Melania-Hate Is Caused By TDS

One of the more bizarre developments in the past 4 years has been the poisonous hatred spewed for a First Lady who has done nothing to deserve it. Miranda Devine at the NY Post nails it:

A new book comparing Melania Trump and Michelle Obama has brought out predictable slaps against the current first lady from bullies who seek to attack the president through his family.

Pitting two women against each other just never gets old, does it?

“Melania & Michelle: First Ladies in a New Era,” by Tammy R. Vigil, is presented as a mere bipartisan assessment of the public images of both women.

But it thinly veils its criticism of one and its admiration of the other. No prizes for guessing who’s who.

Vigil, a Boston academic, notes that Melania “ranks among the least liked of all modern first ladies, [and her] professional life prepared her to serve more as a visual adornment.”

The afterword belatedly acknowledges that “pitting the two women against one another is a troublesome (though common) practice.”

But, hey, if it damages the Trumps, go for it.

The Daily News got the message about who is more impressive: “Michelle was a polished attorney and huge asset to Barack; Melania, a top model, is nearly invisible,” goes the headline promoting the book.

Vigil declares that Melania’s “difficulties” are exacerbated because she “followed a popular and competent first lady” in Michelle Obama.

After writing an entire book comparing the two first ladies — one only halfway through her first term with a wildly hostile media and the other who completed two terms — Vigil concedes that “directly contrasting these women is fraught with challenges.”

No kidding.

There is a good reason Melania, 49, might be “aloof” with the media, and that is because the attacks on her are more vicious, personal and unrelenting than any first lady has endured.

Whatever you think of her husband, you can’t say she has behaved with anything but dignity in her role, despite ugly provocations, which include attacks on her young son, Barron.

When it comes to the former Ms. Knauss, there are no boundaries to bullying at all.

Her Christmas decorations have been pilloried, her accent mocked. She has been depicted as a victim of domestic abuse.

When she visited a hospital after the El Paso massacre and cradled an orphaned baby with a smile, she was slammed for insensitivity.

When she recited the Lord’s Prayer at one of Trump’s rallies, she was branded a “whore.”

Just last week, an entire story ran in Newsweek claiming President Trump had called her to his side like a dog, with three taps on his thigh.

Clearly, since the president has proven impervious to abuse, his enemies want to get at him through his wife.

Melania is right to regard herself as one of the “most bullied people in the world,” as she once told CNN.

There is nothing she can do right in the eyes of media gatekeepers.

Despite her exquisite style and promotion of American brands, she has been snubbed by fashion’s elite. Vogue editor Anna Wintour recently dissed her by pointedly praising Michelle Obama’s style when asked about Melania.

Does she deserve no respect because of the man she married?

The Left hates Melania Trump for several reasons, with the fact that she is married to President Donald Trump probably the chief reason. But they also hate her because she gives proof to a lie they have been telling us for the past decade.

This is what a “fashion icon” looks like.

Michelle Obama is not competent, accomplished, nor popular. She most especially is not a fashion icon, unless she is an icon for what not to wear. But the media have been insisting otherwise. I have to wonder, are they trying to convince us, or themselves?

Yes, Michelle Obama went to an Ivy League school for her undergrad degree (Sociology, with a minor in African-American Studies) and another for her law degree. But she didn’t exactly set the world on fire as a lawyer. Wikipedia:

Following law school, Obama became an associate at the Chicago office of the law firm Sidley & Austin, where she met her future husband Barack. At the firm, she worked on marketing and intellectual property law.[4] She continues to hold her law license, but as she no longer needs it for her work, she has kept it on a voluntary inactive status since 1993.[74][75]

In 1991, she held public sector positions in the Chicago city government as an Assistant to the Mayor, and as Assistant Commissioner of Planning and Development. In 1993, she became Executive Director for the Chicago office of Public Allies, a non-profit organization encouraging young people to work on social issues in nonprofit groups and government agencies.[26] She worked there nearly four years and set fundraising records for the organization that still stood 12 years after she left.[20] Obama later said that she had never been happier in her life prior to working “to build Public Allies”.[76]

In 1996, Obama served as the Associate Dean of Student Services at the University of Chicago, where she developed the University’s Community Service Center.[77] In 2002, she began working for the University of Chicago Hospitals, first as executive director for community affairs and, beginning May 2005, as Vice President for Community and External Affairs.[78]

