Social media is having a field day over a photo which circulated on Twitter appearing to show Senator Marco Rubio trying to hug Ivanka Trump on Capitol Hill yesterday.
The two met before a meeting with lawmakers to discuss parental leave and Rubio went in for a hug. But the awkward photo appears to show the first daughter and presidential adviser looking like an unwilling participant with her arms down at her sides. Twitter went crazy and Rubio actually joined in on the fun with his own series of tweets.
The senator tweeted, "Just left Intel comm & informed meeting 2day with @IvankaTrump blowing up twitter over alleged failed hug! Investigating. Will respond soon." He later followed that up with, "We believe we have our own unclassified photographic evidence that will shed greater details on this incident. We are also attempting to acquire multi-angle video which we believe will provide greater insight into this important matter."
Finally, Rubio shared a different photo showing Ivanka's hand on his shoulder and he concluded the investigation by borrowing a word from her father saying, "Based on review of evidence & my own recollection, have concluded no hug was even attempted & press covfefe of alleged failed hug is false." Ivanka even got in on it tweeting, "Fake news! Marco is an excellent hugger."
The media and other "haters" are so quick to want to take ANYTHING and make it negative. Way to go Sen. Rubio and the First Daughter, for having some fun with it! Shows they are pretty darn good sports and get the foolishness of these kinds of "reports!"
