Lady Gaga has called Melania a “hypocrite” for saying she will fight cyber bullying if elected as First Lady, but yet still supports “one of the most notorious bullies ever witnessed.”
“To say you will stand for ‘anti-bullying’ is hypocrisy. Your husband is one of the most notorious bullies we have ever witnessed.”
According to the Daily Mail, the 30-year-old singer called out Donald Trump’s wife Sunday on Twitter while also urging her fans to support Hillary Clinton and not the “dangerous man.”
Lady Gaga zoned in on her point when she touched down at the Narita International Airport, Japan, to promote her new album, Joanne. The “Pokerface” singer was clad in a feathered cap, sporting a hard to miss “Vote” badge with a discarded corset behind her.
In a Snapchat video captioned “Corset off ladies,” Gaga subtly referred to the work of feminist writer Charlotte Perkins Gilman, who poked holes at restrictive gender roles for women, figuratively urging them to take off their corsets and breathe more freely.
Melania Trump’s speech about taking a strong stance against cyberbullying was the first after her much criticized address at the Republican National Committee in July where she was accused of plagiarizing a part of Michelle Obama’s speech.
Lady Gaga, who runs the anti-bullying nonprofit Born This Way Foundation with her mother, said it made no sense why Melania Trump would want to fight cyberbullying on the internet, when the problem was much closer home.
The 30-year-old, who recently got in a war of words over pop icon Madonna, said it would be a disaster to elect a man who was conning many Americans in a bid to be president.
“The truth is that, as an insider, because I am a celebrity, I have insight into the type of person that Donald Trump is. The truth is that we celebrities know he is an actor, and that this is an act. We are standing with Hillary not just because she is a far superior choice for president, but we are also standing with her because it would be a complete disaster to elect someone that is essentially a political impostor.”
Lady Gaga is not the only celebrity reacting to the irony that Melania wants to fight cyberbullying if she makes it to the White House, despite her husband’s notoriety for attacking people on Twitter. Comedian Albert Brooks humorously suggested that a first step to take to fight her cause should be to divorce Donald Trump. Radio talk show host Montel Williams said, “Melania Trump is decrying how mean and petty society has become—has she met her husband?”
TV and radio talk show host Andy Cohen queried whether Melania could really see the irony of promoting a better society while still married to the biggest bully ever seen in America. Comedian Tom Arnold took his own jab, saying that he was all for the former model’s idea, but wonder how she would implement it.

“Trump women have some solid ideas. Wish they knew a powerful man who respected women enough to implement them. They could make a difference.”
American television personality Marie Jones chirped in saying that she fully understood a woman standing behind her man, but that the 46-year-old Slovenian would not get far with popular support because of her husband’s track record with women.
“I advocate for women everyday so I support Melania advocating for her husband. Do you boo. But don’t expect us to support a #p****grabber.”
Chelsea Clinton during a speech in Berwyn, Pennsylvania, waded into the irony, calling it the “Trump effect.” The 36-year-old said even though double standards were being set considering the circumstances, it was a concern that people needed to pay attention to both online and offline.
Her dad, Bill Clinton, was less sympathetic, saying that he felt bad for the former model wanting to fight cyberbullying and have no inkling it was the same thing as her husband bashing a former Miss Universe in a flurry of tweets at 3 a.m. in the morning.
According to the Inquisitr, aides of Donald Trump now control his Twitter account in a bid to ensure he stays on message.
