Melania’s response to Stormy Daniels’ ‘salaciaous gossip’ is every bit as classy as you would expect

How far is the media willing to drag a story that was dead on arrival?

Melania Trump spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham responded on behalf of the First Lady to allegations that President Trump had an affair with porn star Stormy Daniels in 2006, writing that the Slovenian-born former model is “focused on being a mom,” NBC News reports.

The First Lady notably stayed out of the fray. Grisham told NBC News “She’s focused on being a mom and is quite enjoying spring break at Mar-a-Lago while working on future projects.”

In a tweet, Grisham, likely alluding to Stormy Daniels’ Sunday night interview on “60 Minutes,” reproved the mainstream media for its coverage of “salacious gossip” and asked journalists to keep the First Couple’s 12-year-old son, Barron, “out of” the news.

The White House also responded to the “60 Minutes” interview, in which the adult film star claimed she was threatened with physical harm if she went public with her story.

“With respect to that interview I will say the president strongly, clearly and has consistently denied these underlying claims and the only person who has been inconsistent is the one making the claims,” the Washington Examiner quoted deputy press secretary Raj Shah at Monday’s press briefing.

“He has denied the accusations that she made last night and has been consistent in doing so,” Shah added. “She has not.”

Grisham did not elaborate on what “projects” Mrs. Trump is currently undertaking.

The First Lady has supported a number of charitable causes since assuming her role, most recently holding a meeting this month with representatives from social media giants to tackle the issue of cyber-bullying.

Many of the president’s supporters have defended his wife amid the Stormy Daniels allegations, arguing the story is of little news value and that the media has given it focus merely to humiliate the president’s wife.
