Melania Trump wore an absurd dress to talk about ‘bullying’ at the United Nations

Wednesday afternoon, I spent several pleasant hours at the gym, happily watching several televisions as I walked and biked. CNN was showing live coverage of Melania Trump’s big address in front of a United Nations luncheon but all I could really see was her absurd Delpozo dress, which retails for about $3000. For someone who purports to know a lot about fashion and photography, surely Melania knows how her clothing is going to look on camera, especially if she knows she’s going to be mostly photographed from the waist up? The sleeves are telling me “let them eat cake.” The sleeves are telling me “I’m a trophy wife and an idiot and I am just saying words right now.”

As it turns out, Melania really was just saying words. Our dear Melania decided that this was the best time to launch her anti-bullying campaign, the same one she previewed during the election, when her husband was bullying women, Hispanic people, black people, disabled people, other Republicans and more. Here’s the video:

She looks and sounds terrified, like she was deathly afraid that her husband was going to storm into the room and bully the sh-t out of her. She said, in part:

“It remains our generation’s moral imperative to take responsibility for what our children learn. We must turn our focus right now to the message and content they are exposed to on a daily basis — social media, the bullying. When we join together as parents caring for children, whether they live in our own families, across the street, across the nation, or across the globe, we claim our responsibility to the next generation to ensure they are prepared to accept the torch of leadership for the world of tomorrow….The most important and joyous role I ever had is to be a mother to a young son… We must teach each other the values of empathy and communication … kindness, mindfulness, integrity and leadership, which can only be taught by example.”

Insert giant eyeroll. God, I miss Michelle Obama. Here are some tweets about Melania’s stupid speech:

    Melanie looks like someone hollowed out a giant Peeps and stuck her in it.

    The drumps, everyone of them, are so incompetent and blind to how to be leaders on the world stage.

  2. Nicole says:

    I legit do not want to hear one thing she says on this “campaign” ever again in life. Not that I even watched this speech as I avoid all speeches done by this administration and go straight to the articles.
    But yea start with your husband that threatened violence against HRC yet again on twitter.

    • Esmom says:

      Truly, what a joke to give her a platform. I can’t think of more a more hollow, meaningless gesture than this speech. Does she not know the irony of a sentence like this: “We must turn our focus right now to the message and content they are exposed to on a daily basis — social media, the bullying.”

      I think I’d be weeping if I wasn’t so numb.

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:

        Remember that the Trumps thing is to accuse others of doing what THEY are guilty of? He’s not racist it’s Barack Obama and other POC’s that is racist. He is not a crook it’s HRC that’s a crook . Despite him being sued over and over again for not paying people after they provide him a service or his shady “businesses”

        They are using the psychological defense mechanism of ‘projection’.

        Definition: Projection is the misattribution of a person’s undesired thoughts, feelings or impulses onto another person who does not have those thoughts, feelings or impulses.

      • AnnaKist says:

        Aaah. Is THAT why he got sued so many times? OK, long story coming up…
        We have an old and very rich bastard property developer down here who does the same. He contracts people to do work for him, doesn’t pay them, and when they dig their heels in, ties them up legally, either to the point of bankruptcy, or buying up their company for next-to-nothing. Either way, they’re ruined. My brother, with a successful commercial roofing business, was contracted to do a job for this bloke, and true to form, didn’t get paid. After 3 months of chasing, my brother, deliberately in his work clothes, fronted up to his very posh and plush offices, and asked to see him. His private secretary said he wasn’t in, but my brother said he’d seen him go in not 10 minutes before. She got on the phone, and then told my brother he was busy. My brother said he’d wait. This to-ing and fro-ing went on for about 4 hours, and my brother refused to budge, saying he’d wait until her boss left and follow him home if need be. It was obvious he was hiding out. She went into big boss’s office to relay the message. After five minutes, big boss stuck his head out the door, looked at my brother, then at his PA and said, “Pay the c*** and get him out of here.” The reason he told us this was because this guy had asked my husband to work with his crew for an America’s Cup challenge. My husband was on his way to that office to sign contracts. My brother took a look at the contract and said it wasn’t beneficial to hubby, and warned him against doing business with this p-o-s.

