The media works overtime to take negative shots not only at Trump but also at his marriage whenever possible.
After the firing of the president’s personal assistant, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tried to revive the disputed rumor that Melania Trump cried after her husband won the 2016 election, according to Mediaite — and not tears of joy.
Had to be Fired
MSNBC host Joe Scarborough was discussing the recent firing of Trump’s personal assistant Madeleine Westerhout.
Westerhout apparently spilled some personal stories about the Trump family during an off-the-record conversation with journalists. However, the media outlet decided to publish the comments, bringing considerable heat down on Westerhout.
President Trump was unusually kind in his comments about Westerhout after her firing, and he even stated that he forgave her for her comments.
Scarborough agreed that Westerhout should have been fired, but then he took a cheap shot at Trump by likening the tears allegedly shed by Westerhout on election night to the report in Michael Wolff’s controversial book Fire & Fury that Melania Trump also cried on election night.
Tears of Sadness
According to Wolff’s book, Melania burst into tears when Trump was elected president. However, the tears were not of joy, especially given the fact that Donald Trump had allegedly told Melania there was no way he would ever be able to win the election.
A similar story was told in a Tim Alberta book.
Both authors make it sound as though Trump’s decision to run for office was nothing more than a publicity stunt that backfired. The story they told was eerily reminiscent of the plotline for the 1972 movie, The Candidate.
According to the tale, only after Trump was elected did he actually believe that he could do the job and deserved to win.
The White House has already pushed back on the story told by Wolff, insisting his version was completely false (not the first “fact” to be disputed in the book).
There was no need for Scarborough to bring this up other than to take another cheap shot at the Trumps. It is a classless move, but sadly, it is typical of the scrutiny and bias the Trumps receive routinely from today’s media personalities.
