Brennan says he's considering legal action against Trump's move, stating the obvious on Meet The Press about POTUS having yanked his clearance to intimidate current and former government officials. "Most children are more aware of the benefits and pitfalls of social media than some adults, but we still need to do all we can to provide them with information and tools for successful and safe online habits".

Her signature "be best" campaign for public decorum has been largely overshadowed by her husband's daily insults and public hectoring. "It can be used in many positive ways, but also can be destructive and harmful when used incorrectly", she said.

Melania Trump talked up the importance of teaching children positive cyber habits Monday on the same morning that her husband sent tweets deriding current and former US officials, including one message referring to a former Central Intelligence Agency director as a "political hack".

Social media spoke up to criticize her "hypocrisy" and made some amusing comparisons, wondering how she could condemn cyber bullying while President Trump has repeatedly posted insulting messages on Twitter against his critics.

"It is exactly what she wants it to be, and has been a success", Mrs. Trump's communications director Stephanie Grisham said. "She is well aware of the criticism, but that will not deter her from doing what she feels is right", Grisham said.

After the first lady's speech, President Trump was back on Twitter, calling John Brennan "the worst CIA Director in our country's history".

Last week he launched a scathing attack on former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman over her new-tell all book which lashes the president, writing: 'When you give a crazed, crying lowlife a break, and give her a job at the White House, I guess it just didn't work out.

"By listening to children's ideas and concerns, I believe adults will be better able to help them navigate this often-difficult topic", she added. "In addition to sharing their 15 beliefs for how to be healthy and safe online, they each showed me individual projects representing their thoughts and ideas on what responsible behavior means to them", she said as she encouraged other companies to establish similar programs for children. He said one in five children experience bullying, and that 16 per cent of children now are victims of cyberbullying.
