Melania Trump: ‘Unbelievable’ Chris Matthews Commented on Me
MSNBC host Chris Matthews drew the ire of Melania Trump on Tuesday after he commented about her physical appearance.
“Unbelievable,” she said in an interview with Du Jour published on Tuesday. “That’s what I’m saying — I’m not only a beauty, I’m smart. I have brains. I’m intelligent. I would just say, Men will be men.”
The Hill reports:
Matthews was caught analyzing Trump’s appearance earlier this month, after her husband, Donald Trump, won Indiana’s GOP presidential primary and became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.
“Did you see her walk? Runway walk. My god is that good,” Matthews could be heard saying on May 4 in remarks caught by a hot mic. “I could watch that runway show.”
Melania Trump said that such incidents are part of the territory when married to a celebrity billionaire such as Donald Trump.
“When you walk in a room, everybody knows the person,” she said of her spouse. “Sometimes people see you with that man, and maybe they know more about the man, and they judge you or see you differently. You need to know [who] you are and you need to be very secure. You need to stand up for yourself. You need to have your own yes and no.”
Melania Trump also said Donald Trump shares no similarity with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler after proposing a temporary ban on Muslims entering the U.S.
“We know the truth,” she said of the GOP’s presumptive presidential nominee. “He’s not Hitler. He wants to help America. He wants to unite people. They think he doesn’t, but he does.
“Even with the Muslims, it’s only temporary,” Melania Trump added. “Maybe he need to say it in a softer way. He doesn’t go after religions.
“He feels like we need to know who’s coming into this country. If not, we don’t have a country. That’s how he feels. We see how he is, and he wants to unite the country and bring people together and bring jobs back.”
