The new tell-all about Melania Trump, written by a former close friend and adviser, explains the tension between the first lady and her ‘relentless’ and ‘driven’ stepdaughter.

One of the top memes of the final night of the Republican National Convention showed Melania Trump’s radiant smile collapsing into a look of distaste — even alarm — after Ivanka Trump greeted her on stage.

The latest tell-all about Melania Trump, written by her former close friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, offers a possible backstory for the seemingly withering look the first lady gave to her stepdaughter, whom she calls ‘princess.’

In “Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady,” Winston Wolkoff wrote that Melania once described Ivanka Trump and other family members working in the White House and controlling the Republican Party as a bunch of “snakes,” according to ABC News.

In an interview with ABC’s “Good Morning American, Winston Wolkoff similarly described Ivanka Trump and the Trump family as a callous clan tainted by “deceit” and “deception.”

“It was amateur hour then, and it’s amateur hour now, and I think it’s really frightening for our country,” Winston Wolkoff said in the interview, the day before the release of her book.


“Everyone does need to know what … this presidency is doing and what this propaganda machine behind this man at the White House is doing,” Winston Wolkoff said.....................................

1. What did Ivanka say to Melania onstage that night?

We don't know what happened to change Melania's expression so suddenly, do we?

3. Ironically when most of us merely want them to go away and never be heard from again...

There is enough material for an infinite number of movies/miniseries/books for decades to come. Let's just hope the majority is on courttv or the like.

It is a real page turner. First of all, Wolkoff is an experienced event planner with a long resume of organizing highly visible events. She was more than qualified to plan an inauguration. What she wasn’t qualified to do was deal with a rogues gallery of seedy and unscrupulous people.

Nor was she prepared to deal with a backstabbing and selfish friend named Melania who cares about only herself and her needs.

Melania may at one time been a nice person, but she has been corrupted by the family she married into. She is 100% Trump. She comes off badly in this book, as a selfish woman who never gives and only takes.

Wolkoff clearly had loved Melania and cherished that friendship. But Wolkoff ended up like everyone else in Trump world, she was only useful for as long as she was.

9. Saw her on Rachels show. Sounds like besides sounding the alarm she is trying to clear her name.

She became a easy scapegoat for the tRump machine.. This will be interesting to see where it goes. Will Faux noise condemn her? Will the right wing spam machine go after her? Phone calls? threats? or have they already started. Where's the popcorn.
