‘Insecure’ Actress Claims She’d Cancel Her Own Show If Melania Trump Liked It. Melania Calls Her Bluff.

Actress Issa Rae, who writes and stars in the hit HBO comedy, “Insecure,” told Glamour magazine this week that she was thrilled to find out Michelle Obama watched (and liked) her show, but, Rae added, she’d be less than thrilled to find out the current First Lady, Melania Trump, was a fan.

“You really watch it?’ She was like, ‘Yes. Sasha and Malia put me on to it,’” Rae recalled about her conversation with the former First Lady. “It was like talking to my auntie. It bums me out that I will never have that feeling again of the First Family f**king with us so hard and getting us.”

“If Melania [Trump] said that to me, I would be like, ‘Well, I guess it’s canceled. We’re not making this show. It’s not ours anymore,” Rae added.

It turns out, not only does Melania watch the show, she also saw Rae’s interview, and her office fired back, calling Rae’s bluff.

Obviously Rae isn’t going to cancel her hit HBO show in the middle of its run just because its available on cable to anyone with a television and a credit card and she shouldn’t. It would be silly for Rae to punish herself because someone who thinks “the wrong way” enjoys some comedy.

Fortunately, the actress and comedian has a sense of humor, and played along with Grisham, referencing a joke-conspiracy theory about Melania Trump hiring a stand-in.

Melania may not be the most beloved First Lady of all time — at least by the Left — but she might actually be the sharpest. Nothing gets past her.
