People have risen up against Melania Trump after she said in an interview yesterday that she is the most bullied person in the world.
While talking to ABC‘s Tom Llamas on Thursday during a solo trip to Africa, Melania Trump said, “I could say I’m the most bullied person on the world.” When asked if she really believed that was true, she said, “One of them, if you really see what people saying about me.”
Trump said this bullying is what enticed her to start the Be Best initiative, especially considering the effects of social media on her son, Baron.
She explained, “We need to educate the children of social-emotional behavior, so when they grow up, they know how to deal with those issues. That’s very important.”
Since her statements have aired, social media users have gone in on the First Lady, citing countless examples of times when Melania’s husband was the person to bully others.
“Oh, quit crying @FLOTUS. Your husband has done more bullying than anyone on the planet and you’ve done next to nothing to push back on it,” one person wrote.
Another said, “Melania Trump thinks she’s ‘the most bullied person in the world’. Michelle Obama was literally called a ‘monkey’ and an ‘Ape’. Some people even said that she was a man, who murdered Joan Rivers to cover up her sex change. Michelle never complained a SINGLE TIME!”
“Classy First Lady Michelle Obama and Madam President Hillary Clinton were the most bullied but they weren’t whining… Get over yourself Melania. President Obama was criticized and attacked as well, but you don’t hear him whining like you and your husband Trump,” yet another said.
“Did this over privileged shrew, this racist queen of the birthers, have the audacity to say she’s the ‘most bullied person in the world?’ You supported your husband in trying to delegitimize the first black POTUS, @FLOTUS, you gets no darn sympathy.” another one angrily wrote.
Another one narrated, “Trump calls STILL calls Hillary ‘Crooked Hillary’. She’s been called a murderer & a criminal. The GOP has spent over 25 years & millions of dollars investigating her. ‘LOCK HER UP!’ is chanted at trump rallies. But sure, Melania is the most bullied.”
One social media user pointed out, “If Michelle Obama had done x-rated photo shoots before becoming First Lady, we’d never hear the end of it from Republicans. With Melania Trump, nobody brings it up ever, nor do we share the photos, ever. And they’re everywhere. But she’s bullied. Republicans are snowflakes.”
“Melania Trump said that she is one of the most bullied people in the world, in an interview with ABC News. ‘But then,’ she continued, ‘I knew he was a bully when I married him’,” another one said.
One angrily said, “Melania trump, living with the most notorious bully in the world, says she’s the most bullied person in the world. If you sleep with a shark, don’t be surprised when you wake up with your arm chewed off.”
One angrily wrote, “While Trump is busy meeting with Kid Rock, Kanye West and Jim Brown and Melania is complaining she’s ‘the most bullied person on the world’ victims of Hurricane Michael in Florida are struggling to survive.”
“Melania Trump just said that she is the ‘most bullied person in the world’. Her statement reveals both her privilege and ignorance as the most bullied people in the world are the children her husband separated and the women, people of color and LGBTQ people his policies threaten,” another one said.
“Melania Trump says she’s one of the most bullied people in the world, after visiting these African countries: Egypt-female genital mutilation still occurs; Ghana-1 of 3 women experience domestic violence; Kenya-1% of women own land in their name; Malawi-sexual violence is common,” yet another wrote.
Another one wrote, “Melania Trump spoke out today about the ‘unimaginable evil of abducting children and keeping them in cages’. Haha, kidding, kidding! She said ‘I’m the most bullied person in the world’.”
Melania has not yet spoken out about the rebuttal to her statements.
