President Donald Trump was the first to tweet out a message on this Memorial Day, much to the shock and disgust of citizens everywhere. Instead of honoring the sacrifice made by families who’ve lost loved ones in battle the former reality TV personality wished grieving families a “happy” Memorial Day.
Unlike her husband, the First Lady tends to consistently make less ignorant comments. The tweet, which some speculate was written and posted by a staff member.
The First Lady’s official Twitter account shared a eloquent message of thanks, if not just a hodgepodge of the messages we’ve all heard before on Memorial Day. The message, no matter how “common”, was respectful and kind. Kind words don’t mean a lot to those who are suffering under her husband’s administration.
You can see Melania’s tweet below:
On #MemorialDay we honor the many Americans who laid down their lives for our great country. As one nation under God, we come together to remember that freedom isn’t free. Thank you to all the service members & their families who sacrifice so much to keep us safe. ?? pic.twitter.com/H6yhNQXyPg

The president’s Memorial Day morning tweet was a train wreck. After wishing military families a “happy” Memorial Day Trump took the opportunity to feed his ever hungering ego by attempting to promote himself. For a man that has all the grace of a rhino it’s never hard to decipher his overly simplified Twitter “statements.”
You can see the Tweet below:
Happy Memorial Day! Those who died for our great country would be very happy and proud at how well our country is doing today. Best economy in decades, lowest unemployment numbers for Blacks and Hispanics EVER (& women in 18years), rebuilding our Military and so much more. Nice!

The internet wasn’t going to let the First Lady off so quickly. Just because her words weren’t as ridiculously chosen as those used by her husband she was still taken to task for supporting her husband’s disastrous administration. You can read some of the top reactions from Twitter users below:
