Celebrities are reacting to Ivanka Trump sitting in on a G20 meeting for her dad, President Donald Trump. See Twitter reaction tweets from Hollywood stars below.

On Saturday, a Russian aide tweeted a photo showing Ivanka sitting in her father’s seat at a meeting with world leaders, including Theresa May, Angela Merkel and Xi Jinping of China. She was initially seated a few rows back, but stepped in to take her dad’s place when he briefly left the room. The Trump administration is insisting there is nothing untoward about that, given that other leaders had seat-fillers.

But a number of celebs don’t see it that way. Josh Gad tweeted, “Imagine if Chelsea Clinton sat in a President Hillary’s place at the G20? Or Jenna Bush sat in for GW. What universe are we living in?” Will Arnett wrote, “This just keeps getting better.” Ricky Gervais admitted, “A year ago I would have thought this was ridiculous.” And John Cusack called it “monarchy behavior from a deranged man.”

“Totally normal – remember amy carter at the camp david accords – sitting in for jimmy who was just too tired from golfing #WTF,” said a sarcastic Rosie O’Donnell. Tom Arnold also retweeted a reporter, who had posted, “Had Michelle Obama (more qualified than Ivanka) filled Barack’s seat at the G-20, the media and the GOP would be calling for impeachment.” George Takei asked, “Ivanka, couldn’t you have at least re-admitted us to the Paris Climate Accords during your brief reign?”

And Jeffrey Wright cracked, “US is the only #G20 country to withdraw from the #ParisAgreement & to recognize #BringYourDaughterToWorkDay. #LoseSomeWinSome. That’s nice.” Ivanka’s brother, Donald Jr., addressed the situation when commentator Ana Navarro wrote on Twitter, “Given choice b/w Pres. Donald or Pres. Ivanka, I’d take her. After all, she’s smart and eloquent and knows how to make champagne popsicles.”

“She is VERY smart & eloquent,” Don Jr. replied about his sister. “You can belittle her all you want w your snark, but we all know 1 on 1 she way out of your league.” He went on to write, “If the left is so ‘outraged’ about Ivanka sitting in for a few minutes, maybe they’d be happier if I sub in for a while??? LMK #MAGA.” When someone replied, “No, no, no,” the First Son responded, “That’s what I thought… get over it and move on. Sometimes you just need some perspective. #yourewelcome.”

Coincidentally, prior to the incident, the president praised the First Daughter at a different G20 event. “If she weren’t my daughter, it would be so much easier for her. Might be the only bad thing she has going, if you want to know the truth,” he said, adding, “I am very proud of my daughter, Ivanka.” But her decision to be part of the official U.S. delegation and temporary serve in her dad’s shoes comes just a few weeks after Ivanka said she tries to “stay out of politics.”
