Melania Trump’s ‘Read a Book Day’ Tweet Backfires Epically

Share on Facebook

Melania Trump is just trying to do her best. Unfortunately for her, it’s not good enough.

On the morning of September 6, the reluctant First Lady of the United States tweeted out an innocent enough message about National #ReadABookDay

She encouraged everyone to pick up a book. But, because of her position and who her husband is, everyone grabbed their laptops instead and piled on mercilessly.

We feel slightly bad for Melania, but the jokes are choice.

Whether it’s the shoes she wore to the hurricane or the man her dad resembles a little too closely (hint: it’s The Donald), the public just can’t seem to let her be and not make fun of her.

Alas, it was not. It proved very, very mockable.

She might as well have written, “Go to the library or a book store. Pick one of those things off the shelves. Open to the first page — those are the floppy things in the middle. Sound out the words…”

What this tweet is really saying is, “Just tell me the last book you read. I’m curious, that’s all. Why is it so hard to tell me? Is it because you’ve never read a book. Is it because you don’t ever read? Is it? Is it?

She didn’t come back with any brilliant tomes, so people were happy to help her out. As you’ll see, the suggestions weren’t always “helpful.”

Nevermind encouraging everyone else to read. We all know of a guy the First Lady happens to be really close to who could use a history lesson…

Ooh yeah, but only read a book on climate change during the day. If you read it at night, it will scare you so badly you’ll have nightmares.

Hope you brought your slicker, Melania.

We know it’s a TV show, Melania. We know it’s happening in real life all around us everywhere, Melania. That doesn’t mean the book isn’t worth a read.

…for whatever reason. Not sure why you would be, but just in case. Then things got…academic.

Isn’t it amazing that Melania didn’t even ask for book recommendations, and yet here are all these lovely people stepping up to the plate? Oh, these are mean spirited jabs? Ah, makes more sense.

Aren’t people on Twitter just SO helpful?

If you’ll remember, there was that little incident where part of Melania’s speech was maybe possibly plagiarized from one of Michelle Obama’s. Let’s hear it for a callback! What other responses did people have?

Michelle would be proud of whoever was the mastermind behind this one.

Pack up that hatchback and go, baby! We all support this, but the masses still weren’t done!

advertisement

It’s just advice, so take or don’t take it, but it seemed to be POPULAR advice.

This is probably just a good read for everyone in general. Since Nazis are back and everything.

Could be I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings. Could be The Cat in the Hat. Literally just show us that the man is literate. Anyway, Happy National Read a Book Day.

Melania may not practice what she preaches, but you certainly can!
