Melania is getting attacked for her anti-bullying speech that describes Donald Trump perfectly
While you'd expect the 45th President of the United States to make headlines, you wouldn't expect him to dominate them with reports of his misguided thumb-war against the world writ large - a pursuit which hilariously culminated in the now-infamous term "covfefe".
As I have often joked: while little is known about Donald Trump's exercise routine, it's safe to say that his thumbs have gotten a good workout since the 2016 Presidential election. And Donald Trump's family haven't made it out of the spotlight either - especially, his wife - the current First Lady of the United States, Melania Trump.
On Monday, Melania gave a speech to open a federal conference on cyberbullying, hosted in Rockland, Maryland. While she was promoting her anti-cyberbulling initiative, Be Best, which encourages children to be their "best" when they're browsing the web, the First Lady admitted that children are often more aware of the "benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults."
Need some aloe for that burn, President Trump?
"In today's global society, social media is an inevitable part of our children's daily lives," Melania said at the cyberbullying summit. "It can be used in many positive ways, but can also be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly. This is why Be Best chooses to focus on the importance of teaching our next generation how to conduct themselves safely and in a positive manner in an online setting."
At the same time, the President of America was active on Twitter, posting incendiary remarks about John Brennan. While he was calling Brennan a "hack" and "the worst CIA Director in our country's history", panelists at the summit - including his wife - were discussing how adults must be "good digital role models" for juveniles.
"I hope John Brennan, the worst CIA Director in our country’s history, brings a lawsuit. It will then be very easy to get all of his records, texts, emails and documents to show not only the poor job he did, but how he was involved with the Mueller Rigged Witch Hunt. He won’t sue!" Trump's tweet read.
The irony was not lost on the people of the internet.
"First Lady Melania Trump just took a swipe at President Trump. Let’s face it. Most children are more aware of the benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults. Instead of calling your husband out indirectly, how about doing something meaningful and standing up to him?" one social media user wrote, while another jested "First Lady Melania Trump speaking out against cyberbullying is like Colonel Sanders' wife speaking out against fried chicken."
Other individuals took aim at the First Lady herself, writing "Melania Trump is speaking on cyber-bullying today, so I'm really looking forward to hearing what Michelle Obama has said about it."
"I can''t decide if Melania's cyber-bullying campaign is just a massive troll on her husband or if she is truly unaware of all of the context here," a fourth individual asserted.