        No surprises that this guy has since come out singing trumpalumpa’s praises, then…

      • ORIGINAL T.C. says:


        Yep, that’s exactly what Trump did. He would claim the work was shoddy and not worth paying for, then if sued tie them in court. This shameful POS got sued by the little girls who created a song and dance routine during the early parts of Trump’s campaign. I think they eventually gave up.

      • Otaku Fairy says:

        Right. As if her husband is a good role model for anybody.

      • jwoolman says:

        Original TC: And here is Stephen Colbert’s contribution to the Freedom Kids plight:

        If the link doesn’t work, search YouTube for

        Colbert freedom kids


        Colbert freedom grown-ups

        It includes a clip of the girls’ performance also, which does have to be seen to be believed. I would have thought Trump would have been delighted with the kids version.

    • Mermaid says:

      Is she trolling him? Is it a cry for help? Does she not understand how ridiculous she sounds talking about bullying when her husband is the biggest bully on the planet and a horrible role model for children? Infuriating!!!

  3. Alix says:

    I’m struggling for words for that dress. Can’t find ‘em.

  4. Chrissy says:

    LOL! I hope she sees herself in photos. Why would anyone want to look like a bubblegum pink Michelin Man? Also , why would anyone look to Melania Trump for words of wisdom? She sold her soul to marry the most bullying, misogynistic lying corrupt coward in America and, given her story, has zero gravitas. SMH

  5. Pandora says:

    This poor lady has no platform.

  6. LadyMTL says:

    Three grand to look like she’s been swallowed by a giant piece of bubblegum? Ugh, no thank you, I’d rather wear my $30 off the rack stuff.

    As for the speech, I couldn’t bring myself to watch it. The hypocrisy is just too much.

    • Alexandria says:

      I know what you mean. I’ve stopped watching videos of the mafia family and the T. admin speaking. Too painful. I would also scroll past their photos and just read the article. Really hurts my sanity and I’m not even American. So I believe it when reports say there is an increased level of mental stress after he was elected by the electoral college. I can only stand looking at Barron.

  7. Catwoman says:

    Any woman who would sell her soul to the devil by marrying Trumputin needs to take a seat. No one gives a rat’s ass about your opinion on anything, Gold digger trophy wife.

  8. tifzlan says:

    Aside from the obvious hypocrisy issues, what exactly is she going to do to stop bullying? Like, Michelle Obama’s campaign had tangible processes and outcomes, but what exactly is Melania going to do as part of the campaign to stop bullying? Just saying things doesn’t automatically make it happen. So HOW does she plan to carry out this campaign? Has she said anything about that?

    • Alix says:

      I think the entire campaign consists of saying bullying is wrong and everybody should stop doing it. What, you want more?!?!

    • Esmom says:

      Really good point. I think we all know the answer to that.

    • Lolo86lf says:

      Hypocrisy and irony are running amok here. How can Melania possibly stand there and talk about bullying when her husband is the master of bullies out there. She looks miserable giving her speech that no one cares about coming from her. She has no credibility, she didn’t want to be First Lady to begin with. Why doesn’t Ivanka take over the anti-bullying campaign? She has more credibility and control over Donald Trump anyway.

    • Josephine says:

      I think her solution would be for the news media to say nothing but great things about her husband. Because I’m pretty sure when she’s talking about “bullying,” she’s talking about any and all critique of her husband. I think they share the delusion that he’s being bullied. By mainstream media. Or really, by anyone who thinks.

      I feel for her on some level, and can only hope that she actually picked this platform as a way to snub the husband. But I think that’s pure fantasy on my part.

