Ivanka Trump raised eyebrows on Wednesday, when she made a vague announcement that she was “en route to The Hague!,” the Netherlands home of the International Criminal Court that has indicted the likes of Muammar Gaddafi and Joseph Kony. But no, she wasn’t there for that type of trip to The Hague.
The unintentional hilarity of her tweet, emojis and all—that Ivanka, a (technical) member of the Trump administration was going to the place where crimes against humanity have historically been tried—was swiftly noted on Twitter. “What are the charges?” cracked one respondent. “Finally!” said another. Indeed, while you have her there, can someone at The Hague have a talk with her about family separation?
No, the First Daughter, fresh off a controversial state visit to the U.K., wasn’t charged with anything—not yet, anyway! She appeared to visit the U.S. embassy at The Hague, meeting with U.S. service members stationed there. But you never know, maybe she—or her father—might return some day?
