President Donald Trump and his family members have, unfortunately, been the subject of countless verbal attacks throughout Trump’s presidency. His wife, First Lady Melania Trump, is often targeted for simply being married to him.
The most recent attack against the First Lady came from an Oregon congressional candidate running as an independent — Mark Roberts. On social media, Roberts compared Mrs. Trump to a prostitute.
While responding to a Twitter post from conservative voice Charlie Kirk about the difference in staffers between Michelle Obama and Melania Trump, Roberts stated, “Did you know the First Lady works by the hour? #thinkdirty #hoebag”
Conservatives did not take well to Roberts’ Twitter attack. GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was one of many well-known Republican names who spoke out against Roberts; McCarthy called the comment “disgraceful” and demanded that his account should be banned.
Other conservatives also spoke out against Roberts. Many were appalled that someone running for her office would make such derogatory comments against our First Lady.
Roberts responded to the backlash on Tuesday in a statement to the Daily Caller: "I think the answers to your questions are self-explanatory. Have a [good] day and keep the donations coming.”
