Melania Trump's office has lashed out at former staffer Stephanie Grisham, after Grisham's new book revealed that Melania Trump refused to condemn the rioters on January 6th. Grisham actually resigned just a few hours after the failed insurrection, and there's little doubt that Melania's refusal to condemn the actions of that day played a role in it. But in an email to Politico, Melania's office accused Grisham of being a bad friend, a bad staffer, and a opportunistic individual looking to make a quick buck off her new book at Melania's expense. Ring of Fire's Farron Cousins explains what's happening.

Melania Trump's office is not happy about Stephanie Grisham's forthcoming new book, especially after it was revealed within recent days that Stephanie Grisham did ask Melania Trump on the day of January 6th if she wanted to tweet something out, basically saying like, hey, uh, protesting is okay and cool and great. But violent protesting is not okay. And Melania Trump responded, according to the book, no. So no, Melania Trump did not want to condemn the January 6th Capitol rioters. And later that day, by the way, Stephanie Grisham resigned her post as Melania's chief of staff. And now, now that this information is public, now that it's out there in the ether, Melania Trump's office is furious. They issued a statement yesterday attacking Ms. Grisham saying the following. The intent behind this book is obvious. It is an attempt to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships and unprofessional behavior in the White House.

Through mistruth and betrayal she seeks to gain relevance and money at the expense of Mrs. Trump. Okay. So I guess she was press secretary, not chief of staff, either way. Ms. Grisham has actually known Melania Trump far longer than they were in the White House. They used to be friends before Donald Trump even ran for president. That's how Stephanie Grisham got roped into all of this. And of course she was on the Trump inaugural committee, reports tell us that Ms. Grisham is actually cooperating with the investigators, looking into potential price fixing and price gouging by the Trump inaugural committee and the Trump organization. So there's that as well. And that could help explain why Melania's office got so pissy about such an innocuous thing. I mean, let's be honest here. Did we actually expect Melania Trump to come out and condemn the Capitol rioters? Even a half-ass condemnation like, hey, protesting is great.

Just don't get violent. No. Nobody expected anything from Melania Trump. Yet we were still repeatedly let down. Like literally no expectations whatsoever and you still couldn't even meet that. So I don't think that this really is just about this statement that, hey, she didn't tweet on January 6th. No. I think it runs deeper than that. And I think it's because the Trump world knows that Grisham has information about them. Now, as I said last week, when everybody was talking about this book coming out saying it was going to burn down Trump world. Sure. But if we're just going to get stories like these, you know, oh, hey, Melania Trump could have done this and she didn't. What a jerk, right? We know they're jerks. We know they're all horrible people. The thing I want to see is what Stephanie Grisham knows about any potential criminal activity on behalf of the Trump family or the Trump organization.

Again, she is dead center of that Trump inaugural committee investigation and is if reports are to be believed cooperating with the investigators. So that's what I want to know about. You can tell stories all day long about how horrible Melania Trump is and honestly, it shouldn't shock anybody. We know these things.
