Ivanka Trump was accused of gaslighting after tweeting advice on how to stay safe amid the coronavirus pandemic this Fourth of July:

Please be safe & responsible this holiday weekend. As we celebrate this 4th of July, follow state & local guidelines to keep you & your loved ones safe. Practice proper hygiene, social distancing & wear a mask when in close proximity to others. 🇺🇸

— Ivanka Trump (@IvankaTrump) July 4, 2020

The guidance tweeted by President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser late Friday ― on wearing masks and social distancing ― was sound enough.

But it was not well received on Twitter, where critics noted her father’s attendance at an Independence Day celebration at South Dakota’s Mount Rushmore National Memorial, where there was little social distancing or wearing of masks by people in the crowd.

“Gas lighting alert,” tweeted Walter Shaub, the former head of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics, in response:

Other detractors were similarly angered:

DO YOU SPEAK TO YOUR FATHER

Pres. Trump is playing host to a large gathering tonight at Mount Rushmore where little evidence people are wearing masks and they are sitting quite close together. So there's that. https://t.co/giblXlOHLn

The absolute and total lack of shame is breathtaking. Just an utter inability to hear herself. Repulsive and repugnant villains, the whole wretched bunch. https://t.co/AX35V116a6

Unless you're attending a Trump event, of course. https://t.co/22Ttb1vHqS

This surge in coronavirus cases across the country is the result of your profound lack of leadership. Tens of thousands are dead because of you. You will never wash your ha ds of that.

Your brother's girlfriend just tested positive. They don't wear masks. Neither does your idiot father.
