It’s taken her a year, but Melania Trump is really tackling this whole cyberbullying thing. She’s holding a meeting with executives from social media and other tech companies like Facebook, Twitter and Snap, so that should solve the problem.
Major announcement: If any of the executives meeting with Melania Trump challenge her on her husband’s tweeting habit, I will give them one entire United States dollar.
You know, tweets like this one about Morning Joe’s Mika Brzezinski, claiming she came:
…to Mar-a-Lago 3 nights in a row around New Year’s Eve, and insisted on joining me. She was bleeding badly from a face-lift. I said no!

As CNN reported, Trump did have a conversation with Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough, and:
For the record, photos from Mar-a-Lago do not show any blood or bandages on Brzezinski’s face.
Or executives might ask Melania about this Trump tweet attacking his own attorney general for not prosecuting his former political opponent:
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!

Or the one attacking a local union leader for speaking up about Trump’s false campaign promises. Or ones like Trump’s December tweet taunting Andrew McCabe with the prospect of losing the pension he worked for over decades … just months before Trump had McCabe fired days before he was eligible for the pension.
If Melania Trump wants to talk about cyberbullying, she should be confronted with the influence coming from the top—and from her own family. The social media executives meeting with her to talk about cyberbullying will have the perfect chance to do that. And the rest of us will take her efforts seriously the day she holds a televised meeting with her husband to berate him over his Twitter habits, or posts a YouTube video of herself snatching his phone out of his hands and smashing it to bits.