She continued to hold the University of Chicago Hospitals position during the primary campaign of 2008, but cut back to part-time in order to spend time with her daughters as well as work for her husband’s election.[79] She subsequently took a leave of absence from her job.[80]

According to the couple’s 2006 income tax return, her salary was $273,618 from the University of Chicago Hospitals, while her husband had a salary of $157,082 from the United States Senate. The Obamas’ total income was $991,296, which included $51,200 she earned as a member of the board of directors of TreeHouse Foods, and investments and royalties from his books.[81]

Obama served as a salaried board member of TreeHouse Foods, Inc. (NYSE: THS),[82] a major Wal-Mart supplier from shortly after her husband was seated in the Senate until she cut ties shortly after her husband announced his candidacy for the presidency; he criticized Wal-Mart labor policies at an AFL-CIO forum in Trenton, New Jersey, on May 14, 2007.[83] She also served on the board of directors of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs.

I have news for you: Nobody goes to law school so they can specialize in intellectual property.

Read between the lines and you see a young female attorney who, after working a few years as a lowly associate in a boring area of law, left the legal field for a succession of politically-connected jobs. How do I know the jobs were politically connected?

She worked in Chicago. Everything in Chicago is politically-connected. If you want a job with the city or county government it helps to have relatives and/or friends on the inside. Oh, you can get hired for lower-level jobs strictly on merit, but unless you want to stay at the bottom you better start making the right kind of friends. And you better pay your union dues without complaining. You also better register as a Democrat.

That’s for any job. If you want to get a job as Assistant to the Mayor of Chicago you’ll have to be sleeping with the mayor or be sleeping with (or the spawn of) someone the mayor considers important. Barack was not yet a state senator at that point, but he was seen as a rising star and he had made some important friends. Friends with the pull to get him a sinecure at the UofC law school. Friends who got him a pretty sweet book deal. Friends who got him appointed to run the Democrat voter registration program for all of Illinois. Friends who got him appointed to a few boards.

If you want to bribe some government official these days you can’t just hand him a bag of cash.
What you can do is either hire his wife or girlfriend (or both) or get her hired at some cushy job they mostly won’t even have to show up for. Michelle’s job at the hospital? It was created for her when Barack became a US Senator. And after she quit, they eliminated the position.

It was mostly good times for Michelle until Barack got to Washington D.C. She had two girls, but she had to go the test tube route because Barack couldn’t or wouldn’t knock her up the old fashioned way. And Barack’s political aspirations required her to rub elbows with rich white people, which reminded her of when she went to college. But the money was good, and they spent it as fast as they made it.

Nobody cares about the wife of a state senator. We don’t usually care much about the wife of a Senator either. But we care about First Ladies, and we want to know a little bit about any potential First Lady. And that is why Barack Obama had a problem.

When Barack arrived in Chicago’s South Side he was not welcomed with open arms by the black residents. They were leery of him because he was a fish out of water in that place. He’s not “black,” he’s biracial, and he was raised a long way from a black inner-city neighborhood. His father was African, but from a different part of Africa than the part where most slaves were taken from. He was raised in Hawaii and Indonesia, and he went to a fancy prep school. Worst of all, he only dated white women.

Barack was advised to join a black church to help establish his bona fides, so he joined Trinity UCC and made Rev. Jeremiah Wright his mentor. But Barack’s political ambitions required him to get married to a black woman. (Some people believe he needed a beard as well.) He thought Michelle Robinson was perfect. She was a lawyer who had authentic roots in Chicago’s black community. And she was pushing 30 without even a serious boyfriend. So he married her.

Ten years later his advisors were telling him the bad news: voters didn’t like her. She was a large, angry, black woman. She not only has Resting Bitch Face, she has a scowl that would make a Marine flinch. She was in desperate need of a makeover. Some people claim she had some “work done” but she definitely had her personality adjusted. She learned how to project warmth and friendliness. Most of all, she trained herself to smile in public.

Back in 2007, the Obama campaign was reluctant to put Michelle in the spotlight. She was mostly relegated to campaigning in black churches. But when Obama became the frontrunner she started to get more attention. That is when the media came to the rescue. First of all, they circled their wagons and declared that any criticism of Michelle Obama was racist. Then they also started pushing the line about her being an accomplished attorney, a working mom, and a beauty queen.

