Melania Trump's spokesperson fires back in feud with ‘Ellen’ producer

A Twitter fight between First Lady Melania Trump’s spokesperson and a producer from the ‘“The Ellen DeGeneres Show” has escalated.

It started when “Ellen” executive producer Andy Lassner tweeted out the following message: "I'm way more afraid of another Melania getting in to this country than I am of any caravan of human beings seeking asylum.”

Lassner's tweet seemingly referenced the caravan of thousands of immigrants that are making their way from Central America in hopes of reaching US territory.

FLOTUS has not personally responded, but her spokesperson, Stephanie Grisham, did, with the following tweet: “Hi @andylassner @flotus is hosting children at the White House today to talk to them about kindness ... should I save you a seat?”

 

Lassner replied once more asking what time he should arrive and if he should dress up for the event. He also made references to Melania Trump’s controversial "I really don’t care, do you” jacket and her alleged support over false claims that former President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States.
