#UglyMelania was a top trend on Twitter, only followed by the ironic #BeBest hashtag for her ugly behavior. Never in our history have we had such a clueless and classless First Lady.
Once again, Melania, in front of millions, actually condoned her husband’s bullying of a disabled child. Melania said Greta had it coming to her, just like a violent bully would say about the victim. According to Melania, her husband’s jealous attack was just “communicating differently”, and Greta’s concern for her generation doesn’t warrant her being treated with any kind of respect.
I don’t think it could be more ironic if I witnessed Nancy Reagan justify her husband selling crack after tweeting #JustSayNo. Or someone visiting a child detention facility with a message literally written on a coat saying how much they don’t care.
Greta, of course, is way smarter than both of them, and clapped back in the best way possible:
Greta Thunberg stood up for herself and her beliefs against the most powerful people in the world: Melania won’t even stand up to her husband. Melania is the epitome of a feckless gold digger, content to be the current arm candy until she is inevitably traded in. It’s bad enough that she is willing to justify and even support the worst impulses of her racist, hateful husband–whether it be bitherism, locking up children in cages, bashing gold star families and war widows, or mocking the disabled. However, the fact that she tried to set herself up as a champion for bullied children makes her even more wickedly horrible.
She is the worst of the worst—at best, she is sometimes pitied, but she is, and never will be, admired by anyone. She has earned her title as Ugliest First Lady, and will be remembered as such.
The polar opposite is the one Melania plagiarizes, but could never copy. Michelle Obama did not take up child bullying as her primary cause, but as a First Lady, did stand up for the child:
.@GretaThunberg, don’t let anyone dim your light. Like the girls I’ve met in Vietnam and all over the world, you have so much to offer us all. Ignore the doubters and know that millions of people are cheering you on.

Thank you, Michelle. Always First in class.
