The View on Melania

Melania Trump recently declared, “I’m the most bullied person in the world” – a statement which has some credence.  To put it into context, the day she made this statement happened to be the 20th anniversary of the murder of Matthew Shepard – a young gay boy who was beaten and left to die in Laramie, Wyoming.  In a twist which further connects these two stories, it was announced on this sad anniversary that his ashes will be interred at Washington’s National Cathedral.  Yes, that Washington – within sight of the place Melania occasionally hangs her pith helmet.

Actress Yvette Nicole Brown was filling in for Joy Behar on The View last week.  On Friday, reporter Tom Llamas was promoting his sit-down with Melania.  One of the topics was the accusations of infidelity against Mr. Trump.  Yvette said, “Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?”  The response from the White House was swift.  A spokesperson for the First Lady said, “Check your facts before you accuse someone of being a mistress.  She’s your @FLOTUS – she deserves your respect & certainly not your lies.  Disgusting.”  Sarah Huckabee Sanders Tweeted, “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.”  Yvette said, “I stand by every word I said.  My mom taught me that respect is earned.  And thankfully we live in a nation – at least for now – where I don’t have to bow down to dear leader or his third wife.”  She added, “My views are my own.  And I own every one.”
