The Internet reacts to Ivanka Trump's awkward behaviour at the G20 Summit
Daughter and advisor to the President of the United States Donald Trump, the ever-elegant Ivanka Trump has become the subject of a viral video that's sending the Twitterverse into a frenzy. The 19-second clip — which was released by the French presidential office — shows Ivanka attempting to insert herself into a conversation between a group of high-power world leaders that included French prime minister Emmanuel Macron, departing British prime minister Theresa May, International Monetary Fund's managing director Christine Lagarde, and Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau.
While the audio is muffled, here's the transcript of the conversation.
Emmanuel Macron clearly utters the term, "social justice".
Ivanka replies, "It's on".
Theresa May jumps in at this point, "As soon as you start talking about the economic aspect of it, a lot of people start listening, who wouldn't otherwise listen."
Ivanka replies, "And it's the same with the defence side."
Christine Lagarde does a double-take and realises Ivanka is standing beside her.
Unperturbed, Ivanka continues, "In terms of (wildly gestures with her hands in search of an explanation), the whole defence system been so male-dominant, so..." She trails off.

Her awkward behaviour launched a meme frenzy on Twitter and Instagram yesterday, where her detractors photoshopped press images of her onto significant cultural events with the hastag #unwantedivanka.
