Melania Trump is reportedly preparing to fight back against her critics on the left.
According to Page Six, the first lady “has had enough of left-leaning stars taking cheap shots at her and her son Barron,” so she is assembling a team of staffers that will help her manage attacks on her family.
She is working with a Vogue staffer and Met Ball organizer to select a chief of staff, a communications chief and a social secretary.
Since Donald Trump was inaugurated last Friday, there have been multiple criticisms against Melania and her 10-year-old son.
Comedian Chelsea Handler said she refused to interview Melania because she “can barely speak English,” and a “Saturday Night Live” writer tweeted that Barron Trump would be “this country’s first homeschool shooter.” (RELATED: Chelsea Handler Rips Melania Trump: ‘She Can Barely Speak English’)
“Shame on Chelsea Handler for attacking our first lady in such a despicable manner,” the president’s personal lawyer Michael Cohen said in a statement to Page Six. “Don’t be fooled by her accent. Melania is bright and articulate. To be clear, our first lady speaks multiple languages, I believe five.”
