Melania Trump Tells Fox News’ Sean Hannity Journalists Are ‘Opportunists’

The first lady said the hardest thing about being in the White House is dealing with the media.

In an exclusive interview with Sean Hannity last night, Melania Trump debuted new blonde hair and called journalists, comedians, and other members of the media liars.

The segment began with Mrs. Trump talking about her relationship with the troops, her stint abroad, and her romantic relationship with Donald. Then Hannity threw a real softball and asked her about the most challenging part of being a first lady.

Surely there are many reasons why being a first lady is difficult, but instead of speaking about how the White House has changed her life, she echoed her husband’s attacks on the media.

“I would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family name to advance themselves, from comedians to journalists to performers, book writers… The problem is they are writing the history and it’s not correct,” Melania said when asked what’s been the hardest part of her new life in Washington, D.C.

She then went on to say, “They like to focus on the gossip. And I would like that they focus on the substance and what we do, not just about nonsense.”

Well, maybe someone should tell her that the gossip everyone’s talking about is whether or not her husband will share a cell with his former lawyer Michael Cohen in prison.

Once the interview aired, people on social media could not help but remind Melania that the only person writing false history is her husband.
