Vanity Fair just 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.
The longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone encouraged her husband to make a decision, claiming that every four years he entertains the idea of running. "Either run or don't run," she told him, according to Stone, who is greatly admired among grassroots conservatives.
“She knew it was in his blood,” Stone said, according to Vanity Fair. “He always wanted to run. She is the one who pushed him to run just by saying run or do not run."
At this point, the article seems very factual and interesting. The quote from Roger Stone seems to be fairly reliable since he is a Trump ally and a person who knows the Trump couple very well. But then, the article devolves into quotes from anonymous and unnamed "sources" and wild speculations about the "secret" life of Melania Trump.
"There may never have been a First Lady less prepared for or suited to the role," writes Vanity Fair, quickly changing the tone of the article. 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.
Melania Trump's desire to provide Barron with a good education and relatively 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.
According to the article, "Friends say she is slowly warming to the job. But she has had to state so frequently that she is independent of her husband that it is hard not to see her as distancing herself from his positions, or even from him. That is not to say that she has ever taken any proactive stance against him. An immigrant herself, she never found a voice to stand up for the immigrants that Donald Trump was bashing."
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.
