Oregon Congressional candidate Mark Roberts insulted first lady Melania Trump on Twitter Monday, implying she works as a prostitute.

Roberts, who is running as an independent for the second Congressional district, responded to a tweet from Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk and decided to bash the first lady(RELATED: Women Journalists Attacked Melania Trump Because ‘They’re Harpies,’ Says Tammy Bruce)

Kirk pointed out major differences between Melania’s White House staff and the staff of former first lady Michelle Obama and said the Trumps are getting by with a much smaller team.

He claimed Obama had 44 staffers working for her, while Melania only has five.

Roberts responded by asking Kirk if he knew the first lady “works by the hour,” and then he place hashtags on the words, “thinkdirty” and “hoebag.”

The Daily Caller News Foundation reached out to Roberts’ congressional campaign for a statement and received an email from what appears to be Roberts himself.

“Sorry Nick never heard of The Daily Caller. I think I’m too big for you, but feel free to send me a link to some of your work,” he replied.

TheDCNF asked Roberts why he chose the phrases “thinkdirty” and “hoebag” to describe Melania and whether or not he thinks it’s appropriate to describe the first lady in that fashion.

“I think the answers to your questions are self explanatory. Have a god [sic] day and keep the donations coming,” he replied.
