Ivanka Trump’s lab coat Instagram photo becomes an instant meme

Ivanka Trump, the daughter and adviser of President Donald Trump, posted a photo of herself on Instagram to promote “infrastructure in Iowa” on Monday. It quickly became a mocking meme.

Ivanka Trump—who is wearing a white lab coat, blue gloves, and safety goggles in the photo—was reportedly taking part in the same science experiments as students at Waukee Aspiring Professional Experience’s (APEX) Innovation & Learning Center, according to Business Insider.

While there, she wore the lab attire while testing the nicotine content of “vape juice” used in e-cigarettes, according to the news outlet.

“I can’t promise that I’ll get this right, but at least we’ll look the part, right?” she said.

The “look” was too much for Twitter not to turn into an instant meme.


And of course–given Ivanka Trump’s scientist outfit–someone had to bring up the “I’m something of a scientist myself” meme. But hey, at least she’s officially no longer in her punk rock phase.
