Melania Is Getting Dragged For Copying Michelle Obama’s 'Be Better' With Her Unseasoned ‘Be Best’

"Be Best at plagiarizing."

Just when you thought Melania Trump was done getting caught ripping off a well-seasoned nugget of wisdom by Michelle Obama, she comes out with a grammatically incorrect, mayonnaise flavored slogan that's eerily similar to a quote from the former first lady. 

On Monday, first lady Melania Trump unveiled her "Be Best" campaign, an initiative intended to challenge children in three areas: physical health, social media and opioid abuse, reported Associated Press.

“The first lady has spent more than a year reading to children, learning about babies born addicted to drugs and hosting major online and social media companies to talk about cyberbullying,” AP reported.

  • After people stopped asking "what in the world does be best even mean," they realized it was the dim witted cousin of a Michelle Obama quote

    In 2016, Michelle Obama joined Oprah Winfrey during the White House Summit on the United State of Women in 2016. During the conversation, Winfrey asked Obama what men can do in order to help women.

    “What can men do leaving here?” Winfrey asked.

    “Be better,” Obama answered. “Be better at everything.”

  • Melania roasted by people on Twitter for ripping off Michelle with a cheap fake

  • The "Be Best" slogan was also trolled for having no meaning

  • Not only was Melania called out for ripping off an Obama slogan, but the "Be Best" pamphlet also resembled handouts from the previous administration

  • When the First Lady's team heard the media bashing her for stealing ideas, they released the following statement:

    “Mrs. Trump agreed to add Be Best branding and distribute the booklet in an effort to use her platform to amplify the positive message within,” Stephanie Grisham, communications director for the first lady, said in a statement to Politico. “As she said in yesterday’s speech, she is going to use Be Best to promote people and organizations to encourage conversation and replication, and helping the FTC distribute this booklet is just one small example.”

    She added: “Despite providing countless outlets with ample background, information, and on-the-record comments from the FTC, some media have chosen to take a day meant to promote kindness and positive efforts on behalf of children, to instead lob baseless accusations towards the First Lady and her new initiatives.”
