Country singer Billy Ray Cyrus bravely crossed the aisle and offered rare well-wishes to First Lady Melania Trump’s health as she battles COVID-19 on Thursday.
Since her diagnosis last week, Melania Trump has maintained a low profile as she works through the process of the illness.
As the wife of Donald Trump, Melania takes extreme heat simply due to her proximity and relationship with the president. Melania has been a target of nasty partisan attacks almost as much as her husband, so Cyrus’s decision to speak positively about the FLOTUS is somewhat of a shock.
Cyrus shared a photo of himself posing with the first lady, captioned:
Hope you are feeling better @FLOTUS. This photo was almost exactly a year ago. Thank you again for the compassion and time you shared with Channing’s Dad and his bother. #BeBest #SuicidePrevention
The 59-year-old country star’s message was in reference to a 2019 meeting with the FLOTUS where they sat down with the family of Channing Smith, a teenager that committed suicide in September 2019 after private messages between himself and another student were leaked.
At the time, Cyrus also published a Twitter post praising the first lady’s “Be Best” anti-bullying campaign:
What an honor to sit w/The First Lady at the White House. @FLOTUS Your sincerity was truly inspiring. You/your team were so engaged to Channing’s grieving father & brother & brought ideas/strategy to make the world a safer better place for the youth in America.
Cyrus has attempted to keep his political preferences quiet during the most recent election cycles but endorsed President Barack Obama in 2012. Cyrus is one of the few Hollywood elites that have been willing to put politics aside to achieve positive change.
Of course, the leftists Twitterati responded with hundreds of nasty replies attacking the character of the first lady and blasting Cyrus for being willing to speak positively about anyone residing in the White House.
