Did you know:
There are thirty-nine fewer staffers dedicated to The First Lady of the United States (FLOTUS) than under Obama
There are only five staffers dedicated to Melania Trump vs. forty-four staffers who served Michelle Obama
US House candidate, OR-2
Did you know the First Lady works by the hour? #thinkdirty #hoebag

Responses from Twitter users:
Mark Roberts, a congressional candidate in Oregon must be banned from Twitter for his disgusting remarks about First Lady Melania Trump

Replying to @RobertsforCD2 and 2 others
Attacking @FLOTUS for NO good reason other than to get clicks. Zero class.

This is shameful, small-minded and unspeakably disrespectful. The First Lady (first and foremost), the OR-2 and all women deserve much, much better than this comment. Find a way to be a better person, @RobertsforCD2.

You do realize that is the most ignorant, uncalled for, and degrading thing you could say! How would you feel if someone said that to your wife, mother, daughter? Seriously, get help!

House candidate Mark Roberts blasted after calling Melania Trump a ‘hoebag’ on Twitter https://bit.ly/2Aon5ru @washtimes
No first lady should be disrespected in this manner. This man has no class, whatsoever.

Mark Roberts, you are an embarrassment to the state of Oregon! You need to quit and get brain surgery since you obviously don’t have one now

There are more but above is a good sampling of the outrage Robert’s response has engendered. It is sad to see the lows politicians have reached. Hopefully the voters have as much common sense as these tweeters come election day.
