Melania Trump is arguably the most elegant and beautiful first lady this country has ever had.

She’s devoted herself to working on behalf of children — and she never oversteps her role or gets annoyingly bossy or “political.”

Yet even so, the beautiful and demure Melania Trump is despised and trashed by the mainstream media and Democrats on an almost-daily basis.

The attacks against our amazing first lady are so vile that last year Melania Trump opened up in an interview and revealed that she is one on of the most bullied people in the world.

Please watch:

So, it’ll likely come as no surprise to hear that the new so-called “bipartisan” book on Michelle Obama and Melania Trump is indeed very biased.

The book’s author uses any and all opportunities to subtly and not-so-subtly smear and trash Mrs. Trump, in my view — while fawning and gushing over Michelle Obama.

Here’s how The New York Post explains the situation: “A new book comparing Melania Trump and Michelle Obama has brought out predictable slaps against the current first lady from bullies who seek to attack the president through his family.”

“Pitting two women against each other just never gets old, does it?”

“’Melania & Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era,’” by Tammy R. Vigil, is presented as a mere bipartisan assessment of the public images of both women. But it thinly veils its criticism of one and its admiration of the other. No prizes for guessing who’s who.”

“Vigil, a Boston academic, notes that Melania ‘ranks among the least liked of all modern first ladies, [and her] professional life prepared her to serve more as a visual adornment.'”

The afterword belatedly acknowledges, as The Post also explains, that “pitting the two women against one another is a troublesome (though common) practice.”

“But, hey, if it damages the Trumps, go for it.”

“The Daily News got the message about who is more impressive: ‘Michelle was a polished attorney and huge asset to Barack; Melania, a top model, is nearly invisible,’ goes the headline promoting the book.”

The article in The Post goes on to say that “there is a good reason Melania, 49, might be ‘aloof’ with the media, and that is because the attacks on her are more vicious, personal and unrelenting than any first lady has endured.”
