In an interview with Anderson Cooper on Monday night, Melania Trump said some rather dim things.
She brushed off husband Donald Trump’s "pussy" grabbing talk as chatter among "boys" and said Billy Bush was really to blame for egging Trump on in that scandalous Access Hollywood video.
It was the host’s fault that Donald said "dirty and bad stuff," according to Melania.
We wouldn’t call the aspiring first lady "brainless" for these comments; nor would we slam her as the B-Word. But then again… we aren’t Nicki Minaj.
During her performance at the Tidal X: 1015 concert in Brooklyn on Saturday, October 15, Minaj offered up her unsolicited opinion on the current political climate.
You’ll need to forgive some of our censorship below and figure out some of the words on your own.
But we’re confident you’ll be able to do so.
"You n—as are so f-cking weak, y’all got the audacity to be intimidated by the bad motherf–king queen and get your motherf–king feelings hurt,” Minaj shouted into the microphone at one point.
“But it’s O-motherf–king-K, ‘cause Barack needed a Michelle, bitch, and Bill needed a motherf-cking Hillary, bitch. You better pray to God you don’t get stuck with a motherf–king Melania.
"You n—as want brainless bitches? To stroke your motherf-cking egos? Well, f-ck you, n—as."
After receiving some backlash for bringing a sort of innocent bystander into the political picture, Minaj issued a half-hearted apology on Twitter on Sunday.
“Wasn’t ‘dragging,’” she wrote of her Melania comments, adding of Melania herself:
“She seems nice. But a smart man knows he needs a certain ‘kind’ of woman when running for President/attempting greatness."
And in case Minaj’s initial point wasn’t clear… or in case anyone interpreted her follow-up Tweet as her backing down in any way… Nicki later added the following message:
Melania Trump sat down with Cooper last night and has a Fox News interview scheduled for Tuesday morning.
But she’s mostly say idly by in this election, despite Trump being caught on video saying he likes to "grab [the] pussy" of beautiful women and that he can "do anything" to them because he’s a "star."
“The words my husband used are unacceptable and offensive to me,” Melania said in a statement soon after this notorious footage went viral.
“This does not represent the man that I know. He has the heart and mind of a leader. I hope people will accept his apology, as I have, and focus on the important issues facing our nation and the world.”
Those important issues, apparently, according to Donald himself, have to do with a "rigged" election and Hillary Clinton saying some mean things about Bill Clinton’s mistresses many decades ago.
In January, Melania Trump told Us Weekly that she prefers to keep her politics private, but that she does have her own opinions.
“I give him ideas, and I give him opinions,” she said of her role in her husband’s life. “Some stuff he listens to.”
If it makes Melania feel any better, Donald Trump doesn’t really listen to anyone except for himself.
As for the singer?
Minaj may be pregnant, so that could explain her outburst.
Although who are we kidding: since when did Nicki Minaj need a life growing in her womb to go off on nearly anyone and everyone?
Isn’t that why we love her?
