Twitter can't handle Republican Senator's 'failed hug' with Ivanka Trump

Washington [U.S.A], June 20 (ANI): Republican Senator Marco Rubio opened a Twitter 'investigation' on Tuesday afternoon, after his meeting with U.S. President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump the same day went viral on twitter.
A photograph of the two in an awkward attempt to embrace was posted on twitter, following which the U.S. senator was trolled by twitteratis.

Left in indignation by the twitter burst, Rubio in an act of defiance posted several photographs on twitter.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Just left Intel comm & informed meeting 2day with <a href="https://twitter.com/IvankaTrump">@IvankaTrump</a> blowing up twitter over alleged failed hug!

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
A few minutes later, Rubio expressed in a tweet that he has his own evidence to call the hug 'unattempted' and his team is seeking evidence for the same.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">We believe we have our own unclassified photographic evidence that will shed greater details on this incident.</p>&mdash; Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) <a href="https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/877273421088010241">June 20, 2017</a></blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
He posted pictures which provided an insight to the failed hug.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">New photo emerges providing more insight into alleged failed hug.

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
In his last tweet, Rubio concluded the case by asserting that based on his recollection of the incident, no hug was attempted.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Based on review of evidence & my own recollection, have concluded no hug was even attempted & press covfefe of alleged failed hug is false</p>&mdash; Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) <a href="https://twitter.com/marcorubio/status/877295286389010432">June 20, 2017</a></blockquote>
<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>
Contradicting Rubio's tweets, Ivanka confirmed that there was a hug attempted.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Anonymous sources say <a href="https://twitter.com/marcorubio">@marcorubio</a> planned the alleged failed hug.

Earlier on Tuesday, Ivanka Trump was at the Capitol Hill to meet Rubio and other law makers to discuss "pro-family" tax reforms.
According to CNN, Rubio said that Ivanka had expressed in different elements which should be present in pro-family tax reform.
He said, "We wanted her and the White House to be exposed to individual members who have been working on pieces that I think can be part of that reform."
The President's daughter has been supporting the cause since 2015. (ANI)
