“She’s married to the biggest bully on the planet. Her silence about his bullying condones his actions.“
Melania Trump has been branded a hypocrite after she gave a speech condemning bullying. Talking at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, her comments were divisive given her husband’s notoriously pugnacious, bullish approach to politics.
“No child should ever feel hungry, stalked, frightened, terrorised, bullied, isolated or afraid, with nowhere to turn,” Trump said, according to the Washington Post. “We must teach each child the values of empathy… kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership which can only be taught by example.”
Donald Trump famously said a US television television presenter “was bleeding badly from a facelift”, has made crude remarks about women and also mocked a New York Times reporter with a disability, offensively imitating his movements.
“We must teach each child the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of the kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership which can only be taught by example,” said Trump. “By our own example, we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they will inherit.”
Her speech – which did not offer any methods in which she hoped to end bullying – drew criticism on social media.
