Latest Proof Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump Are Snubbed by the Popular Media

'In a normal world, the fashion choices of an extremely stylish first lady would be cover-worthy' — but in today's environment, 'this isn't the case ... and it's deliberate'

First lady Melania Trump is beautiful, stylish, poised, smart and elegant.

First daughter Ivanka Trump is all of the above as well.

So why is it that millions of American women and girls don’t and can’t see more of both these women on the covers of popular magazines today?

We don’t see profiles of them or their latest activities or interests.

We don’t see complimentary fashion spreads about them.

We don’t see compelling interviews with them — or if we do, those articles are few and far between and with limited availability.

Should Trump keep building the wall?

Guess what?

It comes down to political bias — pure and simple.

That won’t surprise people who have been aware of this issue for some time.

Quoting now from a column by Bethany Mandel in Sunday’s New York Post, “Former Conde Nast contributor and freelance writer Stephanie Green told The Post that fashion magazines ‘have become handbooks for the resistance.'”

“She went on, ‘People working in the fashion industry all think the same thing. Anna Wintour [the editor-in-chief of Vogue] has to feed the beast. Unfortunately, all people who think the same way want someone to pick on, and Melania is that person. Every time she steps out not caring [about what they say], it makes them crazier.'”


LifeZette has detailed previously how both Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump have been bullied openly by mainstream media outlets and individuals — or at least very rudely treated by members of the mainstream media.

So this is no surprise to readers of this publication.

But it’s discouraging and disappointing that the snubbing and bullying has occurred to the extent that it has — and that in late September 2019, almost three years after President Donald Trump was elected to the White House, this is still occurring.

After all, ignoring someone — freezing out that person — is a blatant form of bullying as well.

The Mandel column in The Post goes to say that “a staffer at a popular women’s lifestyle brand admitted to me, ‘We are careful to cover the Trumps in a way that doesn’t glamorize them. Not only because of probable backlash on Twitter, but also people on staff have moral issues with [the president], so we don’t want to cover him in that way.”

Yet Michelle Obama, during her tenure, was repeatedly gushed over, fawned over, practically fallen over, by media outlets too numerous to count.

Scores of those magazines featured her on their covers. Women and girls had plenty of material to draw from and learn from about the previous first lady.

Yet that is not the case this time around.

“Covering Melania and Ivanka’s fashion sense would put too good a spin on either of the Trump women,” said Mandel of The Post, “and so, despite the fact audiences crave this content, most media outlets refuse to do so out of (liberal) principle.”

Then she finished with a great point.

“What the media, including these ‘women’s’ publications, continually fail to realize is when you don’t report on the good, you have little moral standing when you report on the bad.”

And let’s see how Melania Trump’s sure-to-be-magnificent decorations at the White House this Christmas season are treated by the mainstream media this year — since for the past several years they’ve been ripped by the press, even though her decorations and her taste have been stunningly beautiful, classy and a wonderful tribute to this country in every way.
