Twitter Lights Up Melania Trump For Saying Children “Should Be Kept Out Of Politics”

Melania Trump is taking some heat after a recent tweet in which she dramatically declared, “A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics.” She was referring to Stanford law professor and impeachment witness Pamela Karlan’s statement about Trump being able to “name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”

Of course, Melania decided to take this as an attack on the sanctity of children—her child—while conveniently forgetting that, actually, during her husband’s presidency children were very much not kept out of politics.

The outrage was halved across the Internet with other members of the GOP hopping on the ‘shame on you, Karlan,’ train, despite the fact that they know all-too-well that her comments had literally nothing to do with Barron Trump himself. She did actually end up apologizing.

The thing is, if you’re going to talk about respecting children, you need to be aware of the kind of administration you’re involved, and the kind of man you’re married to.

Melania Trump, who spearheads the grammatically-incorrect public awareness campaign, ‘BeBest‘—a nod toward Michelle Obama’s grammatically correct, ‘Be Better’ and an attempt to promote wellbeing for kids—was seen as nothing short of a hypocritical in her Twitter tantrum, considering, well…

Plenty of other Twitter users were also quick to point out the hypocrisy:

In the end, we shouldn’t pay more attention to this drama — whipped up by Trump clan in an attempt to distract us from the fact that Trump has behaved like a sociopathic criminal for the past three years (and since well before that). How else do you describe a man who cages children?
