WATCH: Kristen Bell Mocks Melania Trump’s Cyberbullying Initiative in Political SAG Awards Monologue

Kristen Bell, the host of the 24th annual Screen Actors Guild Awards, is not impressed with First Lady Melania Trump’s anti-cyberbullying efforts, as she mocked the initiative tonight while opening the show.

Bell, who referred to herself as the “first lady” as she is SAG’s first-ever host, mocked the actual first lady’s efforts against online bullying. “I think my first initiative as first lady will be cyberbullying, because I have yet to see any progress on that problem quite yet,” said Bell.

She then joked that actor Tony Hale is “vicious on Twitter.”

From there, she continued politicizing her speech by suggesting the show The Handmaid’s Tale — a series on a dystopian, anti-woman society that many liberals have used to criticize the administration’s stance on abortion — is actually a “documentary.”

“Elisabeth Moss is here from the documentary, The Handmaid’s Tale — that’s a sad one. Hi, Elisabeth. Just doing a quick check in on your serotonin levels. Not the platform? We can talk after the show,” said Bell to the show’s star Elisabeth Moss.

Finally, she joked with Maya Rudolph that the year “2018” is actually hell.

“I love the show where you’re in hell. What’s it called?” Asked Rudolph — to which Bell replied, “2018.”
