It has been a controversial week in Washington D.C. after the President went after Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough of MSNBC. The journalistic television show has attacked the President on a consistent basis and the President hit back on social media. The President tweeted how terrible both journalists were and attacked Mika for an alleged bloody facelift. Brzezinsk attacked back referencing the Presidents tiny hands.
Shortly thereafter Brzezinski attacked First Lady Melania Trump. The journalist suggested that Trump wants out of her marriage with the President and is only staying in it for the sake of her son. She made those comments to a reporter with InStyle.
“I know Melania. I haven’t talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don’t think she’s going to put up with it much longer. I know nothing. That’s just my instinct and I go with my gut and my gut’s always right. I’m just telling you, Melania’s got the worst job in the country and I don’t think she wants do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that’s it.”
In response the First Lady responded,
“It is sad when people try to further their own agenda by commenting on me and my family, especially when they don’t know me.”
Via Daily Mail:
“The short statement directly contradicted Mika’s claim to know the first lady – and came despite Melania’s first interview after her husband announced he was running for office being with Brzezinski.
Ironically she said then: ‘We have thick skin, and we know that people will judge him and people will call names.
She gave the interview inside her lavish and very golden New York City penthouse.
Brzezinski had commented during her television show with Scarborough that she’s fond of Melania as she gave her version of events on the night that’s at the center of their dispute with the president.
On New Year’s Eve she said that she and Scarborough stopped by Trump’s Palm Beach club at the president-elect’s request.”
Melania’s comments were interesting considering her first interview on the campaign trail was with the very reporter she just hit back at. Her account also directly contradicts Mika’s. Clearly she indicates they don’t nor did they know each other. This change in events is sadly unfortunate.
The President had previously offered to host their wedding at Mar-a-Lago and even offered to officiate. They had a very long conversation when Trump’s son in law inserted himself into the conversation. Scarborough even confirmed this after the inauguration when they had visited the White House.
Mika had reportedly said the following about the option of his officiating the wedding and even hosting it,
“The White House that I grew up in was an amazing place. If it weren’t Trump, it might be something to think about. The mental picture is just fascinating, but the reality is just . . . no. No, no, no, no, no.’”
After the President sent out the tweets the news anchors said the following about the President,
“We are both certain that the man is not mentally equipped to continue watching our show, ‘Morning Joe.”
While they denied that Mika had a facelift they admitted she tweaked her chin and that she had done something to her chin skin. But she insisted she never kept it a secret and was very public about it. They insist the President sent out his recent tweets after they refused to stop negative coverage of him. Despite alleged allegations that Trump said they would allow a tabloid to post a negative article about them if they didn’t stop. However, this was never proven.
Scarborough reportedly tweeted,
“Yet another lie. I have texts from your top aides and phone records. Also, those records show I haven’t spoken with you in many months. Why do you keep lying about things that are so easily disproven? What is wrong with you?”
White House advisor Kellyanne Conway told George Stephanopoulos of ABC the following about the controversy,
“I endorse the president’s right to fight back when he is being mercilessly attacked. I didn’t say I endorsed his attacks; I never said that. Bottom line: I endorse his ability to connect on social media with Americans.”
The First Lady proved that she is willing and able to defend herself and her family when they come under attack. Most importantly, she defends her husbands right to fight back and defend himself. She is a woman of few words but when she does speak people listen and they listen carefully.
While the mainstream liberal media has no problem attacking the White House administration, Melania shut them down in just one sentence with grace, class, and dignity. Proving she does not need to succumb to their level in order to engage with people who are beneath her. Good for her for defending herself and her husband.
