Melania Trump came to her husband’s defense in her first interview since Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump was struck with accusations of sexual assault.
Having her husband’s back in the course of the interview, Melania referred to the allegations as “lies” and said the comments Donald has been accused of making in the 2005 video resulted from being “egged on” into “boy talk.”
The scandal, Melania said, was organized by the opposition. She even questioned the authenticity of the “background of these women” accusing Trump.
“They don’t have any facts,” she added.
Melania Trump: Donald Trump was ‘egged on’ into ‘boy talk’
“I heard many different stuff — boys talk,” she said, as reported by CNN. “The boys, the way they talk when they grow up and they want to sometimes show each other, ‘Oh, this and that’ and talking about the girls. But yes, I was surprised, of course.”
She said her husband was involved in “boy talk” and that he was “egged on – from the host to say dirty and bad stuff.”
While Melania said she agrees with First Lady Michelle Obama that groping and kissing without consent constitutes sexual assault, “every assault should be taken care of in a court of law.”
“To accuse, no matter who it is, a man or a woman, without evidence is damaging and unfair,” Melania said.
Meanwhile, knowledgeable sources have told the Daily Mail that Melania has “all the sophistication, poise and quiet strength to be the next Jackie [Kennedy].” The same was reflected by Melania herself when her husband was seeking presidency in 1999. Asked about the kind of role she would have played, she said, “I would be very traditional like Betty Ford or Jackie Kennedy.”
Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis authority Pamela Keogh and first lady expert Carl Sferrazza Anthony said they have noticed many similarities between Jackie Kennedy and Melania.
“Melania Trump is beautiful, discreet, smart and keeps her own counsel,” Keogh said. “Like Jackie, she’s very well educated. She’s glamorous and she’s an authentic beauty, not a made-up, plastic surgery, fake person. Jackie, too, was an authentic beauty.”
There have been several interesting comments and statements made by Melania throughout the years. When asked if she and Trump discuss politics, she said in an interview with Us Weekly. “I’m very political. I’m not political in public, I’m political at home.”
Harper’s Bazaar asked about parenting her 10-year-old son. “I don’t have a nanny. I have a chef, and I have my assistant, and that’s it. I do it myself,” she had said. Speaking about her husband’s diaper changing duty, she said, as reported by Us Weekly, “No, he would not change diapers and I was completely fine with that. That was very enjoyable to do for me.”
She also spoke with GQ about the rumors that she received Botox treatment. “I didn’t make any changes,” she said. “I’m against Botox, I’m against injections; I think it’s damaging your face, damaging your nerves. It’s all me. I will age gracefully, as my mom does.”
What about her husband landing as the next president? “Isn’t he the best? He will be the best president ever,” Melania said. “We love you.”
