Melania’s Former BFF Reveals She’s Been Cooperating With Prosecutors For ‘Over 3 Years’

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff isn’t exactly a household name, but her best friend for several years most certainly is: Former First Lady Melania Trump.

Wolkoff was a devoted friend and confidant to Melania, but when investigators began looking at questionable spending by the Presidential Inauguration Committee (PIC) shortly after Donald Trump became president, the Trump tried to blame Wolkoff.

The PIC scandal is heating up again, according to The Daily Beast:

Ahead of the 2017 presidential inauguration, the Trump Organization reserved a block of rooms at the Loews Madison Hotel. When at least 13 people didn’t show up, the Trump Organization refused to pay the bill, something it has done many times in the past. The company then dodged a credit collection agency and eventually squirmed out of it by pushing the $49,358 bill off to the nonprofit presidential inaugural committee, the PIC.

That dodged payment is now the crux of the attorney general for the District of Columbia’s latest effort to put the Trump Organization back in its crosshairs in an ongoing investigation into how the Trump kids used the Presidential Inauguration Committee to throw lavish parties of their own.

Wolkoff says the Trumps should have known better:

“It was their friends. It should never have been sent to the PIC. That’s misuse of funding. The Trump Organization being involved in any way and getting the PIC to pay any sort of balance anywhere on their behalf? It just doesn’t seem legitimate.”

And it now seems that Wolkoff is on the verge of having the last laugh, as she noted Monday on Twitter, reminding Melania and the Trump family that she has the goods on them.

That’s not all Wolkoff had to say, either.

No matter where they look — Georgia, New York, Washington, D.C. — the ex-president and his family can see storm clouds on the horizon. Their lying, grifting, and other criminal behavior is on the verge of sending them to prison for a long time.

Melania Trump WTF?!

Strapped For Cash? Melania Is Suddenly Selling All Sorts Of Things

Something very strange is going on with former First Lady Melania Trump, and it’s setting off speculation that she’s trying to cash in on what little celebrity cache she still has left before her name fades into complete irrelevance.

A couple of weeks ago, Melania announced she was offering up a non-fungible token (NFT) piece of artwork featuring her eyes, as USA Today reported:

Former first lady Melania Trump announced on Thursday that she will begin selling NFTs, or nonfungible tokens, becoming the latest personality to embrace the hot digital collectible trend. 

“I am proud to announce my new NFT endeavor, which embodies my passion for the arts, and will support my ongoing commitment to children through my Be Best initiative,” she said in a Thursday statement shared on social media.  

Trump  confirmed in the statement that she is starting a platform that will “release NFTs in regular intervals.” 

An NFT is a piece of data verifying that you have ownership of a digital item, such as a piece of artwork. The items can also include a video clip, a tweet and more.  

And now we learn that the ex-president’s wife is auctioning off a white hat she wore when French President Emmanuel Macron visited the United States in 2018:

In a statement from her office, Trump said that, in addition to the hat, the auction lot will include a watercolor by Marc-Antoine Coulon — a French artist who drew her eyes for her NFT last month — as well as what the statement defines as “an exclusive digital artwork NFT with motion.” The NFT, the second Trump has sold in less than a month, features the drawing of the hat with some animation.

The centerpiece of the auction, the custom white hat, which Trump has signed, was created for Trump by her personal stylist, Hervé Pierre, to match the $2,105 white crepe Michael Kors Collection suit Trump wore for the daytime ceremonies at the White House attended by Emmanuel Macron and Brigitte Macron.

Why the sudden rush to sell off memorabilia by Melania? Twitter users had some thoughts on the matter:

The most important question of all: How much is Melania hoping to raise with these auctions before she files for divorce?

WATCH: Melania Looks Absolutely Miserable As She Stands Next To Donnie At The World Series

On Saturday evening, failed, one-term former President Donald Trump made an appearance at Game Four of the 2021 World Series in Atlanta, but his wife, Melania, looked like she’d have just as soon been anywhere else.

At one point during the game, Donald and Melania joined the crowd in doing the controversial “tomahawk chop” cheer to rally the Atlanta Braves, who went on to win the game:

But another video of the Trumps shows a much different scene, as Melania appears to be smiling and then looks away as if she’s disgusted and wants to get the hell away from the con man standing next to her:

Does she look happy to you? Twitter had some thoughts:

Poll: Melania Is One Of The Least Admired First Ladies In US History

Much like her husband, former first lady Melania Trump is a divisive figure, claiming to care about the issue of online bullying yet never calling out the failed former president for his countless attacks on others via social media.

