"Not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn't"

Speaking Tuesday at a Republican fundraiser, President Donald Trump reportedly cracked β€” kind of, sort of β€” that First Lady Melania Trump would not be overcome with grief if he was in a tragedy.

According to Politico, the president was referring to Rep. Steve Scalise, who was wounded in a mass shooting in 2017, when he said: β€œ[Scalise’s spouse] cried her eyes out when I met her at the hospital that fateful day … I mean, not many wives would react that way to tragedy. I know mine wouldn’t.”

President Trump, 73, made the remark while speaking for about an hour at a fundraiser for Take Back the House 2020, the joint fundraising committee of House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, according to Politico, which described Trump as β€œunscripted, unfiltered and totally in his element.”

(A White House spokeswoman did not respond to a request for comment on Trump’s statement about the first lady.)
