Maybe Melania was trying to send a secret message to her idiot husband. Or maybe we’re all just living in a really bad episode of the Twilight Zone.
On Wednesday, First Lady Melania Trump gave a speech at the United Nations that could best be described as irony on steroids. She spoke to a room full of world leaders and told them that they need to start teaching “moral conscience” by example. And she insisted that they need to condemn bullying.
“We must teach each child that they are at the core of the kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership, which can only be taught by our own example. By our own example, we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they inherit.”
Really Melania? You mean like the example your husband is setting for the children every day? That kind of example?
“We must remember that they are watching and listening, so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life’s ethical lessons along the way. As adults we are not merely responsible, we are accountable. I hope you will join me in recommitting ourselves to teaching the next generation to lead and honor the golden rule, do unto others as you would have do unto you. Which is paramount in today’s society, and my focus as first lady. It reminds our generation’s moral imperative to take responsibility for what our children learn.”
I can’t even type her words with a straight face. If these words came from Michelle Obama or Laura Bush they would likely be seen as admirable. But come on. These words are coming from the wife of Donald Trump.
What sort of ethical lessons is her husband teaching the children of the world? She’s talking about a moral imperative mere days after her husband, the President of the United States, tweeted out a GIF of himself knocking Hillary Clinton to the ground by attacking her with a golf ball. Her words are laughable.
To stand there and lecture other leaders about taking responsibility for their actions and setting good examples for children is beyond hypocritical. Her speech on Wednesday was just another scam from this administration. Sorry, but we’ve seen and heard far too much bullshit from her husband to take her words seriously.
