Children were so outraged by First Lady Melania Trump and her message about the dangers of opioids that they collectively booed her yesterday.
The First Lady spoke to kids in Baltimore as part of a series of events around the country raising awareness about the drugs.
As Trump was introduced and took the stage a B’More Youth Summit for Opioid Awareness, loud boos and jeers filled the auditorium.
