Actress Tim Mathewson had a very subtle exchange with former First Lady Melania Trump while praising her successor Dr. Jill Biden in a deleted tweet.
The reaction came after members of the National Guard were escorted out of the capital’s building and into a cold parking lot.
The “National Lampoon’s Animal House” star praised Biden and reacted to the gesture, which also included an indirect bush in his predecessor.
“It’s great to have a first lady with class and heart. And, she can speak English!” Matheson said.
BETTE MIDLER ACCUSED OF XENOPHOBIC TWEETS MOCKING MELANIA TRUMP: ‘SHE STILL CAN’T SPEAK ENGLISH’
Critics have ridiculed Matheson on social media, with many accusing the “black sheep” actor of xenophobia.
This tweet has since been deleted. Matheson later wrote in an apology: “This morning I made a hasty and silly joke about the former first lady. It wasn’t funny, and it tasted good. And I’m sorry. ”
Fox News also commented on Matheson’s representatives.
Melissa is not the first actor to make fun of Melania Trump’s accent. Bitt Midler was similarly accused of tearing up President Trump’s wife during his speech at last year’s Republican National Convention.
Midler tweeted, “Oh, God. He still can’t speak English.”
Midler later retweeted the tweet, saying: “I was wrong to make fun of his tone.”
