Melania Trump weighed in on the NY Times opinion editorial allegedly written by an anonymous White House source that is causing a media frenzy. In the hit piece the anonymous high level administration official suggested that President Trump was unfit for office.

In a statement issued on Thursday, the First Lady lashed out at the anonymous source, calling him or her "cowardly".

She addressed the anonymous official directly, saying “you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions."

“If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves,” Mrs. Trump said.

President Trump threatened to unleash the full force of the Justice Department on the leaker, calling their actions "treason" and suggesting the leaker didn't exist.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders ripped the anonymous source in a statement on Wednesday, calling for him or her to step out of the shadows and resign.

In a tweet on Thursday, Sanders gave out the phone number to the opinion desk directly for callers to ask "who this gutless loser is."

    If it's fake news they have nothing to worry about, and no reason to be so defensive. Just saying.

  • FukkFolks2018

    “you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions.”
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    I think its YOUR ass bitch. I think YOU are the snitch.

  • Renee26

    I'm looking for the lie

  • FukkFolks2018

    Who helped your non barely English speaking ass write it is my question

  • Tiffany Miller

    Is it believable? Yes.... But not true. Why issue a dry threat like that? That will only make your opponent tread more carefully. Trust and believe they are watching Ben Carson since Omarosa's confessions yielded all this press and a book deal. They are now possibly strip searching people before they are allowed to speak with the President. Can't even bring your own supplies or electronic devices into certain offices/meetings.

  • Tammie Reed

    I love Melania's style, that's all I got!

  • Renee26

    She probably keeps a diary of mean thoughts directed at her punk azz husband... She a coward too considering she doesn't like her husband but still won't leave him

    Bish knows all about "job" security cause she bites her tongue daily to appease her husband

  • hottlanta

    Now Sandy they want us 2 believe that a woman who says Vwhite Haus instead of White House wrote all of those words in a complete sentence like that.

  • Renee26

    Lmao

  • hottlanta

    Mylanta let us discuss your parents speedy fedex immigration papers.

  • Soda

    Melania issued a statement. Right. As if she could speak those words. Probably came from her What Michelle Obama Said Before Files.

  • hottlanta

    She no he is unfit. Remember when they were in Puerto Rico n he forget she was right there besides him.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    We know Melania didn't write the op-ed because Michelle Obama has been too busy writing her time as First Lady.

  • MookieFly

    What if she is the mole? Marry some dumbfuck in a high position who surprisingly in a wild turn of events becomes the president of the US. She was laying low as a slovenian spy but now has full access to all kinds of top priority goodies ?

  • morenYAHdelsur

    Thanks for going in the way you do ???

  • WhoKnew

    I like the nick Mylanta so I'm rocking wit it.

    First of all, y'all know that bish Mylanta is an alien from Mars, right? Alright, cool, cool. Secondly, she has had a side piece for years. Agreed? Alright, cool, cool. Thirdly, the side piece wrote the OP-ED and since she can't speak English, she just used an Etch-a-sketch to tell him what to say. Oh, by the way, Mylanta. ET said to phone home.

  • Soda

    Turns out her daddy is one of those immigrants with a criminal past that trump despises, only difference is his info is sealed.

  • WhoKnew

    Umm huh. Anything is possible.

  • none yubiz

    They are creating a diversion with the fake Op-Ed so that no one notices that he denied the release of 100K (yes, thousand!) pages of Kavanaugh's background when he worked under Bush in the White House. The Dems are grilling this white man on his ambiguous answers, inconsistent statements and downright lies. Cory Booker kicked up on em and said I'm releasing this lying ass 2520's emails and idgaf if ya'll kick me out the Senate--bring charges!!!

  • Zeta Phi Beta 1920

    Stupid responses.
    Sometimes it is best to be quiet.
    Everyone is saying this man is unfit. Either roll with the punches or give up the position.

  • cherrypie

    Ya'll already know that she did NOT write this, right????

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    So in other words Trump made her write the letter to prove she isn't the author of the anonymous letter. I am going to place my wager on Melania being one of many authors of the letter. They are testing the waters for the removal of Trump.

  • MookieFly

    Mmhmm exactly like that. She could be faking that broken english. I do it all the time when bill collectors call.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Ha!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it's part of her job description, to come out at least once or twice a quarter and PRETEND she supports her husband.

  • Jethro

    She's orange-blind; totally oblivious to her husband.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Sounds like a scene out of "The Americans"

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    LMAO!!! HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (i am dying right now)

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    oblivious, she is not. That's the gag.

  • hi-liter

    If anyone believes she actually put pen to paper, fingers to iPhone or an iPad to craft this statement is a damn fool.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    totally!! He probably threatened her with sexual contact. She was like..NOPE give me a pen.

  • TRUTHbeabsolute

    LOL!!!!! Heck yeah!

  • Fire & Ice

    Sh*t y'all cold AF in here ???

