Melania Trump sent a text on January 6 that gives some insight Into how she was feeling about what was happening that day. Trump White House press secretary and Melania Trump’s ex-spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, is causing major waves with her book now that excerpts from the memoir are now making the rounds. It gives the readers insight into what the former first lady was thinking about on Jan. 6, the day of the insurrection on Capitol Hill.
Grishman recounts how the day went down from her perspective and how the communication between her and Melania quickly dissolved as protestors breached the security barricades and stormed the Capitol. According to the excerpt, via Politico, she texted the first lady, “Do you want to tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence?” The reported answer from Melania might shock some, while others might think it would be exactly how she would answer. “No,” she wrote back, according to Grisham. The first lady was too busy to be bothered with the violence unfolding just down the street in Washington, D.C. because “she was at the White House preparing for a photo shoot of a rug she had selected.”
