Melania Trump Is Very Upset By People Who Bully Others On The Internet

Source: huffingtonpost.com

Mrs. Trump wants to #stopbullying.


BERWYN, Pennsylvania ― Melania Trump returned from political exile on Thursday by making a rather eyebrow-raising claim: as first lady, she would combat bullying. That anti-bullying campaign, however, likely wouldn’t extend to her husband.

“Our culture has gotten too mean and too violent,” the wife of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told a crowd here in the suburbs of Philadelphia. “It is never OK when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is unacceptable when it’s done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.”

Am I living in the twilight zone here? I really don't know what to say (I am speechless at this and shaking my head) other than with all due respect to you Melania, please start with your husband.

6. I'm so sick of this projection by the Trump campaign.

Looks at what these assholes in the crowd had to say:


“I think she’s going to bring a class and dignity that we haven’t seen in the last eight years,” McFadden added. “She comes off to me as very honest and very sincere.”


The deplorables think Obama is classless but Trump has class. This is all code words for just saying Obama is black and they don't like that. Absolutely insane.

before moving back to California.

His wife is a Trumpista, too. Berwyn. That's too funny.
Four of their five kids are Dems.

I agree with Mrs. Trump, the 8 year old boy at the Republican rally yelling "Hang the Bitch" was deplorable.

you would think she would learn to speak English better after all these years in the US. I did. I spoke German, French and Urdu before coming to the US and I don't have an accent. It can be done!

While people aren't responsible for the acts of their spouses, you knowingly signed a pact with this demon when you were in your 30s and he was nearly 60.

Is your garish penthouse worth knowing your spouse is a psychotic, vindictive, racist, xenophobic, sexist liar and conveniently turning a blind eye?

You both make me ill.

45. I am deeply offended by Melania Trump

First of all, I am extremely offended by the blatant hypocrisy of her taking such a stance when her family has ridiculed, smeared and bullied innumerable people throughout this campaign. Why didn't she just go all the way and choose to make her platform about sexual assault against women. If you read my post correctly, my inference is that she does not grasp the disgusting implications of what she is saying and that whoever is writing this material for her cannot be doing
this in her best interest. If you are offended that I have pointed this out, then so be it. I find the entire Trump family disgusting.

You could easily have said everything you stated in your post without resorting to xenophobic slurs against her for being an immigrant. If you did, more people would interpret your posts the way you feel they should be interpreted. You're discrediting yourself.

35. It's not about Trump's victims for her

It is about how bullied *she* feels. Her body language is always that of the beauty queen who thinks she's doing us a favor by condescending to speak to us. The body held still and tense. The side-to-side head movement according to each section of the audience the favor of looking their way for an equal period of time. She's not worried at all about the people her husband targets. She's been reading the comments about her and feeling deeply aggrieved.

36. She always appears like she is posing for a model shoot

and is aware of how she photographs best. I don't get the feeling of condescending - I get the feeling she is feeling very uncomfortable.
Anyone with good self esteem would not find themselves in her situation - it's like she sold her soul to the devil for money.
