Country star Sheryl Crow pleaded with First Lady Melania Trump to stop her husband’s s0-called “bullying” and incitement of “violence,” arguing that President Donald Trump may listen to his wife over others.

In a tweet directed to the First Lady herself, Crow complained that Donald Trump “seems not to care” about the consequences of his aggressive tweeting.
“Dear @FLOTUS Melania, could you ask your husband to stop bullying and stop inciting violence? It is tearing us apart,” she wrote. “He seems to not care. Perhaps @realDonaldTrump might listen to you? #MothersWhoCare #StopBullying #FakeNewsTweets.”

Crow’s complaint came off the back of multiple tweets from the President, where he mocked “Sleepy Joe Biden” and “Crazy Bernie Sanders” and celebrated his exoneration from FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into supposed Russian collusion.

It is not the first that the singer, who has sold over 50 million albums worldwide, has undertaken innovative measures to confront the Trump presidency. In 2017, the 57-year-old revealed she had turned to meditation to confront fears of his “apocalyptic” presidency.

“My sleep has been disturbed. My insides are ridden with unease,” Sheryl Crow said in an interview with Rolling Stone. “I wrote that song before Trump got the nomination – it already felt apocalyptic that people were entertaining the idea of making a man like that the most powerful person in the world.”

Crow has also styled herself as one of Hollywood’s most vehement anti-Second Amendment activists. In 2017, she released a special song on the theme of gun control to commemorate the fifth year anniversary of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut. She claimed at the time the song “represents the voice of the parents of Sandy Hook victims and others working to end gun violence.”