The fashion industry joined in. Michelle became a regular on the cover of fashion magazines. They gushed about her toned arms and ignored her humongous derriere. And they kept it up for over a decade. Then Karma struck.

Melania Trump is a literal beauty queen. She is a former supermodel. She speaks 5 or 6 languages and exudes grace, elegance, and class. She is so regal in her manner and bearing that she makes Cersei Lannister look like a trailer trash hillbilly. My favorite moment from Trump’s inauguration was Bill Clinton getting the stink-eye from Hillary while he ogled Melania.

If you are a woman who is insecure about her appearance the last place you want to be is standing next to Melania Trump. And if you are a feminist or a Leftist Obama fanboi, you hate Melania Trump because she is beautiful.

    FWIW, report on live sighting of RBG out in the wild. Al, the wife, Mary, the MIL, and I were running late to the “event” and the roads were packed with very slowly moving traffic for miles. (The arena, capacity of 18,000 had been sold out for weeks). We gave up driving, just parked on a side street and walked 1 1/2 miles. By “show time” the arena was 85-90% full, I suspect that a few thousand people gave up with the traffic or were allowed entrance after the start time. Bill Clinton gave a 20 minute intro. (he looked and sounded quite good). RBG looked surprisingly good for an 86 year old with three recent, major health issues and there is nothing wrong with her brain. The event was broadcast by C-Span and here is a replay for those interested. Interesting history.

    • SHV says:

      “not allowed entrance”

    • lateblum says:

      I’ve been thinking of you and Al and MIL going to this event. I’d have loved to have been there. Thanks for thinking of us.

      • SHV says:

        The C-Span replay does a good job of covering the event. It was an odd “historical” event, the concession were open so people were well supplied with hot dogs, pizza, fried chicken and beer!!

        Seems like RBG is a cult figure for older second wave feminists who lived the experience the of workplace and other discrimination that RBG litigated. Mary loves RBG, read her bios and watched the RBG movies several times and her politic are somewhat to the right of Atilla the Hun. It’s interesting that all of the biographical movies, books, etc. about RBG concentrate on her legal work prior to becoming a judge. Seems to me she has had very little impact with her 13 years on the D.C. circuit and later SCOTUS. It was also obvious from her stories that she really misses Scalia, a lot!

  6. Ann says:

    I know it says “voluntarily inactive”, but I swear just a few years ago it did not have that status. Either I am mis-remembering or something hinkey went and she now has a new designation (it could be both).

    Assuming she really did voluntarily give up her license after four years, the question is “for what?” She married Barack in 1992, gave up her license in 1993, and didn’t have kids until 1998.

    For the attorneys here – does “voluntarily inactive” cover negotiated disciplinary actions too? Or just “nawwww I don’t need no stinkin’ law license” actions?

    Obama is listed as retired (2008).

    • lyn says:

      Yeah, Obama retired to the presidency in 2008 and now he’s cashing in on it. People who are intelligent wouldn’t give up their law licenses.

    • elliesmom says:

      Keeping a professional license usually requires paying ongoing fees. In the income bracket the Obamas were in at the time, that still would have been pocket change to them.

      • lyn says:

        Wouldn’t they also have to take continuing education classes to maintain the license?

        • Angie says:

          Usually not –you can keep your license active but file paperwork each year attesting that you arent practicing, so the CLE (Continuing Legal Education) requirements are waived.

          You still pay your bar dues each year that way but don’t have to take the CLEs.

          It’s very weird,.imo, for any attorney to put themselves on voluntary inactive status.

    • Mt.Laurel says:

      I live in a land where you cannot toss a spitball without hitting a large flock of lawyers. I know of no one, working or retired, who has voluntarily given up their license at such a young age regardless of working status/family/type of work/whatever. Most who do are in the upper age brackets. Keeping it up to date, like many other professions that require a license, gives a person a path for future employment should their current situation change. Also enables them to do specialty volunteer work, work as an ad hoc consultant, . . .

    • SHV says:

      “For the attorneys here – does “voluntarily inactive” cover negotiated disciplinary actions too? Or just “nawwww I don’t need no stinkin’ law license” actions?”
      That reminded me that years ago when Warren was first running for Senate, The Boston Herald(?) was running stories on issues with Warrens law licenses, or lack of, and that she has voluntarily surrendered her NJ(?), PA(?) law license and that those records were therefore sealed and not available for FOIA requests. Good way to hide problems, along with never applying for a Mass. license which would have required a lot of background information.

