Former First Lady Michelle Obama rang in Father’s Day with a touching tribute to her husband, Barack, and their two daughters, Sasha and Malia.

Melania’s message, however, struck a decidedly less genuine tone, simply tagging Trump’s official government Twitter account.

Even though Melania was quick to plagiarize Michelle’s speech while speaking at the 2016 Republican National Convention, it seems that Michelle’s words didn’t stick for long. They might have come in handy today, though.
While conservatives have fallen over themselves to praise the Trump family, today’s contrasting tweets are a perfect example of which First Family espouses true family values. Is it the man who has, in nearly every speech on every occasion, thanked his family and expressed his admiration for his wife, or the man who spends every weekend on the golf course, didn’t live with his family until only days ago, and skipped Mother’s Day to “hit a few balls?” The answer is, sadly, obvious.
