Melania's unusual request

This comes after Mrs. Trump did something very unusual for a First Lady: she asked that Mira Ricardel, deputy national security adviser, be fired after they had a run-in.

Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, said in a statement that Melania had lost confidence in Ricardel's ability to serve the president:

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

Michelle Obama responds

But while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live to talk about her new book, Becoming, comedian and show host Jimmy Kimmel asked Michelle Obama a controversial question.

He wanted to know what Michelle would do if she needed to call for the sacking of any White House staff who had rubbed her the wrong way.

And Michelle Obama laughed knowingly before she assured Kimmel that she and her husband never had to deal with an issue like that because all their staff had been exceptional.

Is she fanning the flames?

In an earlier interview, Michelle Obama revealed that she had extended a hand of friendship to Melania Trump, urging her to call if she needed any help or support, but Melania had snubbed the offer.

Is Michelle Obama being unnecessarily controversial answering questions meant to mock Melania or should FLOTUS have asked for help from her predecessor if she felt overwhelmed?
