Looks Like Melania Trump Is an Insecure Fan, Despite Issa Rae's Comment

They've both shared the title of First Lady of the United States, but it appears that Michelle Obama and Melania Trump do have one additional thing in common: They're fans of Issa Rae's hit show, Insecure.

In her Glamour magazine cover profile, Rae shared that Obama told her that she enjoyed the show after being turned onto it by her daughters Sasha and Malia.

"It was like talking to my auntie," she said of the encounter with Obama. "It bums me out that I will never have that feeling again of the First Family fucking with us so hard and getting us," she continued. "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.’"

Responding to a Page Six article which referenced Rae's Glamour story, Melania's communications director, Stephanie Grisham, wrote that FLOTUS is also a fan of the HBO hit.

"Alert: FYI @IssaRae," wrote Grisham. "@Flotus likes your show!" She made sure to throw in a TV emoji for good measure.

Rae responded to the tweet by referencing one of the internet's favorite conspiracy theories (that is, that the First Lady has a body double.)

We think it's safe to assume that no, Insecure will not be canceled in the wake of this revelation about the First Lady.

It's unclear whether or not Grisham, speaking on behalf of the First Lady, was being sincere or using a heavy dose of sarcasm, especially given the regularity with which she comes after the press.

Hours before tweeting about Rae's hit dramedy, she tweeted a "corrected" version of a Hollywood Life article with edits that simply read, "FALSE" and "What does this have to do with anything?" (The sentence in question pertained to recent developments in the ongoing Mueller investigation, which the article was about.)

Though Twitter has certainly seen far, far worse language (including vitriol directed at the First Lady herself), a hostile tone does seem a tad out of touch for the communications director of the First Lady, whose entire platform is built on the foundation of ending online bullying and harassment. But who are we to judge!
