Four different folks had been killed.“Melania knows how to ‘Be Best’ at standing up and reading from a teleprompter and not from the heart,” Ms Wolkoff wrote, citing the primary woman’s on-line bullying marketing campaign.Hours after the riot Stephanie Grisham, Mrs Trump’s chief of workers, introduced she can be leaving her place within the administration in protest of the Capitol riots.But Ms Wolkoff stated the resignation may not be fairly what it appeared.“It came as no surprise to learn, with less than two weeks to go, Grisham jumped ship during Trump’s self-imposed reprehensible implosion. Grisham was probably fired and used this opportunity to pretend she had a moral line in the sand,” the previous aide wrote.The former aide referred to as the primary woman “an extension of her husband, just as hypocritical, speaking out of both sides of her mouth, when it suits her best”.Ms Wolkoff warned off the idea that the primary woman is “powerless” inside her relationship with the sitting president.“Don’t be fooled; she is an abuser too, of the worst kind. The kind that speaks kindly to children. The sickness is under the skin,” she stated.She added: “Melania knows and supports Donald and his viewpoints. If you hit him, he’ll hit you back harder. He’s the brass knuckles, aggressive guy, and she elects to grin and bear it. She turns a blind eye. The truth is she’s actually encouraging him to go for it. Be aggressive. She’s his biggest cheerleader.”The Independent has contacted the White House for remark.Read MoreArnold Schwarzenegger calls Trump the worst president in historical pastTrump legacy on race shadowed by divisive rhetoric, actionsAmazon bans Parler after pro-Trump app eliminated by Apple and Google
