Melania Trump humiliated: FLOTUS criticized by netizens following her advice to parents working remotely
Due to the global pandemic that is the coronavirus or COVID19, many are forced to work remotely and into self-isolation, self-quarantine, until further notice. As First Lady Melania Trump shared her advice on what parents who are now working remotely should do, it garnered mixed responses from users.
Trump has recently been updating her followers on social media about her Be Best initiative and how it applies to the current situation. The First Lady advised parents to teach their children how to use social media responsibly. “While most children are at home during his challenging time, they tend to be on social media throughout the day. Parents, please be sure to check on them regularly to be sure they’re practicing online safety,” tweeted Melania.
However, her advice attracted mixed responses, mostly criticism regarding her advice with some pointing out how she should do the same with her own family. One user replied that she should check up on her husband, President Donald Trump, who is known for constantly being present on social media. Another user expressed frustration towards Melania’s advice. “Kids here are currently at home until at least May 15th and yet your husband wants to send everyone back to work in 2 weeks. What are parents supposed to do then? How can that #BeBest for children? I don’t expect an answer,” said the commenter.
“I’m sure everyone is grateful to be receiving parenting advice from you,” said another commenter.
Nevertheless, the First Lady continues to share some advice to her followers and to the public on what to do in the midst of the quarantine period on Twitter. Melania advised children to keep in touch with their grandparents online to lift their spirits. “Many elderly people are unable to receive visitors right now & while this will all be temporary, I encourage children to create colorful cards or pictures and show them to their loved ones via Facetime. The thought would mean a lot & bring a smile to many faces!” Tweeted Melania.
The First Lady also retweeted an update from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, echoing her advice for children and their parents to keep in touch with their grandparents and the elderly online. The elderly are known for being the most at risk of contracting coronavirus.
