Ivanka Trump has a message for those who think she and her siblings are embarrassed by their father Donald Trump's Obama rants: Kiss off.

The Trump heiress took to her Twitter page Wednesday to blast a report in the New York Daily News claiming she and her brothers Eric and Donald Jr. staged an "Obama-vention" before the election, asking the Donald to ease up on his public bashing of President Barack Obama.

"I totally respect @realDonaldTrump's opinions & right to articulate his views, which is what I would have told @nydailynews if they'd call me to fact check their false story," she tweeted.

The real estate mogul has taken a lot of heat and become fodder for late-night comedians thanks to repeated diatribes throughout this last presidential election cycle—be it demanding the commander in chief produce his birth certificate to prove his citizenship, constantly slamming Obama on Twitter or his "bombshell" offer to donate $5 million to charity if the prez produces his passport and college records.

Per the paper, the level of vitriol became bad enough that his heirs decided to collectively confront him and ask him to turn down the criticism a notch for the sake of the Trump name.

Ivanka wasn't the only one to lash out at the Daily News over the story. Donald Trump Jr. also expressed bewilderment. "This article is nonsense, never happened, but what's news anymore if u can't make it up?" he tweeted in response.
