FLOTUS Plays Victim While Finally Breaking Silence On Pro-Trump Insurrection

Melania Trump: ‘Salacious gossip, unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations’ followed riots Melania Trump finally breaks silence on US Capitol violence, says this to Americans

First lady Melania Trump said Monday she is "disappointed and disheartened" by the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol, and complained of "unwarranted personal attacks, and false misleading accusations on me" related to the attack.

She also scorned unspecified "false misleading accusations" about her from people she said are "looking to be relevant".

In the statement, shared by many news outlets, the first lady cast herself as a victim. While she did make mention of the multiple lives lost in the melee on January 6, Melania Trump curiously mourned the pro-Trump rioters who were killed after criminally trespassing on the Capitol before she did the same for the Capitol police officers who died, Brian Sicknick and Howard Liebengood, after trying to fight off the Trump-motivated mob.

The First Lady's self-defense comes after former Trump aide and friend Stephanie Winston Wolkoff published a bitter j'accuse in The Daily Beastlast week casting Melania Trump as a passive aider-and-abettor with "blood on her hands". "It should not be used for personal gain", Trump wrote. Videos and photos show those at the Capitol clashing with police, property destroyed and items taken from the Capitol.

Calling for national healing, the president's wife urged Americans to "take a moment, pause, and look at things from all perspectives".

"I am disappointed and disheartened with what happened last week", she wrote in a White House blog post released before sunrise.

"We no longer have the freedom to express our viewpoints without persecution in America so I don't know what you're talking about", another argued. We must listen to one another, focus on what unites us, and rise above what divides us.

The first lady praised the "passion and enthusiasm" in the November presidential election, which her husband lost to Democrat Joe Biden.

"Each of you are the backbone of this country". People have lied on her, and this is the injustice against which we must rally on "Our Path Forward".

Notably, Melania only mentioned the Capitol officers who died due to the attack after naming the aforementioned participants in the invasion. She concluded by saying "it is these defining moments that we will look back and tell our grandchildren that through empathy, strength, and determination, we were able to restore the promise of our future".

That bit and other elements of the statement have been compared to previous speeches and statements from the First Lady.

She also thanked her and her husband's supporters.
