Left-leaning media has not been kind to First Lady Melania Trump. Mocking everything from her shoes to her accent, she is always a target for ridicule.
Bullying is an issue near to Mrs. Trump’s heart. Why wouldn’t it be, considering how much her family has endured over the last year? Even her 11-year-old son Barron has been victimized. Not even something as innocent as Christmas decorations is off-limits.
The first-lady recently kicked-off her anti-bullying initiative in Michigan. She spent time with children at Orchard Lake Middle School in the Detroit suburb of Bloomfield Hills. During that visit, Melania essentially told the children to be kind to one another because life is hard enough.
A Tasty Lesson
Last week, Melania put her words into action by teaching members of the press the same lesson on kindness. Along with Second Lady Karen Pence, Mrs. Trump visited first responders in Houston, Texas.
Houston and surrounding areas were devastated after Hurricane Harvey tore through the region in September. While hurricane season is officially over, the area is still in the process of rebuilding after the disaster.
During their visit, the first and second ladies stopped to have lunch at the popular hamburger joint “Whataburger.” But they didn’t keep the yummy goodies to themselves. Instead, they bought lunch for everyone, including the press.
USA Today reporter Julie Garcia shared the moment Pence and Trump handed over the bags of burgers and fries on Twitter. “@flotus and @SecondLady bought the press pool @Whataburger French fries! #melaniaInTX,” Garcia wrote excitedly.
President Trump made a similarly kind gesture late last year. In November of 2016, the press was relentlessly pursuing then-president-elect Trump everywhere he went. Something that hasn’t changed more than a year later.
Despite the continuous onslaught of harsh media criticism, both the president and Melania prove every day that they are a class act. Although, for their supporters, proof of that is not really necessary.
