First Lady Melania Trump is tired of being made to look like a fool by her own husband. Most recently, president Donald Trump has practically forced his wife into hiding amid his numerous sex scandals and exposed affairs. However, Trump’s humiliation of Melania began a long time ago.
As soon as Melania announced her campaign against cyberbullying, Trump ruined it before she could even start. Melania and her goal to protect children from internet trolls are now forever overshadowed by the fact that her husband is the biggest online bully of them all. But this week, she finally got him back.
On Tuesday, Melania spoke at an event with technology leaders and addressed the criticism of her cyberbullying campaign in relation to her husband’s behavior. Fully acknowledging that Trump was the reason why she wasn’t being taken seriously, Melania vowed to forge ahead regardless and continue standing up for her beliefs. She said:
“I’m well aware that people are skeptical of me discussing this topic … but it will not stop me from doing what I know is right. I’m here with one goal: helping children in our next generation.”
While it may be hypocritical for Melania to stand against cyberbullying while her husband continues to behave like an unleashed tyrant on Twitter, this is one of the rare moments where she has taken a position against him and called him out, even if only indirectly. You can watch this powerful moment below:

We can only hope that one day Melania’s campaign will include her husband, if the Trump family even lasts that much longer in the White House.
