Ivanka Trump and Marco Rubio Had the World's Most Awkward Hug, Tried to Get in on the Joke, Failed


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.

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.

Lesson learned? Never try to be funny on Twitter.
