Ivanka Trump bizarrely tags Meat Loaf in a photo with her father for no apparent reason
Ivanka Trump

Of all the Trumpfamily, Ivanka Trump is perhaps the most reserved and conservative on social media. But that doesn’t mean that she can’t still put stuff out there that’s really weird. 

In perhaps one of the most baffling social media posts shared by anybody ever associated with a president, Ivanka Trump shared a picture of she and her father on Air Force One en route to a rally in Georgia in support of the Republican candidates in the state’s run-off election.

That’s not the weird part. The weird part was who she had tagged in the tweet. There were five accounts; the official GOP account, White House deputy chief of staff Dan Scavino, David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler, two candidates running in the election and ‘Bat out of Hell’ singer Meat Loaf

Four of those make sense, the last one does not.

There doesn’t appear to be any obvious reason as to why she has done this. Meat Loaf is from Texas so is unlikely to have any interest or pull in Georgia and hasn’t been active on Twitter since April 2019.

Meat Loaf was a former contestant on the Celebrity Apprentice when it was still hosted by Trump but that is the only real connection to the pair.

Those trying to get to the bottom of this strange incident have suggested that Ivanka might have mistaken her dad and the singer’s account as their handles both start with the word ‘real’ and Ivanka does follow Meat Loaf on Twitter.

Many others were just completely bemused and there has been plenty of ridicule for the president’s eldest daughter.

It is reminiscent of the time when she tried to wish her younger sister Tiffany Trump a happy birthday, only to tag the wrong Tiffany Trump.

Although Trump and his entourage only have a few weeks left in the White House, we do sincerely hope that Ivanka continues her Twitter weirdness when she returns to the real world.
