The 2021 Met Gala took over the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute in New York City on September 13, bringing out all the big players in the world of celebrity and fashion. But, once again, the Trump family were nowhere to be seen and The Lincoln Project wasted no time in reminding Ivanka Trump in particular about her family’s apparent ban.
Over on Twitter, The Lincoln Project posted a tweet that read, “EXCLUSIVE: We have obtained a leaked screen-recording of @IvankaTrump preparing for tonight’s #MetGala” alongside a screen recording showing someone searching for novelty disguise glasses with a false nose and moustache. The video was viewed more than 125,000 times in just over 16 hours.
Others then took it upon themselves to share other humorous takes on Ivanka and her husband, Jared Kushner, being left out in the cold, as it’s assumed the two weren’t invited. “Can anyone RT pics of Ivanka and Jared from the Met Gala tonight? Thx,” one person jokingly tweeted, while another wrote, “Met Gala tonight, eh? Ivanka and Jared won’t be needing a babysitter tonight.” A third teased, “Hey @IvankaTrump what did Jared wear to the Met Gala?”
The two haven’t responded on their social media accounts and don’t appear to have spoken publicly about seemingly no longer being on the guest list for the prestigious event, though we’re sure Ivanka probably has a good sense of humor over her absence.
