Ever since Donald Trump illegitimately became President of the United States, he’s continued to find new ways to embarrass himself and the nation. Ever since Melania Trump became First Lady, she’s continued to find her own ways to embarrass herself and the nation. The two of them hit the daily double today.
Donald Trump jealously decided he couldn’t handle the fact that teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg was named the Time Magazine Person of the Year this week, and so this morning he launched a vicious attack on her. That’s right, the so-called President of the United States carried out a cyberbullying attack against a sixteen year old girl.
Melania Trump has spent her time in the White House consistently campaigning against cyberbullying. She keeps promoting a ridiculously named “Be Best” campaign to that effect. She also lashed out at an impeachment witness several days ago for daring to even mention the name of her son Barron in passing. So what did Melania do in response to her husband’s psychotic cyberbullying incident today?
Well, nothing. Melania Trump didn’t even bother tweeting anything today. She’ll generically claim to oppose cyberbullying in any form. She’ll go on the warpath in response to a non-attack against her own teenage son. But when Donald Trump went after a teenage kid today, Melania made a point of not tweeting a darned thing – because she’s awful.
