Transcript for Melania Trump speaks out about cyberbullying
The first lady gave her first speech at the U.N. Where she spoke about the biggest dangers in the world and the things we need to protect our children from. Take a look at the clip. We must member that they are watching and listening. So we must never miss an opportunity to teach life's many ethical lessons along the way. We must turn our focus to the message and content they are exposed to on a daily basis through social media, the bullying, the experience of lying and in person. Is one of the things she is going to be dealing with you think with her husband perhaps deleting his Twitter account? We talked about this. I see it slightly differently. One of the many reasons Donald Trump is not married to us is we would never -- I know why he's not married to me. We would never stand for it. We would be the -- yapping in his ear. When you can't tell your husband to his face, you repeat over and over that we set an example by how we live our lives. Passive aggressive. I don't think that -- that's too subtle for him. I found it interesting. I was like Donald she's talking to you. I know she doesn't hold his hand. She probably doesn't bother with him anymore. Does she even know who he is? I don't know she has an idea who he is. She's defended him though. Do you think she really knows what she's saying? I'm a little conflicted -- She backed him up on the birther movement. Who is she? Don't know who she is? You interviewed her. She defended the birth to you. Yes. I'm not meaning to insult her intelligence. She might not understand why that's so offensive. We give her credit because she's complicit in some ways. When you're around people with louder voices and stronger minds and you're listening, that's why a lot of kids reap what their parents sow. The thing is as the first lady you have to have your finger on the pulse of America. That's your job. You didn't sign up for it, but you've become a figure head. I started looking at other first ladies. She's not the first first lady to speak at the U.N. First ladies have done this for a very long time. They have these platforms. Cyber bullying is an important platform. Why did she pick that one? That's the wrong messenger for that one. Go for stilettos or something. I think in part -- part of the reason why we may feel this way is because people don't think of adults as being pull bullied. People think of children as being bullied. We're bullied understand on Twitter. I understand that. But we can say really? Come say that to my face. They won't. That's the point. She have may not relate what he does as bullying. She may not see it that way. You're right. We've had presidents and first ladies who have done amazing stuff.
