Melania Trump says Vogue was “biased” for not getting her on the cover when she gave the first post-White House interview
Former First Lady Melania Trump has impeached Fashion Being “biased” for not making her front page during her four years as First Lady.
In her first TV interview since leaving the White House, the former model was asked about the legendary fashion magazine’s decision not to ask her to be a cover star.
Pete Hegseth, President of Fox and Friends, asked her: “How did you endure the constant criticism from the media? Take Vogue for example.
“Five months into Joe Biden’s presidency, Joe Biden is on the cover. Kamala Harris is on the cover before she’s even been sworn in. Hillary Clinton was on the cover when she was First Lady. Michelle has been on the cover three times.
“Yet with your background in business and your background in fashion – and your beauty – never on the cover of Fashion. Why the double standard?”
Ms Trump said she believes the magazine is “biased”.
She said: “You have likes and dislikes. And it’s so obvious and I think Americans – and everyone – sees it.
“It was her choice and I had a lot more important things to do, and I did that in the White House, than being on the cover of Fashion.”
The Independent has called Fashion for comment.
Ms. Trump was caught in a number of controversies during her time in the White House.
In June 2018, amid outcry over her husband’s policy of separating children from their migrant families at the border, Ms Trump was seen wearing a Zara jacket with the caption, “I really don’t care. Do you?” on the back, leading to speculation that she was making a political statement, which she denied.
Her anti-bullying initiative #BeBest was undermined by her husband’s constant bullying of people online.
A leaked recording showed her cursing her role in organizing Christmas decorations at the White House. She was heard saying, “I’m working… my asshole on the Christmas stuff, you know who’s doing the Christmas stuff and decorations? But I have to do it, don’t I?”
