Ivanka Trump and Marco Rubio followed their awkward hug attempt with some very awkward jokes

The "press covfefe" is false, Rubio says.

Ivanka Trump and Sen. Marco Rubio’s extremely awkward hug yesterday just keeps on getting, well, more awkward.

Both Rubio and Trump took to Twitter Tuesday afternoon (along with Ivanka’s younger brother, Donald Trump Jr.) to joke about the encounter pretty extensively.

Ivanka ventured down the "fake news" path, poking fun at Rubio’s tweets about an "investigation" into his failed hug. Apparently, he’s an excellent hugger, and according to anonymous sources, Rubio actually planned the failed hug that absolutely lit up the internet.

You know, just having some fun using her father’s favorite buzzwords.

Anonymous sources say @marcorubio planned the alleged failed hug. I have no comment (but I would have hugged him anyway! ?) https://t.co/TChrqWsL4D

Ivanka’s brother Donald Trump Jr. got in on the fun, too. Apparently, he thinks we could use more hugs in politics … even when they make us cringe.

However, despite the attempts to make light of a heavily covered, very important hug, the internet wasn’t impressed.

A lot of people got pretty serious, actually, complaining about the jokes being made online.

There were, however, plenty of lighthearted jokes in response to the tweets, as people riffed on the ongoing Russia investigation, and made more jokes about how uncomfortable the hug looked.

Even Chrissy Teigen got in on the fun, because is it really a Twitter moment if Chrissy isn’t involved somehow?

Even though the internet can’t get past it, Rubio says no hug happened based on review. Guess the fake news got to everyone once again.
