Excerpts from Spectator USA’s ‘The Melania Tapes’ reveal she’s even cooler than we thought’ by Amber Athey (Oct 3, 2020) [with commentary by me].
Just a couple of hours before President Trump announced that he and his wife, first lady Melania, had tested positive for coronavirus, the world was exposed to the so-called ‘Melania Tapes’. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former friend of the first lady, released to CNN multiple recordings she took of her private conversations with Melania.
[WTF?! She pretended to be Melania’s friend, while she was secretly taping private conversations that she intended to turn into a book? I pray, most sincerely, that the good Lord grants Mrs. Trump all the graces she needs to honestly forgive this Judas BITCH for such a vile betrayal.]
Leftists who already despise the first lady raged about how she supposedly ‘hates’ Christmas and doesn’t care about migrant children. However, the tapes actually revealed a deeply sympathetic and relatable figure belied by Melania’s somewhat aloof and statuesque public persona.

‘I’m working…my ass off on the Christmas stuff, that you know, who gives a fuck about the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I need to do it, right?’ Melania complains in one recording, capturing the hearts of every suburban mom who dreads dragging the boxes of Christmas decorations out of the attic every December.
[You got that in one, says this mom who refuses to decorate unless at least one of her offspring promises to show up at Christmas-time with some precious grandkids cuz dayum I’m sick of the fuss. Drag it all out. Sort it while ::coughcoughing:: from the dust. Spend hours putting it all up, knowing how long it’s going to take to pack it all away again in January.]
In another clip, Melania shatters the condescending and conspiratorial #FreeMelania meme, which purports that the first lady is secretly a liberal who must be rescued from a loveless and abusive marriage. When she goes off on the ‘liberal media’ and its coverage of the migrant child crisis at the border, Melania makes clear that not only she is not a victim, she is perhaps just as right-wing as her husband. That automatically makes her a hero to conservative women who are routinely accused of betraying their gender and voting Republican because they are subservient to their husbands.
[Yes! I have long suspected that this strong, beautiful woman is one of the reasons that Donald is such a good man and great president. I got my first inkling of her backbone and wit when I watched one of the first episodes of The Apprentice. The winners of one of the daily contests got to go up to the Trump Tower penthouse for a private tour with then-girlfriend Melania. One of them gushed about how gorgeous it all is and said, “You’re so lucky!” Melania replied, “You don’t think he’s the lucky one?” LOL You go, girl!]
Wolkoff and CNN made a major miscalculation. They thought that exposing Melania’s intimate conversations would turn Wolkoff into a folk hero. Instead, it revealed her to be a horrible friend who was willing to abuse Melania’s trust in order to sell books. None of us would want to be held accountable for the things we think or say in our most private moments, but if the worst Melania says behind closed doors is that she gets annoyed with Christmas decorations and can’t stand the media, she sure is a hell of a lot like us.
[Plus, I was not at all bothered to learn that she drops an f-bomb or two when she’s especially pissed off. Like her, I try to behave like a lady in public. But when I’m riled, yeah, I use some language, because that’s what it’s FOR.]
