First lady Melania Trump said the most difficult part of being in the White House is dealing with the “opportunists,” like journalists, comedians and book writers, who use “my name or my family’s name” to “advance themselves.”

“I would say the opportunists who are using my name or my family’s name to advance themselves, from comedians to journalist to performs, book writers,” Trump said during an interview with Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Wednesday night, when asked about the challenges of being a first lady. “They like to focus on the gossip and I would like that they focus on the substance and what we do, not just about nonsense.”
