First lady Melania Trump’s spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham called rapper T.I.’s video — depicting the first lady as an exotic dancer — “disgusting and disrespectful.”
“Like it or not, she is the first lady and this is the White House,” Grisham shared in a statement to CNN Tuesday. “It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics.” (RELATED: The View Has Fiery Debate Over Melania’s #MeToo Comments)
“These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country — it needs to stop,” she added.

“How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycottT.I. @Tip,” Grisham wrote, along with a retweet of an article about the one-minute video.

The comments came after Grisham called for a boycott Saturday of the 38-year-old rapper’s music over his latest video showing him watching a lookalike of the first lady strip in the Oval Office and dance on the desk naked.
