Ivana Trump is at it again. And if history is any indication, Melania Trump will soon join in the fray. (Video below.)
Last month, Ivana, President Trump’s first wife seemed to get under the skin of First Lady when she told Good Morning America, “I’m basically first Trump wife. I’m first lady.”
The office of First Lady of the United States, responded in truly unprecedented fashion, releasing a statement asserting that Trump’s first wife was just trying to “sell books” and saying that, “There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. Unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise.”
Setting aside for a moment that “attention-seeking and self-serving noise” would have made for a highly accurate slogan for the Trump campaign, it was shocking to see even this White House’s First Lady degrade her position by engaging in such reality show bickering.
Ivana today went on Ireland’s The Ray D’Arcy Show and laughed at the response, ignoring her own obnoxious part in the ordeal but accurately describing Melania’s response as it was: “First Lady went bananas.”
Ivana smiled and got in one more not so subtle dig at Melania’s expense when asked if she thought the First Lady was doing a good job. Ivana shrugged her shoulders, said “I think she’s trying her best,” and grinned for the camera.
That’s actually more diplomatic than anything we’ve seen from the White House in ten months.
