Here’s some extremely important news for you to chew on: Melania Trump is the most bullied person on the entire planet.
This is what she believes, anyway. In an interview with ABC News (the American one, obviously) the First Lady – who is, by really any measure, one of the most powerful people you can name – said that she is “the most bullied person in the world.” She says that this fact is what motivated her to start her own anti-cyberbullying initiative.

Presenter Tom Llamas called her out on that, asking if she is really the most bullied person you can name. “One of them – if you really see what people are saying about me,” Melania replied.
Look, we’ve got no choice but to take her at her word here. It’s a big claim, but I reckon it passes the sniff test.
In the same interview, Melania targeted women coming forward about historical sexual assault, arguing that they “need to have really hard evidence”:
I do stand with women but we need to show the evidence. You cannot just say to somebody, ‘I was sexually assaulted,’ or, ‘You did that to me’. Because sometimes the media goes too far and the way they portray some stories [that are] not correct. It’s not right.
We’re certainly not starved for content with this administration, are we?
