The Trumps sure do love their social media, even as their attempts at public engagement continue to incur significant blowback for them. First Lady Melania Trump is continuing on with her anti-bullying, child wellness program called “Be Best,” sharing a message on Twitter this weekend tying national “Take Back Day” to the initiative. Besides the no doubt most high profile and ironic element of standing against bullying, the program is also meant to highlight the impacts of opioid addictions, which proper disposal of prescription drugs can help avert in some cases. Many begin with family pills improperly left behind.

Melania shared:

is a reminder to dispose of your unused prescription drugs responsibly! Find your nearest collection center at DEA.GOV #BeBest’

It remains deeply out of place for Melania to be proceeding with her anti-bullying program that in reality, hasn’t really done much outside of “initiatives” like the presentation of educational material that was essentially a reprint of something first unveiled under the Obama administration. The same morning the First Lady posted the above message, her husband — President Donald Trump — went on Twitter to assert that recent NFL draft standout pick Nick Bosa shouldn’t have apologized for social media behavior like calling prominent activist and former quarterback Colin Kaepernick a “clown.” In other words, not only is Donald continuing to engage in his own name-calling and endless rounds of bullying, he’s actively trying to recruit others to his side. Could that contrast any more strikingly with the idea Melania keeps pushing to “Be Best”?

Besides his Bosa commentary, some of Trump’s other most recent, high-profile bullying has included targeting Democratic presidential contenders. He’s zeroed in on two of the frontrunners, former Vice President Joe Biden — aka “Sleepy Joe” to Trump — and Sen. Bernie Sanders (Vt.), who the president has referred to as “Crazy Bernie.”

Besides those issues, the Trump administration has taken some steps to combat the drug addiction problem the First Lady’s program is supposed to highlight, but questions remain. For instance, the Trump administration seeks to completely throw out the Affordable Care Act — otherwise known as ObamaCare — which provides for a nationwide Medicaid expansion that some drug-addicted individuals use to pay for treatment. What if their coverage is suddenly gone?

In short, the situation is far more contentious than the First Lady’s team would have us believe.
