‘Is She Completely Clueless Or Is She Trolling [Trump]?’ Morning Joe Rips Melania For Anti-Bullying Campaign
MSNBC’s Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough, who was once friends with Donald Trump, was left confused after First Lady Melania Trump tweeted out a message against anti-bullying on Tuesday as her husband continues to attack just about everyone who criticizes him.
“Now, is she completely clueless or is she trolling the man she’s married to?” Scarborough asked. “I think it’s probably the latter… The First Lady making remarks at a summit to ‘discourage online bullying.’ She did that yesterday, asked about the contradictory message, the First Lady’s office said in a statement she is ‘aware of the criticism, but it will not deter her from doing what she feels is right.’”
Scarborough then turned and asked MSNBC analyst John Heilemann for his thoughts.
“I have to ask, is she trolling the president there, or is she just completely separated from the realities of how her husband spends every waking moment when he has free time?” Scarborough asked.
“There are many questions like that, Joe, that are, what I like to call false binaries: not either/ors, they’re and/buts,” Heilemann responded. “If you look at Melania Trump, the way she’s handled herself in the last 18 months while her husband was in the Oval Office, I would say trolling the president… she seems pretty acutely aware of what her husband does on social media and she’s taken a few subtle shots. this might be one of them. This might be one of them.”
