‘Stand By Your Man’: Melania Backs Up Hubby’s Sexist Tirade, Despite Anti-Cyberbullying Campaign

Two weeks.

That’s how long it took before the calls for civility eroded into a wistful memory. Okay, two weeks and one day. It was June 14 when a gunman shot up a congressional baseball practice, and suddenly the Right was all about rainbows and sunshine. Republicans were ready to make nice. Not really, of course. But that was the narrative. It fit perfectly with First Lady Melania Trump’s new efforts to combat cyberbullying.

Donald Trump is not a fan of narratives, I guess.

Thursday morning, the Commander-in-Tweet probably blistered his poor tiny thumbs firing off a misogynistic rant in another of his early morning tantrums those of us tasked with following him on Twitter unfortunately see first. Reacting to an unfavorable segment on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, the actual President of the United States tweeted:

So much for stopping bullies.

In less than ten minutes, Trump demolished both the GOP effort to look like the good guys and any credibility Melania may have had in fighting online bullying. Why? Because while she could have pointed out that his disgusting, sexist attack was a prime example of exactly what she hoped to eradicate, she sent out her “communications director” instead:

As the First Lady has stated publicly in the past, when her husband gets attacked, he will punch back 10 times harder.

Because that’s exactly how you combat bullying, right? It’s a sharp break from Melania’s comments in Pennsylvania just days before the election:

We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.

We’re all faced with choices every day. We can do the right thing, even though it’s hard, or we can take the easy way out. It seems like everyone who’s ever touched TrumpCo with a ten-foot pole makes the wrong choice every time.
