Today is Mental Health Day and all over the globe people are raising awareness and advocacy against the social stigma against individuals with mental health issues. The subject of mental health in the year 2020 is even more relevant during these uncertain times where people are more vulnerable than ever. Most of us know someone who is currently battling or has battled with these issues; awareness and discussion are healthy things when done by the right people. Sadly Melania is generally not one of those people.
Perhaps Melania is being sincere or maybe it was suggested to her by an aide to make her look good; she tweeted this:
On this #Worldmentalhealthday let’s make it a priority to take care of our mind, body & spirit. Seek out the tools needed to unleash your full potential. Connect with loved ones & ask for help if you are struggling.

As innocuous as that tweet is, it is questionable that it would come from her. Given her husband’s personal contribution to fomenting mental health issues among the populace – it’s hard to take her seriously whether she means it or not. Also, don’t forget her feelings about kids being locked in cages. Listen below:
The responses Melania received on social media stayed on point.
Have you thought about the mental health of the families of the 215K dead from COVID, which Trump said was a hoax and lied about its dangers? What about those left with long term damage? The Trumps are the most psychotic first family in the history of the United States.

Please have an intervention for your husband. He is suffering.

Does she even see the irony?

No, she probably doesn’t — the sentiment was nice and all, but she shouldn’t have tweeted it out, especially while she is currently aiding and abetting her husband’s fight against pre-existing conditions, mental health being the largest one of all.
