On Thursday, CNN aired several tapes of Melania Trump surreptitiously recorded by her former friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff. During the tapes, Melania repeatedly trashed her critics and critics of her husband in a profane tirade.
She took particular offense at the criticism she has faced for indifference to family separation at the border — something she was inextricably tied to in the media after visiting a border facility wearing a jacket that read "I really don't care, do u."
"They say I'm complicit. I'm the same like him, I support him. I don't say enough. I don't do enough," she said in one tape. "Where I am. I put — I'm working like a — my ass off at — Christmas stuff that you know, who gives a f**k about Christmas stuff and decoration? But I need to do it, right? Okay, and then I do it. And I say that I'm working on Christmas planning for the Christmas. And they said, 'Oh, what about the children that they were separated?' Give me a f**king break. Where they were saying anything when Obama did that?"
She then complained that she tried to reunite a child, but "they would not do the story because they, they — they are against us because they're liberal media."
