The least surprising thing about the Trump presidency is that his current wife Melania Trump (aka the First Lady) and his ex-wife Ivana Trump have both come down with cat-scratch fever and are battling it out in the press and on TV.
Ivana is selling a book about raising her and Donald’s children, and her marketing ploy of dragging the First Lady worked. Because the First Lady responded. So Ivana went on Wendy Williams to respond to Melania’s response. E! reports that Ivana took a moment to clarify what she said on GMA about being the real “First Lady.” She also solidified her future appointment as the US Sass General by suggesting Melania “get over it.”
“I tell you, I’m technically ‘First Lady Trump,'” Ivana, who is promoting her new book Raising Trump, told Wendy Williams. “I was first wife. I don’t know what is Melania’s problem. She just have to get over it. She is First Lady of America but I’m First Lady Trump, excuse me, and have three grownup kids.”
Speaking of not wanting the First Lady gig: When asked about Melania’s rep’s clapback, Ivana said, “I have no idea why she did it, ’cause I never said I’m ‘First Lady of America.’ Better her than me, frankly, you know.”
