Ivanka Trump Sends Well Wishes To Prince Harry And Meghan Markle, Promptly Gets Slammed For It

In simpler times, a simple note of well wishes from one famous person to another high-profile individual would be accepted for what it is and not cause anything even close to a stir. Alas, these are not simpler times. If that note happens to be posted on social media? Forget about it - especially if the one that’s posting it attracts heat like a jet black t-shirt on a hot summer day. Ivanka Trump certainly falls into that category, as there’s virtually nothing that she can post on social media without being ripped to shreds.

As Elite Daily shares, a perfect example of that recently came up when she decided to congratulate Prince Harry and Meghan Markle on their pending nuptials.

"Wishing Meghan and Prince Harry a lifetime of love, laughter and happiness together," she wrote. "I have no doubt that this couple will do extraordinary things, both individually and collectively. Congratulations!"

As anyone with an average comprehension level can see, there’s not a whole lot to see here. Ivanka wanted to congratulate the couple, and she did. However, scores of users decided that there was some hidden meaning and whatnot, and they weren’t shy about sharing what they came up with when they read between the lines.

“Hoo boy. It’s so transparent that you’re practically begging for a royal wedding invite. Not gonna happen, princess,” shared one user.

Even after re-reading the post a dozen times or so and parsing the participles backwards and forwards, it’s pretty tough to see anything resembling transparency here. There was no ‘hope to see you soon’ or ‘what time is the ceremony’ or any other kind of nonsense, just a pretty standard note that would be offered up to a couple that just announced they had tied the knot.

“They don’t care what you wish them. They don’t like you and yours any more than we do,” added another commenter.

While it’s unclear if the commenter has any kind of inside knowledge of the personal feelings of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, we’re going to safely assume that’s not the case. We get it. The commenter obviously doesn’t care for the Trump clan. But does that dislike mean that it’s perfectly acceptable to be so nasty about things?

“Meghan and Prince Harry, all rational Americans, as well as every person throughout the rest of the world, see your family as this... and no one wants that element even on their lawn, in the gutter in front of their house or in their neighborhood, let alone at a state wedding,” added another poster, who felt the need to share a bizarre picture of folks without shirts that were raising Confederate flags.
The poster claims to be speaking for a whole lot of people, but that’s a rather bold assertion. While it’s certainly possible that the poster knows a whole bunch of folks that think, feel, and act the same way, that doesn’t mean that everyone does. In fact, there are even people that feel a whole lot different about things, but that can be tough to recognize when you refuse to listen to anything but the same song over and over again.

It was just another day in the life for Ivanka Trump on social media, and it’s truly a wonder why she even bothers to share anything anymore.
