Melania Trump was salty & tone-deaf about her precious White House tennis pavilion

I just realized that I haven’t written about Melania Trump at all in 2020. It’s weird that this is my first post about the First Lady all friggin’ year, but here we are. For what it’s worth, I can go months without seeing Melania or even thinking about her. She’s mastered that dark-art of disappearing for chunks of time and no one asks any questions about it. Melania was out last week though, at least out enough to have the White House photographer take her picture beside the construction of the new White House tennis pavilion.

Melania announced plans for the tennis pavilion last year to a lot of criticism, because… obviously. It’s very Marie Antoinette-esque to spend taxpayer dollars on a “tennis pavilion” on federal grounds, which will only be used by the first family. First families can, historically, make changes to the White House and the WH grounds as they please, but in recent years, these kinds of major changes are frowned upon. Then again, Melania DID keep Michelle Obama’s vegetable garden, so maybe we should give her a pass? *thinks about it for a moment* Nah.

In any case, she posted the above photo of her official FLOTUS social media accounts with the message: “I am excited to share the progress of the Tennis Pavillion at @WhiteHouse. Thank you to the talented team for their hard work and dedication.” Tone deaf much? Her husband is grossly mishandling the coronavirus panic, the markets are crashing and a coronavirus-induced recession may very well hit in the next few months. Not to mention the fact that thousands of people (maybe even tens of thousands) will likely die. So, yeah, f–k her tennis pavilion. People f–king said that on to her on her social media accounts too, which led to this:

I’m laughing my ass off. Melania is SO SALTY. About her tennis pavilion. She’s all “y’all are haters, you wish you had a taxpayer-funded tennis pavilion.” Mostly we just wish there were enough coronavirus tests for the growing catastrophe?? If you want a good laugh, check out the comments under that tweet.

    She wanted to show the progress. Who cares. Really? Sit down trick. I can’t.

    • manda says:

      meanwhile, it is only being built to take down the basketball court that obama put in. These people are so transparent in their attempts to erase the stuff the obamas did. I’m personally shocked that the vegetable garden is still there, but there still is time for them to destroy it.

      • liz says:

        The basketball court was (sort of) already there. The Reagan’s(?) had put in a hard court tennis court in the 80s. President Obama had a basketball hoop installed at one end and painted lines for half-court basketball in addition to the lines for the tennis court (tennis lines were white, basketball lines were yellow).

      • Yvette says:

        @Manda … Is she actually building it on Obama’s basketball court?? I don’t know why I’m surprised. When I first heard about her tennis pavilion I just knew she’d build it on top of Michelle’s garden.

        Remember when everyone thought Melania was an unwilling victim being held captive by Donald Trump? They are actually two peas in the same pod. I can’t even with her any more.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I don’t really have feelings about her 1st tweet, but the second one is so undignified. She always has to retort and address the “haters”, when she really should be above that. Michelle faced so much worse with so much grace, and I guess she raised my standards for what a First Spouse should be.

    • Thirtynine says:

      Comment deleted.

  2. VS says:

    She is another one of those empty-headed people……..she really brings nothing to any conversation so I think this is the best she can do!

    There are tons of women like her in NY; so those will enjoy knowing about her tennis and if the public is with us, she will never get to enjoy her useless project!!!

  3. Carmen says:

    Poor Melanoma isn’t getting much love for her vanity project… “insufferable fuckwit”… 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  4. Scollins says:

    See me give her the Nancy Boss Pelosi hand clap. Flotits so dumb. So if she’s calling it community service when will we see all the underprivileged children of color using the tennis court? Fatass donny sure cant use it unless someone gets a wheelbarrow.

    • Carmen says:

      Had a visual of his fat ass being hauled over the lawn in a wheelbarrow. You made me spit tea all over my iPad. 😆😆😆

    • AnnaKist says:

      Oh, blimey. I think I just wee’d a little… 😂😂😂

    • Esmom says:

      Scollins, so true. For her to flip criticism on the tennis thing onto people not doing enough good in their communities is so ridiculous. I’m sure she didn’t write the tweet, either, someone else scrambled to invent that tortured rationalization.

  5. AnnaKist says:

    No one notices when she goes underground for months on end, because no one cares, not even her husband’s supporters by the sound of it. Can someone maker her disappear again, please? I wonder if she’ll lock herself away in a sanitised bunker to avoid any risk of contracting Covid-19? After all, she won’t want to risk peasants breathing on her.
    The world is facing a major health crisis, and she’s there supervising the building of a bloody tennis pavilion that only her family will use. What a massive ”eff you” to people who cannot afford decent medical care at a time like this. I guess she’ll be giving her famous jacket another whirl any day now…

  6. Seraphina says:

    In a way I feel sorry for her. She by no means wanted this position, she was thrown into it. It shows she has zero interest in doing ANYTHING really life altering while in the White House. She would have much rather stayed as the aging trophy wife in Florida doing useless things while spending Don’s money. The only positive is that once we vote out Don, she can go too. The smugness was a bit too much in her tweet. Some humility would do her good. I believe, and correct me if I’m wrong, she grew up in poor environment so it baffles me that she is tone deaf. And what the hell is up with that FACE??? She HATES the position she’s in.

