Standing ovation at @LibertyU as @FLOTUS takes the stage to talk about the dangers of opioid abuse. Thank you to the thousands of students who are in attendance today! Cc: @ericbolling pic.twitter.com/kAKqviCHMD— Stephanie Grisham (@StephGrisham45) November 28, 2018

During her speech, Mrs. Trump called the opioid epidemic the worst drug crisis in American history.
At a Town Hall at Liberty University, @FLOTUS said opioid addiction is a disease. She called for "removing the stigma of shame" for addiction, and urged those who need help to "be brave enough" to ask for it. pic.twitter.com/sKbhJiziSA— Mark Knoller (@markknoller) November 28, 2018
After her remarks, Mrs. Trump was interviewed by CRTV Host Eric Bolling. You can watch her remarks and the question & answer session below.
First Lady Melania Trump speaks at Liberty University
Melania is BEAUTIFUL both inside and out
She is amazing.
It is refreshing finally having a female first lady.
She sure is.
so glad to hear this.........with all the nastiness from the left it is nice to see there are still decent people out there
“...gave a speech about the opioid crisis at Liberty University.”
They have a drug problem? Nah; just lousy writing.
I have yet to see Melania on a magazine cover. But I've seen plenty of covers of Yeti (cough, Michelle...)
Last year Eric Bolings son, a sophomore at Colorado University, died of an opioid overdose. His parents never suspected that he was involved with drugs. Eric Boling has as his mission telling parents and their children about this terrible scourge.
Does anyone know if there is a program on TV with Melania, about the White House decorations?
“It is refreshing finally having a female first lady.”
Yes. A HUMAN First Lady. Not a Sasquatch or alien wookie.
She is beautiful, inside and out! Have you read the awful, hateful, disgusting things the, ‘Mom’s Basement Dwellers’ are saying about the Christmas Décor at The White House?
Absolutely hideous...and SO predictable!
Having lost my husband and step-son to them choosing opioids over me, and a nephew dead of a heroin overdose, I am SO GLAD she’s making opioids part of her platform as First Lady. I’m certainly NOT the only Mom or Grandma, Aunt or Sister dealing with this in her life!
Thank You, FLOTUS. Thank you! :)
Good for Liberty University!
Thank you Liberty University students for showing proper and appropriate respect for The First Lady.
I think it was on today but I didn’t see it. I’m sure it can be found online.
That’s why the lady is a Trump!
