CNN analyst slams reports that Donald Trump feels ‘bossed around’ by Melania: ‘She’s put up with a lot!’

During a CNN panel discussion, The Nation‘s Joan Walsh scoffed at the claim that Donald Trump felt “bullied” by First Lady Melania Trump when she issued a rare public statement condemning now-reassigned national security adviser Mira Ricardel.

“I just love that little angle that he doesn’t like being bossed around by his wife,” Walsh said.

“His wife has put up with an awful lot from him,” she added. “I’m not going to go into the details but if she wants to release a tweet and a statement saying she wants this woman gone, I don’t know. It’s the least he can do for her, in my opinion.”

Later, the discussion turned to the First Lady’s latest complaint about being “ridiculed” over her anti-bullying platform.

Host Erin Burnett noted that critics have called Melania “hypocritical” for crusading against school bullying when her husband engages in it so regularly — a point Walsh said has not missed the First Lady.

“I feel like she’s trolling us,” she said.

“This is her cause,” Walsh added. “Go work on your cause. Do it quietly. Have a press conference occasionally. But she’s using her bully pulpit — I don’t know what the First Lady bully pulpit is — but whatever it is, she’s using it to kind of whine again about her treatment, which she’s already done when people are right to notice that her husband is cyberbullying everyone, with an emphasis on women, on black women.”
