First Lady Melania is booed by students at youth opioid summit

Those who made the Faustian bargain of aligning themselves with Donald Trump in return for money and power may in the end discover that the deep stain he’s already left on them and their legacy is far too steep a price. Administration officials who enabled this monstrous man and his systematic cruelty will be remembered by history at best as sociopathic opportunists and at worst as traitors to the Republic.

But those serving in formal capacities aren’t the only ones who will be remembered poorly. Trump’s own family members, who continue to encourage his worst impulses and stand by him as he weakens the pillars of our democracy, will ultimately be judged for their complicity.

First Lady Melania Trump, in particular, continues to publicly support the president despite the numerous credible allegations of sexual assault leveled about him and the near countless numbers of crimes he stands accused of. Unfortunately for her, it appears this moral cowardice is finally catching up.

Add your name to tell Congress to investigate Pence for his role in Trump’s Ukraine corruption. The VP is complicit!

Earlier today, the First Lady gave some remarks about the opioid epidemic at the B’More Youth Summit and things quickly got out of hand. After tossing out some inane platitudes she touted her “Be Best” campaign, her widely-mocked and deeply hypocritical campaign to promote “well-being” and cut down on cyberbullying. It’s hardly an original observation at this point, but it bears repeating that she is married to the world’s most infamous cyberbully.

Melania eventually wound down her comments and exited the stage. As she did, an overwhelming wave of boos washed over her, making it clear just how little the young people in person think of her.

CNN’s Kate Bennett was at the event and reported on Twitter that most of the people in the audience were high school and middle school-aged. She further reported that in her three years of covering Melania Trump she has never seen worse booing of the First Lady during an event where she gave solo remarks. She said there “was no love lost” for FLOTUS from the audience.

Such a vitriolic response is exactly what this First Lady deserves. Until she condemns and renounces her ogre of a husband she should be treated a pariah and held accountable for the damage she is helping inflict on this nation.
