On Tuesday, the White House consigned 30 children from the Washington DC charter school Digital Pioneers Academy to watch the inspirational movie Wonder with two billionaires who don’t give a shit about them, the United States Secretary of Education and the First Lady. Perhaps tired, hungry, or realizing that she’s just a prop in Melania Trump’s bullshit propaganda “Be Best” campaign, this girl decided to be best and not Be Best, looking directly into the camera and crossing her arms.
@FLOTUS tweeted a photo album of everybody watching the movie, proof that they actually did this very inspirational thing, and implemented demonstrable action everybody can get behind: free T-shirts for all! Melania or her team captioned the images:
Thank you to the students & teachers from @DPApcs who joined me & @BetsyDeVosED to watch the movie #Wonder in the @WhiteHouse theater today. What a wonderful message! #BeBest #BullyingPreventionMonth #ChooseKind
You will notice that Melania and Betsy DeVos sit in plush armchairs with footrests and side tables for their popcorn, occupying the space of six people who sit in the regular theater seats behind them. “BETSY’S CHAIR!” someone must have told a child eager for a front-row seat who apparently thinks he or she can have everything, but nothing in life is free, kids.
