Day when President Trump donated quarter of his presidential salary to the fight against the opioid crisis, his wife made an appearance at a Baltimore youth summit on opioid awareness. “Charm City” Baltimore showed its less-than-charming side when Melania Trump was showered with abuse from the audience at the event.
The first lady went through with her remarks with the poise that could be expected from a woman who made a career in the fashion world before marrying a future president.
But it was the statement she made afterward that mattered the most.
“We live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinion,” she said, as The New York Times reported. “I remain committed to educating children on the dangers and deadly consequences of drug abuse.”
And that is what being an adult looks like.
It was only few months ago that President Trump was engaged in a high-profile war of words with the now-deceased Baltimore Rep. Elijah Cummings over the disgraceful condition of parts of his congressional district.
These teenagers probably thought hostility toward the first lady was a chance for some public payback. But all they really did was prove they don’t know where the real problem is.
Corruption’s clearly a municipal issue in Baltimore, and where there’s crime in the halls of power, there’s going to be crime in the streets.
Not even the city’s defenders can deny the essential truth of President Trump’s charges – or the fact that decades of Democratic misrule have left Baltimore a disaster area.
Yet he teenagers in Baltimore want to boo Melania Trump?
If nothing else, the Baltimore crowd that booed the first lady got a real lesson in class.
Many conservatives on social media shared their critics towards the crowd in Baltimore.
