The holiday season is just around the corner now and times are tough for everyone these days. Hell, even Melania Trump herself has had to launch a new grift — in the form of her recently released new line of Christmas ornaments with corresponding NFTs (non-fungible tokens), complete with her autograph on every piece — to get people to pay any attention to her.
On the website, the new line is hawked as “six limited edition Christmas ornaments with corresponding NFTs are inspired by the American experience and spirit.”
But, like so many of her other gimmicky grifts, it seems as though Melania isn’t actually having a ton of success in her new Christmastime venture — undoubtedly due in large part to the fact that, just two years ago, her own best friend and former aide, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, leaked the recordings of a private conversation she had with the then First Lady, in which Mel didn’t seem all that deep into the Christmas spirit.
“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,” Melania was heard saying on the infamous leaked tapes. “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.
But now, a full two years since that scandal broke, Melania has now suddenly decided to publicly address the whole ordeal in a positively nasty rant against Winston Wolkoff and the media, leading us to believe that her past remarks are coming around to bite her in the ass when it comes to her new ornament line, the proceeds of which are supposedly supposed to be donated to her “Be Best” initiative to help kids in foster care.
In a lengthy statement released to her Twitter account this week, Melania Trump fumed:
While I was serving as First Lady of our country, Stephanie Wolkoff secretly recorded several of our conversations. Wolkoff then spitefully edited and released our conversation to create the perception that Christmas is not significant to me.
I will personally set the record straight because the mainstream media has failed to provide context for these misleading exchanges. Christmas is an important time for me, my family, and the American people, and my devotion to the holiday is personal and profoundly serious.
Most people will agree that reuniting migrant children with their parents is more important than discussing Christmas decorations during summertime. The fact that Wolkoff deleted this part of our conversation, where I expressed hope to reunite families split apart at the southern border, exposes her malicious intent.
Wolkoff is untrustworthy. Her contract with the First Lady’s Office was terminated in February 2018, and she was later charged with violating the confidentiality clause of her White House Employment Agreement.”

I’m not so sure you’ll ever outrun that demon, sweetie.
