Michael Rapaport mocks Melania in rude Mother's Day rant: 'Hope you’re a better mom than you are First Lady'
'Why would you attack his wife? She literally does nothing offensive,' said a social media user
Comedian Michael Rapaport made a nasty joke about first lady Melania Trump on Mother's Day, May 10.
Rapaport took to Twitter to say that he hoped that Melania was a better mother than she was a first lady. His tweet read, "HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!!! I hope you’re a better Mother than you are First Lady, you’re useless as a First Lady, literally @FLOTUS."
The tweet had been signed off with the hashtag, "#M***S." The tweet had been accompanied by a picture of Melania who was clad in a skimpy outfit from her modeling days. His tweet was met with a lot of criticism and outrage online.
One such user wrote, "There might be someone out there more deserving of an ass-kicking than you, but I haven't met them." A second user-added, "You’ve gone fully unhinged. Why would you attack his wife? She literally does nothing offensive."
A third user chimed in, "What a sad excuse for a man. Of all messages you could use your platform to send on mother's day, you take shots at out first lady. A woman who has done no wrong to you, but is constantly bullied by elitists like yourself."
"Your acting is below par and that's grading on a huge curve. So, this is the only way you can attract attention to insult a mother on Mother's day," wrote a fourth. "You are a mysogynist (sic) dumbass," added another user. Post the backlash, he then shared a screenshot of a message he had received from Twitter saying that his tweet had been reported but that he had not violated the site's rules.
He uploaded the screenshot along with the caption, "Snowflakes gonna Snowflake. 'I like My War Hero’s not captured'." The second part of his caption referred to a comment POTUS Trump had made prior to the 2016 election, Breitbart reports.
The comment had been regarding Republican John McCain who had criticized Trump's presidential campaign.
Just last month, Rapaport had called the first lady Melania Trump a 'dumb animal' after her public service announcement response to the coronavirus. The 'Small Time Crooks' actor said, "Look at this DUMB FKC!!! She thinks this is SEXXXY TIME? Dumb FKC! You dumb animal @FLOTUS."
"MAGA!!!! Look at what you’ve done!!!" he had shared. He also talked about POTUS Donald Trump's response to the coronavirus crisis and slammed Trump. He wrote, "You are the worst possible motherf****r we could have in power making decisions right now."
He had also gone on a rant in March, suggesting that Trump's children leave the house and expose themselves to the coronavirus. "Why don’t you send your fucking son, dick stain Donald Trump Jr., big-toothed Eric Trump, little fucking Barron, fucking Ivanka, junkyard Jared — let them go out there and test the fucking waters," he shared. "Let them take the cars, the trains, the buses, the Amtrak, let them play in the park. And if everything’s good after five days of them playing in the streets, we’ll all go back to [work]," he concluded his rant.
