If perhaps you were wondering why exactly this workweek seemed so full of promise when it began but wound up disappointing you as it grew to a close, it’s probably because Friday was the fifth anniversary of former First Lady Melania Trump’s #BeBest initiative.
Remember #BeBest? Sure ya do. It was meant to address the issue of bullying and cyberbullying, but it always seemed empty (and hypocritical) since Mrs. Trump refused to call her own husband out for his constant social media attacks on anyone who dared to disagree with him or oppose one of his harebrained policies such as letting COVID-19 ravage the United States as he declared that it would magically “disappear” from the face of the planet when the weather got warmer. Since then, over 581,000 Americans have died as a result of the novel coronavirus that failed, one-term former President Donald Trump refused to contain and attack with every resource available to him.
Now, however, according to some conservatives, we’re supposed to all hold hands and sing a hymn of praise to the biggest joke of a first lady (and the only one to once work as a nude model) in the history of the United States.
Benny Johnson, who is featured on Newsmax and is also part of Turning Point USA, lavished Melania with praise, posting this tweet:
What in the actual hell is that all about?! Other than coining a phrase, what exactly did Melania do with the platform she had as first lady? Bupkis. Jack shit. Just like her equally worthless husband, Melania sought photo-ops and glib phrases that did nothing to actually address the problems facing this country.
Lots of Americans weren’t ready to forgive and forget the four years of horror and mayhem Melania’s husband inflicted on the nation, and they let her and Benny Johnson know how they felt:
#BeBest? Melania needs to #BeGone and stay gone.
