(Republican Party News) – Since we’re still being forced to endure the Jan. 6 narrative, former First Lady Melania Trump has spoken out after accusations that she turned a blind eye to the situation that unfolded at the Capitol that day.
According to Fox News, Melania Trump’s former chief of staff, Stephanie Grisham, has accused Melania of refusing to sign off on a statement condemning the Capitol “incursion.”
During an interview on Thursday, Melania said, “I always condemn violence” and that “had I been fully informed of all the details, naturally, I would have immediately denounced the violence that occurred at the Capitol Building.”
She also discussed how her job on the day of Jan. 6, 2021, was to document all changes made to the White House during President Trump’s tenure.
“On January 6, 2021, I was fulfilling one of my duties as First Lady of the United States of America, and accordingly, I was unaware of what was simultaneously transpiring in the U.S. Capitol Building,” she said.
“As with all First Ladies who preceded me, it was my obligation to record the contents of the White House’s historic rooms, including taking archival photographs of all the renovations.
“Several months in advance, I organized a qualified team of photographers, archivists, and designers to work with me in the White House to ensure perfect execution. … As required, we scheduled January 6, 2021, to complete the work on behalf of our Nation.”
Melania also noted that her former chief of staff was not where she should have been that day.
“Ms. Grisham was not in the White House on January 6, and her behavior in her role as Chief of Staff ultimately amounts to dereliction of duty,” she said, adding that “traditionally, the First Lady’s Chief of Staff provides detailed briefings surrounding our Nation’s important issues.”
“In fact, Ms. Grisham failed to provide insight and information into the events surrounding January 6 as she had abandoned her post in Washington, D.C.,” she said. “Shamefully, this behavior has only partially become public knowledge; yet was consistent for Ms. Grisham.”
Mrs. Trump said she had “always been very supportive” of Grisham. “I stood behind Ms. Grisham after her failed stint as White House Press Secretary and welcomed her back to the East Wing,” she said.
Grisham attempted to play the role of press secretary between the time Sarah Huckabee Sanders served in that position to the time Kayleigh McEnany took over. Since the Trumps have left the White House, Grisham has become a vocal critic.
Melania called out Grisham’s turncoat behavior, saying, “It is evident that Grisham’s recent betrayals are a last-ditch attempt to resuscitate her ruined career and reputation.”
“And while Ms. Grisham’s behavior is disappointing, it is not surprising or an isolated incident. … This is not the first time a former staffer has tried to maintain relevancy and profit by using my name to create a false narrative.”
Grisham claimed that she had texted Melania about the Capitol situation and asked, “Do you want to tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness & violence?”
Grisham further contends that Melania responded back with a simple “No.”

The former chief of staff has said that it was a significant moment for her during an interview with CNN last month.
Grisham has said that was a significant moment.
“Knowing her as well as I did at that point, it was so unlike her to not have condemned it. That was the moment it all kind of broke me” Grisham explained.
“I felt compelled to show that text because it was a lot of context, I thought, and again, knowing Melania like I did, I was so disappointed and discouraged and sickened that she wouldn’t stand up and just say simply, ‘There should be no violence.’”
Grisham is clearly just an attention-seeking swamp failure who’s looking for her 15 minutes anywhere she can get it. She’s definitely not the only former Trump staffer to go down this road.
Americans aren’t being fooled.
