First Lady Melania Trump is absolutely furious.
And she made that very clear on Sunday — but in her usual classy manner. IJR reports:
Mika Brzezinski, the “Morning Joe” co-host, was the source of deep controversy this week, as President Donald Trump openly feuded with the MSNBC show over its coverage of his presidency. Trump attacked the hosts of the show personally over their intelligence and looks.
Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough responded, questioning the mental stability of the president. In the fallout of the grudge match, Mika expanded her criticism to the entire first family, going after the First Lady Melania and her son, Barron Trump.
In an interview, Brzezinski claimed Melania has “the worst job in the country” and that it was only because of Barron that she was remaining the first lady.
“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 to 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.”
After the salacious accusation, the first lady hit back.
Melania responded in a statement, calling the “Morning Joe” co-host “sad.” Melaina said Brzezinski does not “know” her and was using the first family to further her “own agenda.”
“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.”
Brzezinski bringing Barron into the fray to attack the president clearly struck a nerve for the first lady. Just this month, Melania and 11-year-old Barron officially moved into the White House.
