Former Republican consultant turned Lincoln Project founder Rick Owens said he thinks former first lady Melania Trump will end up doing OnlyFans.

It comes after Mrs Trump announced her “Head of State” auction on Twitter, in which a portion of the proceeds will “support children from the foster care community.”

She’s selling “three one-of-kind signed items,” including a hat she wore when she visited French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte.

But in the midst of her auction announcement, Wilson poked fun at her by quote tweeting that she’s “a few months” from joining the adult content network.

It was apparently a suggestion that the auction signaled that the couple were currently short of cash.

OnlyFans is well known for the sales of sexually explicit content. The platform had planned to ban that sort of content, with the founder Tim Stokely noting that they “had no choice”, before reversing course.

People on Twitter had many things to say, mostly making jokes of their own.

“For once they’re sticking to hard news…” someone joked.

“Apparently, Ricky has fantasies,” another added.

A third wrote: “Lmao, why would she need to do that? Her husband has all of the money in the world.”

This isn’t the first time Wilson mocked the former first lady.

In March 2020, Wilson suggested she “be infected” with Covid-19 in a tweet he sent out.

He received backlash from many, including Rep.Paul Gosar and Patriot candidate for Nevada governor Joey Gilbert.

Since her departure from the White House, Melania Trump has been fairly low-key, although she congratulated Bitcoin for their anniversary in a tweet on Monday.

“It is widely reported that Bitcoin’s market cap exceeds USD$1 Trillion. Today marks the 13th anniversary of the Bitcoin Genesis Block. Happy Anniversary, #SatoshiNakamoto #MelaniaNFT,” Melania captioned a tweet.

This occurred weeks after she launched her own non-fungible token (NFT) venture in which she was offering a watercolour painting of her eyes and a complimentary voice message.

Indy100 reached out to representatives of Wilson and Trump for comment.
