At what point does irony stop being funny and start being depressing?
Melania Trump, wife of a proud bully, resurfaced to give a rare speech yesterday, The Daily Beast reports. Addressing a crowd in Pennsylvania, she pledged to focus on putting an end to bullying if her husband is elected.
"Our culture has gotten too mean and too violent," she said. "It is never ok when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground and it is unacceptable when it's done by someone with no name hiding on the internet."
It's not OK for 12-year-olds to get bullied on the playground, but you know what? It's also not ok when adults bully other adults online, or do things like grab women by the p***y and brag about it; Melania's husband, presidential nominee Donald Trump, has done all of these things, and unapologetically at that.
Melania went on to somberly address how sad it is when kids and teenagers are mocked for their "looks or intelligence," having apparently forgotten about the times her husband called a woman a "fat piglet" and called a former Miss Universe "Miss Piggy" and gave her racist nicknames.
Unsurprisingly, Melania's stance has been met with outright disbelief by many, who couldn't help pointing out the irony of it all via Twitter.
If you're looking to put an end to bullying Melania, here's a suggestion: start at home.
