Melania Trump was widely mocked on Twitter Tuesday after she asked students to “think about what you wish to accomplish this year” on their return to school.
“You have so much power in your individual voices. Will you strive to #BeBest?” wrote the first lady, referencing her “Be Best” campaign that aims to improve the lives of children.

Her question did not go over well, as hundreds of tweeters suggested the main thing they wanted to accomplish this year was the removal of her husband, President Donald Trump, from office
This year I want to see the president removed from office!

Good thought, now ask yourself the same question. What do you want to accomplish and how will you claim your power and claim your voice? Will you strive to use your position to rise up and support this country or will you continue to hide in the shadows? Time will tell

How about having your husband be a good example instead of how to be a bully to children!

They probably will spend their entire time at school avoiding flying bullets and trying not to get murdered in the next school shooting

You are as much of a joke as your husband by sticking with this BeBest campaign. The idea is great, and I WANT to believe you are better than him…but I just can’t. It just seems so disingenuous.

School started weeks ago for most. And can you please start with your husband about being best?

Can someone PLEASE change this slogan. The grammar is terrible. #BeBest 🤔

Good luck to all students!
Seniors, use your voice, VOTE (18yr olds). Change the ugliness of the current administration.