      As for the dress, it’s funny, because she wears so many tailored outfits that would have worked. This might be the worst thing she has worn so far as first lady, and of course it’s the one that gets center stage.

  9. Prairiegirl says:

    She’s feeding the trolls with that dress! Don’t succumb!

  10. Brittney B says:


    She’s not even comparable; they’re not even on the same planet. Michelle respected her position and used it to make the world a better place. She oozed class and beauty and grace. She was more than we ever deserved.

  11. tracking says:

    She looked like a fool, on every level.

  12. grabbyhands says:

    Cripes. I’ve gotten nicer dresses from Old Navy for 25 bucks and worn them better. And I didn’t even have to be a lying, hypocritical witch to do it, either.

  13. Louise177 says:

    I don’t care about what she’s wearing but her campaign is ridiculous. Does she really think people will take her seriously? Or maybe it’s just window dressing to make it look like she’s doing something.

  14. Nancy says:

    She actually had propellers hidden in the ginormous sleeves of her pepto bismol horrendous dress and wheels affixed in her pepto bismol horrendous matching shoes so she could roll away and then take flight off of the stage for fear of apples being thrown at her for letting the lies of no bullying seep from her lying horrendous pepto bismol mouth. She should be exiled and forbidden to speak about any form of bullying while her husband texts her she’s hot, but not Ivanka hot.

  15. wood dragon says:

    Poor wretch. She’s in over her head so deep she might as well be at the bottom of the Laurentian Trench. The great abyssal.
    And she knows it.

  16. littlemissnaughty says:

    I don’t even care about the damn dress. Can we just let her live her life quietly as a lady of leisure? Let’s just write this one off and move on. So the USA don’t have a First Lady for a while, would that be so bad? There must be someone who can take over her events etc., because I don’t believe for a second she does ANY work behind the scenes.

    Let her take care of “Bah-ron” and her nails. And maybe the hair. Because I swear, the Trump name comes with a hair curse. EVERYONE in this family (save for the kid) has awful hair.

    • lightpurple says:

      Sure. But we get to choose where she lives. Somewhere that doesn’t cost us millions every week.

    • Beth says:

      Everywhere, people used to comment on what Michelle wore. There were meaner things said about her clothes than are being said about Milenias. Sorry,but being the FLOTUS is not a life of leisure where she can just take care of her child, nails and hair. Now that her husband is president, that leisurely life she once had, is now gone and always in public for people to see and talk about until he’s out of the WH. If she doesn’t like it, she can divorce him, but American taxpayers should not end up having to pay for her leisurely luxurious life at Trump Tower if it happens. Too bad for her

      • littlemissnaughty says:

        I wasn’t defending her. But at some point, you need to face facts. This woman is not cut out to be a First Lady. She just isn’t. And yeah, if she doesn’t work, her husband should be footing her bill. But she has no power so nobody’s fighting the good fight attacking her. Accepting the fact that the only First Lady right now is Ivanka is probably the only way to go at this point. Melania just isn’t capable. She POSED in heels and shades on her way to Texas. There is nothing here to work with, no basis for improvement. You can’t force her to divorce him either.

      • jwoolman says:

        She has the right to opt out of being FLOTUS. She just doesn’t know how to do that gracefully so she gets stuck in these situations for which she is not suited. Her orange husband puts pressure on her also. She did not marry a politician. This is not what she signed up for. The fact that Michelle Obama found a way to make the job work for her is totally irrelevant.

        If I were married to a guy who got elected President, I would have told him from the first day of his campaign that he was on his own, I have my own life to lead…. “Pretend you’re a bachelor, dear.” Really, we have no right to a twofer when somebody is elected President. The whole idea is sexist to the core. A guy married to the President wouldn’t be expected to be a twofer. If he wanted to be, fine. But it would be assumed that he has his own projects to pursue separate from his wife and also it would not be assumed that he is able and/or willing to do public speaking.

  17. WingKingdom says:

    How bizarre that the world has to pay attention to the third trophy wife of a C-list reality star.

