So Melania Trump is currently in Africa. FLOTUS is on a week-long solo trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt to promote her “Be Best” campaign, which aims to tackle online bullying.
Because if there’s one thing starving children in “sh*thole countries” (Trump’s words, not ours) need, it’s a lesson in online etiquette.
Ahead of her departure, FLOTUS tweeted:

Oh, the nations that your husband called “shit-hole countries”? How nice.

Really??? There are children in cages here in the U.S. But she doesn’t care, does she? Her Be Best campaign are just words, they mean nothing.

While in Ghana, Mrs. Trump toured a former slave fort, where people were kept naked and chained while they waited to be carted off on slave ships. When asked about her thoughts on that, Melania told reporters: “What happened so many years ago is really a tragedy.”
Several Ghanaians were interviewed about FLOTUS’s visit to their country, but many of them didn’t know anything about it, the AP reports.
“Did you say President Trump’s wife just arrived in Accra?” asked street vendor Awo Yeboah. “I don’t think I have ever heard her name, Melania.”
Others said they knew Mrs. Trump was coming to visit but they didn’t have any idea why or what she was doing there.
