The White House unloaded on TV host Stephen Colbert after his “disgraceful” comments “mocking the first lady.”
“Here we go again – an irrelevant late night talk show host mocking the First Lady, when her main focus is serving the American people,” Grisham said while speaking to reporters.
She was responding to CBS’s “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” when he made comments that Melania Trump was not a free woman during his opening segment on Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
“His comments were disgraceful, and certainly not original, but that doesn’t seem to matter when you’re hurting for ratings,” she added.
During his monologue, Colbert was talking about President Donald Trump and the First Lady’s tweets celebrating MLK day.
“Melania’s tweet was short and sweet. ‘Together we honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. #MLKDay,’” Colbert shared.

He then decided to mock Melania saying, “really relates to Dr. King’s message, especially the part about wanting to be free at last. It’s what I heard.”
“The oddest thing about that tweet was the graphic she used, which just said ‘MLK Day,’” he added. “Timely … and factual. And I’m being told we have a preview of the first lady’s tweet for tomorrow: Together we honor—Tuesday, January 21.’ Again, so truthful.”
The left hates Melania Trump because she is the wife of President Trump, and is more successful than Michelle Obama before she got to the White House. On her own Melania is a self-made millionaire and a successful businesswoman.
If anything the attacks on Melania prove the hypocrisy of the left. They claim the #Metoo movement is to empower woman yet they mock a woman who is the first lady, speaks multiple languages, and is a successful entrepreneur.
All Michelle Obama ever did was give kids lunches they didn’t want.
