JUST IN: Melania Trump HUMILIATES Her Husband, Praises Parkland Students ‘They’re Our Future’


In a rare speech on Monday, First Lady Melania Trump bucked her husband’s insane NRA worship, praising the teenage activists who survived the Parkland, Florida high school shooting. Both she and the president were speaking at a White House luncheon for governors’ spouses.

“As a parent, I cannot imagine the kind of grief a tragedy like that brings, and I hope and I know we all find ourselves wondering what we can do to help,” she told the White House attendees. “In my year as first lady, I have also learned it is oftentimes after a tragedy that you see the strength and resilience of the human spirit. I have been heartened to see children across this country using their voices to speak out and try to create change. They’re our future, and they deserve a voice.”

“As I’ve said before, it’s important that as adults we take the lead and responsibility in helping our children manage the many issues they are facing today,” she said. “This means encouraging positive habits with social media and technology, even limiting time online and understanding the content they are exposed to on a daily basis.”


WATCH:

Melania also made a plea to children.

“Children, I hope you will join me today in my efforts and ask for your support,” she said. “My office is reaching out to many of you in the future as we travel the country and work to promote and fight for the well-being of our children.”

Survivors of the shooting at a South Florida high school are protesting to pressure lawmakers to act on gun control legislation. The massacre killed 17 of the young activists’ classmates.

Melania’s husband, Pres. Donald Trump, also spoke at the luncheon, but his remarks were in sharp contrast to those of his wife. He insanely declared that he would have totally charged into the building to save everyone.

“You don’t know until you test it, but I think, I really believe I’d run in there, even if I didn’t have a weapon, and I think most of the people in this room would have done that too.” 

The reality.

Yeah, we agree.
