Today happens to be World Kindness Day, a day marked to celebrate the people who bring goodness into the world with their deeds. The day was officially marked Nov. 13, 1998, following the World Kindness Movement.
Melania Trump decided to send a tweet about World Kindness Day, and let’s just say…it didn’t go well.
The “First Lady” tweet, “On this #WorldKindessDay I had fun surprising visitors to the @WhiteHouse! Thank you to all who come through and visit this magnificent home. #BeBest”
— Melania Trump (@FLOTUS) November 13, 2018
UPDATE: The tweet has now been DELETED.
Of course this is mighty hypocritical of Melania, considering she just called for the firing of a deputy national security advisor.
Earlier Tuesday, Melania issued a stunning statement that apparently called for the ouster of deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel.
“It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that [Ricardel] no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” Melania Trump’s spokeswomen Stephanie Grisham said when asked about rumors of tensions between John Bolton‘s deputy and the first lady.
Moments later, the Wall Street Journal reported that Ricardel had been fired and escorted from the White House.
“Ricardel was fired after clash with first lady,” an anonymous official told the Journal. Ricardel had attended a White House event to celebrate Diwali, the the Hindu festival of lights, with the president on Tuesday before her firing.
Twitter immediately hit back at Melania:
Yup Mira Ricardel was surprised today by you at the White House.

I'm really getting a kick out of the fact that @FLOTUS called for the firing of deputy national security adviser Mira R. Ricardel on #WorldKindnessDay. Living in Bizarre-o World is a trip. https://t.co/nkGpYm366G
