Third Lady Melania Trump on Monday announced on Twitter that her project will now have new Be Best ambassadors to help “improve the lives of children.” However, her own initiative has failed to even reach her husband, the biggest bully in the U.S. The cruelty of the Trump administration’s separation of immigrant families has been widely panned. Children that are housed in the concentration camps aren’t even given soap or toothbrushes.
The Associated Press reported that a guard handed a 2-year-old with urine-soaked pants, no diaper, and a mucus-smeared shirt over to three girls age 10 to 15, to care for the clingy toddler. Children are taking care of toddlers under deplorable surroundings.
A White House press release that Melanie tweeted out ironically says that she is expanding her signature Be Best initiative with 21 ambassadors from agencies within the administration “who will focus on resources and opportunities to help make a difference in the lives of children.”
Looking forward to collaborating with all of our #BeBest Ambassadors. Delighted to be working alongside so many people both inside and outside of government to better the lives of children everywhere!https://t.co/VXxwgg6DFz

The Internet was not amused.
For openers, I hope you start by helping the children that are kept
in poorly maintained camps by our govt.

The empty words are so at odds with the current environment in the U.S. that I had to look at the date/time stamp on this.

She’s trolling, right?

Is this White House seriously sending out this “be best” bs while children are being tortured? If @FLOTUS wants to help children face challenges, get them the f*ck out of these torture chambers!

Holy cow! She can’t be this tone deaf.

Wow. “Better the lives of children…” Just, OMG.

The tone-deaf First Lady must be trolling us. The problem is, though, that there’s a serious situation going on at the Southern border.
900 people in a space made for only 125. The children’s facility has lice breakouts & haven’t been able to wash their hands since they’ve been there. No access to adequate medical care, food or water. Are we really quibbling over calling these concentration camps? pic.twitter.com/WLe1EYR9V5

An 8-year-old was seen taking care of a very small 4-year-old with matted hair and couldn’t convince the little one to take a shower.
“In my 22 years of doing visits with children in detention, I have never heard of this level of inhumanity,” said Holly Cooper, who co-directs the University of California, Davis’ Immigration Law Clinic and represents detained youth, according to the AP.
Be Best, Melanie, and stand up to your insufferably narcissistic husband and tell that jerkwad that little kids are suffering because of him.
