Talk show host Chelsea Handler mocked Melania Trump, saying that she wouldn't have the First Lady on her show because "she can barely speak English," according to TMZ. She also said that she wouldn't have Donald or Melania Trump on her Netflix show, because, as she put it, "I don't respect either one of those people."

Fair enough, but there are plenty of things to mock about Melania Trump without bringing up her English-speaking skills. Mrs. Trump reportedly speaks five languages: English, German, French, Italian, and her native Slovene.
