Liberals are out in full force online to mock Melania Trump over a speech she gave earlier today highlighting what her goals as First Lady would be.
The Hollywood Reporter described Melania’s words as “so vapidly platitudinous and basic that if her speechwriters were cribbing from anyone, it was Dr. Seuss.”
Of course, if The Hollywood Reporter had chosen to make that statement about anyone else for whom English is a second language, liberals would’ve been up in arms.
By the way, Melania speaks 5 languages – how many liberals can do that?
But this is Donald Trump’s wife we’re talking about so apparently they feel it’s totally alright for them to join in.
One person – whose Twitter profile is littered with pro-Hillary tweets – even suggests Melania’s English speaking difficulties make her a ‘bedroom-only wife.’

Yeah, but it’s Donald’s supporters who are vile, right?

Yes what we need is a first lady with broken English. Learn the language @MELANIATRUMP

Ironically, if these people had actually listened past Melania’s accent, they would’ve heard her pledge to fight online bullying should she become First Lady.
“We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other,” said Melania.
Of course, The Hollywood Reporter just happened to leave that quote out. Perhaps they felt it was more pressing to discuss the fact that Melania did not provide the details of her prenup with Donald.
Hollywood Life also made a rather questionable argument against Melania’s intentions to end online bullying.
The outlet implies that Melania has no right to have such intentions because her husband “helped make bullying culture so prevalent these days.”
Yeah. Bullying is a 2016 thing.
Liberals also had a lot to say about Melania’s declaration that, should she become First Lady, she intends to use her platform to become “an advocate for women and children.”
"I will be an advocate for women and children" ~ Melania Trump
She just appropriated Hillary's entire adult life & her campaign as her own

Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize Hillary Clinton owned advocacy for women and children. Is that a Clinton Foundation thing?
Several tweeters also implied that Melania’s desire to be an advocate made no sense in light of who her husband is.
So Melania #Trump, wife of the biggest sexist in the USA, wants to be "an Advocate for Women and Children". Joke of the year?

Melania Trump says wants to be an "advocate" for other women – she can start by telling her husband to keep his hands to himself.
