Feud Breaks Out Between Melania And Ivana Trump Over Who Is "First Lady"

Tyler Durden's picture

It was only a matter of time before an episode of "Real House Wives of the White House" played out before the entire world.

On Monday morning Donald Trump's ex-wife, Ivana Trump, appeared on Good Morning America where jokingly she said that "I’m basically first Trump wife. I’m first lady.”

Asked how often Ivana speaks with her ex-husband, Trump said about once every 14 days, boasting he has a "direct number to the White House," but she admitted she's reluctant to call him too often.

"I have the direct number to White House, but I no really want to call him there because Melania is there, and I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that," Ivana said, laughing.  "Because I'm basically first Trump wife, okay?  I'm first lady, okay?"

While Ivana was largely sanguine about Melania Trump, she was much less so about Trump's second wife, Marla Maples, who had an affair with him while he was still married to Ivana Trump. "One is nobody. And the other one is First Lady," Ivana Trump joked.

Her statements, however, did not go over well with the real first lady, and In a statement issued by her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump blasted her husband’s first wife for her statements on GMA.

"She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books,” the spokeswoman said in a statement. “There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex. Unfortunately only attention seeking and self-serving noise.”

While as Mediaite points out, this is the kind of public spat in which Melania’s husband routinely engages, for Melania, this type of squabble is rare, while this type of harsh rebuke, rarer still.

As for Ivana, one can see the motive behind the feud: she is currently promoting her new memoir "Raising Trump," which features stories about raising her children with Trump. During her book promotion tour, the former Mrs. Trump has made several headline-grabbing comments: in a previous interview, she claimed that her ex-husband offered her the ambassadorship to the Czech Republic. She also bashed his second wife, Marla Maples.

So who would argue if Melania dispatches a few agents to "take care" of the problem?

Filthy Muslim Donald Trump would prefer polygamy, and has also openly praised Sharia laws on divorce.  Look it up.

TRUMP IS A MUSLIM, traded his daughter to the tribe.  Start dealing with it, ZH snowflakes.

I think they should be back together.

Ivana and Trump are born for each other. The fake hair. The plasticity faces.

They both complement each other so well.

It’s amazing.

Ivana, Melania, Ivanka...

Just throw them all into a pit of baked beans and let them wrestle it out.  Wahoooooo!

(Of course, AIPAC will act as referees and the Donald will comply with whatever their decision may be.)

You might have a point there if Ivana doesn’t step back and get out of sight.

Trumps don’t have sense of boundaries. They love attention. They can’t help themselves.

I understand that Ivana is not a Trump by blood, but by culture.

He is a Pagan Muslim, misogynistic feminist Jew

From what I can gather, Trump is a Muslim Jew, and a Commie Fascist.

Two cannibals were having lunch. “Your wife makes a great soup,” said one to the other. “Yes!” agreed the first. “But I m going to miss her terribly.”

She looks like Ivana Humpalot from Austin Powers.

Here are Melania and Ivana:


It's her entitlement fantasy of the WH bedroom and 10 Mile-high on AF-1, that makes her horny.

Cat fight on pay per view.

Melania, Ivana and Marla in bikinis ripping off bras and clawing each other's faces. Better entertainment than the NFL for sure.

"Why ZH?"

ZH is now like RT's website, only with online ads. Still get some good financial stories, but increasingly, the main mission is no longer the ZH of old.

Must be a slow news day at ZH.  Why did I think it was "Ivanka"?

Because if Zsa Zsa err Ivana reads ZH she may go get the ESPN job that's about to open up.....

Nothing worse then an ex with an agenda.

Trump did a Pump & Dump. 

He pumped another, then dumped Ivana.

Women never get over that. They NEED to get back together, so they can dump the guy.  It's hard-working instincts at play.
