Actress Issa Rae, who writes and stars in the hit HBO comedy, "Insecure," told Glamour magazine this week that she was thrilled to find out Michelle Obama watched (and liked) her show, but, Rae added, she'd be less than thrilled to find out the current First Lady, Melania Trump, was a fan.
"You really watch it?’ She was like, ‘Yes. Sasha and Malia put me on to it,’" Rae recalled about her conversation with the former First Lady. "It was like talking to my auntie. It bums me out that I will never have that feeling again of the First Family f**king with us so hard and getting us."
"If Melania [Trump] said that to me, I would be like, ‘Well, I guess it’s canceled. We’re not making this show. It’s not ours anymore," Rae added.
It turns out, not only does Melania watch the show, she also saw Rae's interview, and her office fired back, calling Rae's bluff.
Melania catches a lot of heat because of President Trump, but she may be the wittiest of all the former first ladies. It is nice that the 'Insecure' actress has a sense of humor as well.
