Apparently the First Lady could only stay quiet for so long.
Melania Trump penned a statement on the official White House web site looking to set the record straight.
This after weeks of her former ally Stephanie Winston Wolkoff airing their dirty laundry for the world to see.
And Mrs. Trump finally heard enough and came out swinging.
In a Friday post labeled, “Give Focus to Our Next Generation” she sounded off.
“We all know that more often than not, information that could be helpful to children is lost in the noise made by self-serving adults. I have most recently found this to be the case as major news outlets eagerly covered salacious claims made by a former contractor who advised my office.”
Without naming her one-time associate, the first lady went on to add: “A person who said she “made me” even though she hardly knew me, and someone who clung to me after my husband won the Presidency.”
”This is a woman who secretly recorded our phone calls, releasing portions from me that were out of context, then wrote a book of idle gossip trying to distort my character.” Clearly, the smears have taken a toll on her.
She then warned Wolkoff was a cautionary tale. “Her “memoir” included blaming me for her ailing health from an accident she had long ago, and for bad news coverage that she brought upon herself and others.”
”Never once looking within at her own dishonest behavior and all in an attempt to be relevant. These kinds of people only care about their personal agenda—not about helping others.”
In addition Mrs. Trump stated, “Once again, outlets chose to focus their coverage on pettiness over my positive work. There are plenty of opportunists out there who only care about themselves, and unfortunately seek to self-aggrandize by knowingly taking advantage of my goodwill.”
Along with, “Anyone who is focused on tearing things down for their own gain, after knowing what I stand for, has lost sight of what we are here to accomplish and who we are here to serve. To push forward a personal agenda that attempts to defame my office and the efforts of my team, only takes away from our work to help children.”
Wolkoff’s book is titled, “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of my Friendship with the First Lady.” It was released at the beginning of September. While making serious noise in the news cycle since.
Mrs. Trump was quickly met with jeers following the circulation of her post. Is she right to speak up? Or maybe just better to have let it go?
