First Daughter Ivanka Trump posted a snap with her two year-old son Theodore on Sunday morning (May 27), in which both are in their pajamas staring into each other’s eyes with the caption, “My ! #SundayMorning.”
The innocent photo of the mother and son drew backlash from Halsey, though, who responded with a sharp rebuke tied to the news over the weekend that an official in the Department of Hearth and Human services testified during a Senate subcommittee meeting last month that the Trump administration had somehow lost track of of nearly 1,500 unaccompanied immigrant children it had placed in the homes of sponsors.
“I wonder what #SundayMorning is like for the parents of 1500 lost children your father is responsible for. Fuck your #SundayMorning,” Halsey wrote.

While some supporters told haters to back off and let Ivanka have a moment with her child, a large number weighed in with sentiments similar to Halsey’s. See some of the reactions below.
@IvankaTrump is so tone deaf, and a hypocrite. Shame on her.

Ivanka, as a mother, try to imagine what these immigrant mothers must be feeling to know ICE has list their small children, some not yet 2 years old. Do something to help them!!! Use your platform for good for once!!! #WhereAreTheChildren

Look. I have professional photographers to capture moments when I dress in expensive clothes and monetize my relationship with my kid by posting it to untold people I don’t know. Look how cool I am in a world where other kids are being separated from their mothers by my dad.

Your post today is both profoundly inconsiderate and appalling. Being a part of the presidential family, regardless of your position in the White House, you are in a position of authority and power. How dare you post such a gloating image while hundreds of families get torn apart

Hang on tight, Ivanka. Your dad may rip your children from your arms and send them to the concrete floors of holding cells. Or even better, take your child and give him to smugglers or traffickers or, or, or. 1500 CHILDREN ARE MISSING. DOESN’T ANY TRUMP THINK THAT IS WRONG? NOT 1
