Furious first lady made statement calling Morning Joe co-host someone I ‘don’t know’ and added she was trying to ‘further her own agenda’
Melania Trump issued a furious condemnation of Mika Brzezinski on Friday afternoon after the Morning Joe co-host suggested she wanted out of her marriage to the president.
The first lady issued a statement to DailyMail.com, claiming Brzezinski does not know her, hours after an explosive interview with the MSNBC broadcaster appeared online.
Brzezinski had put some oomph behind unsubstantiated rumors that Melania wants out of her marriage during an interview with InStyle that appeared on the magazine’s website.
‘I know Melania. I haven’t talked to her in months, but if my gut is right, I don’t think she’s going to put up with it much longer,’ Brzezinski said. ‘I know nothing. That’s just my instinct and I go with my gut and my gut’s always right.’
Then, in a startling suggestion she claimed her ‘gut’ was telling her that the first lady was only doing ‘the worst job in the country’ for the sake of her young son, Barron.
‘I’m just telling you, Melania’s got the worst job in the country and I don’t think she wants do it a lot longer. I think she will do it for as long as she has to for her son, and that’s it,’ Brzezinski said.
Later in the day the first lady’s office hit back – hard – issuing a statement for Mrs. Trump.
‘It is sad when people try to further their own agenda by commenting on me and my family, especially when they don’t know me,’ she said.
The short statement directly contradicted Mika’s claim to know the first lady – and came despite Melania’s first interview after her husband announced he was running for office being with Brzezinski.
Ironically she said then: ‘We have thick skin, and we know that people will judge him and people will call names.
She gave the interview inside her lavish and very golden New York City penthouse.
Brzezinski had commented during her television show with Scarborough that she’s fond of Melania as she gave her version of events on the night that’s at the center of their dispute with the president.
On New Year’s Eve she said that she and Scarborough stopped by Trump’s Palm Beach club at the president-elect’s request.
