TRAVESTY: Melania Trump Given ‘Women of Distinction’ Honor and Americans are Furious
Melania Trump is being honored by a Florida University for her contributions to society, according to the Palm Beach Post.
The first lady is being honored by Palm Beach Atlantic University as their 2020 Women of Distinction, an award which recognizes women for their charitable leadership of organizations that support the arts, education, health care and other community initiatives
“Our first lady is an exquisite human being, a magnificent wife and life partner, a superb mother and an outstanding first lady, who represents us brilliantly in the United States and worldwide,” Eileen Burns, co-chair of the event told the post. “Melania is a perfect example of a Woman of Distinction and we are most proud to honor her.”
In May 2017 Melania helped launch Be Best, her initiative that promotes children’s social and emotional health.
But what else has she done to merit winning the “Women of Distinction” award?
Let’s take a look at that.
First, she took her sweet time moving to the White House. I mean, I get it. Her son was in school, and she didn’t want to move and disrupt his life. But that decision cost the taxpayer dearly. Her flights alone cost the taxpayers $675,000.
In October 2018, she spent $100K at on hotels in Egypt…and didn’t even spend the night. But, she got a good photo shoot out of it!
She did the same thing in Canada, but spent even more…and again, didn’t even spend the night!
Melania fully supported Brett Kavanaugh, even though everyone knows the man is a sexual abuser.
Who can forget when Melania claimed she’s the most bullied person in the world??
How about when Melania spent taxpayer money to fly to vacation in Florida, even though her husband shut the government down?
Or how about during the Stormy Daniels fiasco when she fled to Mar-a-Lago to go the spa, again, costing the American taxpayer big bucks?
Ugh, and that jacket. “I don’t really care, do u?”
She changed the name of the White House from “The People’s House” to “The President’s House.”
Melania committed a big faux pas while attending the D-Day ceremonies in Europe.
There is even rumor that she doesn’t even live in the White House, instead living in Maryland with Barron and her parents.
Twitter had some thoughts:
They must of meant Woman of DiSTINKtion. 🤦♂️

"Palm Beach Atlantic University" near Mara-loco? New name for "Trump U"? And any chance some of that $2 million that had to be paid back stolen from the Trump charity went to this venerable institution that no one has heard of…

As someone from that area (I literally went to FLORIDA Atlantic University locates next to PALM BEACH state college) I’ve never in my life heard of Palm Beach Atlantic University and it legit sounds fake

Palm Beach Atlantic University is basically a mini Liberty U. (Small super evangelical Christian college). So it’s just part of the evangelical snake-handling love fest on Trump.

Palm Beach Atlantic University? 😯Baptist / evangelical, right wing, mostly white, 2400 students. Most famous alum: Victoria Jackson of SNL fame. (The one who stated Obama was a communist and was a secret Islamic terrorist🤥). So yeah, I guess Melania makes sense for PBAU.
