Joy Behar: If Melania Wants to Stop Online Bullying, She Should Delete Donald Trump’s Twitter Account


Speaking her mind! On a Thursday, November 4 episode of The View, cohost Joy Behar slammed Melania Trump’s plans to stop cyberbullying, for which her husband Donald Trump has become infamous. The aspiring first lady announced her agenda during a rare campaign trail appearance outside Philadelphia on Thursday, November 3. Watch the clip above!

“Our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers,” Trump, 46, began. “It is never okay 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’s done by someone with no name hiding on the internet.”

Recently, Donald Trump has been under fire for his internet attacks on celebrities, news outlets, and more. In fact, the New York Times reported that Trump has attacked people, places, and things 281 times on his Twitter account since announcing his presidential run in June 2015. 

Behar, 74, couldn’t ignore the irony. “So my question is, if she wants to fight cyberbullying, shouldn’t she delete her husband’s Twitter account?” she asked the audience. The Brooklyn native continued on: “Because I was thinking maybe, you know, ‘fat slob’ and ‘bimbo’ are like compliments in Slovenia,” hinting at Trump’s feuds with former cohost Rosie O’Donnell and Fox news host Megyn Kelly

This isn’t the first time the longest running cohost on The View has made it known who she is not voting for on Election Day. Just two days earlier, on Wednesday, November 2, Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway appeared on the talk show, and Behar candidly told her, “I think right now you’re being delusional.”
