In some excerpts advanced Per Politico, the author compares the former first lady to “the doomed French queen” Marie Antoinette. According to the outlet, Grisham explains in his book that he sent Melania Trump a text message at 1:25 p.m. on January 6, shortly after the protesters stormed the Capitolo, in which he asked her if she wanted to. “tweet that peaceful protests are the right of every American, but that there is no room for anarchy and violence”; to which Trump, who at the time was preparing for a photoshoot of a carpet he had chosen for the White House, gave a negative answer.
Grisham, who joined the Trump campaign in 2015 and who, despite his misgivings, remained in the White House until almost the end of the presidential term, assures that the previous president’s indifference to these disturbances “broke it”. that she had spent years defending the former first lady from accusations that portrayed her as a “Marie Antoinette-type dilettante.” However, Grisham herself says that she sees Melania as “the doomed French queen”, whose features she condenses into three adjectives: “Contemptuous Defeated Detached“.
