The First Lady went on to reaffirm her support for freedom of speech while slamming the bias reporting the media has cowered behind.
First lady Melania Trump on Thursday slammed the “senior official” who anonymously penned an anti-Trump op-ed in The New York Times -- with Mrs. Trump accusing the author of “sabotaging” the country.
“To the writer of the oped – you are not protecting this country, you are sabotaging it with your cowardly actions," she said in a statement.
The anonymous op-ed, published Wednesday, describes a secret inside plot to protect the country from President Trump’s “misguided impulses" and described “early whispers” of a possible Cabinet coup to boot Trump out of office via the 25th Amendment.
"This isn’t the work of the so-called deep state," the author claimed. "It’s the work of the steady state."
