Melania ‘just a former model,’ too dumb to make staff decisions, CNN panel implies in head-spinning segment
When in business to subvert the President of the United States, one must seize on any and all opportunities and that’s just what occurred Tuesday when CNN’s Jake Tapper and a merry band of Trump-bashers went into full pearl-clutching mode after first lady Melania Trump’s office released a public statement saying deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel “no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.”
After all, a “former model” can’t possible hold an opinion that’s substantive.
Looking past the fact that Tapper and his panel have no idea of the backstory at play here, it’s not like first ladies don’t wield significant influence. Nancy Reagan? Hillary Clinton? The only difference is that when it’s a Democrat, the first lady is propped up in the media as a strong, independent woman.
