People struggled to imagine what hardships the favourite child of a billionaire might have endured, and we particularly enjoyed these reactions.
Indeed, your memior. That time you ran out of La Prarie Skin Cavier Concealer Fondation and had to resort to Creme de la Mer Moisturizing Cream and you survived, dear girl. You survived! https://t.co/eNJqfT6Ere

Seeing as Ivanka had invoked the name of Star Wars, Mark Hamill deserves the last word with this comprehensive takedown of the President.
Sadly for our country, your father fails in every aspect of that Joseph Campbell quote. He has proven himself completely unready to be President. He has shown his "character" & how profoundly unworthy & unfit he is for the office he holds. A real hero would realize this & resign. https://t.co/JpApPoFffg
