Once upon a time, Ivanka Trump and Marco Rubio found themselves in the same room, and were forced to hug. Actually, make that "hug." The pair partook in what is best described as a partial body slam, in which Rubio's attempt to hug the First Daughter was met with a solid "nope."

The hug fail obviously went viral, and—in an attempt to be "cool" and "funny" and "in on it"—Rubio and Ivanka hit Twitter.
Based on review of evidence & my own recollection, have concluded no hug was even attempted & press covfefe of alleged failed hug is falseJune 20, 2017

Fake news! Marco is an excellent hugger... https://t.co/Dk7XXRQlX8June 20, 2017
Anonymous sources say @marcorubio planned the alleged failed hug. I have no comment (but I would have hugged him anyway! 🤗) https://t.co/TChrqWsL4DJune 20, 2017
Er...LOL? Or wait, actually Chrissy Teigen says it better:
Not so shockingly, the rest of Twitter (like Chrissy) was not here for Ivanka and Marco's attempt at humor.
Multiple sources say you're both terrible people and you should stop fucking up our country.June 20, 2017
