Melania Trump received’t be shifting into the White Home for an additional six months or so, if we survive that lengthy… or if her husband doesn’t get impeached, or if he doesn’t keel over from consuming ten baggage of Lay’s chips every single day. Whereas I’d advocate that Melania ought to simply put her ft up and luxuriate in her Child Fists-free time in New York, evidently she is making some strikes for her precise, this-is-really-happening First Woman’s workplace, also called the East Wing places of work. Based on Web page Six, Melania has made her first large rent: she’s appointed Stephanie Winston Wolkoff as her “chief strategist.” Wolkoff labored for Vogue for years and as soon as famously mentioned concerning the Met Gala – which she organized for a time – “no cash, no come-y.”
Melania Trump has had sufficient of left-leaning stars equivalent to Chelsea Handler taking low cost photographs at her and her son, Barron — and is finalizing her personal crew of staffers to battle again. The primary woman has thus far remained silent amid a torrent of social-media assaults on herself and her and President Donald Trump’s 10-year-old son. Comic Handler mentioned in a video interview with Selection that Melania “can barely communicate English,” then adopted up with the tweet, “Blink in the event you need assistance @MELANIATRUMP.”
Now President Trump’s private lawyer, Michael Cohen, is firing again on Melania’s behalf. He informed Web page Six, “Disgrace on Chelsea Handler for attacking our first woman in such a despicable method.” Cohen added, “Don’t be fooled by her accent. Melania is shiny and articulate. To be clear, our first woman speaks a number of languages, I consider 5. What number of languages do you communicate, Chelsea?”
White Home insiders say that the primary woman is near finalizing her crew to handle these assaults. Sources near the administration solely inform Web page Six former Vogue staffer and Met Ball organizer Stephanie Winston Wolkoff — who additionally masterminded Trump’s inauguration occasions with Tom Barrack — is being tapped as Melania’s chief strategist and helps interview and choose candidates for the primary woman’s chief of employees, communications chief and social secretary.
On Tuesday, the White Home requested for privateness for Barron, after a wave of unwarranted feedback together with one from “Saturday Evening Stay” author Katie Wealthy, who tweeted that the president’s youngest son would turn out to be the nation’s “first homeschool shooter.” Wealthy was suspended from the NBC present and later apologized for the “insensitive” and “inexcusable” tweet. In a quick assertion to the media, which didn’t point out Barron by identify, the White Home famous the “longstanding custom that the youngsters of presidents are afforded the chance to develop up exterior of the political highlight.”
You already know who else ought to get the possibility to develop up in peace? The youngsters of immigrants whose dad and mom are about to be deported by Emperor Child Fists. Even Trump’s personal (grownup) kids have been merely anchor infants to Ivana Trump, you’d assume he would understand that. However I digress. Melania is placing collectively her employees. Will she make the hires proper now, and in that case, what are they going to do for the following six months? Simply sit round Washington and tweet whereas Melania goes purchasing and takes afternoon siestas? I simply must say this too – in fact she selected somebody from Vogue as her “chief strategist.” It’s like placing out an indication that claims “I’m solely right here to look fairly.” Oh, and if Barron is meant to be out of the political highlight, why the f—ok is he on the quilt of this week’s Us Weekly?
