President Trump, White House historian lash out at media mistreatment of Melania Trump

Anyone that has been paying attention over the last several years knows that the news media has been horrible to First Lady Melania Trump — a fact that has not gone unnoticed by the White House.

President Trump lashed out at the hypocritical media complex on Saturday for their unfounded attacks on his wife after White House historian Jennifer Pickens published a devastating takedown of the media’s treatment of Melania Trump this week. 

Melania Trump brought style and grace to the White House despite undeserved attacks on her character but has been consistently snubbed by the news media and the fashion industry.

Breitbart observed on Friday that “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,” to which President Trump replied approvingly: “The greatest of all time. Fake News!”

In an op-ed titled “Melania Trump hasn’t received appreciation she deserves for achievements as first lady,” Pickens wrote that “like so many Republican first ladies, Melania Trump has not received the respect and appreciation she deserved during her tenure. Her many contributions are worth noting.”

Pickens continued:

Every other first lady of the past century has had the advantage of being married to a prominent government official or military leader before entering the White House. But President Trump did not serve in government or the military before being elected to our nation’s highest office. Yet Mrs. Trump entered the White House as first lady with the enthusiasm and energy needed to do well in her new role.

One of the most prominent duties of a first lady today is the task of being America’s hostess. Melania Trump has excelled in this role, despite her lack of experience in wading through the political world.

Mrs. Trump has been able to find the perfect balance between reverence for precedents set by former first ladies, while still respectfully and boldly leaving her own unique mark.

Mrs. Trump’s clear appreciation for the history of the White House and its traditions has been entirely ignored by the mainstream media. For example, she was the first one to open the White House movie theater to the public tours.

“The White House belongs to the people of this country,” Mrs. Trump said. “I believe everyone who takes the time to visit and tour the White House should have as much access to its rich history and wonderful traditions as possible.”

In addition, Mrs. Trump preserved less-glorified parts of the White House like the floors of the East Room. She also oversaw the renovation and upgrading of the bowling alley, Rose Garden and tennis pavilion for future first families to enjoy.

Mrs. Trump even obtained the first piece of art to be permanently displayed by an Asian American artist. But her enhancements went largely unnoticed.

Melania Trump’s “Be Best” campaign — largely overlooked or even maligned by the media — sought to combat opioid abuse in the US, a massive public health crisis that many D.C. politicians are afraid to tackle.

Instead, Melania Trump’s association with Donald Trump automatically made her a target of left-wing ire, despite her efforts to combat a major public health crisis while graciously presiding over the White House.

Pickens concluded:

One can simply look to one of the greatest champions of the office of the first lady, Pat Nixon. Mrs. Nixon may have one of the longest lists of accomplishments as a first lady, yet this amazing woman was often overlooked during her tenure. She is now more appreciated, decades later.

President Richard Nixon said of his wife years after leaving the White House: “If she had been the wife of a liberal, my God, they would have canonized her. But because she was my wife, they had to find ways to knock her, and she never got any credit for the things that she did …. But I must say, one of the reasons that she didn’t receive it, without any question, was that you can be sure that our friends in the media, whoever they may be, were not going to give her any credit if they thought it might help me. I understand that. That’s part of the game — not right, but that’s the way the world, real world is, political world.”

President Nixon’s comment applies just as appropriately to Mrs. Trump. There’s no doubt that her many achievements as an outstanding first lady will be more appreciated in the years ahead.

  1. I don’t want to see one picture of “Dr.” Jill or Kamala. They are nothing compared to Melania. What a disgusting shame that none of the magazines took advantage of the most beautiful, sweet first lady since Jackie. I will never buy or subscribe to any of those magazines again. Plus I will actively encourage all I know to do the same.

    1. I AGREE!!!!!! SHE IS SO GRACEFUL, BEAUTIFUL, CARING, AND REMINDS ME OF JACKIE KENNEDY!!! THE REASON THE PRESS IGNORE HER (IN MY OPINION) IS BECAUSE SHE WAS NOT BORN HERE. FUNNY THING ABOUT THAT IS OBAMA BECAME PRESIDENT AND HE WAS BORN IN KENYA AND BECAME A MUSLIM!!!! MELANIA HAS MORE INTELLIGENCE , INTEGRITY, BEAUTY, AND RESPECTS HER HUSBAND 100%. SHE LOOKS IMPECCABLE ALL THE TIME! SHE ALSO IS A NURTURING MOTHER!

