First Lady Melania Trump has so far been warmly welcomed on her tour of Africa, but a few demonstrators in Malawi took the opportunity to send her a message.
Trump visited a primary school in Lilongwe, Malawi on Thursday that has received assistance from the United States, the Washington Post reported.
It was the first lady’s second stop on a four-nation tour of the African continent. She observed several outdoor classrooms at Chipala Primary School and saw first-hand the challenges faced by educators. Just 77 teachers educate more than 8,500 students who attend the school. Many of the students must sit outside in crowds around their teacher.
Trump’s motorcade traveled along a roadside where a handful of white protesters greeted the first lady with handmade signs, including a couple that said “Me Too” and “#notashithole!”
Back in Washington, President Donald Trump was busily drumming up support for his U.S. Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who stands accused of sexually assaulting women when he was in high school and college. The president, who has also been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women, has turned a deaf ear to the #MeToo movement.
At the same time, the president’s racist comment that African nations are “shithole” countries continues to anger many in Africa and African-Americans. However, some African leaders, including Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari, have downplayed the president’s racist comment.
The first lady went about her business on Thursday, probably ignoring the signs. She appeared at an event with the U.S. ambassador who handed over another 1.4 million books to Malawi officials as part of a U.S.-funded national reading program.

All I have to say is the same punishment needs to apply for all. If Bill Cosby is going to prison, so does:— Brandon Fluellen (@BMFluellen1) September 25, 2018

Bill Cosby is no different than the Catholic Church-claiming Moral Authority in Public Space while committing the WORST abuses & betrayals of trust behind Closed Doors. I do not feel sorry for Cos. I feel sorry for THE WOMEN he’s hurt, & EVERYONE he’s betrayed.— Vernon Reid (@vurnt22) September 25, 2018

You’ll support Bill Cosby and R Kelly because you have a misplaced sense of loyalty to men who mean us harm.— machine gun Kele (@kelechnekoff) September 25, 2018

If somebody had told me 30 years ago that Donald Trump would be president and Bill Cosby would be in prison, I would’ve told them that they had lost their damned mind.— Captain Montego (@M3g4d37h) September 25, 2018

Bill Cosby is anti-black, practiced respectability politics and a rapist and because you watched The Cosby Show growing up it's sad to see Cosby go like that? Fuck you, stop enabling rape culture and believe survivors.— Black Fat Queer (@FlamingFatQueer) September 25, 2018

I’ll never get how one can come from a marginalized people yet marginalize people. For all the joy he brought to folks it was ultimately incommensurate with the wickedness he wrought. Bill Cosby brought this on himself and, sadly in 3-10 years his victims pain will still be there— Cyrus McQueen (@CyrusMMcQueen) September 25, 2018

THANK YOU! 😂. This tweet sums up my feelings towards Bill Cosby 💯 As much as he wanted to “better” the black community, he also (unknowingly) aided the system in the negative perception of black youth/hip hop in the US. Too many racists repeating his words back to black people. https://t.co/T1LZuLZhNh— Black Wolverine (@TheKolaNut) September 26, 2018
