First daughter Ivanka Trump found herself being trolled online after her old tweet misquoting Albert Einstein resurfaced over the weekend.
The tweet, which Trump posted in June 2013, attributed the quote, "If the facts don't fit the theory, change the facts," to the famed scientist.

But one eagle-eyed Twitter user helpfully pointed out to Trump that Einstein never actually said that.
See some of the clever reactions online:
U.S. author Colin Dickey was the first tweeter to bring the post to the internet's attention after sharing the tweet Sunday, commenting: "The fact that Einstein never said any such thing only makes this tweet that much more perfect."

In less than two days, the tweet has gone viral, prompting thousands of others online to share their own misattributed quotes.
One person wrote: "Don't believe everything you read on the internet. - Abraham Lincoln," while another person tweeted: "Diamonds are a girl's best friend, Mahatma Ghandi."
"Don't believe everything you read on the internet". Abraham Lincoln

However, to be fair, Trump is not the first to misattribute the quote to Einstein.
