Sarah Sanders has a message for ‘The View’ Mean Girls who suggested Melania was Trump’s mistress

A host of people, including White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, ripped into ABC’s ostensibly pro-women talk show “The View” this week after one of the show’s guest hosts disrespected first lady Melania Trump yet again.

This week’s low-blow attack involved guest host Yvette Nicole Brown suggesting that the first lady may have once been one of President Donald Trump’s mistresses.

She issued the widely panned remark during a discussion about a recent interview in which Melania had addressed reports about her husband’s “alleged infidelities” of the not-recent past by noting that she had more important things to worry about at the moment.

“I am a mother and first lady, and I have much more important things to think about and to do,” the first lady had said during the interview.

According to Brown, this could only mean one thing: “Is it possible that she’s not concerned with his mistresses because she was one of them?” she asked Friday.

Listen to Melania’s interview and Brown’s subsequent statement in the clip below:

This disrespectful question triggered a ripple of criticism from numerous people, including Sanders, Melania’s spokeswoman and American Conservative Union chairman Matt Schlapp.

In a tweet posted right after Friday’s edition of “The View” ended, Melania’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham urged Brown to check her facts and reminded her that the first lady “deserves your respect & certainly not your lies.”

Sanders chimed in a few hours later with her own dig at “The View” for its continued “war on women“:

Schlapp threw in his two cents during an appearance later that evening on Fox News’ “Hannity,” saying, “It’s like a gathering of the Mean Girls, and most women see this for what it is.”


But instead of rethinking her choice of words or perhaps even issuing an apology, Brown has since doubled down on Twitter, where she’s practically declared war on anyone with the apparent temerity to challenge her all-knowing, all-seeing self.


It remains unclear why Brown felt such an intense need to disrespect the first lady on Friday. It should be noted though that one of the guests featured on “The View” that day did briefly call her out.

“Before we go, I do want to say something. There was a comment made at this table today about Mrs. Trump. I just want to say whether you like her or you don’t like her, she deserves our respect because she is our First Lady,” ABC News journalist Tom Llamas, who was the individual who had interviewed Melania in the first place, said to Brown later in the show.

“I don’t respect her,” Brown then replied.

And this may be in turn why so few respect her in turn?
