First Lady Melania Trump launched a new Twitter hashtag campaign early this week. But as expected, it quickly backfired to epic proportions.
Melania’s hashtag, #PowerOfTheFirstLady, attempts to drum up support for “women around the world,” and for herself apparently.

“Applause to all women around the world who speak up, stand up and support other women!” she wrote.
The tweet was a response to Gone Girl actress Emily Ratajkowski, who defended the First Lady earlier this week after a New York Times reporter published slut-shaming comments.
While “support other women!” is a good and important message, it didn’t go exactly as planned for the former model.
Costing us a fortune living in NYC. #PowerOfTheFirstLady
We know you don’t want to live w/ him but that is your
problem, not ours.

#PowerOfTheFirstLady is optional. If Melania Trump wants to do nothing, however, let her do it in D.C. She’s costing us $1 mil a day in NY.

God, I feel sorry for Melania. Can’t even hire an intern to come up with an inspiring hashtag below 20 characters 🙁 #PowerOfTheFirstLady

#PowerOfTheFirstLady. Oh, the first lady that is suing for millions because of loss if income on a job she didn’t do? That one?
