As tens of thousands take part in the "Women's March" in opposition to Donald Trump and the current state of American politics, First Lady Melania Trump decided to deflect attention away with more positive thoughts. In response, those who oppose the current administration wasted no time firing back.

Melania on Twitter

On the one-year anniversary of Donald Trump's inauguration, the second annual "Women's March" got underway in Washington, D.C., New York City, and other cities across the country. Since the election of the former host of "The Apprentice," opposition has only continued to grow, with Trump's approval rating remaining around 35 percent in the most recent round of polling.

The consensus among many Americans is that Trump harbors prejudice views that target various minority groups, including women, immigrants, and African-Americans. The most recent example stems from his remarks about Haiti, El Salvador, and countries in Africa being a "sh*thole." The "Resistance" movement responded to Trump's rhetoric and actions by coming together to march in protest of his inauguration anniversary, while the administration does their best to deflect. Following the latest news that Trump paid off an adult film star to keep quiet about their previous affair, "Fire and Fury" author Michael Wolff hinted during Friday's "Real Time with Bill Maher" that the president was currently cheating on his wife.

With drama hanging over the head of the White House, Melania Trump sent out a tweet on January 20 just as the "Women's March" kicked off.

Taking to her Twitter account on Saturday, Melania Trump did her best to ignore the issues surrounding her by posting a tweet about her time as first lady.

"This has been a year filled with many wonderful moments," Melania tweeted. "I’ve enjoyed the people I’ve been lucky enough to meet throughout our great country & the world!" she added, while attaching a picture of herself with a young male member of the military.

Instant reaction

Within minutes of her tweet, Melania Trump faced backlash from critics.

"And you did an amazing job with your Anti Cyber Bullying campaign. Thank you," Tony Posnanski tweeted with sarcasm.

"That guy you’re with is way hotter than Trump. I can see why you picked that picture," another tweet added. "Blink once if you need help," another sarcastic tweet stated. "You are no better than your husband. You both need to go. Do you at least spend time with Barron? Or are you to busy crying?" yet another Twitter user wondered.

"Re-tweeting a picture with a stranger instead of her husband?

HAHA," an additional tweet pointed out. "Have you met Stormy yet? I'm sure she'd love to sit down for a coffee with you," a Twitter user wrote in reference to the president's alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels.
