Melania Trump spoke out against people who bully others on social media during a speech in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, Nov. 3 (video below).
Melania told the audience that she would become an advocate for women and children, if she becomes the first lady, and then scolded social media bullies, notes Talking Points Memo:
As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words, even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile. They are hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their lives hard and can force them to hide and retreat. Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers.
It is never okay when a 12-year-old girl or boy is mocked, bullied or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground, and it is absolutely unacceptable when it's done by someone with no name hiding on the Internet. We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.
On Oct. 23, The New York Times listed 282 times that Melania's husband, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, has insulted people, places and things with his Twitter account.
Donald has insulted numerous women, including: actress Molly Sims ("a disaster"), NBC journalist Katy Tur ("incompetent"), former co-host of "The View" Nicolle Wallace ("a disaster"), Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg ("her mind is shot"), Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake ("a joke"), former Miss Universe Alicia Machado ("disgusting"), former Miss Universe Paulina Vega ("hypocrite") and many more.
During her speech, Melania may have also plagiarized a line from a book written by one of Donald's ex-wives.
Yair Rosenberg, a writer for TabletMag.com, tweeted: "Melania just plagiarized Trump's second wife Marla Maples. Here's the only Google results for 'if you could dream it, you could become it.'"
The last time that Melania gave a speech was at the Republican National Convention in July when she reportedly plagiarized parts of First Lady Michelle Obama's Democratic National Convention speech from 2008.
