Melania Takes To Social Media To Wish All A Happy 4th - Trolls Quickly Follow

While social media remains an outstanding way to connect with a ton of people in a hurry, there are also plenty of downsides. One of those downsides comes in the form of trolls that go out of their way to inflame others by posting snide remarks that are intended to leave a mark. Political trolls are among the most vicious of the lot, as they wait to pounce on anything that’s said or shared by a person they’re not particularly keen on.

As Blasting News shares, First Lady Melania Trump was the one with a bullseye on her back yesterday, as the trolls came out in force when she had the audacity to wish all a Happy Independence Day.

“We are the land of the free because of the brave. Thank you to the heroes who serve!” she wrote.

Because the world is sorely lacking in political commentary and opinions of late, a number of helpful users jumped right in to fill the void. Melania’s simple note was apparently a green light to attempt to insult President Donald Trump, and a number of users gave it their best shot.

“Remember, your husband got 5 deferments, called dating in NYC his personal Vietnam,” shared one user.

“Unlike your orange DraftDodgerInChief husband! But yes, thanks to our TRUE patriots who served!!!” added another user.

As hard as it may be for the above users and others to realize, politics is not something that has to be discussed every waking moment. There’s more to life than things you agree with and disagree with, and the 4th of July represented a fantastic time to take a breather and just enjoy the company of others. It appears as if that’s too much to ask for from a number of users on social media, as they couldn’t resist the urge to share their political feelings with anyone who would read them.

“I'm celebrating the freedom of the press,” wrote one commenter.

“He's not serving his country. He's making everything horrible through deregulation and playing golf a lot,” wrote another commenter.

“Looking for the source you stole that from. I'm sure it's out there,” chimed in another user.

As the president himself might write back in reply, that’s just ‘sad!’ The political debate in this country is never-ending. It will not be solved tomorrow, next week or next year, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be all-consuming. There are plenty of things out there to be thankful for, and Independence Day is one of those times when we can all get together and reflect without stressing out so much. Is it really that much to ask for to have a day go by without some completely unnecessary political sniping?

It apparently is way too much to ask for, and that’s unfortunate. On the bright side, those that can’t go a single day without complaining and whining provide some fantastic inspiration for the rest of us to remain grounded in reality.
