First Lady Melania Trump has remained silent in the face of the many insults hurled at her and her family recently. That is about to change, according to White House insiders who say that the first lady is close to finalizing her team to manage these attacks.
Most of these defamatory comments have been coming from comedians, who seem to be taking random shots at the First Lady and her son, Barron. Chelsea Handler is one of the offenders who said in an interview with Variety that she wouldn’t interview Melania Trump because “She can barely speak English.” She followed that up with this insulting tweet:
Blink if you need help @MELANIATRUMP

Via Page Six: “President Trump’s personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, is firing back on Melania’s behalf. “Shame on Chelsea Handler for attacking our first lady in such a despicable manner.”
Cohen added, “Don’t be fooled by her accent. Melania is bright and articulate. To be clear, our first lady speaks multiple languages, I believe five. How many languages do you speak, Chelsea?”
Due to an unwarranted wave of insults and commentary on the President and First Lady’s son, Barron, the White House asked on Tuesday that the American people respect his privacy in accordance with the “longstanding tradition that the children of presidents are afforded the opportunity to grow up outside of the political spotlight.”
This due to comments from SNL writer Katie Rich, who maliciously speculated that Barron Trump would be the “first homeschool shooter.” Also failed comedian Stephen Spinola’s tweet that said Barron Trump “…looks like a very handsome date-rapist-to-be.”
It’s becoming more and more understandable why Melania Trump made the decision to let her son finish out the school year in his current residence and school. Moving is tough on any family, and this move promises to be a rough one for Melania and Barron.
Do you think Melania should retaliate? Let us know in the comments.
