Melania Touting ‘Be Best’ Campaign Backfires, Don Lemon Calls Her Out

Melania’s not fooling anyone, least of all Don Lemon. Trump recently attacked Lemon and LeBron James in an openly racist tweet which shocked even the most hardened of Trump critics. “Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!”

The tweet was hardly a dog whistle, it was more like a bullhorn.  Melania replied with the somewhat lukewarm, “It looks like LeBron James is working to do good things on behalf of our next generation.”

Lemon thanked Melania but he also issued this caveat, don’t read too much into her statement because “We have to remember, she was a birther, too.” Against that background, Melania tweeted on her Best Best initiative, where she incongruously proposes to teach children to be kind and respectful on social media when she’s married to the biggest and rudest Twitter bully of all time.

It will be interesting to see how Melania’s work on her “platform” progresses.
