“The View” co-hosts on Thursday reacted to First Lady Melania Trump’s speech about bullying. The panelists questioned why she doesn’t call out her own husband, President Donald Trump. Watch the video below.

On Wednesday, Melania spoke before the United Nations about the things from which we need to protect our children. She said, in part, “We must remember that they are watching and listening, so we must never miss an opportunity to teach life’s many ethical lessons.” She went on to decry bullying, especially of the online variety. The first lady has previously said she plans to make cyber-bullying part of her platform while in office. Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg asked, “So, is one of the things she’s going to be dealing with, you think, with her husband deleting, perhaps, his Twitter account?”

Sara Haines admitted that while “everyone was running to hypocrisy,” “I see it slightly differently… I see very veiled language.” She suggested that since personally talking to Donald seems to be of no use, maybe Melania was trying to get him to hear her through this speech. “Someone said I might be giving her too much credit,” Haines acknowledged. Behar wasn’t buying it, and exclaimed, “Does she even know who he is?! I don’t know that she even has an idea of who he is.” She also said of Melania, “Who is she? We don’t know who she is.”

Said Sunny Hostin, “But the thing is, as the First Lady, you have to have your finger on the pulse of America. That’s your job.” She added that while, “cyber-bullying is an important platform… she’s the wrong messenger for that platform.” Goldberg also argued, “Part of the reason we may feel this way is because people don’t think of adults being bullied. They only think of children… She may not realize what he does as bullying. She may not see it that way.” Check out the full video below.
