First Lady Melania Trump officially launched her campaign against cyber bullying this week, and the co-hosts of “The View” were torn on whether she’s the best spokesperson for that kind of message.
“I don’t think the irony is lost on her,” argued Sara Haines. “I think she’s using her voice specifically for that cause for a reason. If it were my husband, you can’t trash him on a show and say, ‘You’re right, he’s such a jerk,’ and then go home.”
“I don’t think she’s the right messenger for cyber bullying because she can’t seem to control it in her own home,” she said.
“Can you control your husband?” Haines replied.
“Yes. Yes I can,” Hostin shot back. “She’s the wrong messenger for cyber bullying, but she’s the wrong messenger for everything almost because of his behavior. She can’t be involved in the #MeToo movement. She can’t be involved in ‘let’s get fit’ because the man ain’t fit. There are all these things she can’t be involved.”
“I just want people to cut her some slack because she’s probably having a really rough time right now,” McCain said. However, when the same moment came for Hillary Clinton, the GOP didn’t cut her any slack.
