CNN contributor Rick Wilson Wishes Melania to be Infected by Coronavirus
Outspoken Never Trump Leader and CNN contributor Rick Wilson wished that the deadly coronavirus infects first Lady Melania Trump. In his Twitter rant, the anti-Trump leader used the hashtag “#BeInfected” sharing an article from his media network.
The first lady who had previously launched the “Be Best” campaign aimed at educating and raising awareness on bullying will also be featured on the official White House public service announcements. According to the CNN article, the announcement which is set to air nationally will discuss ways for the public to protect themselves from the virus.
The announcement follows the advice of health experts to constantly wash hands, and observe social distancing. In the same article, professor of history at Ohio University, Katherine Jellison, believed that this was a great move. “I think this would be a great time to remind Americans about the “‘Be Best” campaign.” The professor also highlighted that it is important to remind youngsters to remain kind and sympathetic, especially in such stressful situations.
Even model and outspoken Trump critic Chrissy Teigan chimed in bashing Melania. In her Twitter post, Teigan expressed her massive disdain over the first lady and even dragged her “Be Best” campaign. In a Twitter thread, Teigan bashed Melania’s anti-bullying campaign. She went on to describe the first lady as a “wifebot” and practically called her useless.
Has melania even thought about doing something with her be best shit during these times? I see regular ass awesome people on my timeline all day doing all they can to make people happy and this wifebot is working on whatever the fuck a tennis gazebo is— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 18, 2020
She continued to say that all the first lady was good for is making Christmas arrangements and wearing her cape.
ALL I have seen this bot do is gently touch Christmas ornaments in a cape and stare in a cape and pat statues in a different cape and then change her cape into a rude ass jacket. Fuck you— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 18, 2020
Then, Teigen concluded that the president is a “loser,” and that she expected more from the first lady.
I expect Donald to be a do nothing fucking loser wimp but she could maybe possibly try to uhhh BE BETTER possibly the best be the best the best be best.— christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) March 18, 2020
In the trying times, the first family had also been actively spreading awareness and positivity. In fact, even presidential daughter Ivanka shared a wholesome family post which suggested kid-friendly activities that could be tried at home during a lockdown. However, Teigan had also criticized such measures asking her to provide for more tests.

As an answer to Teigan’s COVID-19 test requests, Vice-President Mike Pence assured the American public that “tens and thousands” of tests will be made available in the next few days. These automated tests will replace the current manual one, which can only generate 40-50 results in a week.
Even director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, claimed that there is no one to blame for the delay, especially not President Trump. Moreover, the administration had also assured thousands of affected American citizens that they would receive individual stimulus possibly in the next two weeks.
