'Where Are They?!': Campos-Duffy Calls on 'First Ladies Club' to Defend Melania After T.I. Video
Fox News contributor Rachel Campos-Duffy called on what she described as the "First Ladies Club" to condemn the mistreatment of Melania Trump.
Campo-Duffy was responding to a teaser video by rapper T.I. that shows a woman who resembles Mrs. Trump performing a striptease in the Oval Office.

The one-minute video was tweeted last Friday to promote the rapper's latest album.
"This is the most exclusive club in the world and it includes Mrs. Carter, Michelle Obama, Laura Bush. And I keep asking, where are they? This is the ultimate sisterhood, if you will, and they have been silent on the treatment of Melania Trump," Campos-Duffy said.
In response, Melania Trump's spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham tweeted that the video is "disgusting" and called for a boycott of T.I.

Campos-Duffy added that she's found the lack of support for Mrs. Trump "shocking" and that someone with cultural power like Mrs. Obama could easily remedy the situation.
"It would take one visit to Ellen [Degeneres], one visit to Jimmy Fallon, or [Jimmy] Kimmel's show or a tweet to say 'knock it off, lay off the president's family, especially our first lady,'" she said.
The wife of Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Wis.) added that Mrs. Obama's silence regarding the video is "passive-aggressive."
"She knows she has the power to end it."
