Congressional Candidate Posts Inappropriate Message About Melania, Defends it

Mark Roberts, an independent running in Oregon's second congressional district, posted a rather inappropriate and tasteless message about First Lady Melania Trump on his Twitter account Monday. He essentially compared her to a prostitute.

Immediately, social media users condemned his shocking message and demanded Twitter suspend Roberts's account.

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Roberts for a comment on why he felt it was okay to call the First Lady those insulting names and apparently got this flippant response:

“I think the answers to your questions are self explanatory," he wrote. "Have a god [sic] day and keep the donations coming.”

GOP House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy got involved too, asking Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey do something.

Roberts doubled down on his tweet, referencing his First Amendment rights and daring Mrs. Trump to sue him.
