Why Does The Media Hate Melania
Melania Trump has been the First Lady for over a year and has only been on the cover of one fashion magazine… on it’s Mexico edition.
It’s hard to shake off the idea that this is anything but a political decision. The First Lady is a former model, friendly to major name designers and who is active in children’s charities, online bullying and gently asking Donald to use less vulgar language. She ought to be the perfect muse and cover girl — a beautiful woman who is also a wife and mother whose ability to speak five languages was the key to opening up her international modeling career.
So why all the hate for such a nice lady?
Ronald Reagan was a Hollywood actor and is still hated by the left. They don’t care about the level of celebrity, and they don’t care whether it’s someone like Melania who isn’t involved in the political process itself — it’s all about promoting left wing ideas.
The fact that she’s a looker must really rile up the left, as well. Scroll through Fox News and you’ll find beautiful women. Good luck doing the same on the liberal channels.
Two years after moving to the United States in 1996, Melania met Donald at a Fashion Week party in 1998. She was also by his side when he campaigned in 2000 for the presidential nomination from the center-right Reform Party. Before that, while in university, Melania studied design and architecture, a fitting field for a woman who would go on to woo a powerful real estate developer.
Do They Hate That Melania Is Beautiful and Foreign?
With fluency in English, French, German, Serbian and her native Slovenian, Melania still suffers a media that attempts to portray her as a beautiful, stupid bimbo struggling to piece together her thoughts. While the left loves a fat woman in a bikini, they hate that Melania and Ivanka choose to wear stilettos:
“Calling Ivana, Ivanka, Melania and the Trump daughters-in-law “the female consorts of the Leader of the Free World,” Newsweek writes darkly that they “do not set foot in public without first molding their arches into the supranatural curve that Mattel toy designers once devised for Barbie’s plastic feet.”
First of all, say “unnatural” not “supranatural,” because this is the news not an essay on poetry. Second of all, expensive stilettos are comfortable, so long as you’re not ramming the force of 400 pounds of big beautiful woman into each step.
Maybe Melania has weird foreign, non-American feet that let her wear heels. I’ll note that Melania is the second first lady born outside of the United States, the first being Louisa Adams, the English-born wife of John Quincy Adams.
Do They Hate Her Charitable Focus?
Instead of barging into schools across the country and demanding them lose their regional foods in favor of disgusting garbage, Melania has chosen cyberbullying as her focus. Melania had previously been involved in charities including the Police Athletic League and the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
As first lady, she’s often seen smiling with a kid planted on her lap during events. Trust me, kids, in 20 years you’ll be floored at seeing those photos, and you there completely oblivious to what’s happening.
Looking forward to visiting @JBABdc today to help @ToysForTots_USA sort & pack toys to be shipped to children across the country in time for #Christmas! Thank you to all who volunteer time for others – esp during the holidays.

They Sure Hate Her Cost Saving Measures
Compared to Michelle Obama, Melania has cut the costs incurred by the First Lady’s office by 75%. Most of her hired hands are there to help with scheduling and with answering the bags of mail she receives every day.
None of this is praised by the press, who instead focus on Donald Trump’s golf vacations… which he takes at his own property in Florida, where he invites foreign dignitaries, and where he and Melania host nearby armed forces and coast guard for Thanksgiving and Christmas festivities.
Melania Has Her Own Life Goals
In a 1999 interview with Melania, the New York Times asked her what role she envisioned for herself as America’s First Lady, should Donald win his nomination with the Reform Party and take the nation:
“I would be very traditional. Like Betty Ford or Jackie Kennedy. I would support him.”
And a few months before he did win the 2016 election, Melania was asked whether she quietly goes along with everything her husband says and believes.
“I don’t agree with everything that he says, but you know, that is normal. I’m my own person, I tell him what I think, I’m standing very strong on the ground on my two feet and I’m my own person, and I think that’s very important in the relationship.”
Melania is indeed traditional, because she doesn’t trash talk her husband in the press and instead waits until they have a private moment to discuss what happened in public. It’s the high charged equivalent of not fighting in front of your kids. You look much better when you have a unified front.
So far, Melania has only clarified to media at least one thing on which the two disagree. Melania doesn’t like “some [of the] language” he uses.
“I don’t try to change him. He’s an adult. He knows the consequences and so I let him be who he is. I give him my opinions, many, many times.”
The fact that she’s been excluded by all the fashion news, and insulted by the rest of the media is all the evidence you need to know about who runs pop culture.
Vanity Fair Mexico Only Cover
So far, Melania has only appeared on Vanity Fair, and only in their Mexican edition in February 2017.
In December 2016, Vogue’s editor-in-chief visited Trump Tower, but the end result was nothing, even if the rumors all said that Anna Wintour would be working with the Trumps for a feature on her magazine.
During Michelle’s reign, Wintour put the Obama FLOTUS on the cover of Vogue three times. In all, Michelle appeared on at least thirty magazine covers in the United States alone, including Time, Glamour and Redbook.
