President Trump may be decrying Nordstrom’s decision to drop his daughter Ivanka’s clothing line from their stores, but Chelsea Handler is cheering them on.

In a picture shared to Facebook, Handler is joined by two companions, holding Nordstrom bags outside the White House fence.

“Took my gay and Muslim friend to Nordstrom and then to the White House to pay our respects,” she wrote in the caption.

Shortly before Handler shared the photo, White House adviser Kellyanne Conway landed in hot water for her comment on Nordstrom’s decision.

“Go buy Ivanka’s stuff,” Conway told Fox & Friends in an appearance from a White House briefing room.

While some ethics experts have condemned the president’s bashing of Nordstrom after the store announced last week it would not sell this season’s Ivanka Trump merchandise, several commenters on Handler’s picture think she’s the real villain. 

“You guys all say how bullying is wrong and it’s not what you stand for, but yet all you and numerous other celebrities have done nothing but bully people! You are the biggest hypocrites ever!” reads one of the top comments.

As another commenter wrote, “So you spent a lot of money in the US which will secure jobs here; therefore, proving that the President’s plan is working. Strong work.”

Six days after Nordstrom announced they were dropping Ivanka’s line, Trump responded with an angry tweet.

Nordstrom said in a statement Wednesday that their decision was based on falling sales.

“To reiterate what we’ve already shared when asked, we made this decision based on performance,” Nordstrom said. “Over the past year, and particularly in the last half of 2016, sales of the brand have steadily declined to the point where it didn’t make good business sense for us to continue with the line for now.”