    • Scollins says:

      O but she’s making bank off her own businesses esp in EurAsia. She’s complicit in all fatass donny’s crimes.
      Plus if she was even a remotely caring parent she’d take that kid of theirs far far away.

      • Seraphina says:

        Scollins, thank you for pointing that info out. I’m not well versed in what she has in the side but I have no doubt she has her hands dirty too (not from honest work either) birds of a father do flock together.

      • B n A fn says:

        @scollins, Thank you! So true, she is as complicit in everything 45 is doing.

    • Badrockandroll says:

      Birthers of a feather flock together. I will cut no slack for anyone in that family.

      • Lolo86lf says:

        Nothing would give me more pleasure than seeing the Trumps being voted out of the White House.

    • Allergy says:

      I do not feel sorry for her AT ALL. Scollins is right. She’s completely aware of everything that is going on. I think she’s stupid, but I do not think she’s dumb when it comes to money.

      Another thing, sooner or later everyone in the Dump family or in the WH near Dump always gets that same sour mouth. How? Is it through osmosis? That dictator pout?

    • tiredTreaded says:

      Nah. NO. I don’t “feel sorry” for a woman who vied for trophy wife, got it, lives it. So now she has to “work” for her money by curbing her filthy rich ways? She doesn’t care, and I’d doubt she ever did or will.

    • Nic919 says:

      She could have divorced him. She did not. She deserves all the misery.

    • Arpeggi says:

      The only person I feel sorry for is Barron. She chose to be there, she chooses to do nothing and profit from his cons, she’s complicit.

      • Lucy2 says:

        I feel for their kid too. But not for her. Not for her one bit. I don’t really care, do you?

    • kacy says:

      She did not grow up poor. Her father was a communist party member so he had a reasonable income.

    • Casey says:

      she knew who she was marrying, she went after the dollars. she made her bed, she can lie in it for all I care.

    • virginfangirls says:

      My mama always told me “You are the company you keep.”

    • agnes says:

      She sat on tv and spread the birther-bullshit about Obama.

      She deserves everything, every little ounce of critisism, ridicule and mockery.
      And I hope, that these things will follow her for the next couple of decades.

      #BeBest my arse,

    • Jaded says:

      She actually grew up middle-class. Her dad owned some car dealerships and her mother worked as a pattern-maker for a clothing manufacturer. However, Madam “I really don’t care do you” is nothing but sleazy grifter. You lie down with dogs you get fleas.

  7. Scollins says:

    That one pic looks like she’s ready to eat someone’s face off.
    Run! Run for your fkn life, staffers!

  8. MsIam says:

    Has anyone else noticed that Melania seems to be morphing into Trump? Look at her expression in the pic with the black shirt. Same color hair, just a few more pounds added and voila! Hopefully the whole useless bunch will get the boot in November.

    • Allergy says:

      Yes I just posted below that everyone near him always starts looking like him! It’s so weird!

    • kellebelle says:

      Yes, I have, lol. She’s looking awfully sour and full of fresh face fillers, only they’re not making her look so fresh.

    • It’sjustblanche says:

      She looks like trump and the Grinch has a baby.

    • Arpeggi says:

      He thinks he’s beautiful: the only way to get his attention is by looking like him so he can stare at his own reflection

    • Kate says:

      Yes coming here to say this!! Why do they look so much alike these days?!

    • lucy2 says:

      Wow, I didn’t notice it at first, but that last photo…freaky.

      • Justwastingtime says:

        She is morphing into wife#1 Ivanna.. same hard face.. Ivanka is headed there as well.

  9. Lolo86lf says:

    Melania’s assistant says to Melania: Mrs. Trump the Coronavirus infections are growing rapidly in the United States! She responds: Oh are they? then let them eat cake, I mean show them my fabulous tennis Pavilion being built.

  10. Jay says:

    Never have two people been more deserving of each other.

  11. Jerusha says:

    Yeah, I gave her a comment. She deserved all the knocks she got.

  12. Allergy says:

    And why does it have to be called “pavillion?” This is also a Dump thing, calling a house “a manor,” and so on.

  13. Suzieq359 says:

    Why doesn’t she go build something in the community like so told the commenters and not just on their grounds. Oh wait she already told and showed us with her jacket, she doesn’t care.

  14. Florence says:

    So…is she evil, or just incredibly stupid?

    And why is her hair so weird at the front?

    I don’t understand her haha.

  15. Lenn says:

    I just realized: Trump could get the coronovirus, and he is considered elderly, right?