  7. swanspirit says:

    I will never forgive the media, Hollywood, the “fashion industry” or anyone else, for the way they treat Melania. She is so far above, and too good for them. They are trash, and meaningless.

    And I remember quite vividly, the angry ignorant Mooch. The one who said
    “If you can’t run your own house, you can’t run the White House”
    What a nasty mess she was, and still is.

    The pre- makeover Mooch.

    • swanspirit says:

      Damn,WRONG VIDEO!! That video is one of Whoops, I might have said something halfway right about blacklisting people, by I probably only said it because it involves Hollywood people. So sorry. Here is the Mooch video

      • DeniseVB says:

        I enjoyed both videos 🙂 Been following that Messing and McCormack mess. They just sound so ignorant and clueless. Gads, I agree with Whoopi and Joy. That harpy on Joy’s left had her Dem talking points ready…..”it’s public information, so what?”. And Joy took her down a notch.

        I’ve never liked Michelle and I still don’t. Her book’s been in the top 5 best sellers since last Nov?? I still haven’t read it, maybe by the time it’s the only book I haven’t read, I have dozens of those, lol.

    • Myiq2xu™ says:

      The California Posse Comitatus Act of 1872 was used in the country’s early days, notably as a means of enforcement to help catch runaway slaves.

      California was always a free state. Slavery was outlawed in the United States by the 13th Amendment in 1865.

  11. Woke Lola says:

    I was never really a fan of all the Michelle-bashing I saw on the right and right-leaning sites, including this one. I don’t think a woman’s appearance is fair game ever. I was never bothered by critiques of actions or statements, and Michelle Obama earned hers early with that “proud of my country for the first time” shite. She learned well with all her advisors in the White House and came out it with some pretty good skills. I thought she was a good role model for all black women in general, and a great parental model for poor black mothers in particular. She and Barack single-handedly resurrected marriage in the black community, which was no small feat.

    I don’t really give any shits about the details of their marriage–whatever works for them. I despise him still because he’s fake as fake can be, a liar, and it’s obvious to anyone paying attention who is objective and fact-based. He did a lot of good for the black community in terms of modeling, but his policies were very bad for America in general, including black people, and he was not nearly as articulate as Harry Reid said he was (you didn’t build that + all the debate performances in 2012).

    I love Melania for her accomplishments, values, beauty, class, warmth, and the fact that she will gut a bitch on the sly, as we saw here:

    • Woke Lola says:

      Well, the edit pulled my image, so here it is:


    • DeniseVB says:

      Not a fan of body shaming either, but the media pushed that reaction on us by declaring Michelle the next JackieO of style, class and impeccable fashion sense. MO had none of that, her official and glam photos were air brushed and photo shopped, the media did her no favors. Maybe if the Obamas retired quietly and did some humanitarian work that would have benefited people other than themselves, but they won’t go away !

      • Angie says:

        I didn’t care about her looks until the media started telling me if I didn’t think she was so beautiful, elegant etc (which she isn’t) then I was racist.

        Fuck that shit.

        Same kind of crap they push with transgenders now –if I don’t think Caitlyn (fka Bruce) Jenner is a beautiful, brave *woman* then I’m transphobic.

        Again, fuck that shit. Adults, including Caitlyn fka Bruce can live however they want. I don’t care. But I don’t have to change my thinking or beliefs to suit *their* reality.

        • DeniseVB says:

        • Mothy67 says:

          Your comment reminds me of the reviews. For Chapelle’s show. The critics pretty much said WE get to tell you what is funny. Just because we once thought something humorous does not mean you are still allowed to without our permission.

        • Woke Lola says:

          I’m not tolerating that shit either, Angie. I’m on record as resisting the over use of the accusations of racism.

          Denise, I agree there were targeted media campaigns like that, but I just didn’t respond. First ladies always get used by the media, and judged harshly, but I also agree with the klown that Republican are a) considered lower-hanging fruit by the media in general, and that b ) Melania has faced a disproportionate amount of hatred due to TDS.

          Y’all don’t have to agree with me about the hands off approach to critiquing FL. We’ve known each other long enough to have different opinions and still love and respect each other.

