Melania Trump and Greta Thunberg

#BeBest Trends As Twitter Calls On Melania To Tell Trump To Stop Cyber-Bullying Greta Thunberg

People are once again mocking Melania Trump’s #BeBest campaign after Donald Trump tweeted out an attack on youth climate activist Greta Thunberg. Donald had a problem with Thunberg being named TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year, calling it “ridiculous” and claiming that the teen needs to “work on her Anger Management [sic] problem.”

His campaign later posted a photo of his head photoshopped onto Thunberg’s body for reasons no one could fully understand no matter how hard they tried. The best explanation is that this photoshopping of his head onto various people’s bodies is a bizarre manifestation of Trump’s intense jealousy and insecurity problems, but really it’s not worth analyzing that deeply.

What is worth our time is to point out that the First Lady is supposed to be an advocate against online bullying with her #BeBest campaign, and yet remains silent when her husband acts like a 73-year-old Mean Girl, bullying an actual teenage girl.

The tweet seems especially hypocritical after Melania lambasted impeachment witness and Stanford Law professor Pam Karlan for referencing Barron Trump during her testimony. The dig didn’t attack the 13-year-old, but apparently even mentioning his name was over the line for a woman married to the world’s biggest bully.

“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it,” she said in a tweet.

Professor Karlan apologized for her mention of Barron, but Donald Trump will almost certainly not apologize for attacking Thunberg.

For all these reasons, Twitter users can’t stop pointing out the #BeBest hypocrisy.

It’s really getting old at this point.