      1. You must be out of your mind. Mrs Trump was no more than a doll displayed in a storefront. She has not done anything for this country. She is no more than an immigrant who is still to offer something to the United States, beside the handling of the 2016 inauguration money.

        1. You must be an evil Liberal to speak this way. Melania has done more for children than any first lady ever did including the unattractive, masculine looking Obama who pretended to care about children’s diet they hated and was eventually thrown out. Melania’s grace and femininity have represented our country in no way other first lady could.

      1. James, My under standing That Jill PhD. had a affair with good ole Joe and left her husband and married Joe. Harris I under stand slept with everyone in town to climb to the top. Thats why I have no respect for either.

      2. That’s funny, James, but you’re right. And honestly, for the positions they hold, neither of the two is very smart.

    2. Very good points. History will judge Trump & his wife to be among the Best-Ever in the WH (including the way he handled the awful Virus and got the very quick Vaccine).

    3. Have you seen the women who edit the fashion magazines? Talk about UGLY!!! It is pure Jealousy, pure JEALOUSY. You can put them in the most expensive cloths & jewelry and it wouldn’t matter., they are not nice or beautiful in any way!!!!!

  2. Melania Trump is the most loving ,caring ,beautiful first lady this white house has ever had ,they need to back off her, she is a remarkable woman !!

      1. Gary,
        I think I love you, you’re said what I’ve been thinking & feeling for the entire 8 bloody years . . . however, whenever any Obama topics come up in a conversation I ALWAYS refer to his wife as “the thing” he’s married to.
        Hope you had a great Christmas!

  3. I CAN SAY FOR SURE THAT JEALOUSY IS ONE HORRIBLE DISEASE AND THE SICK INTHE HEAD LEFT WING SOCIETY IS FILLED AND RUNNING OVER WITH IT. SO VERY SAD THERE IS NOT A TREATMENT FOR THIS UGLY DISEASE THAT ANY OF THEM HAVE BEEN WILLING TO TAKE PART IN.

  4. The Billionaires that support and run the MSM has disrespected the whole Trump Family since he announced his Candidacy! Malania is the most beautiful , best dressed, posed and intelligent First lady we’ve had since Jackie Kennedy, they should be ashamed of themselves for treating her and their Family the way they have. I know I refuse to watch, or buy anything the MSM touches because of it

  5. THE COMMUNIST LEFTIST MEDIA – AKA CNN, MSNBC, NBC, CBS ETC., ETC. ETC IS. THEY ARE ALL “LEFT OF GOD”, AKA AGNOSTICS, AETHEISTS, ETC. THEY WILL CONTINUE TO THRIVE, WILL DENOUNCE EVERYTHING AND ANYTING GOOD . . . TO THEM “EVIL” IS GOOD AND HATE IS A PART OF THAT EVIL. EVIL IS NOT SOMETHING “NEW” IT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. IT IS SAD THAT THEY CHOOSE THAT WAY TO LIVE, EAT AND BREATH. THEY, W/O KNOWING, ARE MISSING A LARGE PORTION OF THEIR LIVES BY “EVIL” AND THE REALLY SADDEST OF ALL . . . THEY WILL ASK THEMSELVES THE QUESTION . . . “WHY”? THEY WILL NEVER GET AN ANSWER AND WILL DIE W/O KNOWING WHY! EVIL WILL GO WITH THEM TO THE GRAVE!

    1. Yes! And beyond the grave. if you know what I mean! There is a judgment day coming! They will be judged by the Almighty! Everything is shaping up to the end; when all their evil deeds will be made known. They will face the Lord himself!

  6. First Lady Melania Trump is one of the finest First Ladies that the USA has had. She is not only intelligent and lovely, she is a worker who has performed many tasks in her position as First Lady. How many first ladies went to sites of hurricane destruction to stand and help with various tasks, how many took the time to visit children, and how many visited Arlington the cemetery? She has done much more but this is not about what she has done, it is about her grace, kindness, and work for the American people. Being a First Lady is not a simple job, it is work. Thank you First Lady Melania Trump for your kindness and the work you have put in on this job as First Lady.

