Lara Trump, the daughter-in-law of former President Donald Trump, spoke out this week to slam Vogue Magazine for giving Jill Biden the cover for its August issue yet snubbing Melania Trump during her time as First Lady.
“It’s too bad that we didn’t have a first lady who was a model, who was incredibly fashionable, who they could put on the cover of Vogue when Donald Trump was in office,” Lara lamented, according to The Sun. “Oh wait, we did! It was Melania Trump!”
“I mean, very clearly, Stuart, the reason that this happened was because these people are so obsessed with hating Donald Trump,” she told Fox Business host Stuart Varney. “They are so woke that they could not bring themselves to put an incredibly beautiful woman – I would say the most beautiful first lady we ever had, Melania Trump, and probably rivaling Jackie Kennedy’s fashion sense.”
Not stopping there, Lara went on to say that Melania should have been on the cover because “every first lady” has been featured there.
“Until it was Melania Trump because she’s married to Donald Trump,” Lara argued. “They hate him so much that they decided to snub her.”
“And you know what? I think it really hurt them,” she continued. “People very clearly see their bias, they see where they stand now. And I am going to guess that they have lost quite a bit of readership due to the fact that they have taken such a strong political stand.”
“I hope so,” Varney said.
Back in December, Donald Trump slammed Vogue for not featuring his wife during her time as First Lady, saying, “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.”
Prior to being First Lady, Melania did make the cover of Vogue back in 2005, shortly after marrying Trump. In her interview with Vogue, Jill boasted that her husband is “just a calmer president,” adding that “he lowers the temperature.”
