If irony has a picture under it in the dictionary, it might well look like Melania Trump.
In her first speech since the GOP convention, Melania Trump spoke in a suburb of Philadelphia, and proclaimed she wanted to put an end to online bullying of children and teenagers.
Put an end to online bullying?
Yes. Melania Trump orated:
Technology has changed our universe. But like anything that is powerful it can have a bad side. We have seen this already. As adults, many of us are able to handle mean words — even lies. Children and teenagers can be fragile. They hurt when they are made fun of or made to feel less in looks or intelligence. This makes their life hard and forces them to hide and retreat. Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough especially to children and to teenagers. We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other.
Has she met her husband? To quote Donald Trump’s favorite book, (Luke 4:23) “Physician, heal thyself.”
The Twitterverse took note:
"We have to find a better way to talk to each other, to disagree with each other, to respect each other."
