First Lady Melania Trump wants us all to know that she’s an advocate for children, and she made sure of publicizing that on her husband’s favorite social media site, Twitter, this week:

First of all, exactly what “work” is she referring to? Her online safety campaign is supposed to be so damn important to her, but she refuses to tell her husband to practice what she’s preaching. Instead, he attacks everyone and spreads vicious lies on Twitter.
Fighting opioid abuse? How is Melania doing that? By visiting a halfway house for addicts once a year? Wow! What a great contribution.
But it was her mention of children that set off the biggest firestorm online, where she was reminded that her husband separated immigrant children from their parents and incarcerated them in modern-day internment camps:
Except for the brown ones at the border, right? Those, we cage. #BeBest

Keep children in the best cages?

Oh and btw there seem to be 1000s of kids at the border your husband put in camps. Check on their well-being? Thx!

Locking them up in cages is how you “support the well-being of children”? You should consider a new platform.

Well where is the fight for children dying in ICE custody?

Please give 3 examples of what work you’ve done. I’ll wait…

That’s how I always fight an opioid crisis…wearing designer clothes in a model pose. I’ve cured many with this approach. 🙄
