Eric Bolling Says Melania is the Most ‘Important and Accomplished First Lady in History’

Melania Trump celebrated the one year anniversary of her “Be Best” initiative on Tuesday in the White House Rose Garden.

The celebration was meant to highlight the three core agendas of Be Best: social media use, the opioid epidemic, and the well-being of children. The event will include guest speakers to represent each of the three pillars.

“Over the past year, I have had the opportunity to meet so many incredible people who are working hard every day to care for and provide a better world for our children,” Mrs. Trump said in a statement to Voice of America. “Next week will not only be an opportunity to thank so many leaders and innovators for their contributions to making Be Best a success, but a chance to come together as a community and set plans for expanding the initiative in the coming year.”

The Be Best initiative against cyberbullying is frequently criticized by those who remark on how often the president uses social media to attack his enemies. While the First Lady has said in the past that she doesn’t always agree with her husband’s online conduct, she has also defended him by speaking of his need to “fight back” against his political opponents.

One of the speakers was former Fox News host Eric Bolling, whose son died of an opioid overdose.

Bolling said Melania Trump is “the most important and accomplished first lady in American history, full stop.”
