It only took a year and a half after becoming First Lady for Melania Trump to reveal her social agenda. Melania is tackling online bullying with a program called “Be Best.” Really? After a year and a half, the best you can come up with is “be best?” Did someone already take “be gooder?” In addition to that, it’s rolled out in a re-packaged pamphlet from the Federal Trade Commission created during the Obama era.
Melania plagiarized a speech from Michelle Obama for her Republican National Convention speech. During her speech presenting the Be Best program, I was shocked she didn’t lift from Whitney Houston and say, “I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.” Hey, it takes a village.
The real crux of Melania’s anti-bullying Be Best campaign is that she’s married to the Be Worst president.
Donald Trump is a bully and Twitter is his favorite outlet to sling his attacks. He’s gone after minorities, women, and anyone else who dare criticizes him, no matter how small the target may be. He has done everything in his power to be as divisive as possible. Take his assault on black athletes in the NFL. And idiots want to give this guy a Nobel.
Trump has especially attacked women. He has a long history of it. He attacked Rosie O’Donnell years ago and called her a pig. During the campaign, he tweeted out a very unflattering photo of Heidi Cruz next to a pic of Melania. He said Megyn Kelly had “blood coming out of her wherever” after she asked him tough questions during a debate. He criticized fellow GOP candidate Carly Fiorina’s face. He called Alicia Machado disgusting and criticized her for gaining weight after she won his Miss Universe pageant. He said Hillary Clinton’s looks didn’t impress him. He continues to call Senator Elizabeth Warren “Pocahontas.” He’s accused his accusers of not being attractive enough to sexually assault. He conducted a tweetstorm about Mika Brzezinski’s face because she’s not nice to him on Morning Joe. Let’s not forget he also endorsed a pedophile with the excuse, “he denies it.”
Throughout each of these attacks, Melania has either remained silent or defended his bullying.
Would Melania allow her son Barron to insult women the way his father does? That would be the equivalent of Michelle Obama telling us to feed our children carrots and broccoli while pumping Sasha and Malia full of Ho Hos and Ding Dongs.
Why should anyone listen to Melania Trump lecture about online bullying when her 71-year-old husband is verbally assaulting people with the creativity of an illiterate snail darter?
Melania’s initiative runs counter to Trump’s personal, professional, and public agenda which is shared by his entire administration. On the day of her Be Best ceremony where she said “Children deserve every opportunity to enjoy their innocence,” Attorney General Jeff Sessions was giddy in announcing ICE would be separating children from their parents and Donald was requesting funding cuts to children’s healthcare insurance. Children deserve the opportunity to enjoy their innocence unless they’re brown or poor.
Melania advocates Be Best while Donald exhibits Be An Asshole.
