It’s almost unfair- picking on someone so overtly flawed. But she brings it on herself. The First Lady (Trump-ette?) addressed an audience at the UN this past week. She spoke on her favorite topic bullying.
Yes, it’s ironic, possibly outright moronic, that the bride of the world’s best known bully is speaking out against POTUS’ favorite pastime. Yes, POTUS’ favorite pastime is bullying. We need only look at his public humiliation of Sessions (and here) and Comey. Or how about encouraging abuse of arrestees. Or just the hazing and torment of his staff.
Among the best lines:
No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorised, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn…
Perhaps, it’s just that Trump-ette feels that it’s OK to bully or threaten adults? But, children are off limits as the target of such overtly juvenile behavior. See goes on:
We must teach each child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of the kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership which can only be taught by example…
By our own example we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they will inherit.
We must remember that they are watching and listening so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life’s many ethical lessons along the way.
Is she clueless? Oblivious? Simply stupid? Or more likely is this her was of standing up to the man who probably makes her daily existence a pure living hell. I’m hoping for the latter.
