Melania Attempts Coronavirus ‘Condolences’ Message But Fails Miserably

This Wednesday, First Lady Melania Trump posted a message on Twitter of condolences to those who have lost loved ones amidst the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic — but it was not exactly received well by all who saw it. Amidst the crisis, “thoughts and prayers” are needed a whole lot less than the crucial, lifesaving supplies that authorities around the country have been after. These supplies include ventilators, personal protective equipment like masks, and more — which Melania’s husband, the president, completely baselessly suggested medical personnel were hoarding at a recent press conference.

Melania’s message, it’s worth noting, even included an apparent typo. (She wrote “love ones” instead of “loved ones.”) After weeks of glib dismissal of the Coronavirus’s significance followed by weeks more of the president lashing out opponents left and right while Coronavirus cases and deaths grew and grew, this misspelled Twitter message is what we get.

Melania commented:

Sincere condolences to the families who have lost love ones to #COVID19, and to anyone who is sick, you are in our thoughts & prayers to get better soon.’

Her message, it’s worth noting, came the day after President Trump adopted what some observers initially called an especially somber tone at a White House press conference. At that press conference, he and public health officials including Dr. Deborah Birx and Dr. Anthony Fauci discussed projections from the University of Washington that the U.S. could suffer 100,000 or more deaths before the Coronavirus crisis winds down, which, to put the figure in perspective, is higher than an estimate of total American deaths during the entire Vietnam War.
