Melania Trump tweeted about “the truth” on Thursday and it was too ironic for many people to handle.
“The truth will prevail!” the first lady wrote in solidarity with a post from her chief of staff Stephanie Grisham accusing someone of “spreading falsehoods in exchange for a few dollars & some TV time.”
It’s unclear exactly who Grisham was referring to with her tweet. Social media users suggested it was about the journalist Bob Woodward or the first lady’s former friend, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who have both released books containing damning allegations about the Trump White House.
Critics of the first lady’s tweet recalled her past support of her husband’s racist “birther” conspiracy theory about former President Barack Obama and the thousands of lies that President Donald Trump has told since taking office:

A Trump wouldn’t know a truth if it slapped them across the face!— Erin (@ErinRF) September 11, 2020
It will, indeed. And that will end the reign of the wannabe king.— Khashoggi’s Ghost (@UROCKlive1) September 11, 2020
Your husband lies constantly about literally everything.
These words make you look like a fool.
Or just another liar.

Truth: President Coronavirus @realDonaldTrump downplays safety guidelines & holds rallies, promoting virus spread. @POTUS therefore has contributed directly to a death toll of more than 191,000 Americans.
