The eternal joke about Melania

The peculiar episode that drew media attention happened during the ceremony itself, when Cate dropped an innocent joke towards playing the role of Donald Trump’s wife, Melania:

If I was playing Melania Trump (not that I would probably be cast in that role), I wouldn't be necessarily coming from the place of “Free Melania.” I'd be trying to understand the situation so that you could then throw that back at an audience and say: 'What's her position as a woman? What does she think? What's it like being married to -- you know'.

The joke originates from the president’s inauguration, where Mrs. Trump seemed uncomfortable.

This caused the immediate Internet reaction that later transformed into a viral Twitter hashtag #FreeMelania.

The Internet users simply adore the Cate’s comment.

They are assured that if Blanchett happens to play the role of Melania Trump, somewhere in the future, she will definitely succeed.
