Although Donald Trump and Kanye West shared their bromance with the world last week during a bizarre press conference that left many scratching their heads, it doesn’t mean the first family is popular with the rest of the hip hop world. After the video went viral, Stephanie Grisham, Melania Trump’s director of communications took aim at the video on Twitter. She also asked her followers, “How is this acceptable?” along with using the hashtags, #disgusting and #boycottTI. expounded on her thoughts to People magazine, calling T.I.’s portrayal “disrespectful.” “Like it or not, she is the first lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics,” Grisham said in a statement. “These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country — it needs to stop.” It’s an interesting statement given Donald Trump’s rhetoric since taking office. Grisham might want to aim her comments at the man with the nuclear codes.
