If you were to ask which Trump is the worst Trump, chances are most people are going to answer with a resounding “Donald.” And frankly, it makes sense, considering he’s the one with the most power and ability to do the most damage. I mean, the guy tweets like a toddler all day long with the nuclear codes just a few feet away from him at pretty much all times. The guy is terrifying in a myriad of ways.
But oftentimes I find myself wondering if, in the midst of the never-ending crisis that is the Trump presidency, people aren’t giving his third wife, First Lady Melania Trump the evil witch credit she so deeply deserves.
In my not-so-humble opinion, Melania Trump may very well be the single most entitled, selfish, overgrown brat this world has ever had the displeasure of knowing. And as it turns out, her former friend’s tell-all book all but confirmed my suspicions.
Over the past several weeks, we’ve been hit with a multitude of revelations from Stephanie Winston-Wolkoff’s book, Melania and Me, about the First Lady and her family. But if any of them had Melania’s name written all over it, it was this one.
According to Wolkoff, Melania, despite the fact that literally, her only job is to be Trump’s wife, was rather unhappy with the plane that was dedicated to her for her trips between DC and NYC and down to Mar-a-Lago for her “spa days.” Evidently, she found the plane to be too “constrained” and wasn’t happy about the fact that it wasn’t equipped with wi-fi.
Apparently, Stephanie learned of the feud between the First Lady and her then-chief of staff Lindsay Reynolds via a text message while she was sitting in a press conference. Wolkoff described the plane issues as a “huge point of contention” between the East and West Wings. According to her former pal, Melania’s plane woes were worked out behind her back — with Reynold’s giving a room in the East Wing that was previously dedicated to gift wrapping to the military in exchange for a better aircraft for Mel. This move miffed Wolkoff at the time, as she didn’t feel like deals such as this should be made behind the First Lady’s back.
Ultimately, though, Melania was given the use of the Boeing C-40 Clipper — which I supposed soothed her crybaby tantrum.
