The ladies on The View went after Melania Trump after the former first lady gave an interview with Fox News where she called the media biased. Melania also called out Biden’s terrible leadership.
Joy Behar said: “What did she do? She turned that beautiful Rose Garden into a cemetery. That’s one thing she did. What did she do exactly? Honestly, I don’t care what she does. I really don’t care. Do you?”
Guest co-host Stephanie Grisham, who worked for Melania in the White House, said: “You know what, she was first and foremost a mother, and she was a good mother and prioritized her son first. I will say that, and her initiatives were important to her.”
“What are the initiatives?” Behar snapped.
“Online safety, opioids, and um, just helping children with emotional intelligence, et cetera,” Grisham said.
She added that Melania should have been on the magazine cover causing Behar to say, “We’ve seen a lot of photographs online, though.”
“Again, I know it’s easy to take potshots at her, and trust me, I would like to as well, but I think for this topic, there was bias there.
“But I will also say when Vogue came to us and asked if she would do a shoot, she would only do a shoot if she could be on the cover.”
In the interview with Fox News Melania said:

“I enjoyed living in the White House. I enjoyed taking care of the White House.
“It was my home for a while.”
“And maybe it will be your home again?” Fox News host Pete Hegseth asked.
“Never say never,” Trump said.
Melania also called out our failed leadership. “So, being out of D.C. and having that time, what do you make of the state of the country right now?” Pete asked.
Melania said: “I think it’s sad to see what’s going on, if you really look deeply into it. I think a lot of people are struggling and suffering and what is going on around the world as well. So it’s very sad to see and I hope it changes fast.
Hegseth asked about the latest Biden blunder, the shortage of baby formula.
“It’s been in the news, as someone who loves children and has dedicated so much to their betterment, how do you feel when you see a shortage of baby formula and families just struggling to get basic items like that?”
Melania said: “It’s heartbreaking to see that they are struggling and the food is not available for children in the 21st century in the United States of America.”
“Why is it happening?” Hegseth asked.
“Leadership,” she responded.
“Leadership, or lack thereof?” Hegseth asked.
Melania said: “Yeah.”
Pete asked later, “With your business background, and your fashion background, and your beauty, never on the cover of Vogue?”
Melania said: “They’re biased and they have likes and dislikes and it’s so obvious. And I think American people and everyone sees it. It was their decision and I have much more important things to do and I did in the White House than being on the cover of Vogue.”
