FLOTUS Spox Slams New Trump Book Over Melania Anecdote: Belongs In ‘Bargain Fiction Section’


A new book with a lot of apparent insider information into Trumpworld is sending shockwaves throughout the political world.

The most recent character in this drama to emerge with a statement is Melania Trump.

Excerpts from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House paint Melania out as someone who didn’t even want to be First Lady and who wished her husband would lose:

“Melania Trump, who had been assured by her husband that he wouldn’t become president, could return to inconspicuously lunching. Losing would work out for everybody. Losing was winning.

Shortly after 8 p.m. on Election Night, when the unexpected trend — Trump might actually win — seemed confirmed, Don Jr. told a friend that his father, or DJT, as he calls him, looked as if he had seen a ghost. Melania was in tears—and not of joy.”

The first lady denied these claims Wednesday with a passionate response through a spokesperson saying it will “be sold in the bargain fiction section”:

In addition to Melania Trump; Donald Trump, Sarah Sanders, and Donald Trump Jr. have all responded to claims in the book, including from Steve Bannon.
