We’re two weeks into Black History Month and First Lady Melania Trump has finally decided to acknowledge it.
On Tuesday, FLOTUS tweeted:
It was wonderful to welcome guests to the @WhiteHouse this evening in celebration of National African American History Month. We look forward to hosting many more events that celebrate our unique and diverse cultures. #BlackHistoryMonth2018
— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) February 13, 2018
We not even going comment on the fact that she called it “National African American History Month.” Instead, we’d like to remind everyone of the time Mrs. Trump hit the media circuit to peddle the racist Barack Obama birther conspiracy.
In 2011, Melania told Joy Behar, “It’s not only Donald who wants to see [Obama’s birth certificate], it’s American people who voted for him and who didn’t vote for him. They want to see that.”
After Behar explained that Obama’s birth certificate was readily available for view on the internet, Melania replied, “We feel it’s different than birth certificate.”
And now, the responses to FLOTUS’s
Black History Month “National African American History Month” tweet…
Weren’t you part of the birther movement?

This is your daily reminder that the most educated First Lady in American history was a Black woman. Michelle Obama is the only FLOTUS to hold 2 Ivy League degrees from Harvard and Princeton. pic.twitter.com/2lgknETaKR

What do you know about black history? The closest you’ve been to a black person was Omarosa!

What the heck does she do? She goes into hiding when the Stormy Daniels story broke (how’s that going by the way?) and emerges a month later to shake hands with some African Americans at a reception. Laziest First Lady ever.
