While many people around the nation believe that First Lady Melania is a picture of true class, she is still the subject of many malicious rumors. Last week, she had to address some of those rumors first hand.
During an interview, while she was on her first solo international trip since being in the White House, First Lady Melania addressed rumors of President Trump cheating on her. She said that she has “much more important things to think about.”
She said, “I know people like to speculate and media like to speculate about our marriage and circulate the gossip. But I understand the gossip sells newspapers, magazines…and, unfortunately, we live in this kind of world today.”
After being asked about the rumors surrounding cheating, Melania said, “It is not concern and focus of mine. I’m a mother and a first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do."
She then added, “Yeah, it’s not always pleasant, of course. But I know what is right and what is wrong and what is true and not true.”
Though she addressed the rumors in a graceful way, the media continued to bash on Melania for what some claimed to be her uninterested dismissal of the claims. On Friday, a guest host on The View, Yvette Nicole Brown, suggested that Melania was once a “mistress” of President Trump, thus explaining her behavior.
Brown said, “Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?”
After the harmful comments made on The View, Press Secretary Sanders took to Twitter to defend the First Lady’s honor.
She wrote, “Sad @TheView continues their disgusting attacks on @FLOTUS. The left’s ‘war on women’ they disagree with is a disgrace. @FLOTUS is strong, accomplished, and has a lot more class than the women who bully her.”
First Lady Melania’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, fired back at The View as well.
She wrote, “Day 2 of attacks from @TheView. @YNB check your facts before you accuse someone of being a mistress. She’s your @FLOTUS- she deserves your respect & certainly not your lies. Disgusting. #disrespectful #accusation #LiberalMedia @TomLlamasABC @ABCWorldNews.”
