First Lady Melania Trump wants us to believe that she’s a virtuous person who cares about issues such as cyber bullying and children’s welfare, and yet she refuses to call her husband out for being a Twitter boor or criticize the administration’s policy of separating immigrant children from their parents and placing them in cages.
So a photo-op Mrs. Trump did recently at the White House left a bad taste in lots of mouths when the First Lady tweeted out support of an executive order dealing with children in foster care:
#BeBest is committed to supporting & advocating for our nation’s child welfare system. Today, I joined @POTUS for the signing of an Executive Order that will provide critical improvements to help protect the well-being & outcomes for children in foster care. pic.twitter.com/znCfW4YTYS

Sounds good, but coming from this particular First Lady at this particular moment in time, it seems more than tad bit absurd, hypocritical, and downright ridiculous.
Fortunately, Twitter users weren’t shy about letting Melania know exactly how they felt about her empty gesture:
How about “protecting the well-being and outcome” of Asian Americans now being targeted because of @realDonaldTrump and his rhetoric…..?

When is Melania Trump going to advocate for the children Donald Trump has in cages?? 😳 #BeBest

Let’s start with the children ripped from their parents and currently living in cages under sub human conditions.
That would be a great start!

Again, 120,000 Americans are dead from COVID-19 and the president ordered testing to be slowed down because big numbers would hurt him politically.
There aren’t words for this level of betrayal. pic.twitter.com/sCdlJMfldf

The world sees first hand how much you care about children. One day very soon, you WILL be brought to account for the part you played.
Even after you divorce him – which you will do.
Like Eva Braun, you stood by him.
And THAT will be your legacy.

If Melania wants to really be helpful, she should go to the White House bunker with her husband and stay there until after the election.