      1. I guess we will have to give Melania praise and recognize her accomplishments since the “maligned” press and DEM politicians want to hate EVERYTHING GOOD IN OUR COUNTRY! Let them move to CHINA! I wonder what “social rating” they will get? Since the Communist DEMS can’t come up with anything original of their own, the next thing will be “social ranking” newly implemented in Communist China, but a system long a part of North Korea’s Social Control Programs. COMING NEXT FROM THE BIDEN ADMINISTRATION, UNLESS THEY ALREADY HAVE IT! Start and online survey so we can recognize her efforts!

  7. Melania is a beautiful, educated, loving woman. She deserved better than she got from the fake news. As a person who has had first hand knowledge how the fake news works not only for the rich and famous but on the little people who are hurt by the people who are able to pay to heave their version of a story (actually a lie). We need to get rid of the fake news totally in TV, Newspapers and Radio.

  8. She is the most BEAUTIFUL CARING GIVING FIRST LADY WE HAVE EVER HAD. THE MORE SHE DOES IT FALLS ON DEAF EARS. I HOPE ALL OF THEM BURN IN HELL. SHE IS BRILLIANT AND EVERY WORD THAT EXPLAINS HER WOULD TAKE ME HOURS TO WRITE. AMERICAN LOVE THIS WOMAN. SHE PUTS ALL OF YOU TO SHAME. YOU SHOULD ALL BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. LOVE OUR FIRST LADY 🌹🎉💞🤗✝️💟🥰👍❤️🙏🙏🙏🎈🎈🎈

  9. Wasn’t it one of The View vixens who remarked after Mrs. Trump made a short speech, “I guess she still hasn’t learned to speak English!” Guess she was too busy learning all six languages she’s fluent in, Joy-less.

  10. Melania Trump does not need the covers of the fake news. The world will always remember her as a beautiful, kind, intelligent woman that performed the task of First Lady with style, beauty, and caring. She has exceeded all of those before her including Jackie who was idealized.

  11. If they would have treated the tranny coon the way they treat Melanie, press Corp wouldn’t have been aloud near the Oval Office & their still cleaning the stains off the floor gonzo left behind…

    1. I herd they had to fumigate the white house for a week after the Obama’s left the white house along with replacing damaged furniture ….. sad.

  12. This just shows how vengeful and vicious these democrats are they also excel in bashing the republican presidents and the first lady, but attack anyone who shows any animosity and dislike towards a democratic first lady of family then the force of evil will descend upon them with full anger something democrats are know for. No attacks were ever aimed at the Obama girls but some democrat followers with mental health issues proudly displayed their hatred toward president Trumps son Baron calling him names and making up from their own warped minds all kinds of issues he may be having. IF biden get’s in we too can then have a field day with HIS family like democrats had with president Trumps family …… we COULD but we’re not mentally challenged the way the democrats are and never have been, when Obama was president republicans just sat out the horrible eight years we put up with the worst president in modern history but when Trump was elected president the democrats showed their hatred by attacking all Trump supporters all dressed in black and armed with baseball bats attacked and injured Trump supporters and wearing masks like the cowards they are even fire bombed a limousine all caught on news videos and weeks of riots that followed and I’m waiting for our reelection of president Trump this time republicans will be ready. TRUMP WON THE ELECTION PERIOD.

  13. Anybody who has never seen or heard about Mrs. Melania Trump is either jealous, playing deaf, blind & dumb and obviously jealous of her. She is one of the most beautiful, unique, intelligent and elegant First Ladies of the United States of America. Want to know why? Because the The Lady is a TRUMP!!!!*** Four More Years of MAGA!!!!!! ++++

  14. The disgrace this nations media has displayed against Melania Trump during her term as First Lady is a huge black mark on the integrity of their profession. It is sad that they willingly embraced such hatred and created such division amongst Americans. It has not gone unnoticed and because of this many former subscribers are no longer viewing them in a favorable light. We have been fortunate to have such a beautiful and educated woman (both on the outside and the inside) as our nation’s First Lady. Thank you Melania Trump for the grace and strength you have brought in your position.

