It was just reported by The Hill that Melania Trump just responded to a report which claimed without evidence that Melania Trump doesn't like being the First Lady of the United States. The report, which Melania claims is "salacious and false," came from Vanity Fair.
“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,” said Melania's spokesperson, according to The Hill.
The spokesperson then added, "As has been stated on the record many times before, she is honored by her role."
Vanity Fair recently issued an article blasting Melania Trump as First Lady. The liberal website claims that according to an unnamed "source" and wild speculations by author Sarah Ellison, Melania secretly doesn't like being First Lady and has done a very lackluster job.
"There may never have been a First Lady less prepared for or suited to the role," wrote Vanity Fair. Then the website quotes an "anonymous friend" of Donald Trump.
"This isn’t something she wanted and it isn’t something he ever thought he’d win," said the supposed friend. "She didn’t want this come hell or high water. I don’t think she thought it was going to happen.”
The article attempts to display Melania as both unfit to be First Lady and bad at the role. First, they claim that most of her life "remains in the shadows." They also try to display her recent effort to cut costs and increase efficiency in the East Wing as evidence that she doesn't care very much about her job, that she is "unusual," and that she has a very "sparsely inhabited" East Wing which she doesn't want to manage.
Next, they depict Melania Trump's desire to provide Barron with a good education and normal childhood by waiting until he was finished with school to move the family into the White House is also interpreted by Vanity Fair as evidence that she is unfit and unhappy in her role as First Lady.
Vanity Fair then claims that "whatever her strengths, Melania is not a skilled communicator," citing that "her English is imperfect" and that she is "hardly a fixture." The issues that she chose to champion, especially cyberbullying, are "ironic" because her husband is supposedly a "bully" himself.
The hit piece then claims that Melania apparently wants to distance herself from both her husband and his political positions. But at the same time, they say, Melania has never taken proactive stances against her husband, particularly on the issue of immigration, which they assume without evidence she must disagree with.
Once it seems as though the hit piece couldn't get any worse, Vanity Fair then makes the unproven claim that Melania Trump was secretly thinking about divorcing her husband in the aftermath of the Billy Bush tape and then gives coverage to the rumor that Melania Trump has been replaced with a body double.
