Melania doesn't get Ivana's "first lady" joke and refers to her as "attention-seeking"

When Donald Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump, laughed in an interview today that she was "first lady," referring to the fact that she was his "first wife," Melania Trump seemed to miss the joke.

She immediately responded to CNN, via her communications director Stephanie Grisham, to make sure it was clear to everyone that she, and not Ivana, is the official first lady:

"Mrs. Trump has made the White House a home for Barron and the President. She loves living in Washington, DC, and is honored by her role as first lady of the United States. She plans to use her title and role to help children, not sell books… There is clearly no substance to this statement from an ex, this is unfortunately only attention-seeking and self-serving noise."

Not only did she miss the silly humor, she responded in the way her husband would – with criticism and sarcasm, referring to Ivana's words as "attention-seeking" and "self-serving noise."

Here's Ivana's interview, promoting her book Raising Trump, with Amy Robach on Good Morning America:
