A full five days after riots by pro-Trump supporters at the Capitol left six people dead, First Lady Melania Trump finally addressed the horrific violence which has led to calls for her husband to resign or be removed from office immediately. But, much like the current president, Mrs. Trump managed to make the comments all about herself.

In an official statement posted on the White House website, the first lady wrote:

“I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week. I find it shameful that surrounding these tragic events there has been salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me – from people who are looking to be relevant and have an agenda. This time is solely about healing our country and its citizens. It should not be used for personal gain.”

It should not be used for personal gain? Isn’t that what Melania’s husband does with everything? He tries to incite others so he can increase his own power and use the results for political advantage.

The first lady also had this to say:

“As an American, I am proud of our freedom to express our viewpoints without persecution. It is one of the paramount ideals which America is fundamentally built on. Many have made the ultimate sacrifice to protect that right. With that in mind, I would like to call on the citizens of this country to take a moment, pause, and look at things from all perspectives.

“I implore people to stop the violence, never make assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin or use differing political ideologies as a basis for aggression and viciousness. We must listen to one another, focus on what unites us, and rise above what divides us.”

Her husband has been making assumptions based on the color of a person’s skin or political beliefs since he announced he was running for president and called Mexican immigrants “rapists.” He has also referred to people from “shithole” countries that aren’t inhabited by white people. The hypocrisy and lack of self-awareness in Melania’s pathetic attempt to spin the rioting is disgusting, and plenty of people on social media let her know about it:
