The spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump, who has been snarky with reporters in the past, got into a Twitter spat this week with Andy Lassner, a Twitter provocateur and the executive producer of “The Ellen Show.”

In a tweet, Lassner defended the caravan of migrants approaching the U.S., which has inspired a great deal of right-wing fear-mongering in recent days. He said he’d prefer to have the caravan enter the U.S. than “another Melania.”

Stephanie Grisham responded with a sarcastic invite to the first lady’s “talk about kindness.”

Lassner shot back: “Is it dressy?”

The squabble escalated from there.
