The co-hosts of the ABC talk show “The View” launched vile attacks on Melania Trump during Wednesday’s show one day after the former First Lady announced that she would be auctioning off some of her most famous White House items.
The Hill reported that Melania announced through her office that she will be auctioning off various items, including the famous white hat she wore when the French first family the Macrons visited the White House. She will also be selling a watercolor painting of her eyes as well as an NFT of herself. Her office said that a portion of the proceeds will go to providing “individuals who have been in the foster care community with access to computer science and technology education.”
The leftwing cohosts of “The View” did not hesitate to hit Melania below the belt for this auction, however, with Joy Behar saying that since she feels that the Trumps are “grifters,” this charitable donation will probably amount to “75 cents on the $250,000.”

“I’m wondering if someone has explained to Melania that NFT does not stand for ‘No Freaking Trump,’” guest host Ana Navarro said. “I think it’s tacky, but I think it’s very much on-brand for the Trumps who are, as you say, grifters who are always trying to bank on their name.”
Cohost Sunny Hostin agreed by calling it “basement level tacky.”
“It sounds a little bit like an exit plan, if I’m being honest. We know that Donald Trump is in a lot of trouble as the former, disgraced twice-impeached president, and he’s being investigated through the wazoo, as his companies are,” Hostin continued. “So he doesn’t have a lot of money, and Melania probably needs money because she hasn’t really done much in terms of a career. And so I think it sounds a little bit desperate and like an exit plan. She needs money.”
Guest host Yvette Nicole Brown, who was filling in for Whoopi Goldberg after she tested positive, joked that she wishes she had Melania’s famous “I don’t care, do you?” jacket because she does not care about the Trumps.
“I think this is the dumbest thing she could’ve done, and it’s just on brand,” Brown said. “It’s ‘Grifts R Us’ with the backwards R.”

This just confirms that the media’s hateful obsession with former President Donald Trump and his family is alive and well. If they really despise them so much, they could just make them go away by ignoring them, but the left just can’t help themselves when it comes to spewing their anti-Trump hate.
