Trump Rips Fashion Media For Blackballing Melania & Favoring Michelle Obama

Trump and Melania

President Donald Trump slammed the “fake news” media for favoring former First Lady Michelle Obama over his wife and current First Lady Melania Trump.

The President shared a Breitbart article examining why Michelle Obama was on the covers of the fashion magazines 12 times in 8 years while Melania has not been on one since her marriage to Trump.

He also called her “the greatest [first lady] of all time.”

From The Daily Mail: 

Michelle Obama, 56, appeared on a whopping 12 covers during her eight years in the White House while Melania, 50, has not appeared on a single cover through her husband’s four-year term. 

The president on Friday night retweeted a comment from right-wing publication Breitbart that called out the ‘elitist snobs in the fashion press’ with Trump adding that Melania is ‘the greatest of all time’… 

…The Breitbart article detailed Melania’s outfit as she left the White House on Wednesday to spend Christmas with the extended Trump family in Mar-a-Lago. 

She was wearing thigh-high black leather boots by Christian Louboutin, which retail at $2,195, and a wool coat by Azzedine Alaïa which costs $6,610.   

‘The elitist snobs in the fashion press have kept the most elegant First Lady in American history off the covers of their magazines for 4 consecutive years,’ the publication stated. 

Melania’s absence as a cover star has been keenly felt by the President who has often commented that his wife has been overlooked when her predecessor Michelle Obama made frequent appearances.
