After President Trump mocked MSNBC host Mika Brzezinski in graphic terms, Jake Tapper had a (not-so-)serious question: what’s the deal with Melania Trump’s anti-bullying initiative?
This reminds me: how is @FLOTUS’s campaign against cyber-bullying going? https://t.co/X4xmyreGLH— Jake Tapper (@jaketapper) June 29, 2017
After last November’s election, the first lady said that she wanted to work on combating bullying – a statement that drew chortles from pundits who pointed out her husband’s penchant for going after his enemies on Twitter.
A spokesman for Melania Trump said that she stood by her husband’s statement, despite her feelings about bullying. “When her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder,” the spokesperson said.
Trump targeted Brzezinski and her co-host and fiance Joe Scarborough in two early morning tweets, making fun of Brzezinski for supposedly having a face-lift. The couple visited the president’s seaside Mar-a-Lago resort before Trump’s inauguration.
