Last week I was fortunate enough to see one of our First Lady’s rare public speaking appearances here in Las Vegas, where she made an appearance at a town hall meeting to discuss the opiate crisis that is tearing our great nation apart. The First Lady was interviewed by Fox News personality Eric Bolling, who tragically lost his only child in October of 2017 when his son died of an accidental drug overdose.
The press has often been cruel to Melania Trump, and online she has been referred to as everything from a gold-digger to a prostitute. Despite this, FLOTUS was the epitome of poise, grace, and beauty from her perfectly styled hair to the red bottoms of her Christian Louboutin shoes as she classily told them where they can stick it as she wrapped up her town hall appearance.
Mrs. Trump has come a long way since the early days when she told ABC News “I’m the most bullied person in the world.” Today, she’s giving it right back to them by staying above it. In response to a question Bolling asked her about the press, the First Lady challenged the press to spend more time covering the opiate crisis and less time on “idle gossip and trivial stories.”
Melania Trump is no stranger to the press’s BS. In fact, she said her personal experience being the target of internet trolls was what motivated her to start her Be Best campaign, which focuses on anti-bullying measures and helping combat the opioid crisis in our communities. The First Lady is proving that the best revenge is living well by living her life free from the drama and BS of the fake Liberal news media.
When it comes to idle gossip and trivial stories, Melania Trump knows of what she speaks. Over the past two years the Frist Lady has been personally attacked over her every word, move, breath, and outfit. Designers have refused to dress her, and when she wore a white pith helmet on her trip to Africa she was accused of being a colonialist and/or a Nazi from Raiders of the Lost Ark. When she wore her infamous “I really don’t care, do you?” jacket, which was meant to send a message to the press, they spun it to appear that she was sending a message to caged children about how little she cared about them.
When it comes to both President and Mrs. Trump, the press never runs out of awful things to say to try to cause controversy for ratings. In fact, when Bolling, who is a longtime friend of the Trumps, called FLOTUS “Lady M” during the town hall as a sign of respect, the press even attempted to fabricate a controversy about that.
Although the press has a lot of negative things to say about the Trumps, when it comes to the opioid crisis and most everything else, their track record speaks for itself.
What the Trumps have done about the opioid crisis:
- President Trump declared the opioid epidemic a public health crisis, calling it “the worst drug crisis in American history.”
- $6B of the budget has been directed toward the fight against opiate abuse.
- Good Samaritan laws are being enacted to increase the likelihood that when someone is in trouble, their companions will get them the help they need instead of being too afraid to come forward.
- On a personal level, when they heard about the tragic death of the Bollings’ son, the Trumps called and asked if there was anything they could do to help. They called the Bollings a second time to offer their assistance on the first Thanksgiving they shared without their son.
What the press has done about the opioid crisis:
- Nothing, and that was exactly Melania Trump’s point. BOOM.
The First Lady pointed out that lives could be saved by responsible journalism, but the press has proven time and again that American lives are not their priority. Fair reporting, the truth, and helping to build a stronger country are also not on their priority list. The press’s attacks on the Trumps are attacks on us all by prioritizing their own selfish need for ratings over the country’s wellbeing.
When it comes to how the media unfairly attacks Melania Trump, I really do care. We all should.
