Ivanka Trump Celebrates Son Theodore's 4th Birthday with Sweet Photos on Instagram
The political advisor and activist is focusing on what’s most important and valuable to her, her children, during these times of recommended social distancing and reflection.
On March 27, 2020, the US President’s daughter and senior advisor Ivanka Trump’s youngest child Theodor celebrated his fourth birthday, and she marked the occasion by sharing an adorable slideshow in her Instagram feed.
Since the coronavirus outbreak has limited everybody’s movement as a preventive measure to slow down the spread of the pandemic, Ivanka shared a collection of photographic memories from more fun times in the life of little Theodor.
There are several images of Theodor as well as his two siblings spending time in the White House, starting with a snapshot of all three children wearing costumes and ready to go trick-or-treating, with Theodor dressed as Winnie the Pooh.
There is also a picture of Theodor held by his father Jared Kushner from years ago, in addition to a couple of images featuring Theodor’s grandfather, US Head of State Donald Trump at the Oval Office.
Ivanka captioned the post wishing a happy birthday to her “sweet baby Theo,” adding that:
“He is joy personified and lights up our home, and envelops our hearts, with his kindness and laughter.”
The post received more than 220 thousand likes in a matter of 12 hours, and prompted many of Ivanka’s fans to take to the comments section to wish her son a happy birthday.
COVID-19 POST BACKLASH
While Ivanka’s above mentioned birthday post was unanimously well-received among her fans and followers, her post of the previous day, on which she tried to do the public a service ended up in backlash.
On March 26, Ivanka uploaded a video to Instagram that showed her three children, ages 4 to 8, as they washed her hands while singing the alphabet as a demonstration of how to wash hands properly to fight the coronavirus.
Reminding the public that “we all have a role to play to slow the spread” of the virus, Ivanka invited people to wash their hands and at the same time save water and admitted that teaching her children was “still a work in progress.”
The trouble started when some social media users noticed that Ivanka’s children were washing their hands with a $39 bottle of Aesop soap, something that was deemed insensitive to the economical consequences of the pandemic.
Angry netizens took to social media to criticize Ivanka for her tone-deafness in a crisis that is affecting millions of people whose jobs are in danger.
“Ivanka Trump posted a video of her children washing their hands with $39 hand soap. What’s next, tomorrow she’ll tell us to eat $100 cakes?” a person tweeted.
Others pointed out how much water Ivanka’s children were “wasting,” while some others even made comments aimed at Ivanka’s father.
