Earlier this year, Vanity Fair omitted First Lady Melania Trump from its annual International Best Dressed list, which included former FLOTUS Michelle Obama for some reason. Now, the fashion magazine is after Mrs. Trump again with claims that she never wanted to be first lady.
Writer Sarah Ellison went “inside Melania Trump’s secretive East Wing” and through inside “sources,” discovered she was thrust “into a role she had never sought.”
But those claims were quickly countered by FLOTUS’s director of communications, Stephanie Grisham, who chided the magazine for printing such unsubstantiated rubbish:
“Once again part of the liberal media, this time Vanity Fair, has written a story riddled with unnamed sources and false assertions. As a magazine tailored to women it is shameful that they continue to write salacious and false stories meant to demean Mrs. Trump, rather than focus on her positive work as First Lady as a supportive wife and mother.”
President Trump also defended his wife on Twitter: “Melania, our great and very hard working First Lady, who truly loves what she is doing, always thought that ‘if you run, you will win.’ She would tell everyone that, ‘no doubt, he will win.’ I also felt I would win (or I would not have run) — and Country is doing great!”
Vanity Fair’s executive director Beth Kseniak stated, “We stand by Sarah’s story.” No surprises there.
Well, we stand by a first lady who is saving tax dollars by cutting back on the excesses of the previous occupant by reducing needless staff. Somehow that’s viewed as someone not into her role. Plus, she looks quite happy getting the White House ready for Christmas and accepting hugs from all the children who are visiting. Not tired of all this winning.
