After profiling Melania Trump in GQ, journalist Julia Ioffe received a deluge of anti-Semitic threats and comments. The article below, which was reprinted from The Daily Kos, describes Melania Trump’s response to the verbal attacks on Ioffe.
After dispensing with the obligatory statement that she disagrees with the vile antisemitic letters sent by her (and presumably her husband’s) NeoNazi fans to a journalist, Melania Trump then went on to side with the same NeoNazis by saying that Julia Ioffe “provoked” the hateful antisemitic death threats in her profile of Melania Trump for GQ.
“I don’t control my fans,” Melania says, “but I don’t agree with what they’re doing. I understand what you mean, but there are people out there who maybe went too far. She provoked them.