  18. lightpurple says:

    She was too busy fighting with that teletubby costume yesterday morning to stop Orange Voldy from cyber-bullying Rand Paul, Hillary Clinton, and anyone who needs healthcare.

    The delivery of that ridiculous speech is hilarious. Somebody told her to read from more than one teleprompter so she’s changing direction after every sentence. This speech was for the spouses of other leaders. They must have been stunned into silence or stifling laughter.

    • frisbee says:

      Yeah I saw that photo and immediately had the teletubbies theme tune in my head, can’t get rid of it now but it’s better than trying to take in the drivel she and her husband are spouting forth.

    • Christin says:

      Now I’m envisioning a scene from Mean Girls, when T. Fey’s character asks for a show of hands for questions of who has been bullied by Regina George. That’s what Telly Melly should have done yesterday.

      “How many of you have bullied someone or been bullied?”

      “How many of you or your spouses have been bullied by my spouse?” The end.

      Could have saved a lot of time.

  19. happyoften says:

    The dress, while unfortunate, pales when compared to the offensiveness of her railing against online bullying, as her husband tweets out insults on the daily.

    If she had ANY self awareness, she would pick another “cause”. Online bullying is a problem. Wife of the bully in chief isn’t the best person to deliver that message. Is there anyone in this family not fully lodged up their own posterior?

  20. Merritt says:

    No one in that family knows how to dress.

  21. Citresse says:

    My first thought was Diana, Princess of Wales wedding dress style sleeves. The puffed sleeves in pink do no favours. But then if her speaking style hasn’t improved, the dress will keep them awake.

  22. cathy says:

    The dress is ugly, but if there were any real substance behind her speech noone would care. She’s making a speech prepared for her and trying to be relevant as the first lady. The whole thing is just a sham – the speech, the platform, the president…..

  23. HeatherAnn says:

    I can’t believe she’s our First Lady. My sisters and I call her Melanoma but that’s probably an insert to cancer.

  24. RBC says:

    The costume departmart at SNL have probably already copied that outfit and just waiting to do a fitting for whoever will portray Melania.

  25. Giulia says:

    “show me your civic lessons today and i’ll show you the civic leaders of tomorrow..”
    Thuggery 101?

  26. Onemoretime says:

    lol at Albert Brooks, he tweeted what we all are thinking!

  27. hey-ya says:

    …no different from the ‘just say no’ campaign which in the light of IranContra was just so so sad… nor the ‘lets move’ campaign by a clearly inappropriate person…

  28. Reef says:

    I like the dress. For a UN speech? No because it’s distracting. Front row at a fashion show. Yes.

    As for her platform, I honestly don’t know what to say. Does she have to have a platform? This admin has broken so many traditions already. She just doesn’t have the range. I feel so much second hand embarrassment when she has to do speaking engagements.

    • magnoliarose says:

      She has to earn her keep. Sorry but I don’t pay taxes for a “”"model”"” or her illegal freeloading parents to live in a house they don’t belong in for kicks. She needs to catch a damn clue or leave.
      Melania is a useless waste of space and time with zero intelligence, no taste or style or discernible purpose. The media handle her with kid gloves but I know what she was and what she still is, and she isn’t fit to sleep in the same room as any of the women who came before her. Not one.

      She’s the bully. I feel victimized by that ridiculous neon get up she is wearing.

  29. ArchieGoodwin says:

    Serious question: do the spouses of other leaders make speeches? Is it just the US?
    I don’t even know if Sophie is there. Last I saw she was in Toronto.

  30. Beth says:

    The $50,000 flowery coat she wore the summer was bigly bad, but this neon bubble gum dress is a tremendous disaster. A mess. #sad

  31. Tiffany says:

    Wow, she truly dresses like someone who thinks a person will money should dress.

  32. llak says:

    why do UN give platform to these wives of world leaders and royals, are they any more qualified just cause they slept with someone important?

