Donald Trump’s youngest son, Barron, isn’t the only member of his family who’s at the receiving end of cruel abuse, especially on social media. His wife, Melania Trump, is constantly being mocked by Trump haters who fail to realize that just because they disagree with him, it doesn’t mean they simply have to insult his wife. This is particularly important because let’s be honest, Melania never said or did something that would harm those people who abuse her.
Besides online trolls, there are also celebrities (who suddenly find politics interesting) who openly attack the First Lady. For example, Chelsea Handler, a so-called comedian, participated in Women’s March because she appreciates ladies, while at the same time taking the liberty to mock another woman. Do you see any logic in this? Handler said she doesn’t respect Melania because she can barely speak English, thus humiliating her both as a woman and because she’s an immigrant (just like Handler’s ancestors were in the first place). Little does Ms. Chelsea know that First Lady of United States speaks not only English, but Slovene, Italian, German, and French eloquently.

While tame in silent in nature, Mrs. Trump doesn’t plan to stand still and let insults come one after another. She’s planning to fight back.
Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen told Page Six: “Shame on Chelsea Handler for attacking our first lady in such a despicable manner. Don’t be fooled by her accent. Melania is bright and articulate. To be clear, our first lady speaks multiple languages, I believe five. How many languages do you speak, Chelsea?”
Melania Trump is close to finalizing her very own team to manage constant social media attacks. Her chief strategist is former Vogue staffer and Met Ball organizer Stephanie Winston Wolkoff — who also masterminded Trump’s inauguration events with Tom Barrack.
