Melania Trump: First Lady mocked as BeBest campaign ridiculed on Twitter by critics


The First Lady, and wife of US President Donald Trump, attended the Drug Enforcement Administration’s National Red Ribbon Rally to promote the upcoming Red Ribbon week to raise awareness of drug abuse. Part of Melania’s BeBest initiative raises awareness for drug abuse, in particular opioid dependence. After attending the event she tweeted: “A wonderful Red Ribbon rally at DEAHQ this AM. Schools are getting ready for Red Ribbon Week beginning on 10/23.

“We honour the many law enforcement agents who keep our communities safe & celebrate the students who pledged to live drug free lives today! BeBest.”

Many people were not impressed by Melania’s involvement in the rally and unleashed waves of criticism upon the First Lady through Twitter.

Lots of the posts claimed Melania’s campaign and attendance at the event was hypocritical.

Others also said the First Lady should use her campaign at home with Trump.

“I am not against BeBest, I am against the hypocrisy.”

One Twitter user said: “BeBest? Tell that to the man that sleeps in the room next to you!”

“How about you set down your phone and try to get him to BeBest instead of being a worldwide disaster?”

One Twitter user told Melania she should “clean up the mess at home first”.

The First Lady was joined at the event by ‘Breaking Bad’ actor Dean Norris.

She received backlash for failing to wear a ribbon at the rally but the White House claimed she hadn’t received one before the event.