  33. HK9 says:

    Those sleeves are bullying my eyes.

  34. Mazzie says:

    I like Delpozo but it’s not really a ‘wear to a major political event’ designer. It’s more ‘wear to a big party’ designer. Also that bright pink, which I love as a colour, is just blinding. Context, FLOTUS, context.

  35. SoulSPA says:

    This whole speech situation is two middle fingers, at least, to the public: first of all, the sheer hypocrisy of the subject discussed, not that it is not important because it is, but the contrast with her husband’s behaviour. The nerve! I am lost for words!!!!!!!! The second middle finger is represented by that dress. People talk about that awful dress, don’t they. A distraction tactic, maybe?
    And I think that Melania is a victim of emotional abuse. It would be so difficult if not impossible to escape her marriage. She is a victim and in my opinion she deserves sympathy.

  36. Juliaoc says:

    Does it look like she’s changed her face and/or makeup to look more like Ivanka?

    • Belle Epoch says:

      JULIAOC something is different! It’s hard to tell from a couple of pictures but I would say Yes. It also could be that her eyes are open instead of catlike. She should have done something with her hair, but how is a peasant from Slovenia supposed to know that?

      I think she chose this topic because her son gets bullied at school. That’s ALL she thought of. Someone should have told her to focus on beautifying America.

  37. Glisten says:

    The dress ugh no. Melania usually, in my opinion, is pretty spot on with her clothes. That was an obvious miss though, agree with you all. Liked the color myself but that fit and design? Yikes. Peeps and Pepto comments made me laugh. Thanks. What bothers me more though is I went to the UN school (Ecole International) in NYC for my middle school and start of high school. I have kept up with many of my friends from there that have worked in the UN for couple decades since. They have worked tirelessly to prepare themselves to be able to some day give speeches and present themselves to the world at the UN on important and urgent topics. I have cousins and family members as well that have done the same. But the Trump family circus comes to town and they have to give up their places to speak for Ivanka couple days ago. Then she came back yesterday and they politely told her no. She had a fit, lol. Least Melania was scheduled. Sheez. The family is really annoying me.

  38. IlsaLund says:

    Somewhere Trump supporters are orgasmic about what a beautiful classy intelligent lady Melania is and what a breath of fresh air it is to have a real (I.e. white) First Lady again.

    God, I miss Michelle Obama.

    • Glisten says:

      I so miss Michelle, and Obama too! Wish I could just take take a nap and wake up and they would all be back now and everything would be alright. Trust me. Obama will be talking more soon. Think he did it he other day and some trashed him for never shutting up. Really? He has spoken out only a couple times since he left office! Trump has some fixation with him, gone on forever, but oh yeah Obama AND MICHELLE are getting ready to speak up alright. May be a couple days, couple weeks for Michelle, but she will be back. We need to support her and encourage her, the media has been wretched about her and her daughters.

    • Juls says:

      You are right about Trump supporters, Ilsalund. One of these knuckledraggers recently told me that he thinks Melania is the most intelligent FL we’ve ever had. It was a scene. I literally fell out of my chair and almost died because I was laughing so hard that I couldn’t breathe.

    • Erica_V says:

      President Obama spoke at a conference yesterday in NYC – Lily Allen has snipits of it on her IG and it took 1 – 15 second clip to have me in tears over what we have vs what we had or could’ve had. The way he speaks, so professional and inclusive and calming. Intelligent and thoughtful. His smile is so charming, warm & genuine.

      Dump could never. And he hates Obama so much because he KNOWS he could never.

  39. Jerusha says:

    I didn’t know melania trolled pbs for fashion tips.

    And, hey melania, maybe start the antibullying campaign with the Toddler-in-Chief.

    • Kitten says:

      LOL Twitter is so good for the trolling of this administration. I don’t have a Twitter account but I love to go on there and screen-shot clever tweets and re-post etc.

