This little girl was not thrilled to meet Donald Trump, and the photo is going viral
The name Amariyanna “Mari” Copeny should be familiar to you. Perhaps you know the incredible, change-making 9-year-old activist a bit better as “Little Miss Flint.”

Mari, or Little Miss Flint, came to national attention after she penned a letter to President Obama, alerting him to the actions she is taking in her hometown of Flint, Michigan to combat the horrific public health crisis. As you absolutely should already know, the water supply in Flint, Michigan was contaminated by lead in 2014 — and the government tried to sweep it under the rug.

Queen Mari wrote to Obama, telling him:
“I am one of the children that is affected by this water, and I’ve been doing my best to march in protest and to speak out for all the kids that live here in Flint.”

And when she asked the President to come meet with the community in Flint, that’s exactly what Obama did — and she could not contain her excitement.

That’s definitely not what Mari looked like when she met somehow-Presidential candidate Donald Trump yesterday — and, as noted by BuzzFeed, the internet is satirizing the moment perfectly.

Trump visited Flint yesterday, and people can’t help but compare Mari’s meetings with both men.

Twitter’s takedown of Trump is on point, as per usual.

This is not what a queen deserves.
Poor Little Miss Flint. I don't think she knew that wearing the crown would subject her to this. pic.twitter.com/CpCwQyaTI6
