During the 2016 presidential election, without any sense of irony whatsoever, Melania Trump pledged to focus on the problem of bullying during her time as the first lady. Yesterday, she joined Betsy DeVos (yes, that Betsy DeVos) at a middle school in Michigan to kick off National Bullying Prevention Month's "Week of Inclusion."
It did not go well.
The first lady visited Orchard Lake Middle School in West Bloomfield, Michigan. As part of her visit, Melania spoke to sixth-grade students about the importance of respecting others, kindness, and inclusion. Here's a picture of that:

Seriously. Let's take a closer look at the kids' faces.

This kid looks like he's just looking for the best way to escape the situation.Which also makes sense because Melania Trump was talking to him about bullying. And Melania Trump's husband is a bully who chided the victims of Hurricane Maria for costing the U.S. government a lot of money.
This child's thoughts can be summed up with one word.He doesn't appear to want anything to do with listening to Melania Trump talk about how bullying is bad. Probably because Melania Trump is married to a bully who told a military widow that her husband "must've known what he signed up for."
And this girl...OK, you can't really tell what she's thinking, but we bet it's something along the lines of, "Is this lady for real right now?"
@cagethesage @DanaAfana @FLOTUS @MLiveDetroit can't even see her face but i know she aint having it either https://t.co/Kj8kvT6ywI— 🐷 𝖍𝖔𝖌 & 𝖇𝖆𝖑𝖑 𝖙𝖔𝖗𝖙𝖚𝖗𝖊 🐹 (@🐷 𝖍𝖔𝖌 & 𝖇𝖆𝖑𝖑 𝖙𝖔𝖗𝖙𝖚𝖗𝖊 🐹)1508821157.0
