First lady Melania TrumpMelania TrumpFormer aide sees Melania Trump as 'the doomed French queen': book If another 9/11 happened in a divided 2021, could national unity be achieved again? Former Trump aide Stephanie Grisham planning book: report MORE's office is ripping The View and guest host Yvette Nicole Brown for remarks about President TrumpDonald TrumpTexas announces election audit in four counties after Trump demand Schumer sets Monday showdown on debt ceiling-government funding bill Pennsylvania AG sues to block GOP subpoenas in election probe MORE's "mistresses."
Trump spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said the show needed to check its facts before going with base speculation and ripped it for a second day "of attacks."
The fight began when Brown, who was filling in on the show for "The View" host Joy Behar, at one point suggested that Melania Trump might not be upset about the president's affairs because she might have been involved with the president while he was already married.
“Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?” asked Brown.
Grisham offered a blistering response.
Day 2 of attacks from @TheView. @YNB check your facts before you accuse someone of being a mistress. She’s your @FLOTUS - she deserves your respect & certainly not your lies. Disgusting. #disrespectful #accusation #LiberalMedia @TomLlamasABC @ABCWorldNews— Stephanie Grisham (@StephGrisham45) October 12, 2018
In an interview with ABC, Melania Trump was asked about her husband's alleged infidelity and whether it had hurt their marriage.
“It is not a concern and focus of mine,” the first lady said in response to ABC reporter Tom Llamas, who appeared on "The View" to discuss the interview.
Grisham's tweet also included hashtags for Llamas and ABC News, which oversees "The View."
Grisham also slammed The View on Thursday for its criticism of the first lady.
"I do stand with women, but we need to show the evidence," Trump said in the interview that aired Wednesday night. "You cannot just say to somebody I was sexually assaulted."
Typical attack on the @flotus at @theview. Heaven forbid they talk about her successful trip & the children she met & helped. #biased #typical #innocentuntilprovenguilty cc: @ABCWorldNews @TomLlamasABC— Stephanie Grisham (@StephGrisham45) October 11, 2018
