Sanders Defends Melania After ‘The View’s’ Mistress Insult: ‘More Class Than the Women Who Bully Her’

After a guest host on “The View” suggested first lady Melania Trump was once a “mistress” of President Donald Trump on Friday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders came in with guns blazing to the first lady’s defense — and reminded the ladiess of how classy she is.

“Sad @TheView continues their disgusting attacks on @FLOTUS,” she tweeted Friday. “The left’s ‘war on women’ they disagree with is a disgrace. @FLOTUS is strong, accomplished, and has a lot more class than the women who bully her.”

Sanders’ comment comes on the heels of a similar statement from Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, who fired back at “The View” in a tweet of her own.

“Day 2 of attacks from @TheView,” she wrote. “@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.”

The fiery statements follow a remark from guest co-host Yvette Nicole Brown, who filled in for Joy Behar.

While discussing the first lady’s lack of interest in rumors about her husband’s alleged infidelity, Brown asked, “Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?”

Watch the moment below:

Later in the episode, guest and ABC News correspondent Tom Llamas chided Brown the for insult.

“Before we go, I do want to say something. There was a comment made at this table today about Mrs. Trump,” he said. “I just want to say, whether you like her or you don’t like her, she deserves our respect because she is our first lady.”

Although Brown then added an “allegedly” to her statement, she has continued to stand by her words in the face of backlash, even tweeting, “I stand by every word I said”:

She further added insult to injury by addressing Grisham directly, repeating the “disgusting” rumor, and trying to defend it.

“Hey @StephGrisham45 was Melania NOT his mistress?” she asked. “I’m only going by HIS math of when they got together. That and that he’s had multiple mistresses before. Many that he’s paid off. I added an allegedly later. Was that not enough?”

In an interview with Llamas, which aired Friday night, the first lady shared her thoughts on the criticism she received from the left and the media.

“You can criticize, whatever you want to say, you can say. But it will not stop me to do what’s right,” she said.

What do you think?

I don’t watch the view. But you have to look at the people making the comments. Are any one of them to be taken seriously? I lost all respect for Abby Huntsman for joining this show. I thought she respected herself more than this. To attack the First Lady… well… Read more »
