Ivanka Trump has single-handedly redefined the word irony

Ivanka Trump is one of the few members of the clan who appears to actually be enjoying her father’s unlikely rise to power in the United States.

Previously known for a spot of modelling and her clothing line – and that was about it – following Donald’s win the November election, she assumed an unpaid position as an advisor to her father.

Despite, like her father, having no previous political experience, she is now very firmly one of his inner circle, and is, seemingly, ‘the president’s conscience’; according to her brother Eric, she was behind Trump’s decision to launch military action against Bashar al-Assad in Syria back in April.

She also controversially briefly took her father’s seat during a G20 session in Hamburg, sitting amongst hugely-powerful world leaders, provoking scorn and derision from commentators – historian Anne Applebaum was quoted by Agence France-Presse as criticising what she called “an unelected, unqualified, unprepared New York socialite” being seen as “the best person to represent American national interests”.

Now, bear that all the above in mind – her clear position of influence, the fact that she has the ear of the most powerful man in the world – and take a look at this:

Hmmm. Something about that doesn’t sound right.

Would the greatest scientist in history – would any scientist in history – really say this?

Well, no.

By picking up on this tweet, originally posted in 2013, Colin Dickey appears to have pinpointed the exact moment that ‘alternative facts’ were born. His observation went viral over the weekend, leading to some further Twitter gold.

And the real story behind the ‘quote’? Read on...
