People continue to be unimpressed by Melania Trump’s #BeBest campaign to promote the well-being of children online and stop cyber-bullying as her husband continues to tweet out nasty things about his political opponents.
The first lady was giving a speech at the Drug Enforcement Administration headquarters Monday to kick off Red Ribbon Week and used the opportunity to promote her anti-bullying campaign.
“Whether it is showing a simple act of kindness, providing care where there is a need or teaching something valuable, ‘Be Bes’’ promotes the positive actions happening in our communities and around the globe, and helps children understand what it means to live healthy lives,” she added.
Melania claims that her campaign also works to fight against the nation’s opioid overdose crisis. However, there is no evidence that her traveling and speech-giving and photo ops with children have actually produced any concrete results other than allowing her to be away from her husband.
That, and giving people an opportunity to point out the hypocrisy of a woman going around promoting an anti-bullying campaign while her husband is Donald Trump.
So this administration's policy is to separate children from their families and lock them in cages. Great for child development. https://t.co/2wcXksZ1uj— Sr. Simone Campbell (@sr_simone) October 8, 2019
.@FLOTUS, girl, please start by helping your husband be a good person. If that’s too heavy a lift, then just being a normal human being will do. His #BeWorst attitude + language is influencing future generations.— Ana Navarro-Cárdenas (@ananavarro) October 7, 2019
Oh, one more thing to tell you: Obama was born in the USA.🇺🇸 https://t.co/vZhGJsVr0A
If @FLOTUS was sincerely interested in helping future generations she wouldn’t support @realDonaldTrump as he pollutes the planet, adds a trillion dollars a year to the national debt, and cuts funding for programs that feed hungry children so he and his elite pals can do less. https://t.co/NSorgFqwwR— Col.

Why continue to promote this platform when her literal husband - the President - doesn't adhere to any of her "policies"???— Alex Peterson (@alexpABC27) October 7, 2019
News outlets need to make a choice: are they putting her words into context or are they just giving her carte blanche to spread a faux message? https://t.co/H4eYxzee5b
.@FLOTUS...just stop. Please stop. You’re an insult to America with this duplicitous crap. The only thing you’re #BeBest at is turning a blind eye to the horrific injustices perpetrated on children by your sociopath husband. Shame on you... #Melania #Trump https://t.co/jTnSm7HxPD— Andy Ostroy (@AndyOstroy) October 8, 2019
Excuse me ma’am but denying and doing nothing about climate change is already harming this generation and may just wipe out the next. Tearing children from their families and caging harms kids now. Have you apologized to the Obamas for birtherism and stealing Michelle’s speech?

Not for nothing, but #BeBest has helped nobody and the whole idea is quite rich coming from the Birther bride of an absolute bigoted bully. So for those reasons and many more you can shove this useless campaign up your ass.

Everything to help the next generation except helping to fix climate change, Medicare, Medicaid, housing, student debt, the minimum wage, or actually caring about social media bullying by the president.

Maybe it would be better to just not talk at all.
