While President Donald Trump was busy calling an adult film star with whom he allegedly had an affair a “horseface” on Twitter Tuesday morning, the spokesperson for Melania Trump was having a meltdown after a rapper depicted the first lady as a stripper in recently released video.

According to TMZ, White House Director of Communications for Melania Trump, Stephanie Grisham, expressed shock and dismay at Rapper T.I.’s video of himself as a president in the Oval Office being entertained by a woman initially wearing a “I really don’t care, do u?” jacket.

“How is this acceptable? #disgusting #boycottT.I,” Grissom tweeted.

TMZ claims Grisham later followed up with a clarification in a statement saying, “Like it or not, she is the First Lady and this is the White House. It’s disrespectful and disgusting to portray her this way simply because of politics.”

She then added, “These kinds of vulgar attacks only further the divisiveness and bias in our country – it needs to stop.”
