Ivanka Trump claims she went through a punk phase in the 1990s, but folks online don’t believe it.
President Donald Trump’s daughter and adviser made the comment in her mother Ivana Trump’s new book, “Raising Trump.” Ivanka also said she was “really into Nirvana” and cried “inconsolably” for 24 hours when the group’s frontman, Kurt Cobain, died in 1994.
In an excerpt obtained by New York Magazine, Ivanka recounted dying her hair blue and owning a wardrobe full of ripped corduroy jeans and flannel shirts.
After the news broke, tweeters imagined what Ivanka would have looked like as a punk. They also questioned her punk credentials and noted how Nirvana was actually considered more grunge:

Ivanka Trump is punk af. There's nothing more anti-establishment and nonconforming than flirtatiously sitting on your dads lap as a teen. pic.twitter.com/bti2ksGX3F— Scare-ica Steiner (@SendARavenPlz) October 17, 2017
I didn't realise how punk AF Ivanka was back in the day. pic.twitter.com/izwEYVn2cN— Rad Wolf Bar Mitzvah (@emosewAcaMdaR) October 17, 2017

Punk as in Ashton Kutcher's show punk'd where you tricked everyone into thinking you were a caring human being? Cool cool— Oona Cassidy (@OonaCassidy) October 17, 2017
