Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, October 09, 2017

President Donald Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump, called herself "first lady" in an interview Monday ahead of the release of her memoir, Raising Trump. Now his current wife, first lady Melania Trump, is firing back, slamming her comments as "attention-seeking and self-serving noise." Trump boasted of having the "direct number" to her ex-husband at the White House, telling ABC News she talks to the President about once every 14 days. "I have the direct number to White House but I don't really want to call him there because Melania is there and I don't really want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that because I'm basically first Trump wife, OK? I'm first lady, OK?" she told ABC, laughing. The current and only first lady fired back via a sharply-worded statement to CNN from her communications director, Stephanie Grisham.

"Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, DC, and is honored by her role as first lady of the United States. She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books," Grisham said, adding, "There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise."

Ivana and Donald couple divorced in 1992 following his tabloid affair with Marla Maples.

"Donald during the divorce was brutal. He took the divorce as a business deal and he cannot lose, he has to win," Trump said, adding that they are now "friends."

Melania took a look at Ivana and saw what she would look like in 30 years. That would be enough to piss her off.

I'm sure Donnie has already thought of this -- along with adding Ivanka and Marla Maples into "the mix".

Nothing to see here. #1 will succumb during some plastic surgery procedure gone bad. The current occupant will take her kid and go back to the Eastern block and marry her ex pimp. Move along.

His future ex thinks it's pathetic that his first ex is using him to sell books.

Like a dignified lady, she only uses him to sell garbage made in China on QVC.

Ivana reminds me of Tammy Faye Bakker (Messner now), both need to smear lotsa makeup on their face. But Ivana deserves credit for delivering a half decent joke. Tammy's former husband, Jim Bakker, is still making money running a Christian scam channel on cable, after serving time in prison. Jim Bakker and Donald trump have much in common. Proving once again how stupid Americans really are.

Last Saturday on NPR, former French President Sarkozy's wife, Carla Bruni, was singing a collection of classic songs from the fifties and sixties. Beautiful, refreshing, renditions. That former model is a very talented lady.

Never saw the Obamas delve into such trashy behavior.

The Trumps are just one big, happy family. Everyone knows families can have their little spats, and that's why we love them--they are real people, just like you and me...

That's because she hated America. Sleeveless = America hatred.

I wonder if Ivana plagiarized the book or if that trend started with the current first ho.

Melania has more pressing problems than an ex-wife trying to steal her thunder.

#1 ~ Will her husband's prison time nullify their marriage contract?

#2 ~ Will she be thrown out in the street when her husband's assets are seized?

#3 ~ Will her hair still be attached to her scalp when her husband goes over the precipice?

#4 ~ To wait . . . or not to wait . . . until he gets parole?

#5 ~ What's the sugar daddy market for 40-ish something arm candy?

Decisions, decisions.
