Melania Trump doesn’t have a great track record when it comes to public speaking. Her speech Thursday at a Pennsylvania campaign rally ― her first solo event of the election cycle ― didn’t go swimmingly either.

The wife of Donald Trump talked about her childhood in Slovenia, her advocacy for women and children, and, most notably, bullying. She said that if she became first lady, “one of [her] main focuses” would be online bullying ― because social media, “like anything that is powerful, it can have a bad side.”

If you’re choking on your tea right now, wait until you read what Twitter had to say about this anti-bullying stance, which Melania’s notoriously vitriolic husband doesn’t seem to share.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liarrampant xenophoberacistmisogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims ― 1.6 billion members of an entire religion ― from entering the U.S.
