Lady Gaga: Melania Trump Is A Hypocrite For Bullying Remarks
Melania Trump is a hypocrite, according to Lady Gaga.
After the Republican nominee’s wife said she would make it her mission to tackle online bullying if she was the first lady, the award-winning singer said her words rang hollow because she is married to a bully.
.@MELANIATRUMP to say u will stand for “anti-bullying” is hypocrisy. Your husband is 1 of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.

“To say u will stand for ‘anti-bullying’ is hypocrisy,” Gaga tweeted at Melania. “Your husband is 1 of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.”
While speaking in Pennsylvania last week, Melania said one of her focuses as first lady would be to “find better ways to honor and support the basic goodness of our children, especially in social media.” (RELATED: Melania Trump: ‘Our Culture Has Gotten Too Mean And Too Rough’)
“We need to teach our youth American values; kindness, honesty, respect, compassion, charity, understanding, cooperation,” she said. “I do worry about all of our children. As we know, now social media is a centerpiece of our lives. It can be a useful tool for connection and communication. It can ease the isolation that so many people feel in the modern world.”
“Technology has changed our universe,” she continued.
“But like anything that is powerful, it can have a bad side. We have seen these already. 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 life 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 OK when a 12 year old girl or boy is mocked, bullied, or attacked. It is terrible when that happens on the playground.”
