Be worst

She really doesn’t care.

Her cause is anti-bullying, which is making the first lady’s silence deafening.

Melania Trump has yet to speak out in the wake of President Donald Trump’s mocking tweet directed at 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg, in which he told the teenager to “work on her anger management” and “chill” out.

This is 72-year-old millionaire president of the US using his Twitter account to jeer at a teenage girl. It doesn’t get much more “bully” than that.

Just last Wednesday, Melania Trump tweeted a defense of her own child, whose name was referenced in a pun by an impeachment inquiry witness.

“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,” Melania Trump tweeted after Karlan, a law professor, mentioned Barron Trump during impeachment hearings on Capitol Hill. Karlan later apologized for making reference to the youngest Trump child’s name.

But when huge powerful rich man Donald Trump does it it’s perfectly fine.

Stephanie Grisham, who serves as top communication aide for both the first lady and the President, defended the first lady’s silence in a statement on Friday.

“BeBest is the First Lady’s initiative, and she will continue to use it to do all she can to help children. It is no secret that the President and First Lady often communicate differently — as most married couples do. Their son is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches. He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy,” Grisham said.

Oh, I see, so it’s being an activist that makes it ok for huge powerful rich man to tweet his bullying of her to his millions of followers, only about half of whom are fake.

For the past 24 hours, Twitter has been filled with memes and statements mocking the first lady’s Be Best platform in light of the bullying of a child demonstrated by the President, and the first lady’s ongoing silence on the matter.

On Thursday night, former first lady Michelle Obama tweeted support to Thunberg: “@gretathunberg don’t let anyone dim your light. Like the girls I’ve met in Vietnam and all over the world, you have so much to offer us all. Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on.”

Ignore the doubters and the rich powerful famous orange male bullies.
