Ivanka Trump’s visit to the state of Iowa labs at the Waukee Aspiring Professional Experience’s (APEX) Innovation and Learning Center became a meme after she posted a picture of herself ‘pretending’ to be a scientist on Twitter. The advisor to US president had been on a tour to the labs and to meet the students at the centre on Monday.
While touring the facility, Ivanka took part in one of the experiments with the students. She tested the nicotine content of “vape juice” used in electronic cigarettes while wearing a pristine white lab coat, latex gloves and safety goggles. “I can’t promise that I’ll get this right, but at least we’ll look the part, right?” Business Insider reported Ms Trump as saying.

However, her picture as a scientist did not go well with the Twitter users and they made a good amount of jokes.

When some pointed out to her saying, she was trying to do some cosplay, the other said as if Ivanka was gearing up for Halloween practice.
Hey @IvankaTrump it's great that you like to cosplay as a scientist on Instagram but some of us are an #ActualLivingScientist. Tell us about what you're doing in this picture. I'm making a battery. #ILookLikeAnEngineer pic.twitter.com/fW5CFxLYAF

This person gave Ivanka some ‘how to handle equipment’ lessons in detail.
your lab coat and your gloves are both the wrong size, your gloves aren't tucked, your hair is loose in an environment with moving machinery and burners and you're holding a pour off at mouth level without any kind of a face shield, nice going science genius pic.twitter.com/PV4W97ejAL

And this one, made fun of Ivanka’s husband Jared Kushner, who is also the Senior Advisor to Donald Trump.
I imagine that as she did this she softly whispered to herself, “Science.” pic.twitter.com/h501KJ1erh

Ivanka was attending the lab on official presidential business. She met students at a roundtable discussion about education and job creation, before posting numerous photos from the event to her Instagram account and Twitter.
