President Donald Trump's daughter Tiffany reunited with her clique of Instagram-famous friends over the weekend.
Tiffany Trump was not allowed to hang out with her group of friends during her father's presidential campaign, a New York Times reporter says. Instead, she spent the past two years trying to emphasize her ties to her politically connected family.
However, her return to friendship with the "Rich Kids of Instagram" shows that neither she nor the rest of her family members — including the president — can escape their roots.
Tiffany Trump has returned to her pack of Instagram-famous friends after two years spent attempting to promote her family-centric political credentials.
Before her father was elected president, Tiffany Trump was mostly known for her connections with a group of young socialites called the "Rich Kids of Instagram."
The weekend was heavily documented — unsurprising for the social-media-savvy group.
Attendees included EJ Johnson, the son of Magic Johnson who stars on E!'s reality show "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills," and Abigail Breslin, the actress best known for her role in "Little Miss Sunshine" who's another Snap Pack regular.
PC Peterson, a star of Bravo's reality show "NYC Prep," had an impromptu wedding with Quentin Esme Brown over the weekend. Trump was the flower girl.
"P.S. We have never had sex," Brown wrote in her Instagram caption. "It's pure friendship."
The party is nothing out of the ordinary for a wealthy 24-year-old who has befriended social-media celebrities. But the decadence emphasizes the gap between the first family and the average American — as well as past presidents.
While President Donald Trump recently called a new book about his White House as "tabloid fiction," his family has for decades been making tabloid headlines.
Meanwhile, the Trump family has long been mixing with socialites, millionaires, and celebrities. Donald Trump's bombastic and sometimes crude style made him a perfect fit for New York tabloid headlines. In many ways, this prominence helped him launch his presidential campaign.

Offensive and controversial comments are the bread and butter of tabloids, where scandals often reign supreme. However, such drama is typically less welcome in the White House.

Of course, Trump's White House is far from typical. The administration's dramatic statements, tweets, and reported internal conflict often feel like a natural continuation of the president's tabloid past.
For example, the president this year has slammed Steve Bannon, his former chief strategist who was quoted extensively in Michael Wolff's book "Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House."
