important and mature way:

She can admit when she's wrong.

And this source tells Us Weekly that the First Daughter is well aware she messed up on Saturday by posting a certain image to her Instagram account.

Ivanka Trump Says Hi

The 35-year old came under fire over the weekend after sharing a photo of herself in a silver Carolina Herrera gown on her various social media account.

The picture was snapped while Trump was attending the annual Alfalfa Club dinner.

And while this could have typically been shrugged off as just another example of Trump flaunting her wealth, good looks and status online for all to see... well...

... Saturday was not exactly a typical day across the nation Ivanka's dad now rules.

In response to President Trump's Executive Order that banned refugee access to the United States from seven predominantly Muslim countries, thousands of protestors took to airports around the country. 

There were gatherings held in support of immigrants in Chicago, Nashville, Los Angeles and New York, to name just a few cities.

So many critics considered it rather tone-deaf of Ivanka to not only NOT mention these protests online, but to post a photo that depicted her luxurious lifestyle for all to see.

And Trump reportedly understands this viewpoint.

A source familiar with the situation told Vanity Fair today that Trump "feels terrible about the post, and does not want something like this to happen again."

She has not deleted the post, but this sort of recognition is a good start.

A second insider, meanwhile, told the news outlet that although the post showed her "naiveté in not understanding her surroundings or circumstances," Ivanka "can adjust her behavior accordingly, and she's open to that."

And then there's a third source, who actually says Trump had no idea any sort of protests were even going on throughout the country.

How is this possible?

Because, according to this report, Ivanka and her husband were in the middle of observing Shabbat.

Both halve of couple are Orthodox Jews, meaning they don't use technology or do any work between sundown Friday and sundown Saturday.

Could they truly have not known about Trump's Muslim ban and the subsequent outrage? And then Ivanka Tweeted the controversial photo above after sundown on Saturday, but before checking the news?

It's possible, we suppose.

But we still can't blame those who fired back with insults, quips and comments such as the one below:

Ivanka slam

Kushner is, somehow, a close advisor to President Trump.

Ivanka, conversely, does not official role in her father's administration, but she stuck closely by his side throughout the 2016 presidential campaign and has moved her family to DC since he won the election.

She has not made a public comment about the Women's March held on January 21 or about the protests in response to her father's Executive Order last Friday.

A source close to the Ivanka told Us Weekly last week that her dad "looks to Ivanka for advice and consultation on almost everything." Which is a scary prospect, if you think about.

Then again... Donald talking to Steve Bannon about almost everything is A LOT scarier.