      OT and I know the thread is dead but thanks to you, Tiffany, BNA fan and others for replying to Joanie yesterday. My comment was never “deleted” but yes I edited it from “No American is in a position to call another country’s leader a lunatic while simultaneously defending Trump” after I learned that Joanie isn’t even from the United States, which explains a lot about her comments re: 45.

  40. robyn says:

    There’s an old saying “do as I say, not as I do”. The words out of Melania’s mouth mean nothing when she stands by “locker room talk” and much more … not to mention she’s married to one of the biggest verbal abusers in the cyber world.

    As for clothes: Melania usually wears style rather well but whoever suggested this nightmarish pink frock for the UN must really hate her.

  41. Fiorucci says:

    Trump is an idiot (maybe not 100% of the time but mostly) vulgar, rude, and verballly agressive. But if you read about online bullying even his rude fat shaming (ironically) twitter beef with Rosie is nothing compared to the tragedy of children bullying other children to suicide. I guess trump is a bad example for these online bullies but he doesn’t seem to have a lot of weak or meek targets. Hes dangerous to the world but on a personal level what online bullies do to one person is much more damaging (though much less dangerous to the world.) obviously Rosie is fine, she’s more popular than him still. If he was telling a fat poor woman or gay person with no social capital to kill herself in a private message that would be comparable to what online bullies do.

    • robyn says:

      You’re right that the bullying aspect, itself, is very serious and shouldn’t be ignored. It’s a very important topic coming from a hypocritical spokesperson in Melania, however. The meanness that drives vulnerable people to suicide is horribly real and sometimes we don’t know who these vulnerable people are. On a lesser scale, I’m sure Rosie was mightily effected by Trump’s shaming and hostility. She is human after all as are all the celebrities who are criticized and body shamed constantly online. But people laughed when Trump so crudely shamed Rosie … so society at large is complicit in the cruelty as well. When Rosie asked “What do I tell my children?” I think she was asking … how do you explain the blind eye we turn to bullying in this world.

    • Juls says:

      I don’t disagree with you Fiorucci, but Trump is setting an example, and bullying has intensified since his election. Which means even more innocent victims are being tormented, which will lead to more suicides. So I believe that Trump is responsible and complicit in online bullying all around. He is responsible for these deaths.

  42. weegie warrior says:

    I think this says more about th lack of integrity in th UN than anything else – why do we need to listen to spouses of world leaders? I dont go to my husbands workplace and he doesnt come to mine- why is this any different t has no relevancy.

  43. Monica says:

    She could’ve started her “anti-bullying” campaign by apologizing to the Jewish reporter who said she deserved the anti-Semitic attacks against her after writing an article about Melania. She’s such trash.

  44. nica says:

    No one in this family has any self-awareness.

  45. Lotta says:

    She is reading straight from the text on the two teleprompters on her left and right. She almost never looks at her audience and it makes her seem like a robot.

  46. terraS says:

    put lipstick on a pig …. this is especially clear on the first day she went to UN wearing suits with her hand in the pocket – empty suit enough everyone??
    what a joke our world is

  47. Heidi says:

    I didn’t bother to listen to the speech because all of my toenails are curled up already.

    My best guess: Melania does not even see a connection between Barron being bullied at school/online and what her husband is doing to others Every. Single. Day.

    Please go back to keeping your mouth shut, just standing there and showing off your expensive clothes and your frozen face.

  48. Heather says:

    Which country is she going to wipe off the map if the bullying doesn’t stop?

  49. Anastasia says:

    If the dress were purple, she’d look like Violet Beauregard in Willie Wonka’s chocolate factory.

    I hate that this is her issue. It’s a very serious issue and a very serious problem, but with her talking about it (albeit rarely), it seems to trivialize it. Just because she’s a Trump. The only thing Trumps take seriously are money and themselves.

  50. Veronica says:

    I can’t even comment on the speech because I’m distracted by her face. What is going on with her eyes??