          I better end this now as we’re getting random 30-second losses of power now, and I expect that to continue and mess with my router. Plus I’m hung over after uncustomarily imbibing about 10 shots of sweet tea whiskey and lemonade vodka last night. Firefly is evil, delicious shit. Never. Again. Have a good night y’all!

    • Constance says:

      Still Michelle wore some outfits that just were awful and indicate she was a fashion victim. That is part of why the fashionistas liked her, she willing wore God awful bad art projects someone called fashion with no regard to how bad she looked.

      • swanspirit says:

        I still remember, but cannot find anywhere, that interview Mooch did with Larry King, where she made that not veiled threat, toward Hillary, during the 2008 primary. She made sure, that people knew, that black voters would stay home, if Hillary was the nominee. To paraphrase, she said she just wasn’t sure she could bring herself to vote for Hillary, as the nominee.
        And not long after that, any black support that Hillary had, disappeared. She is a mean, manipulative, bitch, and I have no problem calling her out. And that includes pretending to be some fashion icon. She’s horrible.
        How much more human would she have been, to have been genuine, but she doesn’t have a genuine bone in her body.

        • DeniseVB says:

          My major problem with MO was her “beauty” did not run deep. She spit out some awful things between 2007-2017. I think it was her final digs against the Trumps at the Inauguration that pissed me off more than anything. ( “worst day of muh life” something like that).

      • DeniseVB says:

        “Are there no mirrors in the White House between Michelle’s closet and the front door?” was my favorite critique from her non-fans. She had 22 assistants and I don’t think she listened to any of them. Melania has 4.

I didn’t learn dirty tricks, my parents didn’t play dirty politics. I’m certain they would be appalled by what has happened. They wouldn’t support PDJT, but they would not support the constant crap coming from the left.

      Don’t cults provide low protein diets to make members more pliable? Pup is vegetarian and athletic. Providing complete proteins is work and much more expensive.

      Beef stew , chicken soup, and chili provide nutritious meals on the cheap. I wish welfare offices gave away crock pots with food stamps. Cooking for a vegetarian growing child is expensive and so much work. I am always trying to control carbs with her diet and tofu is disgusting. Fake meat products are laden with salt and expensive.
      They are going after fossil fuels hard. How does kamala think vegetables get to a grocery store? How does a store maintain it’s temperature so food doesn’t rot. Food costs would go through the roof under a green new deal and poor people would suffer disproportionately.

        That’s so true about vegetarian cooking. The fake meat products taste awful. Beyond Meat uses coconut oil that’s high in saturated fat.

      That is their mind set. Whatever the problem, CONTROL by government is the answer. And if course, that control doesn’t apply to them, or the government, just the peons, hayseeds, and servants that need controlling. And the police force they already hate, will do the controlling for them.
      They have no future orientation, no ability to see logical outcomes, or inevitable consequences. It’s just a blind quest for power and control.

      Patrick Henry’s, “Give me Liberty, or give me death!”, is a radical concept for some these days.

      Political candidates should be rated on their stance for Liberty.

      If you can’t trust people with Liberty, how can you trust people with power?

    I’ve seen some of the pathetic clips from this “townhall” and no wonder people are declaring PDJT the winner 😀

    For those of you who are going through it now and who will soon, stay alert and stay safe. (Geez, it looks like it is going in at Myrtle Beach.)

        Very stupid. They want him to go to prison for altering a government map, lol. They are insane. And anyway, early forecasts from NHC did indeed show Alabama affected. So now they are arguing about the date of his tweet. So desperate to get rid of him, anything will do.

        • DeniseVB says:

          So why didn’t his staff print out that map? I remember most of the Gulf Coast was included in the pre-Bahama “cone of concern”, would be easy to find 😀 Or is Trumpy throwing some cat nip at the fake news “here, I’ll just draw my own cone to prove I’m right” LOL, I wouldn’t put it past him.

    Boris better watch what he says. His enemies are listening.

      Seems like Parliament has really tied his hands. Wonder if there is still some way he can make it happen. Some obscure PM technicality, help from the Queen, anything. Otherwise the UK is kind of done IMHO.

    I am posting this here as an example of how history gets twisted.
    On that day I was driving down Spruce St in Phila. saw the helo at Cobbs Creek Park. When I went to work that night the whole row of houses was on fire.
    The Mayor of Phila had given the ok to drop tear gas on house, not knowing that they had put gasoline along the roofs of the whole row of houses

    now read the article and the comments
