Melania has been quiet this election season. I just assumed she was taking care of Trump the Youngest and the Trump household which seems like a full-time job. Today, she gave a speech in Pennsylvania and made clear one of her priorities should she become First Lady:
‘Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough,’ she told the crowd. ‘It would be one of the many purposes of my work if I am privileged enough to become your first lady,’ she said of making social media safe again.
This is a somewhat amusing first priority. Will she take over her husband’s Twitter account, for example?
Here’s Mitt Romney reading mean tweets with Jimmie Kimmel, one from Donald Trump:
There’s no question that more civility in anonymous media would be a welcome change. Melania also mentioned fighting against cyber bullying amongst young people.
Mean old people are exempt.
