Ivanka Trump, who is only rich and famous because of her father, attacked the Green New Deal's job guarantee.

Leave it to Ivanka Trump to be stunningly tone deaf.

The heiress — who is only relevant because of her father's famous name and perceived wealth — said Americans won't support the jobs guarantee in the Green New Deal because they don't, "want to be given something."

"People want to work for what they get," Ivanka Trump, who has been handed her wealth and status on a silver platter, told Fox News in an interview that aired Monday. "So, I think that this idea of a guaranteed minimum is not something most people want."

Republicans have been working hard to vilify the Green New Deal, making up ridiculous lies about what the plan to address the damaging effects of climate change would do.

But Ivanka Trump took a different route, telling working-class Americans — whose struggles she's never had to endure — what they want.

Maybe an heiress set to inherit her father's wealth, which he inherited via dubious channels from his own father, should sit the conversation on a jobs guarantee out.
