Reactions to Melania claiming she's the most bullied person in the world

Melania Trump has raised a fair share of eyebrows since she launched her pet project, Be Best, because it aims, in part, to combat cyberbullying — with critics accusing her husband, President Trump, of being one of Twitter’s most egregious offenders.

But the first lady shrugged off charges of hypocrisy to promote her anti-bullying initiative during this month’s solo trip to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya, and Egypt.

In addition to dropping off Be Best-branded tote bags laden with supplies at local schools, Melania made time during her trip to sit down for an exclusive interview with ABC News’ Tom Llamas.

In a preview of the discussion, the first lady is shown defending her work with Be Best for a personal reason: She sees herself as a victim of bullying.

“I could say I’m the most bullied person in the world,” she told the reporter.

“One of them — if you really see what people [are] saying about me.”

Though the clip doesn’t include questions about her own husband’s image as a bully, the first lady has faced ridicule.

Just a day after her interview with Tom was filmed, she wore a menswear-inspired look in Egypt that was mocked by countless memes.

But is getting heat from the so-called fashion police comparable to the insults flung at, say, Christine Blasey Ford, who the president recently lambasted during a rally?

Twitter users aren’t feeling so sympathetic.
