When Donald Trump went after then-Congressman Barney Frank about his ‘nipples protruding’ in a 2011 tweet, eight years later the same thing happened to his daughter Ivanka at the UN General Assembly.
Ivanka Trump, 37, suffered an unfortunate wardrobe malfunction on Sept. 23 when attending the U.N. General Assembly. She wore a long-sleeved blue blouse but apparently didn’t wear a bra, as her nipples protruded through the thin fabric of her shirt. In a twist of history, her father Donald Trump, 73, shamed a male politician in 2011 for having the same thing happen to him. Then-U.S. Rep. Barney Frank, 79, from Massachusetts was Trump’s target back then and now the old tweet has resurfaced, blue shirt reference and all.
“Barney Frank looked disgusting–nipples protruding–in his blue shirt before Congress. Very very disrespectful,” Trump tweeted on Dec. 21, 2011 when still a private citizen and now it’s coming back to haunt the president. Several creative folks have taken his tweet and put a photo of Ivanka with her nipples protruding through a blue shirt next to it. One named Jay Arnold even wrote “For full context, you can’t make this sh*t up.”
Another Twitter user named Joe Negan did a side by side pic of Ivanka and Barney with their nipples protruding through their blue shirts and asked “Who wore it best?” Many people pointed out that, “Yet again, there’s always a tweet,” when it comes to Trump’s long Twitter history of tweeting about everything and anything. A user named Mike remarked, “@realDonaldTrump You even got the color correct.”

A Twitter user named Daniel wrote, “More Clarity on Ivanka Boob pic. Generally wouldn’t care and I am a huge fan on breasts and would just let it be and call it a gift. But, cmon, the Trump tweet from 2011 chastising Barney Frank’s boobs in a blue shirt, made it hilarious.” A user named Robert joked, “Barney Frank was wearing an Ivanka design back then! Something from her blue ‘Brrr It’s Chilly In Here’ collection. A Trump tweet about Ivanka is pending, but in the meantime . . . THANK YOU IVANKA, WORKING HARD!”
