Yesterday’s surprise January 6th public hearing saw absolutely brutally damning testimony against disgraced, scandal-ridden ex-President Donald Trump and his innermost circle.
We saw stomach-churning testimony regarding Donald Trump’s absolutely horrifying behavior on January 6th, 2021 — ranging from the fact that he and his Chief of Staff Mark Meadows knew full and well that many of his supporters at his infamous Stop The Steal rally were armed to the gills with deadly weapons and body armor, to the unhinged and downright violent reaction Trump had upon learning that he would not be allowed to go to the Capitol with his raging, unhinged mob, where they would go on to violently siege the government building with Congress inside.
But now, one former Trump White House aide has broken their silence on the topic of that fateful January 2021 day, with regard to what exactly Donald Trump’s wife was up to, as her husband’s mob of supporters violently stormed the nation’s Capitol building. Or, rather really, what she wasn’t up to.
Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump’s Chief of Staff at the time of the January 6th attack, took to her Twitter account last night and released a screenshot of a one-word text message she received from the then-First Lady, appearing to prove that Melania was given a chance to help bring an end to the violence and destruction… And she downright refused:

Grisham, who also formerly served as a White House press secretary and communications director under the Trump administration, was one of many to turn in her resignation on January 6th, 2021. However, unlike others, she made no mention of the insurrection at the time of her resignation. Instead, she sent out a tweet saying she was “proud of the many accomplishments of this Administration.”
However, Grisham certainly didn’t stay loyal to the Trump family following her departure from Donald’s White House. Stephanie went on to release a rather damning tell-all book, and has since heavily cooperated in many of the investigations against the ex-president and his family.
Ultimately, Melania Trump didn’t tweet a word on January 6th, only speaking out five days later to say she was “disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week.” But even with such a somber and serious topic at hand, Mel couldn’t seem to pass up the chance to air out her own grievances, going on to write, “I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks and false misleading accusations on me.”
