In just the last month, late-night clown Jimmy Kimmel mocked Trump’s Slovenian accent, CNN contributor April Ryan attacked her as “not culturally American,” former Hillary Clinton spokesman Philippe Reines derided her genteel presence at former first lady Barbara Bush’s funeral, and horror writer Stephen King snickered at her hospitalization this week for kidney surgery.
- Yet, “Melania” is now among the fastest-growing baby names in the nation, according to recently released Social Security data.
- And a new poll by anti-Trump CNN released on Monday showed nearly 6 in 10 Americans have a positive view of FLOTUS. Uh-oh!
Despite Mrs. Trump’s successful career as an internationally photographed model featured in Harper’s Bazaar, GQ, Vanity Fair and Vogue, lib-dominated fashion and celebrity magazines who swooned over Michelle Obama have shunned her.
Melania Trump is not just strikingly beautiful. She is worldly, well-traveled and well-read. She speaks English, French, German, Italian and Serbian, in addition to her native Slovenian — more languages than any other woman who has served as America’s first lady.
Her devotion to son Barron is exemplary and her aversion to limelight and lack of political ambition are refreshing. So too is her ability to refrain from public grievance-mongering over “sacrifices” and trade-offs made between work and home life (looking at you, Hill and ‘Chelle O).
More exposure to this interesting and remarkable woman would mean more familiarity with her. More familiarity with her might mean more popularity. And God forbid there be more Republican women in the public eye who can compete with — and win against — the usual parade of militant kvetchers and moaners who pass themselves off as feminist role models.
