Melania Trump Says She's the ''Most Bullied Person in the World''

Melania Trump Says She's the ''Most Bullied Person in the World''

In an interview with ABC News, Melania Trump explained the motivation behind her "Be Best" anti-bullying campaign.

Fun fact: when Julia Ioffe wrote a profile of Melania Trump in GQ, she was subsequently bombarded with anti-Semitic garbage like this after Melania Trump published a note on Facebook pushing back against Ioffe's reporting.

"They need to be heard", she said.

The first lady also tackled the #MeToo movement in the interview, suggesting that "a high-enough bar has not always been applied to judging accusations of sexual misconduct", as Newsweek reported.

In another preview clip of her interview that aired Wednesday, Trump said she was disappointed to find that some groups turned down her request to collaborate with them. "One of them - if you really see what people [are] saying about me".

Trump spoke to ABC News during her recent trip to Africa where she interacted with babies and school-aged children in an effort to raise awareness of her personal initiative as first lady. She added that she supports women, and also men.

But many have questioned the choice of subject, given her husband's well-known habit of insulting his critics on Twitter.

Did Luis Severino know what time Game 3 started?
Well, that question is a lot more complicated than one might think. "It was a special moment for me". Devers singled twice, stole a base, scored two runs and knocked in another.

Meghan McCain said there's a bit of a gray area when discussing assault, pointing to #MeToo founder Tarana Burke saying, "When we say believe survivors, it's not believe them without investigation".

"Some people, they don't work there anymore", Trump said.

'I'm not going to talk about it, they know who they are, ' she tells Llamas.

Not after Barack Obama faced endless conspiracy theories about his foreignness (perpetuated, by the way, by Melania's husband, to which she said nothing).

"I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence", Trump said.

"I was in Washington probably 17 times in my life", President Trump told "Fox and Friends".

The ABC News special, "Being Melania", airs Friday at 10 p.m. ET.
