  • First Lady Melania Trump: “My personal experience with COVID-19.”

    10/14/2020 1:09:04 PM PDT · by ransomnote · 80 replies ^ | 10/14/2020 | First Lady Melania Trump
    It was two weeks ago when I received the diagnosis that so many Americans across our country and the world had already received—I tested positive for COVID-19. To make matters worse, my husband, and our nation’s Commander-in-Chief, received the same news. Naturally my mind went immediately to our son. To our great relief he tested negative, but again, as so many parents have thought over the past several months, I couldn’t help but think “what about tomorrow or the next day?”. My fear came true when he was tested again and it came up positive. Luckily he is a strong...

    MELANIA TRUMP has often come under brutal attack from the "biased" art world in the US, especially when it comes to her fashion - something that is inevitably counterproductive for the elevation of art itself, claimed US commentator Jadan Horyn. Speaking to, the US political and cultural commentator claimed Melania Trump has been unfairly treated by the art and fashion world in America as many designers have steered away from collaborating with the First Lady. Mr Horyn claimed the decision of some designers or magazines editors such as Marc Jacobs and Vogue's Editor in Chief Anna Wintour to boycott...
  • Melania Trump – An Apology

    01/25/2019 8:23:38 PM PST · by ameribbean expat · 79 replies
    Following last Saturday’s (Jan 19) Telegraph magazine cover story “The mystery of Melania”, we have been asked to make clear that the article contained a number of false statements which we accept should not have been published. Mrs Trump’s father was not a fearsome presence and did not control the family. Mrs Trump did not leave her Design and Architecture course at University relating to the completion of an exam, as alleged in the article, but rather because she wanted to pursue a successful career as a professional model. Mrs Trump was not struggling in her modelling career before she...
  • The first lady’s glorious hat set the tone and stole the show

    The day began with a hat. It ended with the hat, too. Not literally, but nostalgically. Over the course of 12 hours, no Cézanne at the National Gallery, no forest of cherry blossom branches, no Clinton or Bush china, no goat cheese gâteau, not even Chanel haute couture could compare to that magnificent halo of pure white light perched atop first lady Melania Trump’s perfectly groomed head. Nothing else mattered. There was nothing else. That hat, broad-brimmed with a high, blocked crown, announced the first lady’s presence as boldly and theatrically as a brigade of trumpeters. It was the bright...

    This Is Why Melania Trump Hasn’t Been On Any Magazine Covers Since Becoming First Lady April 18, 2018 Melania Trump is a very different kind of first lady than the American public is used to seeing. The Slovenian native has been married to President Donald Trump since 2005 and has been in the spotlight for nearly two decades. However, she hasn’t really stepped up the plate in her White House role. Though Mrs. Trump has a pretty solid approval rating, and she’s been praised for her fashion sense, she hasn’t done many interviews or donned magazine covers like her predecessors....

    La Times ^ | 2/20/2018 | Robin Abcarian
    America asks a lot of its first couples. Fairly or not, they become national marital role models. We don't really care if they have separate bedrooms, but we do expect them to demonstrate a certain amount of mutual respect and fondness for each other. We like it when they seem to be in love, like George and Laura Bush, or Barack and Michelle Obama. Even Bill and Hillary Clinton, for all their woes, seem to take pleasure in each other's intellects and achievements. We also want them to be devoted parents. We get no good vibes from the Trump marriage....
  • How Melania Describes the State of Their Union

    02/02/2018 6:33:36 AM PST · by Kaslin · 20 replies ^ | February 2, 2018 | Suzanne Fields
    The president gives the State of the Union, and the first lady offers her state of their union. A president and a first lady, a husband and a wife, a father and a mother, a man and a woman reflect different kinds of power, purpose and propensity. Melania Trump puts Frank Sinatra's defiant croon in the present tense: "I'll do it my way." Feminists ought to love her. No one thinks of Trump as an appendage of her man. No one sees her trapped in the role of "wife of," that notorious Washington "title" that once circumscribed the lives...

    New York Times ^ | 27 Jan 18 | Maureen "Not CZJ" Dowd
    Melania has learned a few things from the master. The first lady will never be as brilliant at trolling as her husband. He is an idiot-savant who plays in the roiling ocean of Twitter as naturally as a blubbery-necked sea lion. Only Donald Trump, a Rat Pack relic who spurred the reckoning with his transgressions toward women, could send out a tweet taking credit for the women’s march. But the Slovenian Sphinx has her moments. It started when she seemed to sartorially upbraid Trump for his Billy Bush vulgarities by wearing a pussy-bow blouse to the St. Louis debate. Then,...

