The Trump family was out in force in Georgia on Monday ahead of today’s (Jan. 5) crucial run-off election that will determine the balance of power in the Senate when Democrat Joe Biden takes over on Jan. 20. In addition to one term soon-to-be-ex-President Trump, First Daughter Ivanka Trump headed South to try and rev up the Republican base.
And, as with so many things Trump, things got super weird and confusing along the way. In this case, it was when Ivanka apparently mistagged a photo of her dad on Twitter, briefly tagging one-time Celebrity Apprentice contestant and “Bat Out of Hell” rocker @RealMeatLoaf instead of her pops, which, of course, led to all the jokes.
The “I’d Do Anything For Love (But I Won’t Do That)” singer got pulled into the fray when Ivanka tweeted, “Off to Georgia with Dad!” along with a selfie. And while the goof-up tag was removed, you better believe that plenty of people screengrabbed it and brought the jokes about the mishap.
At press time Loaf, who doesn’t appear to have tweeted since April 2019, had not responded to the tweet pas.
Check out the original tweet and some of the best responses below.

Ivanka Trump accidentally tagging MeatLoaf instead of her dad is the best thing to have happened in 2021 so far. pic.twitter.com/IzUCCG0SqX

I suspect that Ivanka had Meatloaf on her mind because she's thinking that after Inauguration she and Jarad will be out of there "Like a Bat Out of Hell".

With Meat Loaf suddenly thrust back into the zeitgeist thanks to Ivanka Trump, I present a rare picture of myself without a beard, playing Classic Meat Loaf at UCB! pic.twitter.com/o71XjLQa1i

Ivanka tagged Meat Loaf because at this point he somehow miraculously adds a bit of luster to the Trump brand.

One assumes Ivanka Trump did not mean to tag Grammy winning musical artist Meat Loaf in the selfie she took with the President aboard AF1, en route to tonight’s rally in GA, but at this point in the cycle a surprise Meat Loaf appearance wouldn’t even be *today’s* weirdest thing. pic.twitter.com/qQa4AtouLa

I’m thinking someone said Ivanka’s nickname for Trump is meat loaf. Maybe @CaslerNoel would know.

This goes directly back to the origin and the Obama speech where he roasts Trump and has a Meatloaf joke.. the whole reason why Trump got in this thing for revenge on those jokes.. and now Ivanka just labels him Meatloaf like Trump has actually merged into the form of Meatloaf
