Melania Trump, after nearly two years at the White House, still doesn’t seem to understand what being a first lady is all about. So far, she’s unveiled her signature initiative, #BeBest, against bullying but doesn’t seem to have done much work on it other than a trip to Africa for some model-type photo shoots.

In an interview with ABC News, in which Melania cluelessly asserted that she’s the “most bullied person in the world,” the first lady also insisted that Trump’s numerous extramarital affairs are unconcerning to her.
‘I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do…It is not concern and focus of mine.’
Someone may want to ask her to speak to Trump’s supporters, who bully Hillary Clinton on Twitter daily with criticism of her divorce her husband while she was first lady over his affair with Monica Lewinsky.
I have no respect for Hillary Clinton. She is guilty of so many high crimes how she has not been indicted I have no idea but the govt eventually got the Teflon Don and we will get her I have no doubt and her womanizing cheating scandalous husband Bill

She may also want to speak to her husband about this “bullying,” considering that he’s encouraged it by blaming Secretary Clinton personally for her husband’s affair, retweeting comments like “If Hillary Clinton can’t satisfy her husband, what makes her think she can satisfy America?”
As first lady, Hillary Clinton was not only expected to answer questions about this, she was blamed for the affairs. She was too aggressive, a feminist unable and unwilling to meet her husband’s sexual needs, and too manly to keep her husband from straying. During her run for the presidency in 2016, those questions continued and the criticism grew even louder.
Poor Melania is not the “most bullied person,” especially not while she criticizes Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, who testified that she was once sexually assaulted by Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, and Dr. Ford and her family are unable to return home due to death threats.
Yet her husband made Bill Clinton’s affairs a major campaign issue when he ran against Hillary.
Anyone seeing the pattern here? The hypocrisy?
“Trophy wife defends worthless, cheating husband because of valuable pre-nup” would be a better headline.

She also doesn’t seem to understand that, as first lady and as a mother, she serves in a position to be a role model for others. Accepting Trump’s bullying, especially of women and especially of women he’s had affairs with, contradicts her desire to send an anti-bullying mes
sage. She will be asked about this and will be expected to answer how she feels her husband is as an example to Americans everywhere, as well as to her son.
