Merry Christmas from Mar-a-Lago: Tiffany and Ivanka Trump Mocked for Bikini-Clad Video
In a new Twitter video, first daughters Tiffany and Ivanka Trump blew kisses to followers -- but received mostly criticism in return
In a new Twitter video, first daughters Tiffany and Ivanka Trump blew kisses to followers — but received mostly criticism in return.
In the short clip — which was posted by President Trump’s younger daughter, Tiffany, on Twitter and Instagram on Tuesday — the two women wear swimsuits and sunglasses as they lounge by the pool at their father’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida and the song “O Holy Night” plays. A filter featuring angel wings and a halo hovers over the sisters as they blow kisses and Tiffany wishes fans a Merry Christmas.
While the post received some positive responses, for others on Twitter, it was all too much to bear.
Some critics suggested the first daughters should be participating in more charitable activities over the holidays, while others found the post itself unseemly.

“You and your family are so out of touch with reality,” one commenter wrote. “Enjoy your vacation while people struggle every day.”
“Ugh. I hope my tax dollars aren’t going to this mess,” tweeted another.
Trump marked his first Christmas as president with his family at Mar-a-Lago, where he also teleconferenced with the troops, spoke with young kids looking for Santa Claus and attended a late-night church service, according to CNN.
In the early morning hours of Wednesday, Tiffany sent out another tweet from Mar-a-Lago, this time sharing a photo of herself in a pale pink, off-the-shoulder bodycon dress.
“Wishing everyone a happy and peaceful year to come!” she wrote on Twitter and Instagram.
Tiffany and her older half-sister, Ivanka, an advisor to the president, weren’t the only Trump women to experiment with social media filters over the Christmas holiday. On Monday, First Lady Melania Trump also faced criticism for posting a filtered selfie featuring a Santa hat and sparkling reindeer.
And in another Twitter controversy on Tuesday, some critics pointed out that Ivanka’s family vacation photos featured a Confederate flag in the background.
Though the boat bearing the Confederate flag did not appear to have ties to the Trumps, The Daily Dot noted that it “might not be the best optics” given President Trump’s widely condemned defense of the white nationalists whose efforts to protect Confederate monuments turned deadly in Charlottesville, Virginia, last August.
Former Office of Government Ethics director Walter Shaub tweeted: “Confederate flag over Jared’s shoulder. Couldn’t find four photos without one? Or is this a dogwhistle?”
