JNS.org The wife of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, Melania Trump, said that while antisemitic abuse leveled at Jewish reporter Julia Ioffe for a critical profile of the potential first lady went too far, the reaction to the article was also “provoked.”

“I don’t control my fans,” Melania Trump told lifestyle magazineDuJour. “I don’t agree with what they’re doing.”

After Ioffe wrote the article for GQ magazine, in which she also revealed that Melania Trump has a half brother born out of wedlock in Slovenia, Melania Trump had called the profile “inaccurate” and an invasion of her privacy.

Ioffe later received a barrage of antisemitic emails, calls, and social media messages—and even death threats—for the article. Ioffe eventually filed a police complaint due to the threats. Melania Trump told DuJour that while “there are people out there who maybe went too far,” Ioffe’s article “provoked them.”

    Israel remember this and remember it well, the liberal Jews in part are dismantling Israeland are Israels worst enemy. Why? Because you believe they have your best interests at heart because they are Jews. They are selling you out and are are the spear throwers for those that are going to annihilate you…..with few exceptions…such as Dershowitz. If liberal Jews attack The only man on earth that can save Israel they will be met with extreme measures.

  • It is all about Donald Trump. Donald Trump came up into politics because of what did happen in USA foreign politics by previous USA presidents and Obama – Hillary Clinton politics which did split the entire world politics mind’s under the planned trap of the new world order. Obama did say that the world is more connected today than before, it is not true! The world is more divided to day than before! Donald Trump is a hot tempered man who does take risks and do no play games. Trump did say impulsively thinks as building a wall on Mexico border and stopping Muslims entering USA is a wrong political message to say. Trump knows that he was wrong, but by been wrong shows also that man do not play games and that Trump is able to admit saying wrong before doing wrong! Is a fact that Donald Trump is more trusted person than Obama and Hillary Clinton altogether? Hillary C. was blind as secretary of stat flying solo to Beijing bringing a Chinese blind man to USA, not been aware of that a blind man do become double blind when changing his natural environment, the Chinese blind man who does not speaks English was borrowed to Norway as a political trap tool in Oslo Freedom Forum which was a fake staged event and which Hillary Clinton did got money for it. This not politics but a trap! Obama did say something and did something ells in Syria, in Libya, in Afghanistan, was the cause for the refugees in move which many of them happen to be Muslims and in Europe recording Germany chancellor Angela Merkel Mobil phone call is a trap criminal politics which had nothing to do with spying, it was and is controlling the collective mind’s of German people who are the cause for Europe Union to take place. Obama has a gift to make people unhappy. The people who were provoked can not try to make people unhappy by death threats, their tool of minds attacks are cowardice and will never works out! A movie man did say “ There will be no Donald Trump” in Cannes, where his wife could even no walk and in top of it, he did say “ his wife is an intelligent women” which a real man will never say openly that his wife is an intelligent women which is a fact, he is a trap idiot against his own wife and against Donald Trump, he also did say that painting is not art, forgetting that painting is the roots of all arts and that film as his movies are but political trap illusion.

    What does that have to do with Donald. GIVE US A BREAK.
    How about Bill Clinton being caught with his pants down in the white house forcing a Jewish woman to engage in sexual acts. And in the time since his college years having hundreds of such encounters. Hillary knew about it an married the no good 2 timing jerk anyway. That she had control of. Not divorseing him sfter the scandel she had control of. Isn’t this the role model we want to pass along to our children? The Clintons are morally bankrupt. Find me a newspaper that will call it what it is. WRONG

  • Melania: That was the wrong answer. The correct answer is that racial and ethnic slurs are never appropriate in an disagreement. Never!!!
