Ivanka Trump went on a tour of the Johnson Space Center on Thursday, where she had an unexpected phone conversation with a Russian cosmonaut aboard the International Space Station.
Oleg Artemyev, who was on the other end of the line, didn't hesitate to seize the moment to compliment the US first daughter, visibly making her blush:
"I think you are a very kind and nice person. When I see you on the TV channel and the news, my mood improves and rises," he said.
Smiling and laughing, Ivanka warmly thanked the cosmonaut: “Well, that’s very kind of you to say, thank you very much! Thank you, Oleg!”
Artemyev's passionate admiration for Ivanka was met with mixed reactions on social media; while some shared his opinion…

We need more empowered women! says the left and when they get one they hate her because she doesn't think like a rabid feminist and she's better looking than 99.9% of left-wingers haha— Northern knuckle dragger (@AngolCentipede) 21 сентября 2018 г.
…others were not as impressed by president Trump's daughter:
