In a stunning display of myopia, Melania Trump condemned social media for cyberbullying. She said:
“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. And it is absolutely unacceptable when it is done by someone with no name hiding on the Internet. We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.”
Mike T tweeted: “When Melania Trump says cyber-bullying is out of hand… girl, have you met your husband?”
Apparently not. She must have missed Ann Coulter’s latest book, “How to Talk to a Bully (if you must).” She must have missed her husband’s frequent bully boy tantrums. Trump’s thousands of bullying lawsuits seem to have escaped her notice.
Trump’s consigliere and cheerleader-in-chief Ann Coulter is not just myopic, she’s in total denial. Coulter denies Trump’s bullying nature, contending instead that Trump is the victim. Yes, you heard that right – Trump is the victim. Coulter said, “It’s unfair and they are blaming a victim.”
(Coulter often uses that ruse to justify herself. See chapter 6 of The Beauty of Conservatism.)
Coulter then justified Trump’s attacks as merely defensive in nature, arguing, “When he has been slandered unfairly and attacked, ya, he punches back. I don’t think Trump is a bully, he fights back, he punches twice as hard, but you have to if you’re going to fight against the ruling class.”
Wow! Trump is fighting against the “ruling elite” when he threatens physical violence against voters and convention delegates, when he threatens lawsuits against his victims, or when he boasts of being able to grab p*ssy?
Is there nothing that Trump supporters will not defend? Nothing too repulsive in their candidate that they will not tolerate?
