President Trump pushes back against bogus Vanity Fair story slighting the first lady

“She was very clearly the one who said, ‘Either run or don’t run’”

(National SentinelClassy: First lady Melania Trump is usually soft-spoken and quiet when it comes to controversy, but Vanity Fair pushed her a little too far with a recent piece claiming she never wanted her husband to beat Hillary Clinton last year.

In a recent piece the magazine quotes a “family friend” who allegedly said Melania, “the most enigmatic First Lady,” wasn’t prepared for Donald J. Trump to become president.

“This isn’t something she wanted and it isn’t something [Donald Trump] ever thought he’d win,” the unnamed source claimed. “She didn’t want this come hell or high water.”

“I don’t think she thought it was going to happen.”

But the president took up for his wife earlier this week, pushing back against the story, taking to Twitter to send out his own thoughts on the matter.

“Melania, our great and very hard working First Lady, who truly loves what she is doing, always thought that ‘if you run, you will win.’ She would tell everyone that, ‘no doubt, he will win.’ I also felt I would win (or I would not have run) — and Country is doing great!”

Both Trump and Roger Stone, an early advisor to the president, noted that Melania was the one to finally push her husband into running.

“She was very clearly the one who said, ‘Either run or don’t run,’” Stone told Vanity Fair. Paraphrasing Melania, he continued to say “‘Your friends are tired of the striptease. Every four years you talk about it.’”

Stephanie Grisham, spokeswoman for Melania, pointed out that the Vanity Fair piece is filled with “false assertions” by “unnamed sources.”

“As a magazine tailored to women it is shameful that they continue to write salacious and false stories meant to demean Mrs. Trump, rather than focus on her positive work as First Lady and as a supportive wife and mother,” she said in a statement.

She added that Melania is “honored by her role,” and has stated that “on the record many times before.”

Melania has been attacked by the mainstream media since her husband decided to run for the highest elected office in the country.

She’s been criticized over her previous role as a model and for her fashion choices when she visited some storm-ridden communities, as well as being more reserved in her role than her predecessors.