Just how unpopular is Melania? According to a new poll from Zogby Analytics, she’s near the bottom when it comes to favorite first ladies in modern history, The Daily Mail reports:

Jacqueline Kennedy tops a new poll of America’s favorite first ladies while current occupant Jill Biden comes in near the middle and Melania Trump was second from the bottom. 

Zogby Analytics polled a sampling of Americans for their thoughts on the past 12 women who have served as first lady. 

The results were based on how many of the 5,437 likely voters said each of the First Ladies was great. 

Be sure and note that Michelle Obama is second only to the late Jackie Kennedy in the poll, which is certain to enrage Donald Trump and his supporters, who have long tried to denigrate Mrs. Obama and her husband.

The fact that current First Lady Jill Biden is ranked so high though her husband has been in the White House for less than a year is also notable.

It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Melania is near the bottom of the poll. Keep in mind a few of the more controversial things she did and said while her husband was in office:

  • During a visit to see detained children at the US border, she wore a Zara jacket with “I don’t really care, do u?” emblazoned across the back. It left a bad taste in the mouths of many after her husband appeared seemingly apathetic to having separated children from their parents.
  • Melania hasn’t given many speeches, but when she did, they never went without controversy – whether she was accused of plagiarising Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech or labelled a hypocrite for celebrating diversity at the 2020 Republican National Convention (RNC) years after questioning Barack Obama’s nationality.

Though we can’t yet know if Melania’s ranking among former first ladies will improve, when you consider that her husband continues to say and do incredibly disgusting things, it seems unlikely that Mrs. #BeBest will ever be anything more than a footnote in American history that most of us would rather forget.

Looks Like Ivanka Is Behind The Tell-All Book That Has Enraged Melania

HarperCollins Publishers recently released the book I’ll Take Your Questions Now: What I Saw in the Trump White House, by Stephanie Grisham — who served as White House press secretary and chief-of-staff to Melania Trump — and some of the excerpts have caused incredible controversy:

At 1:25 p.m. on Jan. 6, soon after rioters had broken through barricades outside of the Capitol, MELANIA TRUMP received a text message from her then-chief of staff, STEPHANIE GRISHAM.

“Do you want to tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but there is no place for lawlessness and violence?” Grisham asked the first lady.

A minute later, Melania replied with a one-word answer: “No.” At that moment, she was at the White House preparing for a photo shoot of a rug she had selected

In response, Melania’s office fired off a statement which read in part:

“The intent behind this book is obvious. It is an attempt (by Grisham) to redeem herself after a poor performance as press secretary, failed personal relationships, and unprofessional behavior in the White House.”

But could Grisham’s book have been written at the urging of Ivanka Trump?

That’s the word from Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who was once Melania’s BFF and knows what the Trumps are like.

Wolkoff told CNN’s Anderson Cooper:

“(Grisham) wasn’t there to have Melania’s back. Stephanie was there as an Ivanka loyalist … Stephanie Grisham started out in the West Wing.”

Really? Yes, and that led Wolkoff to note:

“I have a hunch … this might be Ivanka’s next step for her bid for the White House. Having Stephanie Grisham do a little dirty work on Melania.

“I don’t put anything past them, really.”

Considering who spawned the Trump children, it would be crazy to put anything past any of them. They all appear to share their father’s lack of a moral compass and a deep-seated need to trample on others on their way to the top.

Grisham, Wolkoff continued, is just doing what the Trump are known for doing to everyone: Tossing them under the bus:

“So many people have been prosecuted by them because they have told the truth. If you are going to support the Trumps, that means you are going to say exactly what they want you to say, or else you’re no longer part of their team.

“I think too many people are listening to the words they say, but not the actions they’re taking. And their loyalty only runs one way, and it only runs their way.”

Ivanka likely does have dreams of being a senator or even president one day. But she never will be. She’s too fake, too plastic, and too much like her father to appeal to a majority of voters.

There have been lots of rumors over the years that Ivanka and Melania are not fond of each other. After all, the Donald lusts after Ivanka and cheats on Melania with porn stars and Playboy models while she’s giving birth to his son. That tends to create a bit of tension inside of a family.

Could Ivanka have been the one the encouraged Grisham to trash Melania in print? Of course she could. There is absolutely nothing that’s beneath or beyond a Trump. They’re trash masquerading as royalty.
