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:

Not that she really had the Great Man's attention; the man has no attention span unless he's talking about himself, and climate change is definitely not interesting to him. Maybe if they renamed CO2 "Clinton Gas," then he'd want to reduce it. In any case, at least Ivanka Majic and Ivanka Trump may have that much in common: an interest in fighting climate change that will have absolutely no influence on President Trump, who happens to know that climate change is a plot made up by the Heathen Chinee to ruin America's economy.

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:

Yooge. Solid. Probably pays its bills.

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.
