This is appalling. Who advised the students to boo the first lady? The teachers or the parents. All decent Americans should be very frightened about the kind of hatred and anti-American indoctrination that his being taught in American schools.

The event was organized as part of Trump’s “Be Best” campaign, which focuses on online safety and opioid abuse, and was co-sponsored by the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
During her speech, the first lady called on leaders to educate themselves on the opioid epidemic and to help educate the youth about the benefits of a drug-free lifestyle.
“I am in this fight with you and I am fighting for you,” Trump said. “I know each one of you has hopes and dreams for the future, whether it is college, joining the military, or playing a sport, your future will be determined by the choices you make.”
“Using drugs will only slow you down and prevent you from achieving those goals,” she added.
Earlier, the White House announced that President Donald Trump is donating his third-quarter salary to combat the opioid epidemic. The president will transfer $100,000 to the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Health, which oversees federal health agencies.
