In an exclusive ABC interview that was set to air on Thursday morning, first lady Melania Trump complained that she is "the most bullied person in the world" and commenters on Twitter -- where bullying is de rigueur -- begged to differ.
Speaking with ABC host Tony Llamas, the wife of President Donald Trump was asked about her BeBest anti-bullying campaign and her first response was mentioning herself which set off the online commentariat, with one responding: "So #bebest is about her. The entire family is self-absorbed."
That was one of the nicer responses, with multiple commenters responding her comment was a veiled reference to her husband bullying her behind the scenes.

You'd think that the lady that says she's the most bullied in the world would consider divorce, then. https://t.co/i0f6Mpaula— Dr. emptywheel (@Dr. emptywheel)1539256508.0
