MSNBC host Joe Scarborough made the wild claim that First Lady Melania Trump’s admirable anti-bullying initiative is an example of her husband’s hypocrisy on Tuesday. Mrs. Trump has recently become more vocal about the need to reduce bullying in the country’s schools.

“That’s a curious thing to be doing,” Scarborough said, referencing Trump’s comments [calling] Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) “liddle” and the bringing up the president’s criticisms of co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Scarborough said Melania Trump has been mostly quiet as Trump attacks people on social media.

“Historians will look back at this initiative, and they will say, ‘Want to see something that really encapsulated the hypocrisy of the Trump presidency, this would be a good place to start,'” Scarborough said.

“The first lady actually going out and having the audacity to talk about anti-bullying when she is living with the biggest bullier in the history of the White House.”
