U.S. Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed British journalist Piers Morgan after he mocked the her former job bartending while defending Ivanka Trump for traveling to the G-20 summit.

This stream of Photoshopped images placing Ivanka Trump in historic situations where she clearly doesn't belong is amusing, but it also points to President Donald Trump's overwhelming need to keep the global spotlight locked on him - Ivanka being his favored brand ambassador - at all times and costs.

At a 2017 G20 summit, Trump, who was given a White House role despite no previous political experience, sat in for the president during a meeting with world leaders. In video released by the French Presidential palace, she's seen trying to get involved in a conversation with French President Emmanuel Macron, British Prime Minister Theresa May, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and International Monetary Fund head Christine Lagarde.

Ocasio-Cortez argued that "being someone's daughter actually isn't a career qualification" and that Trump should have brought a "qualified diplomat" to the worldwide gathering. "Bringing a qualified diplomat couldn't hurt either". In the video, Ms Trump is seen attempting to talk about social justice but proceeds to tail off in her speech with the world leaders. "The video is released by French Presidential palace", Ghobadi wrote.

As well as reports of her regularly interjecting herself into meetings involving the president and members of Congress, Trump has also received prior criticism for representing her father on foreign soil.

But Trump has fanned the flames by suggesting that he would put Ivanka forward for more senior roles, including leading the World Bank.
