This Thursday, a spokesperson for Melania Trump distanced the First Lady from a recent statement from lawyer and adviser to the President Rudy Giuliani, who claimed that Melania believes Trump’s denials about his alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels.
“I don’t believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani,” Stephanie Grisham, the first lady’s communications director, said in a statement to The Hill.
The statement from the First Lady’s camp was also distributed to other journalists.
Yikes. I asked @FLOTUS spokeswoman @StephGrisham45 about Giuliani saying that she believes her husband re Stormy Daniels. Response: “I don't believe Mrs. Trump has ever discussed her thoughts on anything with Mr. Giuliani.”

The statement, which seems to go out of its way to undermine Giuliani’s assertion, comes one day after Giuliani said during a trip to Israel that Melania believes her husband when in comes to Daniel’s claim that the two had an affair over a decade ago.
“She believes her husband and she doesn’t think it’s true,” Giuliani said, adding that although he respects “beautiful women and women with value,” he doesn’t extend that respect to “a woman who sells her body for sexual exploitation.”
“Tell me what damage she suffered,” Giuliani continued. “Someone who sells his or her body for money has no good name.”
The First Lady has not yet publicly commented on the alleged affair between Trump and Daniels. At the time of the alleged affair, Melania had just given birth to the pair’s son Barron.
Upon hearing Giuliani’s comments, Daniel’s lawer Michael Avenatti called him a “misogynist.”
“Mr. Giuliani is a misogynist,” Avenatti tweeted. “His most recent comments regarding my client, who passed a lie detector test and who the American people believe, are disgusting and a disgrace. His client Mr. Trump didn’t seem to have any ‘moral’ issues with her and others back in 2006 and beyond.”
