Mark Roberts, a congressional candidate running in Oregon’s 2nd Congressional District, decided to take a swing at first lady Melania Trump on Twitter this Monday.

Roberts came across a tweet from Turning Point USA’s Charlie Kirk that stated that Melania Trump had 39 fewer members on her staff than Michelle Obama and decided to launch an attack on the first lady.

From his blue checkmark labeled verified account, the congressional hopeful tweeted “Did you know the First Lady works by the hour? #thinkdirty #hoebag”

Roberts essentially is implying that Melania Trump is a prostitute.

Others on Twitter were quick to criticize Roberts’ vile post.

“It's one thing to dislike the President, but calling the First Lady a prostitute is too much and this congressional candidate should apologize.”

“Delete your candidacy,” said Tom Bevan of RealClearPolitics, putting his own spin on the popular Twitter meme “delete your account.”

The Republican Party of Michigan called for Twitter to remove Roberts from the website. Twitter has banned right-wing users in the past, prompting this legitimate complaint.

“How can Twitter shadow ban conservatives, but keep this tweet up?”

Instead of being apologetic, Roberts doubled down on his disgraceful words.

“You start whipping out $100’s and see how classy she gets, #makeitrain!”

House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy also made a plea to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to remove Mark Roberts from the website.

“Jack, this attack on FLOTUS is disgraceful. Comments like these have no business on any platform. This account should be banned ASAP.”
