Melania Speaks – Red Translates

Melania Trump, reluctant First Lady, unveiled her signature project which will focus on improving the lives of children by stopping all forms of bullying and cyber abuse.  Red thinks this is a very worthwhile and even noble attempt by the FL who despite having possibly been an illegal alien, posed naked for money, falsely claimed to speak five languages, screwed around with a rich married older man and married for money – does seem to want to set things right and maybe do some good in the world.  That’s about as decent a level of praise as anyone associated with Trumph – Our Insult Comic President will ever get from Red.  But Melania’s speech introducing her signature program seeking to protect children was undercut by an announcement by AG Jefferson Beauregard Sessions that the U.S. will now separate any children entering the U.S. illegally from their families.  So we are all about protecting children except when abusing them will pander to the GOP base.  In light of that, Red felt the need to translate a small part of Melania’s speech.

Be Best is an awareness campaign dedicated to the most valuable and fragile among us (no – not my husband’s attorneys): our children (and it’s going to be way better than Michelle Obama’s “Be Better” schtick).

There is one goal: to educate children about the many issues they are facing today (like – how can I trust anything adults say when our president is lying sack of shit).  If we truly listen to what our kids have to say, whether it’s their concerns (stumbling into war) or ideas, adults can provide them the support and tools (other than paying for public education or college loans) they need to grow up and be happy productive adults (Trump voters). Children deserve every opportunity to enjoy their innocence (and being put in federal custody apart from your annoying parents will be very enjoyable). 

Social media is too often used in negative ways (just look down the hallway at the White House), but when children learn positive behavior early on, it can be used in productive ways (voting Republican).  We have the responsibility to educate  and remind (children) when they use their voices to choose their words wisely (are you paying attention Mr. Guiliani?) and speak with respect and kindness (and very impressively I didn’t once gag on a giant bag of hypocrisy while saying that).

It remains our generation’s moral imperative to take responsibility and help our children manage the many issues they are facing today, including encouraging positive social, emotional, and physical habits (voting Republican, loving Trumpism and hating the FBI). By acknowledging there are many important issues (oh, we got your issues alright), and knowing these problems cannot be solved overnight, I believe we can change the way we think and talk (because it would really be a challenge to think or talk more crudely than my husband) about issues facing children today.
