Melania Makes Desperate Attempt to Copy Obama’s Successful Graduation Speech and Fails Miserably
This is both pathetic and outrageous.
Yes, one week after the inspiring virtual graduation that captured the nation’s heart (at least a very good part of it), one in which former President Barack Obama gave the commencement address which didn’t even utilize Trump’s name or title – yet even those on the right decided the reference “fit,” Melania Trump hosted a copycat “ceremony” at the White House on Friday, attended by about 20 students (guestimate from picture), maskless, who were given their diploma by a maskless president.
This is unbelievable.
Schools have cancelled graduations because of the pandemic, so Melania Trump invites seniors to the White House, already a COVID hotspot.
There were almost no masks, and even less distancing.pic.twitter.com/pAkjZkrOPu

Melania continues to be as banal as ever. She says she was a highly successful “supermodel,” perhaps in part because she simply cannot do the public speaking thing, and it has nothing to do with struggling with English.
It was an honor to address the class of 2020 at the @WhiteHouse yesterday. These students have proven to the entire world that they possess the strength & resilience of the American spirit. Congratulations class of 2020! pic.twitter.com/AG3wOCQhrn

“The class of 2020?” It looks like twenty students – total – were thrown together quickly after someone noticed that Trump has not done anything to honor an entire class of students upended by his pandemic, but Obama did get around to it. Obama isn’t even really the president!
No masks. No social distancing. And where is the child she shares with Failure 45*? 🤡😷🦠

We have no explanation, other than Trump’s presence, about why such simple measures weren’t followed.
No masks…. and the Dotard is about to tip over forward. Help stand him back upright. 🤣#FrontotemporalDementia

We addressed that very thing yesterday, except it’s no longer funny given how obvious it’s become and yet still no action.
This is so ironic:
Really. A liar when she said she had a university degree; plagerized Michelle’s speech, and BE BEST is a bust when she lives with the BE BEST BULLY… the eye is blind when the mind is absent.

Yes, the woman who claimed to have a degree in architecture and plagiarized a speech – two confirmed acts, is standing there telling students how to be best.
You have had numerous confirmed cases of Coronavirus at the White House. Not enforcing masks makes you an absolute irresponsible dumbass.

Yes, putting kids, parents, and themselves at risk, totally needlessly, all because they’re too cool to wear masks. Oh, yeah, and COVID has already been confirmed more than once in the White House.
President Obama already addressed them. Just like with your marriage to Trump, you're late to the game.

I want to challenge them sometimes. What makes her best? The fact that she’s the third wife of his? White? Model? Some combo of all three?
Typical Melania effort.
Twitter had a field day:
Where are their MASKS?? They are not 6 feet apart. You have blood on your hands along with the monster you’re married to. And why would GRADUATES want to hear from a hooker?? What wisdom do you possibly have to offer except pic.twitter.com/ZPRcan9ztE

Why wasn’t everyone wearing masks? You disrespect those young people by being so close without a mask on. The virus was in your home!!

Why would anyone allow their child near the White House especially since their negligence is why those kids didn’t have a real graduation!

You are incredibly irresponsible. This was a vanity project for you and your cult leader. There is a pandemic going on. But I guess with 95,000+ dead the mantra at the WH is “I really don’t care, do you?!”
