Ivanka Trump's "Why I disagree with my dad" profile is driving people crazy

A weird premise. Unnamed, unverified sources. Yep, this Us Weekly profile of Ivanka Trump is trolling

Ivanka Trump graced the cover of this week's Us Weekly, but not with the headline many expected. Under the first daughter's coy smile was the headline, "Ivanka Takes a Stand: Why I Disagree with my Dad."

The article focused on the ways that Ivanka chooses her battles with her father, how she gets her voice heard on issues that are important to her, and how frustrated she is, just like the rest of us, with the president's short temper — but, as Fortune noted, didn't include an interview with her.

Of course, the people of the internet saw right through the daughter-in-chief's facade, and have come up with a few alternative headlines.

Twitter has been busy firing back at Trump who, until recently, liberals felt would be their voice of reason in the White House. The headline has been garnering eye-rolls left and right, and people all over asking the same question: "Really, Ivanka?"

And of course, Twitter did what it does best, and turned the "Why I Disagree with my Dad" headline into a delightful meme, featuring famous TV kids and their famously bad TV dads. People have been drawing inspiration from shows and movies like "Game of Thrones", "Get Out," "Star Wars" and more.

Aside from memes and jokes, some people have pointed out a bigger issue than the headline. As far as the magazine's cover stories go, Ariana Grande and her emotional Manchester tribute concert seem to have taken second seat to her confession.

People were also quick to point out Us Weekly, which was formerly running with a "save Melania" angle, was recently purchased by pro-Trump media organization American Media Inc., which publishes The National Enquirer.

No word yet from Ivanka on the new meme.
