No one is buying Ivanka Trump's "condemnation" of white supremacy.

Maybe it's because she has not spoken out against her father's controversial and insensitive comments. Maybe it's because Ivanka is the adviser to the President of the United States. Though she has admitted that she doesn't get involved in politics, she still has a hand in the White House.

Just days after the violent white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, Donald Trump refused to condemn white nationalism and neo-Nazi beliefs. He also claimed that there were "many sides" to the hate and domestic terrorist attacks that took place.

"We ALL must be untied & condemn all that hate stands for," Trump tweeted. "There is no place for this kind of violence in America. Lets come together as one! [SIC]"

His daughter Ivanka Trump, a practicing Orthodox Jew, released her own statement via Twitter.

"There should be no place in society for racism, white supremacy and neo-nazis. We must all come together as Americans – and be one country UNITED. #Charlottesville," she wrote.

In her first statement, Ivanka tried to come across as her liberal self. She is a registered Democrat in New York City. In the second statement, she tried to mimic her father's previous statements. It didn't take Twitter too long to slam Ivanka for her comments. Some pointed out that Ivanka herself is a Jewish woman who stays quiet about her father's rhetoric.

Others basically called her out for going against her own father. Some blame her for bringing white nationalists to the White House. Other Twitter users just wanted to remind Ivanka who her father is. Even Helen Mirren went after Ivanka. In the September issue of Allure, the 72-year-old actress said that the first daughter "talks a good game."

"[Ivanka] talks a good game, but there's no substance," Mirren said. "Her book is so ignorant about how the majority of women live, talking about 'Make time for yourself to have a massage.' Puh-lease. [Trump] just said and did whatever it took to get what he desired. That is quite terrifying, because it means there's a lack of morality there and a lack of conscientiousness. It's a bit like watching a car crash. There is a sort of mesmerizing horror – it's why we love horror films."

As for the president's wife, Melania, she hopes that she will use her new position she's in to "take [Trump] down." Helen seems hopeful that Melania has another side to herself.

"You look at old Mel there, and she is one of the most powerful women in the world because she could take him down," Mirren continued. "I'm Eastern European, you know; [we've] got those dark souls. [Melania's] dark Slovenian soul is about to come out."

President Trump went back in front of the cameras at the White House on Monday to name the groups, "KKK, neo-Nazis and white supremacists" associated with the violence in Virginia. He seems like he was talked into making the statement. He also left the press conference abruptly and refused to take questions from reporters, according to The Mercury News.

Ivanka Trump is no stranger to criticism. She often posts photos of herself at the White House or at a Trump administration function. She also was slammed on Twitter for calling herself an ally of LGBTQ rights during Pride Month in June. But, she remained silent when her father announced in July that he wanted to ban transgender people from serving in the military.
