Former First Lady Michelle Obama appeared on "20/20" this past Sunday to promote her new memoir, "Becoming." During the interview, the new First Lady Melania Trump came up.


The interviewer Robin Roberts wanted to know if Obama had offered to give Trump advice. In response to this question, the first lady’s spokeswoman made it clear where she stood.

During a recent interview, Michele Obama’s interviewer Robin Roberts mentioned the fact that former First Lady Laura Bush had offered to give her advice whenever she needed it. After the 2016 election, Obama made the same offer to First Lady Melania Trump.

Roberts was interested to find out if the current first lady had ever reached out to Obama for advice since. The former first lady responded by saying, "No, no she hasn't."

In response to the question, Trump’s spokeswoman offered a reason as to why the first lady had never reached out to Obama for guidance. On Tuesday, Stephanie Grisham released a statement that basically said Trump didn’t need Obama’s advice.


The post read:

"Mrs. Trump is a strong and independent woman who has been navigating her role as First Lady in her own way. When she needs advice on any issue, she seeks it from her professional team within the White House."


Social media users responded to the clip of the interview with differing opinions. Some wanted to know if Obama had ever asked Bush for advice.


Others sided with Trump saying she didn’t need Obama’s advice and that was fine. A Twitter user named Maggie Kavarian had a funny take on the whole matter.


She wrote:

“I'm sure she truly appreciated taking her speech and plagiarizing from Michelle...but hey....I dont really care, do you?”


Despite hardly addressing the media on political matters, on Tuesday, Trump released another statement through Grisham. The first lady publicly called for the firing of a senior National Security Council official Mira Ricardel.

The statement read:

"It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House."

It’s believed that Ricardel has repeatedly angered the East Wing.
