Melania Trump Triggers The Wrath Of The Internet After Bragging About ‘Helping Children Everywhere’
First lady Melania Trump on Monday said that she was “delighted” to be working to “better the lives of children everywhere” and Twitter let her have it.
While talking about her “Be Best” campaign, Trump said she plans to name 21 “ambassadors” from key agencies in the administration to further her “goal of educating children and parents about the issues they face, and promoting programs and services.”
Her comments come as the nation reels from news about shocking and horrifying treatment of migrant children at U.S. detention facilities.
Last week, the Trump administration argued in court that it should not be required to provide detained immigrant children with soap, toothbrushes — or even beds.
Four seriously ill babies and toddlers were rushed to the hospital from one of the facilities a few days ago, and immigration attorneys have said that detained children were wearing filthy clothes, sleeping on concrete floors and had little to eat.
Stunned critics on Twitter thought Trump might want to start by focusing her concern on these kids:
Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!https://t.co/VXxwgg6DFz

Definition of a Ridiculous Farce: While her husband's administration mandates the inhumane treatment for migrant children on the U.S.'s southern border, @FLOTUS Melania Trump claims she is working to better the lives of children EVERYWHERE! pic.twitter.com/c7IvWYuBm0

I hear it improves children’s lives not to be held in concentration camps.

She’s not tone deaf. She knows exactly what she is doing. She is trolling all of us. It’s a game for her.

This is a level of blatant hubris that will go down in history.
"to better the lives of children everywhere."
There is a special place hell for the robot's handlers. I hope it is as hot and miserable there as it is for the children on the border.

#BeBest sounds like something said in thickly accented broken English. Which, of course, it was.

The tone deafness and sociopathic behavior from everyone in this administration is staggering sometimes.