    • 10KTurtle says:

      Maybe he caught it from making out with that flag at CPAC.

      • Scollins says:

        Lol! What a pathetic sight that was. I expected him to next get caught up in it and fall down flailing.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        Actually, someone who shook his hand, and Pence’s hand, DID test POSITIVE for the virus.

        Karma.

    • holly hobby says:

      Ted Cruz got it and so did that dentist GOP Rep. There are reports of Wetsy Betsy and Kellyanne being exposed because they were in that room. I really hope whoever that person is will spread it far and wide to the base.

  16. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    Poor Melania. She can go right on and f*ck off all the way back to NY, for all I care. I hope these grifters are gone after November.

  17. 10KTurtle says:

    Did she keep the garden? I read elsewhere that she’s doing this to pave over the basketball court and the garden that the Obamas installed. Does she even play tennis? Maybe we need to have a rule about no major WH renovations in an election year like we do for no Supreme Court nominee votes in an election year. <———sarcasm

  18. Mabs A'Mabbin says:

    I hate them. I don’t hate anything (‘cept eggplant maybe), so all my hate reserves go to those two. And their supporters. I should fling some hate their way too.

  19. shasha says:

    Is it just me or does she look like Fat Don in drag in that last pic??

  20. Louise177 says:

    Does anyone know what the “Be Best” campaign is? I know it’s anti-cyberbullying but what does it do? The only thing I’ve seen is Melania doing a speech once a year.

  21. Jerusha says:

    Fiona Hill is on 60 Minutes tonight, for anyone wanting a contrast to the First Bimbo.

  22. KellyRyan says:

    What do you do with a reality show host whose show is failing? Release him from his contract.

    What do you do with a trophy wife? Put her on the shelf.

    If you’re married to a bad parent, you divorce to protect your child. If you are complicit, you remain and have a photo op with a hard hat.

  23. Leah says:

    Don’t know why she’s bothering to build it seeing as it’s going to be dug up by next year.

  24. Rapunzel says:

    First of all, I doubt Melanoma actually writes her social media posts, so this isn’t really her getting salty. She’s probably not even aware of what’s being posted or the controversy. It’s not like she actually lives at the WH. So let’s keep that in mind.

    Second, the tennis court (I won’t call it a pavilion cause that’s just dumb) is to erase the Obama basketball court, but is also a sign that the Trumps plan to stay after the election. What does Don have planned that Melanie knows she’s gonna need a tennis court?

    Third, Trump is at Mar-a-Lago golfing. The mishandling of this crisis is awful.

    • holly hobby says:

      That sounds like that drunk, lying Stephanie Grisham (I think she was arrested for DUI. I read that in an article).

  25. ChillyWilly says:

    She wants the haters to do something good for their communities? How is this tennis court benefiting anyone but themselves? Ugh, I hate this twat with the fire of 1,000 suns.

  26. Christina says:

    She has a giant square head!

  27. MariaS says:

    Ugly personalities really do change physical features. Melania used to be attractive in her youth. Now she has her disgusting husband’s malevolent glare and harsh mouth. She is hideous in every way.

  28. Sparky says:

    The tennis court in and of itself is not a big deal. Every president does this sort of modification and it’s supposedly paid for by private donations. The problems are the tone deaf tweets (we are going through a crisis) and the fact that, unlike her predecessors, this FLOTUS has done nothing to help Americans. Compare “Be Best” to something like “Just Say No” or Betty Ford supporting the ERA. Yeah… no comparison.

    My favorite part of this story is that #BeBestMyAss was trending on Twitter last night!!

  29. Lucy2 says:

    My guess is the only reason the garden still stands is that it is paid for by an outside funding source, and maintained by the national Park service. The Obamas set it up that way to ensure it’s survival. Very smart.

    I don’t take issue with first families adding things to the White House property, but it’s a little insane to me that she’s doing this with less than a year left (please God please) and choosing NOW to publicize it.

  30. Rocķy says:

    Why are they wearing hard hats?

  31. L4frimaire says:

    OMG the comments! Some are funny and salty AF but a lot of disgust with this administration. So clueless and tone deaf. All that’s going on and this is what she addresses the American people about. Be best, indeed!

  32. adastraperaspera says:

    This tennis court story is just fodder for the disinformation campaign to hide facts about Trump’s manipulation of the Covid-19 outbreak (such as his investment in a company that will be providing tests). Melania has no personal agency. She’s trotted out to be a smoke screen.

  33. JRenee says:

    The die hards don’t get it or care. she’s complicit

  34. CooCoo Catchoo says:

    Melania’s office called the tennis court her “legacy project.” Fittingly, it involves balls.

  35. Stelly says:

    So while markets are crashing and potentially thousands are being infected by a serious virus she’ll be off…playing tennis. Be best Melania!
