Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) inspired a frenzy of angry (and hilarious) tweets after attempting to defend First Lady Melania Trump from critics who have what he calls "Trump Derangement Syndrome."

"I know for a FACT that @FLOTUS has been a strong voice of compassion for migrant children," the senator tweeted on Friday. "The vicious treatment of her over the last day is a reminder of how Trump Derangement Syndrome,where hatred for him justifies everything,has become an epidemic."

"Totally lunacy everywhere!!!" he continued.

"My dude," journalist Parker Molloy responded, "right-wing media went into DEFCON 1 when Michelle Obama wore a sleeveless dress once."

"Here was @glennbeck during the Obama years losing his mind over the fact that Michelle Obama wore a white outfit to visit an oil spill, comparing her to Marie Antoinette, saying it made her seem disinterested, calling it an 'outrage,'" the journalist's thread continued.

Molloy went on to point out that Fox News' Lou Dobbs and other media outlets and figures were up in arms over President Barack Obama wearing a tan suit.

"I still can't believe these were actual stories," Molloy tweeted, noting that "the actual topic he was discussing that day was Russia invading Ukraine, but that got lost in all of this."
