A top producer from “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” kicked off a Twitter feud with White House director of communications for first lady Melania Trump when he declared he’s more afraid of “another Melania” entering the United States than the caravan of thousands of immigrants on the march from Central America.
“Ellen” executive producer Andy Lassner took to the social media platform for his most recent jab at the first lady and the Trump administration, tweeting Monday: "I'm way more afraid of another Melania getting in to this country than I am of any caravan of human beings seeking asylum."

Shortly after Fox News reached out for comment, the first lady's spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, responded to Lassner on Twitter by inviting him to an event Melania was hosting for children at the White House to discuss kindness.
The producer responded with a series of snarky comments, asking what time he should arrive and whether or not the event is dressy.
Lasser also went after the First Lady after she had surgery earlier this year. Telling her to take Baron and run as far away as possible from the White House.
Yes!!— andy lassner (@andylassner) October 23, 2018
Will she be talking about how she pushed her husband’s theory that our first black president was born in Kenya?
What about her “I don’t care, do you jacket” worn while babies were being ripped away from parents at the border?
What time should I arrive?
Is it dressy? https://t.co/WFZWH3A2S9
