I feel like I’ve said it a thousand times over the course of my career, but yet it always bears repeating — you can’t make this stuff up.
Since her family’s humiliating departure from the White House, in a cloud of shame and scandal that’s only gotten heavier in her husband’s post-presidency days, Melania Trump has seemingly been teetering back and forth on the edge of staying out of the public’s eye and trying to remain relevant in a world that’s grown to largely hate her guts.
While you don’t see much from (or of) Melania Trump these days, it does seem as though every couple of months or so, she comes back on the scene with some sort of weird scheme — whether it’s NFTs (non-fungible token) of her eyeball, bizarre “charity” functions that aren’t actually all that legit, or quite literally auctioning off her personal belongings, complete with an autograph.
Ever since her White House days, these random schticks seem to come out of the clear, blue yonder, and often disappear from the scene just as fast as they came about — presumably after she realizes they’re not actually going to be all that successful because no one really cares what she has to say or do these days.
But nevertheless, Melania keeps on keeping on, and with the holiday season just around the corner now, it seems the washed-up ex-First Lady has now set her sights on a Christmas ornament/NFT mashup gimmick that’s rightfully earning her an earful of hilarious mockery.

Of course, no one will soon forget the infamous leaked tapes of private conversations between Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, the ex-First Lady’s former aide and best friend, and Melania Trump, that saw Melania having this to say about the Christmas season:
OK, and then I do it and I say that I’m working on Christmas and planning for the Christmas and they said, ‘Oh, what about the children that they were separated?’ Give me a f****** break. Where they were saying anything when Obama did that? I can not go, I was trying get the kid reunited with the mom. I didn’t have a chance – needs to go through the process and through the law.”
Melania’s exact words have been somewhat hijacked and taken out of context over the years, with many people summing her rant up as “who gives a f*** about Christmas,” which isn’t exactly what she said. But, the sentiment is still there, all the same.
So, as you can imagine, people were left howling on social media when the news of her ornament grift — that’s supposedly supposed to see the proceeds donated to her “Be Best” initiative to help kids in foster care — hit the media cycle:
Melania Trump is now selling $35 to $45 Christmas ornaments on her website..
I seem to remember that she was caught on tape in 2018 asking “who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decorations?”
Money talks, hypocrisy walks..

All of the sudden Melania wants give a f*ck about all of the Christmas stuff as she sells $45 tree ornaments. That’s because it’s all too easy to siphon and grift the hell out of their gullible supporters.

Melania’s selling Xmas ornaments with “a portion” of the profits going to charity. She explains, “The holidays are a special time when I like to make cash money and keep most of it for myself. For an extra fee I’ll come to your house and sneer at your tree” pic.twitter.com/42GpCuQgsF
