Melania Trump, perhaps best known for promoting a racist birth certificate hoax on national television, was loudly booed in Baltimore today as she took the stage to give a speech on opioid awareness.

CNN Reporter Kate Bennett was on the scene, and described the booing as loud and substantial. As Bennett notes, Donald Trump has a history of insulting Baltimore, most recently calling the predominantly black city a "rodent infested mess." The feeling is mutual.

More via pool:
"As the press pooler with perhaps the most FLOTUS event coverage under my belt, I cannot recall another event where she was more negatively received. I believe it is also the first loud booing by an audience at a solo event with Mrs. Trump."
