A new video released Friday by Melania Trump shows the former first lady confronting some of her harshest critics on the campaign trail, and it’s nothing short of brilliant.
It’s a stunning video of the first lady taking on the media for being unfair, sexist and lying about her husband’s alleged misconduct during the 2016 presidential election.
“They think they can say anything to me, but they can’t,” Melania Trump says in the video.
“And I will tell you, I will never be able to stand by and watch it happen again.”
The video, titled “I Will Stand With You and Your Lies,” has been viewed more than two million times on YouTube.
It also has been seen on Facebook by more than 3.7 million people, and is getting rave reviews.
“A woman who has a husband who has been accused of sexual assault, who is accused of harassment, who has also been accused in the past of making racist remarks, I have to say, I really, really feel like I’m on her side, that she is my friend, my supporter,” said Fox News commentator Andrea Tantaros.
The video has also gone viral, with many celebrities and politicians expressing their support for the First Lady, who was a strong candidate in the 2016 election, and even received the highest ratings for a first lady in modern history.
“You’re going to be my first first lady, Melania,” said Trump during the video, adding that she was “proud to have her as my first lady.”
The first lady’s video has already been viewed nearly 10 million times, according to YouTube, and some commentators are even praising her for being a feminist.
“I love how she’s a feminist,” said comedian Kathy Griffin.
“She has the right to say what she wants to say.”
The clip was released as the president prepares to deliver his State of the Union address, which is slated to take place on Jan. 26.
Trump has repeatedly called out the media as being biased against him, saying they have been “sick and tired of the lies” from the media and accusing them of having “no credibility” or being “dishonest.”
“I will not let them continue to say that they are going to lie to us or they’re going not to let us win,” Trump said in a January speech.
“They’re going take it to another level, and they are so dishonest and so dishonest.
They are a bunch of scum.”
The former first daughter also took to Twitter to praise the First Ladies family, writing, “My family is the most amazing family I have ever known.
It’s an honor to be your wife and mother.”
The family has been outspoken about the alleged sexual misconduct allegations against Trump, and has made multiple public appearances and social media posts, with Melania Trump frequently retweeting posts from the family.
In February, the family issued a statement saying that it “stands with the victim of this abhorrent behavior and calls for justice for our friend, and for all victims of sexual misconduct.”
Trump has been under fire from some in the media, with critics accusing him of perpetuating a false narrative about his accusers and even of lying about the allegations to reporters.
“It’s really difficult to watch,” Fox News host Sean Hannity said in January.
“I can’t even think of anything that Melania Trump has done wrong.
It doesn’t even make any sense.”
But many celebrities have supported the First Family, including actor Billy Bob Thornton, who said he “always knew she was a great person” and that he would “do anything to help” her husband.
“The truth will set you free,” he said in an interview with the Fox News show Hannity and Colmes.
“This is an incredible woman.
She’s been the best wife I ever had.
She was so supportive of me.
I never doubted her.
She would do anything for me.”
Melania Trump is set to deliver her State of The Union address Jan. 24.
