LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: A columnist for Los Angeles Times has been lambasted for ridiculing Melania Trump after reports claimed that the former first lady felt “violated” as the FBI raided Mar-a-Lago in August. Taking a dig at the wife of Donald Trump, Robin Abcarian noted in her essay, “This is simply the price you pay when you are married to a sticky-handed former president who is unable to grasp the difference between things that belong to him and things that do not.”

Abcarian’s opinion piece, titled ‘Melania Trump feels violated by the FBI search? Americans feel violated by her husband’s behavior’, also referred to Melania's friends telling Radar Online that she “doesn’t like the idea of strangers going rifling through her things.” Her pals’ had told the publication, “Who knows who touched her underwear during the raid? She's never going to feel comfortable wearing those ever again. Most people don’t know that Melania is a bigger germaphobe than her husband. She hates people touching her and certainly doesn’t want to put on lingerie that FBI agents have had their hands all over.”

While mocking those statements, the writer wrote, “While it’s unsettling to have strangers paw through your closets and unmentionables, the unprecedented search of Melania’s bedroom and closets was legal. The warrant applied to all the rooms of Trump’s residence — his office, his storage rooms and ‘all other rooms or areas within the premises used or available to be used by [Trump] and his staff.’”

She also questioned her role as the first lady of the US as she stated, “Melania never seemed comfortable in the role of first lady. Even while she seemed sometimes an object of pity, she was not a particularly sympathetic figure. She left office as the least popular first lady since such surveys were conducted.”

Abcarian then went on to warn the mother-of-one by saying, “Turns out you have to put up with the occasional search warrant in service of the occasional suspected felony. And the occasional besmirching of your panties by government hands, even gloved ones,” before poking fun at her sex life with Trump.

One of Melania’s anonymous pals had told Radar Online that “It’s her bedroom. Even her husband isn’t allowed in her bedroom. Even if they wore gloves, it is still strangers going through your underwear draws. She has already bought new underwear and thrown everything that has been contaminated away.” Abcarian could not control herself from commenting on this statement as she said, “Well, then, where do they ... ah, never mind.” She then added, “But seriously, who besides some overly ardent members of the Trump base will get their knickers in a knot over agents touching the former first lady’s things? To borrow a phrase made famous by Melania herself, I really don’t care, do you?” referring to a $39 jacket that the former model wore while visiting a migrant child detention center in 2018.

Meanwhile, Abcarian’s words against Melania have left many angry and frustrated as they jumped online to slam her. A user tweeted, “Typical libtard media spin….this whole hoax just being pushed by the media.” Another user wrote, “Absolutely appalling of LA Times how columnist Robin Abcarian mocks  Melania Trump’s comments that she felt violated by the FBI, she went further claiming  Melania deserved it -which is petty & vindictive.” “Not only is the tone of the article very ‘mean girl’, she supports the trampling of constitutional right to privacy along political lines,” the third user noted.

A person shared, “Does anybody really read latimes?  It is a leftist brace of ‘poop’!!” The second one added, “Obviously her psycho jealousy of Melanie's beautiful looks, incredible IQ and vast fortune made Robin's TDS boil over. Wonder why Robin isn't the least bothered that not one of Maxwells clients has been raided, investigated or justly suffered for their real pedophile crimes?”

Following the backlash, Abcarian took to Twitter to share about it as she penned, “Getting so much hate after writing about Melania Trump's distress at having her underwear drawer searched, including an email calling me every nasty name under the sun, ending with this: ‘PS. If you’d like to have an intelligent conversation feel free to give me a call.’🤣🤣🤣🤣.”

But hate words against her did not end there as a tweet below the post read, “Unknown columnist writing for a paper no one reads. Big words like underwear thrill her.” Another tweet said, “Whatever happened to neutral fact telling in written articles?  I do not understand the rude and condescending language that is used in so many journalistic pieces.  That goes for both sides of the isle.  The reader should not know who the writer favors or what  party she favors.” “What a pathetic five minutes of fame. Enjoy it while it lasts. Oh and I’m sure there are plenty of MAGA people that would love to have an intelligent conversation with you. Can we discuss something other than another woman’s panties?” a comment added.
