They just sink lower and lower! Both her supporters and opponents both saw alike First Lady Michelle Obama’s tweet commemorating Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a veiled encouragement for people to boycott President-elect Trump’s inauguration.
The tweet even ended with the initials of the first lady showing that she herself had sent the tweet!
Thinking of Dr. King and great leaders like @repjohnlewis who carry on his legacy. May their example be our call to action. -mo

While she is attending the inaugural on January 20th, many took this message as an encouragement for more to boycott the ceremony, since she says Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) should be an example and a call to action.
Many on social media commented on the apparent insult:
Subtweeting those who want to boycott the Inaugural there https://t.co/JoxYmgUWXF

A “subtweet” is Twitter parlance for a tweet that is a pointed, passive aggressive message to a person without naming them directly
We are personally disgusting by this. At least Melania will have some grace and beauty!
