Saturday was World Mental Health Day, which is meant to raise awareness of issues such as depression, bipolar disorder, and, schizophrenia.
First Lady Melania Trump decided to take part in the day by sending out a tweet that might have been well-intentioned but struck a lot of people as incredibly hypocritical:
On this #Worldmentalhealthday let’s make it a priority to take care of our mind, body & spirit. Seek out the tools needed to unleash your full potential. Connect with loved ones & ask for help if you are struggling.
— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) October 10, 2020
Granted, the tweet itself is not really the problem, but the facts around it most certainly are. After all, this woman she’s married to a man who constantly exhibits questionable mental fitness. When he’s not excoriating people on Twitter, Donald Trump often mocks anyone who might be suffering from any illness or disability:
Melania’s tweet drew heavy criticism from others on social media, most of whom reminded her just how unstable her spouse certainly appears to be:
Please connect with your hubby – he’s not okay. At least take his electronic devices away from him before he embarrasses our country even more. Dang, I can’t wait to have a real president & first lady.

How ironic it’s National Mental Health Day and your husband is holding a reception for 2,000 people and we don’t even know he’s still positive for Covid and still shedding the deadly virus. Mental health is an issue with your husband. We are all in danger bc of him. 212,000 dead.

Your husband is the reason for everyone’s anxiety

You must be so proud when your husband calls people crazy, calls into question their mental health, mocking those with conditions…………………..so very proud

You may want to have a chat with your husband. If he refuses to seek help, stage an intervention.

Coming from you this is SO “THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE”

Your husband is the biggest source of my anxiety and fear and poor mental health. Please tell him to stop lying and stop encouraging terrible hatred to run rampant. This is me, reaching out and asking for help. For the love of our collective mental health #BidenHarris2020

Nice try, Melania, but as we’ve seen repeatedly over the past four years, neither you or your husband seem to have a conscience or a soul. Don’t be surprised when we tell you how full of shit you are; we’re just speaking the truth.
