First Lady Melania Faces Criticism On Social Media Over Coronavirus Care Packages
On Saturday, First Lady Melania Trump sent lunch packages to employees working at Trader Joe’s, a move that has been heavily criticized on social media. The boxes were emblazoned with the Be Best logo, Melania’s campaign against bullying.
Images of the delivered lunch packages were posted on social media by Catherine Cypher, Director of Media Affairs for Melania Trump, with the caption: “Our nation stands unified in supporting those serving on the frontline of Covid-19. To show her gratitude, FLOTUS had boxed lunches delivered to staff at a local Trader Joes.”
The post was slammed by social media users, many who called into question the first lady’s actions.
One person commented: “Flotus takes food to Trader Joe’s. That’s hilarious. Doesn’t Trader Joe’s sell FOOD? She needs to take fries to McDonalds next.”
Another one wrote: “Please stop! This is absolutely ridiculous! Sending staff in suits to drop boxes off with your branding is CHEAP, TACKY and INSULTING!”
One person said: “Yer bless you for sending food to people that work in a profession in which they are surrounded by the very thing you are serving! Maybe sending food to healthcare workers or homeless individuals or even the children that are not eating school meals!”
