The internet just can’t with Melania Trump.
The first lady hosted a luncheon at the UN General Assembly Wednesday where she spoke about protecting our children and teaching them about empathy and kindness. People on Twitter quickly reminded her about her husband and his cyberbullying ways.
Yes, it was a compelling speech urging the global community to support children and their rights and, in turn, ensure them a promising future. But the speech really focused on bullying, since that’s the first lady’s big platform.
“Nothing could be more urgent or worthy a cause than preparing future generations for adulthood with true moral clarity and responsibility,” she said during the address. “We must teach each child the values of empathy and communication … which can only be taught by example.”
We’re a bit confused — isn’t she married to one of the biggest bullies around?
Donald Trump literally just threatened North Korea, tweeted a violent GIF of him “attacking” Hillary Clinton, and name-calls like no one’s business. And that’s all in the past week.
Melania gave a speech at UN condemning bullying. Might have been more effective if her husband had not just threatened to nuke North Korea.

How Melaina’s UN Speech should have gone…
Melania- *breaks Donald Trump’s phone*
Melania- I have just ended cyber bullying.

Melania Trump condemned bullying at the U.N. today. She then looked at her husband, laughed, and said “I’m just kidding.”

Few things in this world are as painfully ironic as Melania Trump’s anti-bullying campaign. Ouch.

We’re all waiting for Melania to walk the talk on preventing bullying—starting with her own husband.
