Melania Trump is called out by 14-year-old Parkland shooting survivor: “Even though I thought it couldn’t get worse, it has because of your family.”

One of Melania Trump’s biggest (yet most controversial) causes since becoming First Lady has been to combat cyber-bullying.

Now, Melania Trump has been called out by a survivor of the devastating Parkland shooting that took 17 innocent lives earlier this month, urging her to start her cyber-bullying campaign from her very own home.

14-year-old Lauren Hogg, who is a student at the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Florida, called on the First Lady in a series of Twitter posts, pleading with her to take her anti-bullying campaign to the most crucial people – the First Family. In particular, her stepson…

“You say that your mission as First Lady is to stop cyber bullying, well then, don’t you think it would have been smart to have a convo with your step-son @DonaldJTrumpJr”

Lauren Hogg’s Twitter messages began after Donald Trump Jr. ‘liked’ some conspiracy theory Tweets about her 17-year-old brother, David Hogg, being a “crisis actor”.

David Hogg, a student journalist, documented the horrific attacks in real time on his mobile phone, something which conspiracy theorists around the world have commented on.

He has since appeared on several news networks to discuss the event, and is leading the #NeverAgain gun control movement which challenges politicians and companies to no longer accept money from the NRA.

“Hey @FLOTUS you say that your mission as First Lady is to stop cyber bullying,” Lauren Hogg’sTweet began.

“Well then, don’t you think it would have been smart to have a convo with your step-son @DonaldJTrumpJr before he liked a post about a false conspiracy theory which in turn put a target on my back & created a safe space for people all over the world to call me and my family horrific things that constantly re-victimizes us and our community.”

“I’m 14 I should never have had to deal with any of this and even though I thought it couldn’t get worse it has because of your family.”

“I’m 14 I should never have had to deal with any of this and even though I thought it couldn’t get worse it has because of your family.”

And it didn’t end there. The 14-year-old also took to Twitter to criticise Donald Trump, in particular his proposal to give teachers guns as a means of combatting gun violence in schools…

“Hey @realDonaldTrump teachers are people too…just because they’re on a school yard doesn’t mean mental illness and racial bias doesn’t exist,” she wrote to the President.

“My question to you is, are we as America’s youth worth the risk? Is giving teachers guns really the answer?#NeverAgain #EnoughIsEnough”

We admire her courage for calling out both the First Lady and the President and messaging them directly.