  15. Melanie Trump is truly one of the best First Ladies America has ever had! Just look at all she has done in decorating the White House for all 4 Christmas . Look at what she has meant to children and veterans! Thank you for all you have meant to all America!

  16. The First Lady is indeed the First Lady. It is truly unfortunate that she has been so shabbily treated treated by the fashion industry and the MSM. I would suggest, however, that being rejected by those cretins is in fact a badge of honor and I sincerely hope she can come to view it as such. Friendship with the world is enmity with God. I pray for the very best for the First Lady, the President and their entire family. God Bless America.

  17. Melania needs no acolytes from the media. She is excellence personified in everything she does. Beautiful inside and out, gentle and loving but fights like a big cat when threatened, without vice and I shall always hear her words to the children as if she spoke them to me “Be Best!” and she behaved-lived what she spoke and whispered them in the ears of babies and toddlers as she pet and snuggled them.
    Then Melania took care of Americans and finally her husband and children. We are blessed for having her. I have never known a woman I admire more than Melania-in every way. To remember her in honor remember “Just be BEST!”
    Melania you shine brighter than any camera from the magazines and press could ever represent you-you broke their cameras so stunning is your beauty, carriage, and gentleness. You are the BEST of America!

  18. I could just CRY for the way Our First Lady has ben treated…..She is soo beautiful…!!! But you know what both the Pres and Her have a amazing strength and courage…!!! There are few people who could have taken what The First Family has taken….!!! My Love and blessings go with them…Your right they are the best we have ever had…Even the Trump Children are all good looking and very smart…and Donald is very proud of them…God Bless You Trump Family….

  19. This is the reason I do not buy People, or any of the other so called “fasion” mags. They will put an ugly face of Michelle OBummer on the cover, but not a beautiful face like Melania. Stop buying them and put them out of business. I have.

  20. The previous compliments pertaining to Melania Trump as First Lady can hardly be improved upon. She has been amazing in her work with the White House renovations and Christmas decor. I lived in the Kennedy era and as a young woman noticed the many publications featuring the First Lady of that time. Mrs.Trump ranks up with Mrs Kennedy in intelligence, grace and style. Perhaps more so in that she fluently speaks six languages as no other first lady has ever done. Well done, Mrs Trump! We wish to see four more years of your wonderful influence in the People’s House !

  21. Liberals will always be liberals without any sense of human kindness. But, here is a cold hard fact they know of but will never comment about. While Jill Biden was balling the brains out of numbnuts Joe for about a year and a half,
    she was still married to her first husband. And Kamala Harris used to live with a MARRIED man for
    approximately 2 years. Just think about this: For the first time in history there will be 2 whores occupying our White House. MELANIA, YOU WERE AND, HOPEFULLY, WILL BE IN THE AGAIN IN THE FUTURE OUR FINEST FIRST LADY EVER!!

  22. The media should be filled with remorse at the treatment they have dealt this woman. She has done nothing to deserve to be treated and humiliated as they have done to her. So very disrespectful.

    Old lady Biden best keep her mug to herself as well as Kamala the HO

  23. Beauty, elegance, grace and intelligence is a collective word for our first lady, Melania Trump.
    It is a pity that the hateful media deprived the American citizen of such a marvel as Melania.
    She will be remembered as the greatest First Lady in the history of First Lady’s.
    She will be missed terribly.

  24. She is the most beautiful First Lady, smart no one can take that away from her. They are just jealous. President trump was the best President we had. God bless the Trump family.

  25. I believe that America OWES the Trumps a THIRD term, since the first was negated by the horrible un-American treatment from the Democrats and establishmernt Republicans as well, DESPITE which, DJT STILL achieved more than ANY other President in history in his first term. He deserves two DECENT terms, as ANY President in the office does, who ran for a second term and won, as DJT did by a LANDSLIDE. This FRAUD must be prosecuted and REMOVED permanently, all who were involved ARE traitors and need the appropriate treatment: firing squads or gibbets.

  26. Trusting to make the right decisions can be tough. It takes years to build confidence. It doesnt really just happen if you know what I mean.
