One of the things I hate seeing is when Melania or Barron are attacked by people who don’t like Donald.
It’s not fair, and it needs to stop.
Perhaps it will now.
Melania just won a major settlement against a blogger who very FALSELY claimed that she had worked a prostitute.
Now that’s what I call FAKE NEWS!
Here are more details from the NY Post:
Melania Trump has won a “substantial” amount of money in a settlement with Maryland blogger who wrote about claims that she had once worked as a prostitute.
“The First Lady of the United States has settled her lawsuit against Webster Griffin Tarpley of Maryland,” said Matthew Blackett, one of Mrs. Trump’s attorneys.
“Mr. Tarpley has issued the attached retraction and apology to Mrs. Trump and her family, and agreed to pay her a substantial sum as a settlement,” Blackett said in a statement.
Blackett also provided The Post with a copy of the 71-year-old Gaithersburg, MD, resident’s apology.
“I posted an article on August 2, 2016 about Melania Trump that was replete with false and defamatory statements about her. I had no legitimate factual basis to make these false statements and I fully retract them,” it reads.
Tarpley did not return messages about the settlement, but his attorney confirmed the agreement.
The mea culpa continues, “I acknowledge that these false statements were very harmful and hurtful to Mrs. Trump and her family, and therefore I sincerely apologize to Mrs. Trump, her son, her husband and her parents for making these false statements.”
The deal was reached a day after Mrs. Trump sued the Mail Online in New York Supreme Court over a similar claims that she once worked as a high-priced call girl in the 1990s before marrying her husband.
