“She feels I’m being very badly mistreated. She said, ‘You go ahead and do whatever you want to do, because I’m with you 100%.’”
"The people love Melania!"

CNN commentator and View co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin recently blasted Donald Trump on Tuesday night after he took a shot at her on Fox News the day before.
Appearing on AC360, the former Trump White House director of strategic communications was asked by host Anderson Cooper about the remark.
“Your name came up in Bret Baier’s interview with the former president on Fox on Monday,” he said before airing the clip.
“Something happens,” Trump said. “When people leave, they can like me very much. I have this woman named Alyssa Farah. She said the greatest things long after she left. ‘He’s the greatest president we’ve ever had. He’s unbelievable, unbelievable.’ Then The View offered her a contract, but obviously only if she changed her views and all of a sudden she can say negative things. Money gets offered to people and some people change.”
Cooper reacted by noting that Trump’s breathing sounded odd when he made the comments.
“First of all, his breathing seems weird to me,” he told Griffin. “But I wanted you to be able to respond.”
“Just as a simple fact pattern. I was on Fox News on Jan. 7 – the day after Jan. 6 – 2021, where I denounced him and said he was unfit for office and should resign. And I’ve done that every day since. Didn’t join The View until nearly two years later. But Donald Trump doesn’t seem to understand that those of us who served in his administration, we swore an oath to the Constitution. We did not swear an oath of loyalty to Donald Trump. I would never swear one to any politician and I think he needs to realize we don’t owe him anything.”
