The confines of Trump Tower appear to have shielded first lady Melania Trump from much of the negativity associated with the chaotic infancy of her husband’s presidency.
According to a CNN/ORC poll released Wednesday, a majority of Americans have a favorable view of the first lady, who has largely been out of the public eye since her husband, the least popular president to enter office in modern times, was sworn in on Jan. 20.
Fifty-two percent of Americans said they have a favorable view of Melania Trump. Nearly one-third, 32 percent, have an unfavorable view of her, while 3 percent have never heard of her and 12 percent have no opinion.
Trump has remained in Trump Tower raising her son, Barron, since her husband became president. She has occasionally come to Washington and has spent some weekends at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
That was from Politico, so they had to say some nasty stuff about Donald before they could say anything nice about Melania.
Making haters eat their words is a Trump family specialty.
Ivanka Trump’s clothing line posted record sales shortly after leftists launched a boycott of all Trump merchandise.
Sales of Ivanka’s clothing rocketed 346% from January to February, according to e-commerce aggregator Lyst.
“Since the beginning of February, they were some of the best-performing weeks in the history of the brand,” Abigail Klem, the president of the Ivanka Trump fashion brand, told Refinery29. “For several different retailers, Ivanka Trump was a top performer online. And in some of the categories, it was the [brand’s] best performance ever.”
The record-setting sales are especially significant since they occurred around the time that retail giants Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, T.J. Maxx, Kmart and Marshalls dropped Ivanka’s clothing line after an anti-Trump campaign called “Grab Your Wallet” pressured them to boycott all Trump products.
Love trumps hate.
Even more winning:
A liberal poll that shows most voters approve of the job President Trump is doing (50% to 45%) also shows the public is confident that he will achieve most of his agenda — an agenda they agree with.
The findings in the Politico/Morning Consult poll of 1,992 registered voters should hearten his supporters, and encourage Congress to board the Trump Train.
F**k the haters. This is an open thread.
