The mainstream media and the liberal elite have been overcome with an outbreak of Trump Derangement Syndrome over the past year. While the politics of President Donald Trump causes controversy in itself, the last name of Trump should also carry a trigger warning. In addition to attacking the President, his own young son was also attacked by celebrities and other left-wing figures numerous times. His wife, young Barron’s mother, was also subject to attacks.
Now the fake news mainstream media strikes again.
Vanity Fair recently published an article claiming that Melania did not want the role at all and that she didn’t believe her husband would win.
It’s far from the first time that the mainstream media has claimed someone in the Trump family didn’t think the long-shot candidacy of Donald would end up victorious. In these instances however, news sources have relied on anonymous sources that apparently are not reliable.
In a statement responding to the Vanity Fair publication, a spokesman slammed the magazine for being hypocritical. It hits the publication for being tailored towards women, but attacking the First Lady of the United States with low attacks and false assertions. The statement then states Vanity Fair should instead focus on the things she has done as First Lady.
For example, the First Lady previously held a luncheon on international Women’s Day, where she spoke about her personal experience as a female immigrant. She also would discuss the need for gender equality, both domestically and abroad. She has also taken on other projects and causes to help better the world around her.
Is this wrong?
Melania Trump has been attacked by the Daily Mail as well, who published an article claiming she had a racy past by implying she had been involved with an escort service. After filing a defamation lawsuit against the British publication, it retracted the article and backed down from its claims.
Will Vanity Fair stand by their report and stick with these anonymous sources?
It’s hardly the first time that the liberal-leaning publication has attacked a Trump. A couple months ago, an article was published painting a picture of an unhappy President. It claimed that President Trump, apparently becoming increasingly unstable, hates everyone in the White House. The writer claimed his sources included numerous Trump administration advisors and Republican Party operatives.
While there is no question that controversy and personal feuds have haunted the Trump Administration through year one, it’s likely that Vanity Fair upped its hyperbole in order to swipe at a Republican opponent.
The attack on the First Lady is wrong, considering she seldom enters the political arena herself. Instead, she’s chosen to steer clear of the issues the President frequently entangles himself in. It would appear here that her only crime is being married to the Donald. But should she bear the criticism of another man, or should she be treated as a woman independent of her significant other? One would think a liberal publication would agree with the latter statement, though clearly their bias has gotten in the way.
