Melania Trump will visit a Detroit middle school Monday as part of the nationwide "Week of Inclusion" and National Bullying Prevention Month, kicking off her anti-bullying campaign that she has said will be a focus of hers as first lady. ... "By our own example, we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they will inherit. ... It is our responsibility to take the lead in teaching children the values of empathy and communication that are at the core of kindness, mindfulness, integrity, and leadership."

Critics of the Trump presidency have called out the irony in the first lady pushing an anti-bullying agenda, given her husband's penchant for name-calling on Twitter. The majority of Americans have described President Trump himself as a "bully."

"Mrs. Trump is independent and acts independently from her husband," Stephanie Grisham, the first lady's communications director, told CNN.

Maybe "bully" has a different meaning in Slovenia? Like "hooker"?

Pay attention, this is "irony" in the truest sense of the word.

Eh, her storyline in this trump show is boring. They made her character's mission to stop bullying too obviously hypocritical. It really just seems forced and doesn't have much to do with the primary narrative about trumps' debt to putin.

Not really ironic. More like hypocritical.

Why is Melania coddling these little snowflakes?
If you get bullied it's because you're a loser.

Her campaign is not an error or mistake Trump told her to do this because he wants to screw with anti-bullying efforts.

She may as well be railing about fat POTUSes with bad hair.

Trump supporters are too stupid to even know what that word means.

It's called an Irony Meter.

Mine just pegged.

You may want to check yours and see if it is still working.

Oh, so that's why Melania is keeping Barron away from the White House and the President!

If Melania wants to set an example, roll up a newspaper and train Donnie to quit twitter.

Melania seems to be suffering from an irony deficiency.

There are actually two levels of irony here.

First is Melania being anti-bully while being married to a cartoon character of a bully.

Then there are the people who complain about Melania's. hypocrisy while they themselves name call and make up crap about her - largely by insulting her ethic background and engaging in negative stereotypes about women.

so the FBI will be paying her a visit, for threatening the BLOTUS.

If she wants to stop bullies she can start by holding a pillow over the face of the one she pretends to sleep with.

Melania should call Hillary and apologize for her husband. Some will not agree with me but then they approved of bullying when Hillary was the target. Hypocrites? Yes. You know who you are. It doesn't even seem to bother y'all that none of the charges they lodged against her ever resulted in an indictment nor that some of the things they accused her of (private email server) they are currently doing right now.

Don't worry; they're still trying.

"some of the things they accused her of (private email server) they are currently doing right now."

That is the conservative MO. They always accuse the left of exactly what they are doing in actuality.
- Fiscal irresponsibility
- George Soros buys elections but they ignore the Koch brothers
- Feelings over facts was coined by Newt Gingrich, yet they claim the left ignores objective facts
- Russian collusion is why they are trying to link HRC to this uranium nonsense

That's the problem Sully, she doesn't HAVE an "ethic background."

Yes, it triggered mockery. Well-deserved mockery, like, you literally can't make this stuff up, bwahahahahahaha mockery. What a joke the Republican Party has become, that a well-intentioned First Lady picks a cause, that her husband is the poster boy for, to speak out against. Cognitive dissonance apparently requires sanity.

Maybe, but we know for sure that being a nude model and a 'party girl' who married for money does not qualify one to talk to children about moral issues.