  51. Anastasia says:

    Dear God. I watched it with the sound off for about a minute 30 and couldn’t take it. How incredibly awkward, like watching an 8th grader give their first speech.

  52. Radley says:

    The laziest and most disinterested First Lady ever continues to phone it in, optics be damned. Literally and figuratively.

    I could do without ever hearing from her. Hollow words from a shallow woman. I loathe this family. I hope Barron’s nanny and housekeeper are raising him right.

  53. adastraperaspera says:

    Best example of the Peter principle I have ever seen (“rising to the level of your own incompetence”). I will refrain from puns.

  54. Jaded says:

    Maybe she and that billionaire nutjob Betsy DeVos should team up to make anti-bullying courses mandatory in ALL schools instead of supporting vouchers for private, religious schools and ending the separation of church and state. It’s only 11:30…can I have wine now??

  55. Jane says:

    I recognize that mess Sophie Hunter wore a version with a hugh strain on it to the London Doctor Strange premiere.

  56. Soozee says:

    The sleeves look like the devil’s labia.

  57. phatypopo says:

    This reminds me of a recent episode of The Bold Type, where Jane discovers that a female politician wears absolutely ridiculous outfits when delivering bullshit, so as to distract from the bullshit. This can’t not be that, right?? THOSE SLEEVES

  58. holly hobby says:

    The color of that dress hurts my eyes. And what’s with the surprised look in photo #1? Bullying? Ha! She should train that baby that is living with her.

  59. Baltimom says:

    How is this way better than the last First Lady? Oh wait, yes, I forget. This one is white. Who cares if she can barely deliver a speech? And that her speech is completely tone deaf to the bullying her husband was doing AT THE SAME TIME! Do those two ever talk? Geez.

  60. Nibbi says:

    i really think the choice of platform is a sideways tactic to stifle dissent. trump has forever cried about how the media treats him, how ‘unfair’ it is, and personally goes after people who have slighted, mocked, or criticized him. IMO this is a moralizing message to the deplorables about how important it is to say only nice things about… this administration … online.

  61. why? says:

    That outfit has Ivanka written all over it. Melanie’s dress looks similar to the one that Ivanka wore when she was at the G20 leaders meeting, all that is missing are the big bows around the elbows. Ivanka’s job in the WH is leaking positive stories about her and her father and picking out her stepmother’s clothes.

    Melanie finally remembered her cyberbullying platform. It took her 9 months. Where was Melanie’s concern for cyberbullying when her husband cyberbullied Mika? Or how about when he retweeted that meme of him hitting Hillary with a golf ball and making her fall? Everything that she said during that speech was useless because her husband is the #1 cyberbully and she condones his behavior, justifying his attacks by saying that her husband strikes back 10 times harder when he is attacked. Her husband isn’t being attacked. People comment on his horrible behavior and then he gets mad.

      And how exactly is she supposed to call him out on such things without repercussions that can hurt her son? You know how he acts in public. I’m sure he is many times more abusive behind closed doors.

      She’s stuck with him until her son is old enough to be safe. He’s a typical malignant narcissist. I doubt very much that he revealed his true colors to her until the contract was signed and very likely after she became pregnant.

    She is so beautiful, looks great! I’m tired of the catty comments. She is such a beautiful woman!

    She looked like a cross between a pink Staypuff marshmallow man and a hot air balloon.

    The dress is stupid but all of this commentary about Melania being a trophy wife is deeply sexist.

    The color of that dress should be outlawed. It could cause seizures. It totally clashed with her skin tone and hair color. Her makeup was absolutely hideous. What was up with the ridiculous eye shadow? I have to think she was given really bad advice on how to style herself for her big moment at the UN. She usually dresses and wears makeup in fairly classic looks. Whose nonsense was this? I love how she just stared at the TelePrompTer reading each word so carefully and when she took a breath and looked at the camera it was the face and eyes of sheer terror. Ah ha ha!
