First Lady Melania Booed In Baltimore At Opioid Event

First lady Melania Trump was booed during a speech in Baltimore, as she was greeted with a mixed chorus of boos and applauds at a youth summit in the city President Trump referred to a “very dangerous place.”

The First Lady got an earful from the crowd when she was introduced Tuesday at the “B’More Youth Summit,” and the boos continued during her speech addressing the nation’s opioid crisis, as TMZ reported.

“Thank you to all of the students who are here. I am so proud of you for the bravery it takes to share that you have been strongly affected by the opioid epidemic in some way,” she said above the persistent talking in the audience in an auditorium at University of Maryland, Baltimore County.

The first lady touted her work with “Be Best,” which focuses on children’s well-being, online safety and opioid abuse.

“Promoting education and awareness on these issues will always be one of my top priorities. I am in this fight with you and I am fighting for you. I encourage you, if you are struggling with addiction right now, reach out for support — whether it’s a teacher, parent, friend, grandparent, coach or pastor, talk to an adult in your life that you trust. It is never too late to ask for help,” she told the crowd.

President Trump ripped the city of Baltimore back in July, referring to Rep. Elijah Cummings’ district, which includes parts of Baltimore, as a “disgusting, rat and rodent infested mess” and a “very dangerous and filthy place.”

The President was commenting the poor conditions in Baltimore because of how the city was run by the Dems, but the left didn’t wait long to spin his words as he of was attacking the people that lived there.
