Melania's ex-friend: Trump family tainted by 'deceit, deception'

Source: ABC News

A former adviser and close friend of first lady Melania Trump's is now blasting the entire Trump family as a callous clan tainted by "deceit" and "deception," and claiming she's still "working with investigators" to dig into potential financial crimes committed in connection with Donald Trump's inauguration in early 2017.

"It was amateur hour then, and it's amateur hour now, and I think it's really frightening for our country," Stephanie Winston Wolkoff said in an exclusive interview with ABC News's Linsey Davis, a day before the release of her new book, "Melania and Me: The Rise and Fall of My Friendship with the First Lady."

"Everyone does need to know what ... this presidency is doing and what this propaganda machine behind this man at the White House is doing," she added.

Winston Wolkoff refused to confirm or deny recent reports that she secretly recorded conversations with Melania Trump and even captured the first lady disparaging the president's older children.

1. "Disloyal" and "Melania and Me" both due out in the next week. I think the Wolkoff book is a little

bit under the radar. Should be an interesting week.

2. Working with three prosecutors:

"I'm working with three different prosecutors, and it's taken over my life," she told ABC News, referring to the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Southern District of New York and local attorneys general in New Jersey and Washington, D.C.

4. "Tainted"? They're all awashed in deceit, deception.

If it isn't nailed down, they steal it. If it is, they bring a crowbar.

5. It's sort of obvious, isn't it?

I mean, Trump has been in the media for decades. His life has been an open book. His adulteries, bankruptcies, failed businesses and nasty personality have been front and center since at least the 1980s. Anyone with a brain could see how Trump was a walking disaster.

Wolkoff is a pretty naive person if she only realized how the Trump family is so corrupt after she was let go.

6. Trump kids probably treat her like a gold digger whore

Gee, I wonder why they would do that. Poor Barron, he probably gets insulted by them too.

11. Don't feel sorry for Barron. I hear the 3 of them are all out of the same mold you might say.

Melania calls Barron "little donald". So that will tell you something! However, just imagine having her as a step mother? Yuck! But loved her dress images @ the RNC. That was the crowing jewel
of the evening!

13. She's Barron's mother

I donít think she has anything but a superficial stiff arm relationship with Trumpís adult kids.

7. Everybody is trying to cash in on the Trumps...

well after their associations with them are over. OK, make some money off the worst family in the world. For everyone else's sake though, why do none of these people say anything while they're experiencing the heinous actions of the worst family in the world? It's always months, years after their horrible experiences with the Trumps is over, but nothing at the immediate time so other people could be warned.

I'll not buy their tell-all books just to enrich them. They chose to work for the Trumps knowing of their reputation as complete and total assholes, and now you want me to feel sorry for you and buy your book? Fat chance.

9. I'm with you

I wouldn't spend a dime on the drama they try to sell for their own enrichment. Two days after starting their jobs and associations with any member of this klan of American pox, they knew exactly what these cretins were about. And their associations show their politics regarding liberals and our left-wing politics. Hateful and as we have seen lately, violent.
