Ivana Trump, the president's first wife, took a totally unprompted shot at Melania during an interview with ABC News. What did she do to deserve that insult?
Asked how often Ivana speaks with her ex-husband, she...admitted she's reluctant to call him too often. "I don't really want to call him there because Melania is there, and I don't want to cause any kind of jealousy or something like that," Ivana said, laughing. "Because I'm basically first Trump wife, okay? I'm first lady, okay?"
But then Melania's spokesperson fired back immediately, accusing Ivana of making "self-serving noise" in an attempt to hustle her book. Many saw the sarcastic response as bad optics, beneath the First Lady.

Her critics say Melania has done nothing to dignify her office. She's feuding with the president's first wife, dressing like a runway model to tour disaster areas and going through the motions of a cyber-bullying campaign while her husband threatens nuclear war on Twitter. Don't pity her: pity the nation.
