Some pundits are already dubbing Donald TrumpThe Nominee” after Tuesday night’s Nevada Republican presidential caucuses gave the billionaire businessman his third big win in a row.

But there are far more far-less-flattering labels that have been attached to Trump in the course of his colorful campaign and his wife, Melania, was confronted with an uncomfortable list in an interview with MSNBC that aired Wednesday morning.

“I got a list of terms that have been used to describe your husband – from the left, the right, and the center – and they’re not pretty,” said Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski – “From ‘stupid’ to ‘demagogue, jerk, idiot, racist, sexist, race-baiting, xenophobic, Vulgarian in Chief, textbook narcicist.’ It goes on.”

Melania, her expression impassive as the list was read, replied: “It’s normal that will come up. We are prepared for that. We have a thick skin. And we know that people will judge him and people will call names. They don’t give him enough credit. From June when he announced, they don’t give him enough credit.”

The candidate’s wife, a Slovenian-born former model who speaks four languages, occasionally appears at Trump’s side on the campaign trail. But in her crisply-accented English, she told MSNBC that she is “not in the campaign so much” because she is a “full-time mom” to her and Donald’s son, Barron.

“I like to keep life as normal as possible for my son Barron,” Melania said.
