Last week while speaking at an Opioid Awareness conference in Baltimore, Maryland, our amazing and selfless first lady was booed by ungrateful and rude students.

The liberal media, in many cases, have perpetuated this phenomenon of “booing the Trumps,” as I see it.

To make matters worse, Melania Trump was booed on the very same day that President Donald Trump donated a quarter of his salary to fight opioid addiction.

You can watch the video below to see what went on.

And note how gracious and classy the first lady was, no matter what came her way.

Unlike so many liberals, in my opinion, Melania Trump is pure class.

Rather than adding fuel to the fire, Mrs. Trump defended the kids and their right to free speech.

Melania Trump issued a statement on Wednesday that read in part: “We live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinion.”

She added, “But the fact is we have a serious crisis in our country, and I remain committed to educating children on the dangers and deadly consequences of drug abuse.”

Tomi Lahren has a message for you if you’re in first lady Melania Trump’s presence: Show some respect.

In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Wednesday, the Fox Nation host spoke out after a group of Baltimore middle and high school students booed the first lady at a Be Best event focused on the dangers of opioids.

“Can you imagine if this were Michelle Obama?” she asked. “But because this is Melania Trump people feel as though they get a pass and it’s absolutely wrong. It’s despicable. Young people need to learn a lesson in this country. You just respect people,” she said.

“She should be. If you see what she brings as a naturalized citizen, as an international model, she should be on more covers than Jennifer Aniston, but she’s virtually ignored,” said “Fox & Friends” co-host Brian Kilmeade.

Kilmeade went on to commend the first lady for not reacting to the crowd at the B’More Youth Summit on Opioid Awareness. “She’s booed on stage knowing that every camera is there, but instead of speeding up and getting rattled, she keeps her calm, stays composed,” he said.

Following the event, Melania Trump issued a statement.

“We live in a democracy and everyone is entitled to their opinion, but the fact is we have a serious crisis in our country and I remain committed to educating children on the dangers and deadly consequences of drug abuse,” the statement said.

Lahren felt the students’ behavior was a sign of a bigger issue in America. (source: Yahoo News)
