Earlier this week, Hillary Clinton remarked that first lady Melania Trump isn't doing enough to combat cyber-bullying. This remark comes in the midst of widespread publicity over Clinton's new book "What Happened," where the former presidential candidate provides a first-hand narrative of how she lost the election.
"No, no, and, look, I don't think anybody is doing enough on cyberbullying," said Clinton according to the Washington Examiner.
Clinton's remarks weren't necessarily hostile, although they were clearly intended to take aim at the first lady, who remarked in November that "our culture has gotten too mean and too rough, especially to children and teenagers."
Despite criticism from Clinton, the first lady spoke at the United Nations on Wednesday to condemn bullying. In her speech, she remarked that world leaders need to teach "moral conscience" by the example of their character.
"We must teach each child that they are at the core of the kindness, mindfulness, integrity, and leadership, which can only be taught by our own example. By our own example, we must teach children to be good stewards of the world they inherit," she said, according to The Hill.
She continued, "We must remember that they are watching and listening, so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life's ethical lessons along the way. As adults we are not merely responsible, we are accountable. I hope you will join me in recommitting ourselves to teaching the next generation to lead and honor the golden rule, do unto others as you would have do unto you. Which is paramount in today's society, and my focus as first lady. It reminds our generation's moral imperative to take responsibility for what our children learn."

According to a Fox News poll conducted this summer, Melania is more popular than Clinton. Despite the low approval ratings of her husband President Donald Trump, the first lady's popularity has been blossoming.
Melania's approval rating was 55% in July, an increase of 16% since last August. When Clinton was the first lady, she did not have as high approval ratings as Melania, and she also lagged behind her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
