There is no bigger snowflake in the country than President Donald Trump. For some reason, he believes that his entire family should be off-limits despite his endless attacks on everyone else. After his wife went missing for nearly a month, reporters noted how odd it was that she hadn’t been seen. Trump decided to turn internet criticism into a rant about “fake news” although no legitimate news outlet mentioned any of the points he was so furious about in his tweets.
Trump seems to think that any criticism of his family is unfair. However, the president who loves Fox News and praised them as being the most “accurate” news source should have already shown him what real criticism on a fake news network really looks like for a first lady. Below are just a few statements made about Michelle Obama that have run on Fox News both during and after her time in the White House.
‘Isn’t Michelle Obama adorable? She actually thinks she is a typical woman in the United States, and that she can speak for all of us.’ October 11, 2017
‘How well could she be eating? She needs to drop a few. Let’s be honest. We’re taking nutrition advice from who? Well, no let’s be honest, like there’s no french fries happening. Like that’s all kale and carrots. I don’t buy it.’ August 13, 2014
‘The Western world is under constant threat from Islamic jihadists, but your first lady, Michelle Obama, is busy making a rap music video about going to college.’ Sean Hannity, 2015
It is not a normal occurrence for a first lady to refrain from appearing publicly for nearly a month, especially after her rollout of her “Be Best” initiative, which took more than a year to announce. To call the criticism “unfair” shows that Trump has one standard when anyone else is criticized and another entirely when it’s his own family that draws that ire.
None of that ire, however, came from the outlets Trump typically calls the “fake news media.” It came from Twitter and other social media forums, which can be cruel and, yes, vicious. If anyone knows what that looks like, it should be Donald Trump.
Twitter was not impressed with Trump’s complaints. See some of their comments below.
