Lame-duck President Donald Trump’s third wife appears to be toying around with the possibility of a book deal after her husband’s reign of terror ends in the White House in January, according to Page Six. Sources told the outlet that the usually private Melania Trump has been taking meetings about penning a memoir on her time as the first lady. And we can only imagine the chapters titled, “Everyone is mean to me,” and “It’s unfair!” And it could be possibly titled, “I Write Book.”
And if she secures a book deal, then the income would be hers.
“Melania is in meetings to write her White House memoir,” a source told the outlet. “And it would be her money — a chance for her to earn on her own.”
“I’m told her husband is encouraging her” to write the book, the source added. “She’s not done, or going as quietly as you might expect.” Plus, “in the wake of Stephanie Winston Wolkoff’s betrayal, in both print and on secret tapes, Melania’s story could be worth big money.”
Wolkoff was besties with Melania and went on to write a tell-all book that gave us a glimpse into the Trumps’ dysfunctional family. The book became a #1 bestseller, and that appears to be what Melania Trump would like to accomplish.
“A book from Melania could set the record straight on some of her notable White House episodes — from that infamous “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket that she wore in 2018 to enduring a coronavirus infection,” the outlet notes.
“The book business surrounding the Trumps — pro and con — has been booming,” Page Six writes. “We recently exclusively reported that Trump relative Mary L. Trump is already shopping a follow-up to her best-selling tell-all, “Too Much and Never Enough,” and that President Trump could land a multimillion-dollar book deal himself after leaving office.”
Well, Donald Trump may need to land a book deal since he owes close to a billion dollars, and half of that is up for payment at the start of next year. The Trumps have already made enough money from taxpayers, so that’s a hard pass from me on reading what Melania has to say. Unless she wants to explain why she sat idly by while hundreds of thousands of Americans died on her husband’s watch while he held super-spreader rallies.
