First Lady Melania Trump came out against bullying again in the midst of her husband doing just that. She reasonably called out one of the Donald Trump impeachment hearing witnesses, legal expert Pamala Karlan. Melania Trump believes, appropriately, that the innocent young man deserved his privacy. Yes, he does, but look at what the man who helped her create that son just did.
The witness had made a pun on the Trump’s son’s name, then apologized soon thereafter, as was appropriate. FLOTUS was angry and tweeted:
‘A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics. Pamela Karlan, you should be ashamed of your very angry and obvious biased public pandering and using a child to do it.’
Many agreed with the first lady:
‘Melania DESTROYS Dem Witness After She Openly Mocks Barron Trump… RT IF YOU STAND WITH MELANIA TRUMP AND CONDEMN KARLAN’S COMMENTS…’
Trump had invited the head guy at The TIME magazine to the White House and spent most of their time together lobbying for the person of the year cover. He asked people at his rallies whether he should be “man of the year” or “person of the year.” He wanted “man of the year,” even though that would technically be half as good. In fact, he made a mockup fake TIME cover showing his face. Then, he displayed it in his resort golf stores until TIME found out and made him take it down.
Instead, that honor went to the 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, the amazing environmentalist. Greta Thunberg has Asperger’s, at the most functioning, hig-end of the autism spectrum. The young woman spoke to the United Nations this year and has become the figurehead of and inspiration for the movement.
The sore loser cyber-bullied the remarkable teenager, who was soon to be just two years older than his son:
‘So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill!’
OBY/GYN physician Jennifer Gunter called the president out for his attack. Dr. Gunter directed a sharp tweet at Mrs. Trump:
‘#BeBest and @FLOTUS you might want to have a discussion with your husband about treatment of children in public, I think that is a passion of yours. No?’ #BeBest and @FLOTUS you might want to have a discussion with your husband about treatment of children in public, I think that is a passion of yours. No?’
Thunberg’s answer to Trump was beautiful. She changed her Twitter profile bio. It read, The Bloomberg publication read:
‘A teenager working on her anger management problem. Currently chilling and watching a good old fashioned movie with a friend.’
In addition to her environmental message, she is an advocate for autism:
‘I have Aspergers and that means I’m sometimes a bit different from the norm. And – given the right circumstances- being different is a superpower.’
Twitter world went nuts. Check out these favorites of ours below:
