View Co-Host Yvette Nicole Brown: Is Melania Not Concerned About Trump’s Mistresses ‘Because She Was One of Them?’
ABC News correspondent Tom Llamas appeared on The View this morning to preview his exclusive interview with Melania Trump, and he ended up defending her at one point.
One of the topics that came up during the interview (and during the View discussion) was President Donald Trump‘s infidelity. The First Lady dismissively said it’s not a concern or focus of hers, while also knocking some of the media speculation surrounding her marriage.
After they played that clip from the interview, guest co-host Yvette Nicole Brown asked, “Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?”
As she continued her question, Abby Huntsman quickly jumped in to say to Llamas, “You specifically asked her if she loved her husband.”
Llamas talked about that and moved on.
But towards the end of the segment, he made a point of saying, “Before we go, I do want to say something. There was a comment made at this table today about Mrs. Trump.”
“Allegedly,” Brown added to her initial remarks.
“I just want to say whether you like her or you don’t like her, she deserves our respect ’cause she is our First Lady,” Llamas added.
“I don’t respect her,” Brown said.
Brown’s comments have already resulted in a White House response:
Day 2 of attacks from @TheView. @YNB check your facts before you accuse someone of being a mistress. She’s your @FLOTUS – she deserves your respect & certainly not your lies. Disgusting. #disrespectful #accusation #LiberalMedia @TomLlamasABC @ABCWorldNews