  • Fire & Ice

    Melania is the mole huh ???

    I don't run with the assumption, Mrs. Trump is dumb and/or oblivious to anything. She runs with the "English is not my first language" accent, vacant look, for all the dumb Americans who are more comfortable assuming she is stupid. #sleepercell

    Do they really expect us to believe that Melania wrote that? She can barely string a sentence together, case in point, be best.

    I hope they never show face. They said what they had to say and Trumk appointed that “senior official” so live with your choice

  • Judge Mental Will

    They love poking the bear. Now these RESISTANCE are gonna comeback harder AND IM HERE FOR IT!

  • Andrea Williams

    I think it was probably her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, I think is her name. I would put my money on her because you know old illiterate behind Trump didn't dictate that. Lol, It has too many big words for him to have done it. And it is coherent.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Maybe there's a guest appearance on SNL in her future.

  • Trace da Ace

    Hello!!! I bet its her too...she has been going against the grain low key past couple of months...her and Ivanka...

  • TMW

    She didn’t write a line of this. Trump told somebody to put out the statement for Melania. She probably read for the first time on the internet. Waiting to see what her next wardrobe choice communicates.

  • Trace da Ace

    ha ha....poor Dump is trying to do everything in his power to find out who this is...hell he probably got a reward going around in the WH for whomever rats this person out will get $$$......I'm telling you...if none of what is said is true....why are you pushing so hard to know???? #HitDogWillHollar

  • TMW

    Yep, big mad!!! ?

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I think he's going to find the person though, by siccing the Secret Service on them.

    This could get real ugly before it's all over.

  • Jersey Girl

    I'm thinking maybe he wrote it or got someone to submit (knowingly).. as a distraction to vet everyone there!! This is 45 we talking about. I put nothing pass him

  • Elevated Soul

    Get these fools Melania!....

    President Trump will set a trap for the enemy. The Deep State is so desperate and so is their Fake Media.

  • Quitedeliteful

    I don't believe Melania gives two flying fuggs about this man. The script was written for her., She was told to repeat it word for word and that's what she did. Poor woman has to pretend to be on the same page with her husband. If Trump dropped dead today Melania would request a parade and green brownies for the entire nation.

  • Trace da Ace

    its like he is going so hard on this than he went on anything else....in the past week at least....he seems to be shook.....for real....

  • Quitedeliteful

    The secret service is probably hoping he gets assassinated in office...

  • Trace da Ace

    hot damn! @ green brownies...lol

  • Mark mcharm

    Well Burt Reynolds died at 82 and he was less of a mess than trump so thank god maybe he will dead before 82??

  • TMW

    That’s why I think it’s more than one person, so a single person can’t be blamed. And they are reaching trying to say that line constitutes a physical threat. What that means is until he’s out of office - whether removed, resigns or serves his term.

  • TMW

    His feelings are hurt.

  • Quitedeliteful

    LOLLOLLOLLOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • LeeSeeCee

    I do NOT believe that Melania WROTE that, umkay... Nope, you cannot convince me that she wrote ANY of that. I also agree with 45 for a change (really hurts to even type that out), I don't think that its a real person, BUT, I do believe that this has conservative hands ALL over it to get the base riled up in "righteous anger". Liberals gain NOTHING from this. NOTHING. EVERYONE is being played on this. Our politics have become some tawdry, overly dramatic BS and just one big overall distraction from what is really happening. JMHO.. This sh*t is just too fu*king stressful.

  • TMW

    Don’t know if Melania is involved, but I believe that there were many authors.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    For sure he's shook, paranoid, and really really ticked. The writer of the article pretty much called him a baby and a fool that they have to keep an eye on to protect America from him. So you know Trump is going to leave no stone unturned trying to find out who it is.

  • hottlanta

    Stop cant take it.

  • hottlanta

    She didn't write that bcas it took her 2 years 2 come up with a slogan and we got 2 easy words be best. She couldn't even say be the best. If she had said the word the she would have burst a vein or something.

    On top of the book by Bob Woodward coming out. The icing on the cake would be if the Mueller report comes out in the next couple of weeks. He will probably implode and stroke out. None of this is helping the Republicans’ chances of keeping their majorities in November, that’s for sure.

    “If a person is bold enough to accuse people of negative actions, they have a responsibility to publicly stand by their words and people have the right to be able to defend themselves,” Mrs. Trump said.

    It's some Real shidt going down @1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Trumps white house is in turmoil. And Melania Trump can give less than a dam. We all know "Be Best" had nothing to do with the "resistance"op-ed. Nor did she release that statement. The statement may have been released but she didn't write it. Stop with the lies. Melania mission in life is to continue to smile,stand by her man and wear her Christian Louboutins.

  • Alextra Ballard

    You know she ain write that statement. The broads vocabulary is limited.

    I hate people who make accusations and then hide behind anonymous. As far as I'm concerned, if you can't stand behind your words...they mean nothing at all.
