Monica Lewinsky on Monday joined Chelsea Clinton as a defender of Barron Trump, the 10-year-old son of President Donald Trump and the object of some mean-spirited comments and tweets since his dad’s inauguration Friday.
Lewinsky is an anti-bullying activist and she tossed in her two cents after “Saturday Night Live” writer Katie Rich was suspended from the show after tweeting that Barron “will be this country’s first homeschool shooter.”
Lewinsky wrote: “all children need to be protected from bullying + mockery (incl #barrontrump). let’s be better than this.”
As for Rich, she apologized for her insensitive tweet Monday by posting an apology on Twitter that read in part, “I deeply regret my actions & my offensive words.” However, she has since been suspended from “Saturday Night Live” because of her inappropriate tweet.
