When is the liberal media going to bestow the dignity on our Melania (Trump) that she deserves? What class was shown in her latest visit to England.

They put Jackie O on a pedestal, and our Melania owns that pedestal. What other first lady has the fashion, poise and charm that Melania has and shows? Surely not Hillary (Clinton) or Michelle (Obama).

She's getting the same respect as the right wing showed Michelle Obama.


And BTW, I love people from Mexico and everywhere else across the border before someone says something about immigrants, but Melania should speak English very well...Ya think?? So about that Wall??? It's a waste of money.....NEXT......


Okay LLoyd, Are you trying to score a Brownie point by the end of the week? Sorry Brownies...no offense. Surely you Cannot compare Melania " Mrs. Be Best" the Plagiarizer of The WH for having scruples above Hillary, Michelle Obama, and JAckie O. do you? She may dress well but that definitely doesn't cut it. Posing as a centerfold, not learning the English language, utilizing your husband to obtain your parents citizenship; would you consider that accomplishments? I think it's an utter disgrace!! NEXT........

Melania's father was a member of the Russian Communist Party and yet he has been allowed to obtain U.S. citizenship because his daughter is married to the president. As part of the "chain migration" plan he brought along his wife, too. They are now senior citizens and will not be productive members of the workforce nor with they be considered as workers with special skills and talents as Trump has proclaimed will be required. They will be old "dead wood" and should go back to their country of birth and stay there--they do not benefit American society.


It is difficult to have any respect for a person who posed nude for money, plagiarizes speeches, and refuses to perform any of the duties of First Lady. So she dresses well, but she has the money and the time since she doesn't do anything else. Respect must be earned, and there's no evidence that she is willing to earn it.

I forgot about all of the nude centerfolds of Melania all over the internet! Well, that was a "first" for a First Lady, that's for sure! But what really set the bar low was when she incurred all of those expenses in travel, security, etc. by refusing to live in the White House for quite a while--preferring instead to remain in the Golden Palace in NYC, all paid for by our taxes. In my opinion, nude photos and extravagant spending of other people's hard-earned tax dollars is more than "undignified". In her husband's own words: "It's a disgrace."

One does not "bestow dignity". One acts in a dignified manner. I really don't see much bad press coverage of Melania. I suggest that you could show some respect by calling her "First Lady" Melania Trump. grammar, grammar, grammar.


Your obvious, apparent 'dislikes', of many kinds are shining through like flares on a lake surface, Lloyd. What is the point in writing such a nasty letter? Does it make you feel better about yourself? You do know that Melania was not born in America and is an immigrant? You know, those immigrant like people who came to America from somewhere else just to collect welfare (marry all the rich guys, which is probably why you don't have an immigrant wife) that you dislike so much. You do know that, don't you Lloyd? Didn't think so.

Jackie Kennedy and later Onassis, in addition to serving as First Lady, graduated from George Washington University and was well respected in her later years for her work as an editor for major publishing firms and as a preservationist of culture, architecture, art and history. She was pretty and dressed well. In addition to serving as First Lady, Michelle Obama, a graduate of Princeton and Harvard Law School, is a lawyer, university administrator and writer. She worked as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago and as the Vice President for Community and External Affairs of the University of Chicago Medical Center. As First Lady she advocated forhealthy nutrition and exercise for children and their families and she continues to work as an advocate for poverty awareness, education, nutrition, physical activity and healthy eating. Michelle Obama is well known for her polished public speaking and writing. She is pretty and dresses well. In addition to serving as First Lady, Hilary Clinton is an American politician, diplomat, lawyer, writer, and public speaker. She is a graduate of Wellesley College and Yale Law School and is a lawyer. As First Lady she advocated for gender equality and healthcare reform. She was a U.S. Senator from New York 2001-09, the 67th Secretary of State, 2009-13 and was the Democrat Party's nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 election, and the first woman nominated by a major U.S. political party. Hilary Clinton is well known for her polished public speaking and writing. She is pretty and dresses well. In addition to serving as First Lady, Melania Trump was a college dropout and a former fashion model. As First Lady, she advocates against online bullying, which contrasts with her husband's twittering. Melania Trump is not well known for her public speaking and writing. She is pretty and dresses well. Lloyd you may not be aware of this, but any woman can "get by" with being pretty and dressing well, (and the art of putting on make-up helps a lot, too) ,but the women with the most class can do more than just get by if they also have intelligence, an education, leadership skills, a solid career, compassion for others, and excellent communication skills. All of these four women will lose their good looks, of course, as they age, but the first three will leave behind quite a legacy of achievements and accomplishments, while the last one will not. We'll only remember her for being pretty and dressing well . . .


That is the best rebuttal I have ever read! I just feel sorry for Melania and what she has to live with....perhaps after 2020 she will take the money and run.
