I’m swimming in so much schadenfreude today I may have to hire Jerry Falwell’s pool boy to clean up after me.
Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, Melania Trump's former friend and adviser, is set to release a tell-all book in September called Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with The First Lady, and on Monday, journalist Yashar Ali reported that Wolkoff “taped the first lady making disparaging remarks about the president and his adult children” that will be revealed in the book.
Though Ali's report doesn't include the remarks the first lady evidently made, they're said to include “harsh comments about Ivanka Trump,” and in fact, Ali says that “most” of the disparaging comments “were reserved for Ivanka Trump.” It's reportedly not clear whether the book itself will disclose that the remarks in question came from audio recordings.
Someone making “disparaging” comments about innocent, doe-eyed Ivanka Trump? No way. Is that any way to treat someone who’s singlehandedly created 15 million jobs?
Wolkoff's book will be the latest tell-all to emerge from someone in President Trump's orbit after one recently published by his niece, Mary Trump. Last week, The Washington Post revealed that Mary Trump recorded conversations with the president's sister, Maryanne Trump Barry, in which she says the president has “no principles” and that “you can't trust him.”
Oh, yeah. The Maryanne Trump Barry news. Forgot about that bit.
Say, why do so many people turn on the Trumps before writing tell-alls? It’s almost as though no one can stay loyal to people who stab them in the back anymore.