    The President isn't the only Trump who enjoys sitting down in front of the boob tube. First Lady Melania Trump is a Shondaland fan, and her favorite television show is "How to Get Away With Murder" on ABC, the New York Times reports. She also likes tuning into "Empire" on Fox, according to the Times's Katie Rogers, who added that in her conversations with Trump, she never once mentioned reality TV. "How to Get Away With Murder" is a popular mystery drama starring Viola Davis that's been a fixture on Shonda Rhimes's "Thank God It's Thursday" line-up since 2014. Trump...

    Washington (CNN) — First lady Melania Trump's popularity continues to climb, according to a new poll out Friday. The first lady's favorability rating now stands at 54%, up from 37% favorable in January 2017, per a Gallup poll conducted last week. Her unfavorable rating is down slightly from 37% to 33%, with 13% having no opinion. Nearly a year into her husband's time in office, the first lady has embraced her role, and though she has maintained an air of mystery through her desire for privacy, she has raised her national profile, moving into the White House with son, Barron,...

    Want to learn English? What better role model than first lady Melania Trump, whose image has been used by a language school in Zagreb, Croatia, on advertising billboards in the city. "Just imagine how far you can go with a little bit of English," the poster from the Americki Institut (American Institute) states, next to an image of Mrs Trump and against a backdrop of the American flag. The Institut published a picture of the poster in a tweet Friday, with the caption: "We entered the billboard game." Ivis Buric, the Institute's communications manager, said Melania Trump, who is from...

    These days, every time I sit down to write about the clothes worn by a political figure, I have to take a deep breath. I wrote this week about the image engineering of the first lady, Melania Trump, as she accompanied her husband on his first trip abroad, and I know pretty soon the hate tweets are going to start flooding in. “You idiot, why are you writing about what they wear!” “How dare you normalize them!” “Oh, right: Clothes are so much more important than the budget, you airhead.” And so on.

    As the overseas debut of President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump draws to a close -- the couple is set to return to Washington this weekend -- there was the usual bluster and bravado from the President. His white-knuckled handshake with France's new president made headlines. The speech to NATO was memorable, as was his brusque, push-aside of the leader of Montenegro to make his way to the front of a pack of world leaders. It was classic, unadulterated Trump, a man the country has come to know for all of the above quirks, mannerisms and machismo. But...

    As she travels with the president this week, the first lady — who flags negative stories about her husband while she's in New York — will be in a position to exert greater influence over his chaotic operation. Melania Trump’s spent her first few months as first lady in New York, only rarely appearing in Washington or speaking at events. Yet friends and aides say she’s keeping a close watch from her gilded apartment in Trump Tower on how her husband is portrayed in the press—and that she’s growing increasingly worried about the anonymous sniping from West Wing staff. Like...

    To dress Melania Trump or not to dress Melania Trump? That seems to be the question—or rather, the ongoing topic of hot debate—for so many designers since Election Day as they figure out how to navigate this new volatile political landscape. And that brings us to the most up-to-date tally of who’s for or against the matter: Christian Siriano is the latest to state on the record that he won’t be designing for the First Lady. “I don’t think I would. I think for a while everyone was trying to figure out what to do,” the designer told Time. “Unfortunately,...

    First Lady Melania Trump handed out awards at the 2017 International Women of Courage awards ceremony on Wednesday at the U.S. Department of State, where she was introduced as a campaigner for the safety and security of women and girls around the world. “The era of allowing brutality against women and children is over,” Trump said to the large crowd of guests gathered to honor 13 women who faced horrific challenges in their lives but persisted to become activists to help others facing a similar plight. “Each one of these heroic women has an extraordinary story of courage, which should...

    More than 108,000 people have signed a petition urging First Lady Melania Trump to move to the White House or pay for security costs at Trump Tower herself. The petition was started after a senior White House aide indicated the president’s wife and son, Barron, will remain in New York until the school year ends. It’ll be delivered to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren if at least 150,000 people sign. “The U.S. taxpayer is paying an exorbitant amount of money to protect the First Lady in Trump Tower, located in New York City,” the petition...

    Earlier this week, the internet was taken by storm after details emerged from a US Weekly report claiming that Melania and Donald Trump kept separate beds. Inside sources told the magazine that the former Slovenian model refused to sleep in the same bed as her husband, even in the rare occasion that she and the president were in the same location. "They have separate beds," one Trump source was quoted in the magazine. "They never spend the night together — ever." A second Trump insider said, "Melania does not keep hidden from everyone around her how miserable she is." The...
