Over the last two years, American politics has transformed into a must-see happening. Once #Donald Trump announced that he was going to run for president back in June 2015, the way Washington operated changed. Trump's campaign kicked off with controversy when he accused illegal immigrants from Mexico of being "rapists" and "murderers," and the reception hasn't gotten much better. In the months that followed, the former host of "The Apprentice" would find himself in controversy that occurred on an almost daily basis.

Due to Trump's style, which has carried over into the White House and his administration, those close to him have almost felt the backlash from those who oppose him. During Trump's time as a politician, his wife Melania Trump has stayed mostly out of the spotlight, but has spoken out from time to time on a series of issues. After tweeting out her thoughts on the recent violence [VIDEO] stemming from a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, critics hit back on August 13.

Taking to Twitter on Saturday was Melania Trump as the first lady condemned what took place in Charlottesville. "Our country encourages freedom of speech, but let's communicate w/o hate in our hearts," Melania tweeted out, before adding, "No good comes from violence." As expected, critics of the administration were quick to fire back at Melania, while also pointing out the alleged hypocrisy of Donald Trump in the process.

Twitter reacts

Not long after sending out her tweet about the Charlottesville violence, Melania Trump was on the receiving end of heavy backlash. "WHERE IS YOUR #TRAITOR #RACIST husband and #CowardInChief?," one Twitter user wrote.

"Please start tweeting for your husband," Newsweek writer Kurt Eichenwald‏ added. "Start at home before you preach to us," an additional tweet went on to read. "But you're married to the individual who condones this. Check inside the WH," yet another tweet noted.

"Many of them are wearing MAGA hats and saying your husband emboldened them. This is hypocrisy," Kelly Ellis wrote. As the backlash continued, it quickly became clear that the white nationalist rally turned riot was just another example of the political division in the United States that doesn't seem to be ending anytime soon.
