Melania Trump's Spokeswoman Fires Back at Critics of Her 'Be Best' Initiative

Playing Melania Trump Fires Back at Critics of Her ‘Be Best’ Campaign

The first lady is firing back at criticism of her initiative to help kids.

The "Be Best" campaign received a bit of mockery for a pamphlet which is nearly identical to one published by the Federal Trade Commission back in 2014.

A spokeswoman for the first lady hit back Wednesday, saying in a statement: "Some media have chosen to take a day meant to promote kindness and positive efforts on behalf of children, to instead lob baseless accusations towards the first lady."

She claims the Federal Trade Commission asked Mrs. Trump to add her name to the pamphlet.

There is growing backlash to what some see as unfair press coverage of Melania Trump. 

Fox News host Laura Ingraham believes Stormy Daniels is treated more favorably than President Trump’s third wife. 

"It's amazing to watch the media attack women of substance while they laud a woman who hangs off a pole," she said in her broadcast Tuesday night. 

Meanwhile, Rudy Giuliani is denouncing claims by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough that he may have a drinking problem.

“Everybody around Donald Trump said he was drinking too much — Donald Trump suggested as much," Scarborough said on "Morning Joe" Tuesday morning. "That was two years ago."

Giuliani fired back at the comments in an interview with Politico

“There's no proof of any kind that I take too much alcohol," Giuliani said. "That's ridiculous."

He added: "I’m a lot more aware and intelligent than Joe has ever been, and a lot more accomplished. Joe hasn’t been knighted by the Queen of England. He hasn’t run a U.S. attorney’s office, much less a city that he turned around or went through 9/11."

Giuliani joined Trump’s legal team less than a month ago and there have already been reports that the president is growing frustrated with his longtime friend and new attorney.
