Last week,   five people died   as rioters incited by President Donald Trump   stormed the U.S. Capitol   seeking   lawmakers to lynch . But First Lady Melania Trump has identified the worst thing about the entire horrific spectacle—people saying mean things about her online.

In a deeply   weird and jarring farewell statement   posted by the White House early Monday morning, Melania first paid tribute to those who lost their lives in last week’s violence carried out in support of her husband, before going on to settle some scores against unspecified people who she claims have “attacked” her over the past few days since the riots.

“I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week,” she began, in a paragraph which, at first, you assume is a condemnation of Trumpist rioters. But she then goes on to say: “I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me—from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain.”

It’s not exactly clear what she’s referring to—it’s hard to believe that Melania has really been at the forefront of anyone’s mind since last week’s unprecedented assault on American democracy. It could be a reference to a   CNN report that   she was doing a photoshoot at the White House when rioters were laying siege to the Capitol on behalf of her husband.




It could also refer to Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who previously served as an aide to the first lady, who condemned her last week. In an   article for The Daily Beast , Melania’s former BFF wrote after the Capitol riot: “It was an assault on human life and our great democracy. Unfortunately, our president and first lady have little, if any, regard for either.” Her chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham,   resigned   on the day of the insurrection.

Elsewhere in her decidedly odd statement, Melania offered her first condemnation of the riots, five days after they happened. She wrote that she “absolutely condemn[s] the violence that has occurred on our Nation’s Capitol,” and added: “I implore people to stop the violence, never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin or use differing political ideologies as a basis for aggression and viciousness.”

However, she also seems to praise Trump’s supporters—hitting entirely the wrong note in the wake of last week’s violence. “It is inspiring to see that so many have found a passion and enthusiasm in participating in an election, but we must not allow that passion to turn to violence,” she wrote.

It’s also   been noted that   the statement paid tribute to the pro-Trump rioters who died last week before she mentions deceased Capitol Police Officers Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood. Sicknick was   struck by rioters   with a fire extinguisher, while Liebengood   died by apparent suicide   on Saturday, days after responding to the destructive siege.

The statement also misspelled the surname of Ashli Babbitt, the Trump-supporting   Air Force vet who was shot dead   during the riot.

Melania signs off with an apparent farewell message to the American people, saying that serving as first lady has been “the honor of [her] lifetime.” She adds: “I want to thank the millions of Americans who supported my husband and me over the past four years and shown the incredible impact of the American spirit... Most importantly, I ask for healing, grace, understanding, and peace for our great Nation.”

So there goes Melania, signing off exactly as she served: Complaining about people being mean to her, completely misjudging the mood of the nation, and spouting trite soundbites about morality and good behaviour while saying nothing about the deranged actions of her husband.

She must have read my posts here.  I wonder who wrote it for her.  It certainly isn’t her flavor of English.

I used to semi admire her, mostly because by all reports, she is a very good mother to Barron.  Those days are over.

I tended to leave her alone. Of course I tend to leave all the spouses alone, but she just has a habit of opening herself up to attack. Like taking up the cause of combating online bullying while staying completely silent as her husband insults and abuses people online on a daily basis. Did you really not expect to get shit for the Melania? 

And now saying something about the riots and of course making about her by crying about how hurt her feelings were by what "people" were saying about her. Of course I haven't seen any mention of her and the riots until this. If she was hurt before, why would she publicly open herself up to more like this?

I even defended her a few times when snarky remarks were made against her.  As the Raven said...Never more.

I'll make very pointed comments about her girl on girl porn history if someone tells me "She's a very classy" or "best ever" 1st lady.

I don't judge her based on her career choice back then, only by any actions since 2016.

This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens.

After she makes it about herself. I guess you can't be around Trump without his stink rubbing off on you.
