A bold Melania Trump told her husband she is not taking part in an interview after the infamous 2005 Access Hollywood video leaked.
During the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trump was humiliated after a clip surfaced where he was bragging to Billy Bush about grabbing women by the pus$y.
While his supporters rallied around him, Melania was horrified and told the former reality TV star she is not standing next to him like so many other wives of shamed politicians have done.
In his book Fear, that will hit stores on September 11, veteran Washington Post reporter Bob Woodward revealed that the campaign suggested that Trump sat down for an interview with wife Melania on one side of him and daughter Ivanka on the other.
However, Melania was quick to say no. Woodward wrote: “It was clear she was seething. Not doing that, Melania said in her Slovenian accent, dismissively waving her hand. No way. No, no, no.”
After declining to take part in the interview, the former model shared a statement bashing the Donald and his behavior.
She said back then: “The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me. This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”
Mrs. Trump continued to poke her husband by appearing to the debate in St. Louis, days after the tape was leaked wearing a bright pink pu$sy bow blouse.
According to Woodward, “behind the scenes, she’s a hammer’ because of her ability to discern who was sucking up and who was telling the truth to Trump.”
A source told Hollywood Life that Melania feels that things will get more hectic in the next months and added: “Melania is bracing herself for the next couple of months. With the midterms approaching, [Robert] Mueller’s report nearing completion, and the Democrats becoming ever more vocal with their calls for impeachment, she’s concerned Donald’s going to start to unravel seriously. Whenever Donald feels painted into a corner, he goes on the serious attack, and there’s one hell of a lot of pressure building right now.”
The first family has a lot going on.
