This Monday, First Lady Melania Trump announced the title of her mission to help the nation’s youth:‘Be Best.’ The White House released a statement announcing that the program would focus on three factors that include children: well-being, opioid abuse and the use of social media.

Speaking in the Rose Garden, First Lady Melania stated: ‘As a mother and as the first lady, it concerns me that in today’s fast-paced and ever-connected world, children can be less prepared to express or manage their emotions and oftentimes turn to forms of destructive or addictive behavior such as bullying, drug addiction or even suicide.’
Despite the good intentions of Melania, her slogan was mocked by leftists who didn’t like her accent and the fact that English wasn’t her mother tongue.
Here are the tweets:
‘Great! Now Melania is going to have speak in broken English!! Be Best <—- wtf??’ Wrote Tony on Twitter.
‘Your broken English is charming. Did you mean “Be Better”? Or “He’s A Beast!” ? Blink once for help and twice for help & vodka,’ tweeted Katie Brewer.
‘Hey FLOTUS why don’t you “Be Best” and learn proper English so that we can understand your sorry ass. Get your husband in check,’ tweeted Bteena.
‘Melania’s new platform is called ‘BeBest’? Is it supposed to mirror her broken English? Tweeted Jeremy Newberger.
‘That’s funny. Nobody has ever heard her speak anything but broken English and her native porn star tongue,’ tweeted Larry Bryan.
‘This is grammatically incorrect English. What else would we expect from a foreign trophy wife!!!’ Tweeted Piper.
There were several considerations, including:
‘So I guess it is cool to mock folks when English isn’t their first language now? Is it just the Melania or all all immigrants fair game? I’m just curious how much the ground rules have changed in the last year because I was brought up to think that’s always wrong.’ Wrote Persnickety.
‘Dear everyone making fun of Melania’s accent right now…
Melania speaks six different languages: French, English, Slovenian, Italian, German, Serbian.
‘She’s probably smarter than you so you should probably shut up.’ Tweeted Caleb Hull.
