Cheesed-Off English Gal Explains To Donald Trump Who 'Ivanka' Is
She seems genuinely nice. Can we replace the entire Trump family with her?
Here's a story involving Donald Trump and Twitter that, for a change, doesn't involve any accidental diplomatic crises or screaming at beloved civil rights icons or even popular entertainers, so yay.
On Monday, Trump was doing some of his important president-elect work, retweeting compliments people had sent out about him and his family and what terrific people they are, when he passed along this very nice comment that he thought was about his daughter, who is smokin' hot and whom he'd definitely date if they weren't related:
Funny thing, though: The @Ivanka there is actually not his daughter; she is a nice woman in Brighton, England, named Ivanka Majic, and before you start getting ideas, Mr. Trump, she is married, OK? Ms. Majic and her husband woke up to a whole bunch of calls from reporters wanting to know what she thought of the American president-elect mixing her up with his own daughter, whose Twitter handle is actually @IvankaTrump.
"I came downstairs to check my phone and I had so many notifications," she told the BBC. "It's very unusual to be speaking to both ITV and the BBC 45 minutes into your day."
She said that she's always gotten a few misdirected Tweets, but nothing like the deluge after That Man mistakenly retweeted her name:
"Without Donald Trump it's a steady simmer of mentions," she said. "I am kind of like that @johnlewis bloke but John Lewis is probably nicer to be associated with."
We'd have to agree! But she figured, what the hey, if I've got his attention, I may as well do something about it, eh? So she replied:
Hollywood Reporter's Michael Wolff profiled Donald Trump, and was amazed to meet someone more self-obsessed than Michael Wolff.
Maybe she's Writing A Letter to Daddy.
Still, Ivanka Majic seems like a remarkably nice person for someone whose Twitter machine is all clogged up with doofuses shouting "MAGA" all the time, as this brief BBC interview makes clear.
It turns out that "Ivanka" is really "an incredibly boring and popular Slavic girls name," says Ms. Majic. In addition to Donald Trump's daughter, she says, "The other one I get confused with is an Hungarian concrete company called Ivanka concrete." We checked them out, and it looks like they do solid work:
So is it worth the trouble?
"I'm still undecided about whether to change my username. I don't use Twitter very much partly as a result as having so many mentions. Tweets from normal people get lost in the mix."
"I'm someone who has used twitter since 2007. A new thing comes along and you create a username never thinking that one day Ivanka Trump's dad will be President."
With all the new followers she's gotten as a result of this confusion, here's hoping she at least hears from a few more normal people, a group decidedly outside the TrumpFan profile.
