Melania Trump’s Trying to Make Cyber Bullying Her Thing
When a new First Lady takes office next to her husband, it is basically assumed that she will take up a few humanitarian causes to focus her energy and prominence on.
For example, Michelle Obama took up youth wellness as one of her causes. She helped to start initiatives for healthier lunches in schools, and programs to get kids more active. First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt focused her efforts on civil rights for African Americans and the rights of American workers.
So, as the only possible First Lady involved in this election, of course Melania has started to consider what her causes might be. While giving her first speech since the horrendous occasion where she plagiarized Michelle Obama during her speech at the Republican National Convention, Melania seemingly has set her eyes on the prize: cyber-bullying.
Here’s what Melania said yesterday in Pennsylvania:
“Technology has changed our universe. But like anything that is powerful it can have a bad side. We have seen this already. As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words — even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile. They hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their life hard and forces them to hide and retreat.”
“Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially for children and teenagers,” she continued. Well, we have some suggestions for combating cyber-bullying for Melania if she were to become First Lady.
First of all, if she thinks our culture is “too mean,” she should really look at her husband first to solve the problem.
Here are just a few of my fav Trump tweets that, if he weren’t her husband, Melania might describe as “too mean”.
Obama is, without question, the WORST EVER president. I predict he will now do something really bad and totally stupid to show manhood!

.@ariannahuff is unattractive both inside and out. I fully understand why her former husband left her for a man- he made a good decision.

“We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other,” Melania continued, hella hypocritically.
Another problem with Melania’s speech is that she allegedly plagiarized again, but this time from one of Donald’s exes, Marla Maples. Although she didn’t plagiarize as much content as she did the first time, it still appears that she stole a line from one of Marla’s interviews.
When she was talking about growing up in Slovenia during her speech, Melania said, “America meant, if you could dream it, you could become it.”
During a 2011 interview, Marla Maples said of her own childhood, “I believed if you could dream it, you could become it…”
It was pointed out by Yoni Brander on Twitter, and he says that although the quote looks like just a variation of a popular euphemism written by William Arthur Ward, “If you can imagine it, you can create it. If you can dream it, you can become it,” he says it’s still possible she plagiarized.
While there is not statement from Melania on the alleged plagiarism, we can’t wait until next Tuesday to find out if she gets to lead an actual crusade against cyber-bullying!
