As we reported last week, Melania Trump finally got started in earnest on her cyber bullying initiative on Tuesday.
In a White House State Dining Room meeting, the FLOTUS reportedly told top tech leaders she was looking for ways to help children who had sent her letters about being bullied on social media.
Great. But what apparently didn’t come up was Bully-In-Chief Donald Trump. A pool report quotes Melania as defending criticism of her taking on this particular cause by saying:
“I am well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing the topic. I have been criticized for my commitment to tackling this issue and I know that will continue, but it will not stop me from doing what I know is right. I am here with one goal: helping children and our next generation.”
Um. She’s making it sound like people don’t think she’s got what it takes. Like she’s the Rudy of cyber bullying prevention or some shit.
We don’t hear anyone criticizing her for her “commitment.” The word is “hypocrisy.”
After all, everything her husband has done in office has fanned the flames of divisiveness and racial tension.
He routinely bullies women, minorities, and even other world leaders (and Amazon execs now that we think of it) with childish, sometimes sexist and racist nicknames.
And throughout it all, throughout he bullying and the Birtherism, there’s Melania right by his side, bragging about how he hits back ten times harder.
But you go ahead and punch that straw man, girl. You’re so brave.
