Current First Lady of the United States Melania Trump might not have a staff — or footprint — as large as her predecessors, but she does have one. Someone, somewhere in the East Wing prepared a message for her official Twitter account this Tuesday in honor of the anniversary of the 9/11 terror attacks in New York City. It’s just an image of her and her husband — President Donald Trump — overlaid with the text:
‘We Remember 9.11.01’
It’s a simple but effective message fulfilling some unspoken obligation she has to — you know — acknowledge the fact that she’s FLOTUS, although it is questionable for someone to have chosen to post an image of the Trumps to honor a day that quite simply has nothing to do with them. They’re not the focus.
President Trump, meanwhile, instead of having to aim to do something, carried on with his familiar furious antics. In between Twitter posts honoring various aspects of the day, including a memorial for the victims of United Flight 93 that he’ll be attending, he ranted about the supposedly corrupt Justice Department, Russia investigation — and so on.
It’s a wonder at this point that with his commitment to baseless conspiracy theories he hasn’t floated the idea that the 9/11 attacks were an inside job yet. He’s gone so far as to assert that U.S. Senator Ted Cruz’s dad was involved with the assassination of President John F. Kennedy — so it’s not as though he has some overwhelming interest in holding himself back.
Along those lines, he’s infamously claimed in the past to have seen thousands of Muslims in the United States celebrating the 9/11 attacks — that, though, never happened.
Even still, Trump has, at repeated instances throughout his rise to power, pushed his anti-Muslim toxicity — the toxic effects of which no number of honorific tweets will ever be able to erase.
